Wardrobe Update – Shorts edition

Hi everyone!

Spring is (almost) here and I’ve been meaning to update some shorts. I had some free time so finally got down to work. Just hemming shorts to a new length makes a difference. See below for before and afters!

10.Deep Before

The print is really risqué but that’s one of the things I love about it! It’s not like 10.Deep to tread lightly.

Unfortunately, I don’t have before pictures of the JACK shorts I altered. Just image a wide self belt cinched with the waistband up and long straight legs that end above the knee. Basically a pair of paper bag shorts without any shape. By simply hemming the shorts, flipping the waistband down and switching out the self tie or a braided tie, it looked infinitely better. I also added snaps to the center front and the back pockets. I finished it just in time for my trip to Hawaii next week!

I have another pair of shorts in work. Will post as soon as I’m finished!

Happy sewing!

Sweater Scraps > Arm Warmers

Hi lovelies,

One of my coworkers cut the sleeves off this cashmere sweater and was going to toss them. They were so soft that I wanted to come up with an upcycle project and not have them go to waste. A couple minutes on the sewing machine later, I had a pair of new arm warmers!

Do you have an upcycle project you’d like to share? Shoot me a line!

I still have lots of clothing alterations to get through – there’s never enough time in the day. I’ll try to make some progress and post as I go!

Until next time!

Happy Halloween!

Hi guys!

Since the weather was so lovely this Halloween weekend, we decided to carve pumpkins outdoors. It was a lot more work than I remembered, but I’m happy with the end result. Of course I decided to carve Hello Kitty! >.<

This probably won’t be an annual tradition, but it was fun nonetheless! Hope you have a great Halloween!

Austin Adventures!

I just got back from Austin and had an amazing time! I went sky diving for the first time and had the best tacos. Delicious food, great friends, and new adventures – what else could I want?

Here are some fun photos from the trip! I just loved the hand tooling and embroidery on the cowboy boot at Allen Boots.

I can’t wait to go back and eat more Tex Mex…oh and see some friends.

Spring Scarves!

So working on a Saturday is kinda a buzz kill, especially on a nice day like today…but instead of feeling down, I got crafty and made some colorful scarves, perfect for Spring!

These literally take minutes to make and cost next to nothing…well, if you happen to have a purl merrow machine and fabulous fabric scraps from work!

 Can’t wait to go to Mood and pick up some inspiring prints! If I’m ambitious, I might even set up a stand Brooklyn Flea! Last weekend, the flea was outside in Ft. Greene for the 1st time this year…I love flea season, which thankfully, is all year round! 🙂

I have so many more projects up my sleeves! Stay tuned!

Until next time,

xoxo

besos

all my love

Happy Easter!

Wow…it has been a loooooong time since my last post.

No time like the present to rectify that. Spring is here and so is Easter!

Hope you like my non coventional Easter bouquet! I love the earthy look and they last so much longer than flowers!

HAPPY EASTER Y’ALL!

Glasses Galore

So I’ve had my vintage Geoffrey Beene glasses from Fabulous Fanny’s (see below) for quite some time now, and have been itching for a new pair.

Lo and behold, I stumbled onto MYM Optics today and started bidding away.

I ended up snagging 3 new pairs of glasses without breaking the bank.

               

I can’t wait to get lenses in these suckers!

Whoa…I just realized how patriotic my choices were…and I’m not even American!
