Todays Vlog + What I Wore

HI!! This video is a long one, LOL but I had so much to catch up on ;-)



What I Wore...
I am a huge fan of Zara and their blazers, pants, shoes, everything, lol I picked up my blazer a few weeks ago and love it! The forever 21 jeans are one of my favorites because of the wide bell bottom and I can always find great jeans at F21. I just picked up about 10 different tanks/t's from the GAP, I <3 Gap!

Zara Blazer, F21 Jeans, Gap Tank 


Necklace from NY& Co., Clutch Big Buddha


 What I Wore...Yesterday
Yesterday was a busy day and I needed comfort!
I gotta tell you every time I go to H&M I leave happy, lol they have really great stuff and it's a great place to find trendy items for your wardrobe. The denim jacket I have on is from American Eagle which is another place I frequent for great jeans and tops!

Dress H&M, Sketchers Sneakers, Coach Bag, American Eagle Denim Jacket

 Fabric Info

Many of you have asked where to find a print similar to the one I used in the pic above and my dear friend @ High End Fabrics just sent me several yards of this fabric which is pretty close (color wise) to my original print, it is gorgeous in person and has such a great hand; it is a Tencel Gabardine Woven Fabric. Here is his link ;-) 

Also, if you are ever looking for the best most fabulous fabrics make sure to visit www.gorgeousfabrics.com they carry an amazing assortment of fabrics and great prints/knits too. I can personally vouch for the quality and beauty of their fabrics.

Remember when I said I went fabric shopping? LOL here is my haul ;-)

  1. Fabric Haul = Heaven! When you posted that your husband with you. I kindly pointed out to my husband "see her husband supports her fabric habit" So far so good, he said nothing with that box of fabric arrived on Monday.

  8. Can I just say I'm about 2 seconds from cutting my hair into a pixie like yours, girl you hair is fabulous, as well as this outfit is. Now on to the fabric lol, can't wait to see what you are going to do with it. My stash is shameful cause it's just sitting lol outside of what I've been sewing for my shop I haven't made anything for myself.

  14. MiMi you are incredible! I have been sewing for a long time. I am 6 ft. tall and have challenges with RTW fitting correctly which is why I sew. Your tutorials are not only informative for beginners but for us intermediate sewers too! I love your tutorials. Keep them coming! I love your fabric stash!

  15. Love both outfits, especially the white blazer against the royal blue tank! I'm so excited about the new tutorial...THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

    BTW, wish you were local to me in case you offer classes. Although I can sew I definitely learn lots from you. Good luck with your pursuit of teaching, I would definitely be a supporter if you decided to market videos, etc.

  17. Can't wait for the tutorial! I only have to hem my shameless copy of your green V1250. The dress is 10x better when made to your shape.

  18. Can't wait for the tutorial!!! I only have to hem a dress shamelessly copied and inspired by your V1250. The pattern looks so much better when made to your shape instead of just hanging on it. Thanks so much for the inspiration!!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Firstly, thanks so much for answering my question (the machine is in the shop as we speak getting oiled and such), and for the great tip about using graphing paper. Secondly, I am in love with your blazer collection, and your style as a whole. You are so inspirational, and I can't wait to try some of your tutorials.
