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!

#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...
