Debut :: Clutch my friendship

Hello everyone, so in case you're wondering what I meant by debut, I decided to start selling my clutch purses! So I will be showcasing my designs in my outfit posts. 

I started making my own fabric clutch purses because of a lack of variety out there and people have since asked me about buying them. So as i post, if you see something you like shoot me an email and I'll send you the specs. 

All my clutches are made with leather and ankara fabric (or some just with ankara fabric) and they have a sturdy structure to them. This particular one has strips of leather going down to separate the different fabrics (this purse has 5 different ankara fabrics!) 

Yesterday was friendship sunday and we invited our friends over to church and had a ton of fun (like you can't tell from my overly chessy smiles)
It was a blast and i got to rock my newest babies, the silver metallic pumps from alonai.

Hello lovelies,
Long time no see! I'm sorry for sounding like a broken record but...graduation was not the end of the road for me, oh no indeed. I had to study for a couple of months in order to pass my board licence examination. And guess what, I did!!! It was a lot of work but I did it! Yay me.
Anyways between spending 10 hours a day at the library, I really was not in the mood for taking pictures but I'm slowly working into it again.
PS: I got this sandal from Payless for $4.50!
Original price:$9.00
Talk about a deal!
Thanks for stopping by!
s/o to Vivi for taking these pictures!

This shade of green: Ankara print blazer and velvet dress

Happy new week everyone! Some of you already know that I am one of those people who dress up to church every sunday. Its just part of who I am like, I'm a scorpio, I design clutch purses, I wear makeup, I love sushi, I dress up to church. Just like that. Anyways, this is what I wore to church yesterday. I very rarely wear this velvet dress by Anne Klein because it is hot! literally hot. But it was so cold yesterday that it was perfect.

This ankara print blazer was designed by me but sewn by a professional seamstress. I just love the descending peplum detail and the silver lapel lining. I had fun designing this and was so impressed with how it came out. The black circles on this fabric are actually done in velvet which is what made me pick out this particular fabric.

By the way, say goodbye to the red hair, because the next time you'll see me i'll be as dark haired as they come. (Switching it up!). Thanks for stopping by! And have a blessed week ahead

Spring in the winter: Florals and a blazer

If someone had told me two days ago that the weather would make a drastic change from the 20's to the 60's, I would said they were joking for real because the cold seemed like it would last forever in its intensity. But yesterday, I opened up my window to such lovely weather the type that I haven't felt in a long while. So I decided to utilize it because there is no telling when the cold shall return.

I paired up this Asos legging with a simple black tee and one of my thrifted blazers. I particularly like this blazer because of its heavy fabric and clean cut. The color doesn't really pop out on camera but it is a lovely pale yellow color and I though it highlighted the legging appropriately. 

By the way, nobody is happier than I that low heels are coming back in style these days. Low heels, I can do and I love compared to the tall heels. I mean, I'll wear them but I always have a pair of flats in my purse for when they get tiring. But with my low heels, I can wear them all day and barely feel a pinch. 

 Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely, sun filled week!

Out in the snow: Studs and a cape

The weather has been freezing over here lately, going out has become something of an inconvenience. But I have found that with the right layering skills, dealing with the cold is not so horrible. My roomie and I were craving some sushi on Friday and decided to hit up a local Japanese restaurant introduced to me by Vivi of Heart, print and style (thanks girl!) The sushi there is pretty much amazing and since I am a newbie sushi lover, I think they will be seeing me on the regular there. 

This PU leather cardigan is a treasure I found at my local Kmart! So is the cape. Their Love Your Style plus size line is pretty okay. They have a lovely collection of tops, jeans and if you're lucky, cute blazers.

Thanks for stopping by! And have a lovely week ahead.

Go camo go: Jeweled collar & arm candy

Hello lovelies! the camo trend is one I'm currently favoring. Especially since I had no difficulty finding the perfect one for my body type. I got this piece from Old Navy (despite the bad reviews) and let me tell you, I love it! The fabric is sturdy enough to keep out the cold but still light enough for me to wear during the warmer days. And for the icing on the cake, I got this bad boy for less than $20! Is that a steal or is that a steal?!

The camo look is usually pulled off as a casual look but I decided to step it up a notch and go for a more polished, casual look with the bedazzled shirt underneath the sweater. This gave me extra warmth as well because it was near freezing. But you can definitely try this look with just a slouchy sweater, skinny jeans and  some flats for the casual look.

I recently decided to take the time out and make some arm candy for myself. Sometimes it really makes no sense to buy mass produced jewelry while I'm a jewelry designer so i decided to make some for me. I made a total of 10 pieces and lets just say arm candy indeed! I'll do a post on them soon.

P.S: Photo credits go to Vivi of Heart, print and style.
Thanks for stopping by! Lots of hugs and love!
