Color-block and Taffeta

I found a couple yards of this medium weight ponte fabric recently, I loved the pattern and color scheme, I had to keep it for myself!  I have plenty of bodysuits in my closet but I felt I needed one more (it's my thing).  I added thumbholes and ruffles to the sleeves and dug through my scrap fabric bin to find a piece of ribbing for the turtleneck

I am not a huge fan of miniskirts and can't remember the last time I wore one but for some reason I thought this taupe taffeta mini I made for a photoshoot would be the perfect companion.  I am wearing pumps from Zara and a vintage cross body purse that has my beloved Naomi Smalls keychain on it!

Plaid Flanel

I made this plaid zip up for a pop up shop last winter.  I love it because it is versatile and can be worn for fall, winter, and now spring.  I feel most comfortable in cropped tops and high waist bottoms but I love the drama of full length skirts/dresses so I decided to combined a cropped look with a floor sweeping hemline.

I am wearing Topshop black jeans and Narciso Rodriguez stiletto ankle booties.

Stroke of Midnight Velvet Gown

This gown has been available in the shop for awhile but I took it for a spin myself recently ;).  When I was designing it I wanted it to have a 1940's, old Hollywood glamour feel.  I will be adding a similar velvet dress to the shop soon in three colors, this new dress will be a more modern take on the Stroke of Midnight gown.

The original design is definitely made for those who love drama in their dresses,  It has long cape sleeves, several ruched areas, and a mermaid silhouette.  It also helps give an hourglass shape with its fitted waist and flare at the knee.  This velvet has quite a bit of give making moving a breeze so although it is more along the lines of formalwear it is very comfortable.

You can see additional photos and information about the dress at it's direct link here.

Vintage Patches & Cold Shoulder Love

Short post but it has been so long since I have made one that I have decided to share a new bodysuit featuring vintage sports patches that I adore!  I am currently trying to find a few more pairs to recreate this design as a limited edition piece in the shop.

New posts and handmade outfits coming soon, Happy New Year!

Sheer & Iridescent

It was love at first sight when I found this sheer fabric with iridescent patches.  The color changes at different angles and light making it a fun fabric to work with and wear.  I made a loose fit cardigan to throw over simple outfits for days where I want a little more pizazz.  

I wore it with a nude crop top and raison colored high waist pants, both of these pieces are also handmade.  Shoes and beret are vintage :).

October Mood

All black for October!  I will be adding this black mesh bodysuit to the Etsy shop soon but there will only be one available since materials are limited!  I wore it with a layered tulle skirt, Free People bralette, and Derek Lam heels.  I don't work with tulle much but wanted something full, slightly sheer, and frilly to wear with the bodysuit.
