RING THE ALARM!!!! I'M DONE WITH WINTER!! MiMicItMonday featuring Beyonce!!

 MiMicItMonday is back!! I needed a little break and I'll tell you guys why on Friday. What a week! 
 Now its no secret that  I have undoubtedly been a tad bit obsessed with winter white this season.  I put my little twist on this number from Beyonce's Ring The Alarm video. Why it's "Sassy,Classy, Sexy, Period." Pair it with a bold red lip, and pink leather boots and sound the alarm! 

To create this look: I used Simplicity 1283 and extended the crop top to make the dress.A Mimi G tutorial for  the cocoon sweater was used and  I used a 
mash-up of McCall's 6844 and 6442 to create the second coat/dress.

Although I love this winter white look and  due to the overwhelming amount of snow this weekend (28 inches) I  am sew over winter! I give up on the winter  for right now. I just wanna go outside for pics and enjoy the elements, but this here snow is messing up my vibe... I however reserve the right to change my mind, should some absolutely fabulous inspiration come my way. So back to the lab I go thinking of warmer inspiration. 

 So until next time...remember my friends to 
Keep it Sassy, Classy, Sexy , Period.


  1. I'm loving the winter white outfits and you look beautiful. Keep up the great work you are doing!

  2. Nice..loving da versatility. ..good job

  3. Lovely, Lawana! I love that jacket! You're trying to rush out of winter and I'm trying to get in some coats. LOL! Oh, how I wish we had some snow--I think. You look really cute in this ensemble. I love your bun too. Very sassy, classy, sexy, period! Get it girl!

Climbing my way back/My Favorite 17 looks of 2017!

I can almost see it
That dream I'm dreaming
There's a voice inside my head saying,
You'll never reach it...

Every step I'm taking
Every move I make feels,
Lost with no direction
My faith was shaking,
But I gotta keep trying
Gotta keep my head held high...

There's always gonna be another mountain
I'm always gonna wanna make it move
There's always gonna  be an uphill battle
Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose,
Aint about how fast I get there
Aint about what's waiting on the other side...

It's been a looooooong time since I last blogged, I've had a whole lot going on. When I first started the blog, it was for the main purpose of showcasing my sewing, however I discovered there are other layers to me besides sewing. Sewing has become a very huge part of my life since started way back in 2013. If you're new to the blog check out my very first post HERE!!!

Since I've been away for awhile, I thought I would post my 17 favorite l…

#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 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...
