My Sister’s Custom Wedding Dress

Writing this post is proving to be a little more difficult than I expected. I am so excited to share these pictures of my absolutely gorgeous sister. And to show the dress that has been like my baby for the past several months. It’s just difficult to find the words that describe the experience of… Continue reading My Sister’s Custom Wedding Dress

Floral Bridesmaid Dress and Ridiculous Faces

You are welcome in advance for the ridiculous faces that I make. I knew I had a tendency to do this, but considering the last 2 weddings I have been in and the pictures that have resulted out of them, this is apparently a thing that I do, not just a tendency. Enjoy. I would… Continue reading Floral Bridesmaid Dress and Ridiculous Faces

Pattern Mixing and Wool for Spring

I wanted to get one last wear in of my wool skirt before it would be deemed ridiculous to be wearing wool. Though with the way this winter played out, most of the time it was ridiculous to be wearing wool. Oh well. I paired the skirt with one of my favorite shirts that I… Continue reading Pattern Mixing and Wool for Spring

Stylish

The idea behind this post has been brewing in the back of my brain for a few months now. Style. I read this list a few weeks ago and thought that it had some good merit to it. It didn’t list following trends and splurging on the 10 must haves for every closet, both of… Continue reading Stylish

Layered Up

My new obsession as of late is layering dresses over a white button up. It began with my houndstooth dress. The day I premiered the dress it was a bit of a cold and dreary day. I have a tendency to be cold natured and didn’t want to spend my day shivering. Typically people would… Continue reading Layered Up

Houndstooth Dress (Original Design)

Some projects in life require a lot of trial and error. This dress is one of those projects. The entire dress ended up being made twice, and not to be outdone, the photoshoot required a reshoot as well. At least there was consistency throughout! I have loved this navy and tan houndstooth fabric from the… Continue reading Houndstooth Dress (Original Design)

I designed and made it a few years ago, and it is still a piece that I love because of its comfort and ease of wearing. It’s bra friendly, yay! Long enough… Continue reading Original Dress Design

Bridal Brunch

It occurred to me today that my bridal shower is this weekend and I have yet to share anything from the wedding! And yes. That’s how we roll, wedding events after the actual wedding. Tradition is not really our thing. Our wedding took place quickly after our engagement for several different reasons. Which meant that… Continue reading Bridal Brunch

Easy Dress Refashion: Front Pleat

This may be the easiest and most transformative refashion I have ever done. So easy in fact that I undid and redid it for this post. Trust me when I say that means something. I loathe redoing work. I bought this dress about 2 years ago at the wonderful Target for I think somewhere in… Continue reading Easy Dress Refashion: Front Pleat

Sparkles and Sneakers

I find myself in New Orleans yet again! I swear I do not come to this city that often. My parents just happened to invite us along for some museum action. History nerds unite! We are checking out the new addition to the WWII museum. My dad is a member… I do come by my… Continue reading Sparkles and Sneakers
