Freestyle Friday & Giveaway Winners!!!!

Yay!!! It's Friday and it's a 3-day weekend...what are you guys doing this weekend? Let me know below. Well first things first...FREESTYLE FRIDAY!!!!
Anyone that knows me, knows I love my skirts and maxis...I even adore my wide legged palazzo pants. However I almost never ever wear jeans! Even on the occasional "dress down" day at work I don't do it. That's mostly in part to my shapely figure and I find it very hard to find jeans that fit me (insert sad face) UNTIL NOW THAT IS!!! The struggle is indeed real...I recently went back to Weight Watchers because I am trying to be the best me I can be. Now you might be saying, "She's fine!" "What does she have to lose?" It's not about the number on the scale its about what happens "Beyond The Scale" like taking care of the other parts of me physically, mentally, spiritually, etc. So occasionally I will throw in a FREESTYLE FRIDAY to let my hair down a little bit sew to speak...I'm really trying to broaden my fashion horizons, will you take the ride with me? I hope so!

See look just like the other LL said I'm an "Around The Way Girl"
I want a girl with extensions in her hair

Bamboo earrings at least 2 pair
A Fendi Bag and a Bad Attitude 
She can walk with a switch and talk with street slang

Standing at the bus  stop
Sucking on a lollipop

She's sweet as brown sugar with the candied yams 

Honey coated complexion using Camay
Let's hear it for the girl she;s from around the way

Now as an option for a second look I used Simplicity 1014 modified by making the sides longer and Mimi G cocoon sweater with finger openings...I used a winter white double knit/quilted ponte and I totally adore this look!!!

NOW TO THE GIVEAWAY WINNERS!! I appreciate the feedback I received for the leather dress and even more for the feedback on the contest for one of my personal Mimi G patterns. Because I sew want everyone to get bitten by the Mimi G bug... 4 of the ladies will be receiving a pattern... So Barbara, Alejandra, Quianna, and Tieraney congratulations...can't wait to see what becomes of these looks!!!

So until next time 
Have an amazing weekend and 
Keep it Sassy, Classy, Sexy, Period.

#MiMicItMonday Featuring KIerra Sheard!

Happy Monday folks!!! So anyone who has been following my blog knows that I enjoy #MiMicItMonday! It's where I get inspiration from everywhere and I make an attempt to recreate the look. Let me first say that I have been a huge fan of KIerra Sheard since she was a little girl. I have loved watching her evolution especially in the fashion world.
 She started and embraced the hashtag #LuvMyThick and at times that WAS hard for me to do, if you can believe it! Through my sewing and learning I am indeed Loving My Thick! I came across the peplum top yesterday on facebook on Kierra's page and I knew I had the perfect fabric to pull this off...Well here is KiKi"s and here's mine...let me know what you guys think!

To create this look I used McCalls 7021 for the top and Simplicity 1019 for the pants

So until next time,  Learn to Love Your Thick, and  Keep it Sassy, Class, Sexy, Period.

#FlashbackFriday!!!!/My most FAVORITE FABRIC FIND EVER!!!!

Before I jump into this #FlashbackFriday let me bring you guys up to speed... What a couple of weeks I’ve had!! You know when I started this blogging journey; I didn’t really know what I was getting into. Sewing is my sanity and if I didn’t have it, I might go absolutely mad! Since September I essentially was working 3 jobs (yes 3 jobs) Before Care, Day Job, and After Care. Now while this all took place in one location…I was drained working from 7am to 6pm. I started to notice that let alone was I not having enough time to blog; I was too exhausted to sew! My son who has Autism was doing okay at first but then started to have more frequent meltdowns. I also was in preparation to send my daughter back off to complete her senior year of college with financially issues!! So who do you think had a meltdown next? That would be me and I was not “Tickled Pink” about it! I had to do some reevaluating.

While I’m sure a lot of you might be saying “Show Me The Money”, I had to make a decision an…

I'm a Survivor!!!!!

I'm a survivor
I'm not gon' give up
I'm not gon' stop
I'm gon' work harder
I'm a survivor
I'm gonna make it
I will survive
Keep on survivin'- Destiny's Child

I am the epitome of "I don't look like what I've been through", Weighing in a 3 lbs 5 ounces and 3 months premature I was born a survivor. My hope for this blog is to be a beacon of light and hope for someone that doesn't think they can make it... YOU CAN!! I am far from where I want to be, but right where I need to be!
I've been working really hard over the last few weeks to get this blog off the ground...and what better season than Fall, where the weather and fashion can change like the color of leaves...

I know you must be thinking "Why now? Why at this time?" Well, I will tell you why, there is a reason why I did indeed pick this particular time and "SEASON" to share…
