My new favorite fabric store & MiMicItMonday is BACK!! Featuring MimiG!

Happy New Year again!! Vacation is over and I hope everyone had an amazing holiday season. Although I was sick my entire vacation, I managed to get some rest but not much sewing done. I had so many plans to sew over my holiday break but my body had other plans. All I could do was gather inspiration while I tried to recover. A few week ago while out with my special guy he said he wanted to take me somewhere to eat...now anyone that knows me, knows how much I love to eat so I was down! As we were driving we literally stumbled upon the fabric store...I thought that was where he was taking me! It was a total surprise to both him and me...well I couldn't not go in could I?







So while I was visiting Shor I found some delicious scuba fabric. I went to this store 3 times before I bought it because I kept saying, its not the season for it.. but who says you can't have a little springtime in winter? .then I remembered this pic of Mimi G...


I ran back to Shor Fabrics in Newark and scooped up that scuba...and I was not disappointed that they still had a little left and I got all they had of this. I created my look by using Mimi G for Simplicity 1283 crop top extended of course, accented with finger holes on the sleeves and a circle skirt with a 3 inch waistband...super cute and super fun, let me know what you guys think.









Buckle up for an exciting ride in 2016 and as always in parting 
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 https://myeleven60.com/ 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...
