I love houndstooth. I love plaid and I love b&w together. I couldn't have been more excited to find this fabric because it has everything I love in one print!! I made this sheath dress last week and have worn it a few times and have gotten so many compliments. The fabric is light weight, drapes so nicely over the body and is comfortable to wear. I love that this print can be dressed up or down. You can wear it with pumps and a blazer to the office or with a moto jacket and booties for a casual look on the weekend (worn here - PS I had the pleasure of meeting Julia from Gal Meets Glam at the Alice + Olivia event). If anyone is interested, I am adding this dress to my Etsy store!
Omg this dress is so warm...I wore this in 60 degree weather and I had to take off my jacket! I've been wanting to make a sweatshirt (fabric) dress for the longest time since it's always a little chilly in SF, but never found any sweatshirt fabric with a pattern that I really liked until now. This dress is so comfy and cozy, it would be perfect for ladies that live in cooler climates.

Hello blog friends and readers! I know it's been quite awhile since I've posted. I've been super busy and a little lazy. :P Anyway...what is everyone up to for V-day? I don't have too many exciting plans, but my bf says he has a little surprise for me later. Can't wait to see what it is! :D
DIY Raglan Top + Bias Skirt (fully lined). Available for Custom Order - email me for info!
I also ordered the Rockstar in Ankle-Zip Blue Ridge (27" inseam, 26.75" waist, 7" rise, 10.5" leg opening) and French Grey (28" inseam, 27" waist, 8" rise, 9.5" leg opening).
I returned the ankle jeans because the inseam was too short to be regular length and too long to be ankle length on me. I also thought the leg opening was also too wide. I wasn't crazy about the French Grey color (too light) in person and the inseam was a tad too long.
BR Trench. (similar here). I rarely wear this jacket because of the 3/4 sleeves. I realized I have jackets/coats with the same length sleeves and I never wear them either because my arms get cold easily. Note to self, don't buy coats that do not cover my entire arm. If I have time, I might undo the coat and sew on full length sleeves!
BP Pointed Pointy Toe Flat in Black + in Leopard. Size 5 (sized down 1/2 size). I never wear flats, because my feet are so accustomed to heels. Every time I try on flats, they just don't feel that comfortable except for these! They are so cute and I love the pointed toes too.
Here's also a few OOTD from last week via instagram (for those who don't follow me or have IG).
