How to Style a Basic Tee

T-shirts are a “must have” in everyone’s wardrobe.  They are extremely comfortable, they can be dressed up or down, and they’re pretty much a classic staple that can be worn years to come.
pgs2So I’ve teamed up with the oh so fabulous Adrienne from Adrienne’s Essentials to show you guys how you can style a basic t-shirt. I freakin love her!!! I’ve been following her work for a few years now and I must say, that this is a dream come true for me to even do this collab with her.  I’ve included her looks below, but for more pictures, you can check out her blog post HERE.

Illusions

Are you trying to lose weight but the pounds aren’t falling off fast enough?  Are you losing the weight, but can’t seem to tell?  This skirt is for you! Last year, the illusion dresses was pretty popular.  It gave the illusion that you were slimmer than you really were.  Celebrities were seen everywhere on the red carpets and events sporting this look.celebs

This pattern gives the same effect, but the best part is, it’s customizable!  I was able to choose whatever print I wanted; solid or bold. (View D)
m6711pic The skirt was pretty easy to make as usual.  The waistband I think was the most time consuming, because I had to stitch it by hand.  I think it came out pretty nice though. What do you think?  Scroll below to see the easy to follow tutorial.

Transitioning into Fall: Circle Skirt

Fall is my absolute favorite season.  I love EVERYTHING about it. The smell, the food, and ofcourse, the clothes. So since Fall is around the corner, I decided to bring you the perfect Fall transitioning piece. Circle skirts are the best transitioning piece when it comes to Fall fashion.  They are perfect paired with bare legs or colored tights.

DSC_0165The pattern that I chose for this skirt is awesome for those that have never sewn a thing in their lives.  The steps in this pattern is extremely easy to follow and this skirt is so fast and easy that you may want to make more than one. I know I am!
1Black and white is a must have trend for Fall so I chose this black and white ethnic printed linen fabric. I absolutely love it! It’s color is toned down, yet the print is so bold. The fabric and pattern were both purchased at JoAnn Fabrics.

If not, allow me to enlighten you.  I decided to revamp my online shop and decided to sell accessories that I have in my closet. No, these are not used items.  All items will be carefully handmade by me and will be made to order.   I will be tailoring my shop to each new season to provide the best quality items for you as a consumer to look your best.  My shop has been closed for a little while now because i have been working long and hard coming up with fashionable items to upgrade your closet.  My shop is set to open on September 1, 2013.

To describe my NEW shop, I would simply describe it by stating that its “A modern take on afforable luxuries. Classic pieces to upgrade your clozet and to keep you ahead of today’s current trends.”

So allow me to first introduce you to my handbags.  I will have a permanent collection and I will have a seasonal collection.  The seasonal bags will only be short-lived.  They will last for only that season.  So, if you have your heart set on a bag, you better hurry up and grab one before they are all gone.
