The Best of 2014...

Happy New Year's Eve Lovelies!
It's the end of the year and as usual I am recapping my favorite outfits of the year 2014. I personally feel like the year 2014 has been one of the best years of my life. I turned 21, started sewing and the best of all graduated from college. I also discovered that I finally became my own person this year, I became a young woman who is confident in herself and proud of the fact that she is a child of God. Honestly there were ups and downs this year but I just thank God that I am alive and healthy enough to celebrate the ending of a year and the beginning of a new one...:)
In regards to fashion and my personal style, I believe I am now settled on the fact that my style is very bold, feminine and pretty much conservative. So below are some of my favorite outfits of the year!

My Justfab Shoes Picks...

Happy Wednesday Lovelies!
I hope you are having a lovely week so far. Since I have been such a lazy blogger and I have not had time to take my outfits pictures. I decided to share my Justfab picks/wishlist with y'all. I love shoes but lately I have not really been in the mood for them since I am kinda focused on my sewing. But I still get my Justfab picks every month since I am a Brand Ambassador. For those that do not know, Justfab is a subscription shoe website that have a variety of shoes, bags, jewelry and even clothes for $39.95. I really like this month's selection and below are some of my favorites with their links.
I recently got the Hadleys and Fawne in the mail and I am so in love with both. The "Hadley looks similar to my Aminah Jillil Bow pumps from this post HERE and the "Fawne" pumps is just so unique yet very sexy with the straps. Anyways, hopefully I will get the chance to take some outfit pictures and should have a casual look up on Friday.
Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Sewing 101: My Personal Tips for learning how to sew...

Happy Wednesday Lovelies!
I hope you are having a wonderful week. So I thought I would do something different on the blog today. I have been getting lots of questions and emails in regards to my sewing and how I learned how to sew.  As most of you probably know I just started sewing about 4 months ago and I had no previous experience, never went sewing school but I was determined to learn. So I brought out my  sewing machine I got on sale over a year ago, did some research online and then watch tons of YouTube videos. In this post I will be sharing a start kit for a beginner and some of my personal tips. I personally believe anyone can sew as long as they have the patience and are willing to learn. I would never had considered a person that is creative and can sew but here I am sewing and actually loving it. Here is a couple things you would need to get started:
