Style Pantry + Mimi G. Collaboration

Happy Friday!

Today I am skipping the "daily look" and instead am sharing the 2nd part of the Folake + Mimi Collaboration!

Last week you may remember she posted her first look inspired by the film "Snow White & The Huntsman" and today Folake posted the 2nd look of a 3 look series. When Folake and I sat down to go over what she wanted I went home and sketched some ideas, it was almost immediate how quickly she and I connected and so based on my sketches I moved forward; first creating the Big Bow Skirt which initially was going to be yellow and then she decided on a regal black look ;-) and today she is showing out!! in my Kelly Green Slacks and Exaggerated Sleeve Peplum Top.

This is the sketch I did after we first met...



Folake Wearing Mimi G.


Excerpt from Folake's blog post: This is my second Snow White and the Huntsman inspired look in collaboration with NBC Universal (see first look here). Again I collaborated with the fabulous Mimi G. to create this outfit. Starting from pencil and paper, it’s amazing to see Mimi’s and my vision alive in this outfit.

  24. This is a gorgeous outfit! I NEED those pants, LOL. I can't to see what you cook up for us over the Holiday weekend. :-)

  25. Gotta love the 9 heads-esque sketches. Lol . Like the look A lot. The colors are fab. Sometimes I think exaggerated shoulders should come into the bodice shoulder seam 1/2"-5/8" to give more definition. But it looks so good. The peplum rocks on her, giving her that Lauren Hill, modern '70s vibe. Go Mimi

    And even the bow skirt, I would have loved to see that in yellow. Yellow would have made that pop beyond words. I can't wait to see the third and final look.

  28. I just have to tell you how much in love I'm with you, and no, I'm not a lesbian (nothing against anybody, please). I can't get enough of you. Found you on Pinterest, and have watched most of your videos on youtube. I have a goal that by next year I'll sew most of the clothes I'll wear and you have shown me that's possible. Thanks for sharing your gift. I have never followed any blog but yours is so worth it. Thank you, Thank you.
