Good morning! Because I love fashion, I decided I am going to start posting more on my personal style. Sometimes I get a little crazy. 😄 I hope it’s inspirational and inspires others to embrace their own personal style. Live a little. #fashion

Barbie Beach Tunic

I’ve been dreaming of this far away beach all winter long and finally got to put my toes in the sand! In prep for the trip, I decided to make this new swimsuit coverup. I had some bright pink lycra in my fabric pile and paired it with this fun vintage trim from my grandma. We shot at the beautiful Salt Pond Beach in Kauai.

Celestial Dress

I went to the fabric store in search of fabric for my black sequin dress //just posted// and hence, a different sequin fabric caught my eye!  I’m like a barracuda…I like shiny things. I draped and hand sewed this dress on my mannequin as sewing machines don’t take to sequins very well. I especially love the unexpected peak-a-boo in the back!

007 Bond Dress

I’ve had this sequin fabric for a couple of years and finally used it.  I’ve never sewn evening wear before so this was a fun new challenge.  The bodice is stretch jersey, patent leather and mesh. We shot in the Yellow Room at the Guthrie in Minneapolis.  If you’ve never been, it’s worth checking out!
