Hi Everyone!!!! Yes I know, I know. I’ve been gone for way too long, but I’m back! Can I just tell you how much I’ve missed blogging! So later on, I will be writing a blog post about why I’ve been gone. But for those of you who don’t follow me on Instagram (@cheapbutchic) or any of my social media sites, I’ll tell you that I have been extremely busy launching my business. But again, that’s a different blog post. For now, I will be supporting my dear friend, Yetunde Sarumi.
Yetunde aka Ye is a fellow DIY fashion blogger and one of my business partners in our growing company, Pretty Girls Sew. Ye launched her clothing line a few months ago and I cannot say enough good things about it. The prints are beautiful, it’s beautifully made, and it’s affordable. When she launched her pieces for the Summer, I went crazy over her Summer jacket and knew I had to have it. There are so many ways you can style this jacket which I am beyond excited about, but today, I decided to style it as my Sunday’s Best. I styled my Yetunde Sarumi jacket with a basic trumpet dress I made recently. I decided to pair my jacket with a black dress because I wanted my jacket to be the center of attention.
You can shop this jacket as well as all other fashionably trendy items on Ye’s online store. Link is below.
Ok. Ok. You guys should already know that I love black and I wear it just about everyday. I’m slowly trying to sneak it into my blog without it looking boring. When wearing black, something about your outfit or accessories should standout. Not necessarily like a pop of color, but just something. In a previous post, I wore a simple t-shirt dress and paired it with simple leopard sneakers. Well, I loved that dress so much, that I decided that I was going to recreate that dress but add something to it, so I added a flutted hem. All I did to make this dress was, create a pattern using my t-shirt dress that I own. It was quite easy. The dress took me a total of 3-4 hours to make. It was quick and I definitely plan on making another one. The fabric that I used was a one way knit fabric. I didn’t want too much stretch, but I wanted it to have some stretch and some movement to it. Also, the fabric that I chose, made the hem of the skirt move more freely and take it’s shape that I love so much. So, here is my look all pulled together. All accessory details will be listed at the end of this post.
Dress: DIY// Necklace: Charlotte Russe// Bag: Kate Spade// Heels: JustFab
Be prepared to see another dress like this because this is a must have in my closet. Do you love simple wearable dresses as much as I do?
