Black Leather and Delicate Lace

Believe in yourself at all times and in all aspects of your life.
I forgive people, but that doesn’t mean I trust them. I just don’t have time to hate people who hurt me, because I’m too busy loving people who love me.
The first to apologize is the bravest.
The first to forgive is the strongest.
The first to move forward is the happiest.
Be brave. Be strong. Be happy. Be free.

Refuse to be unhappy; be cheerful instead.
Refuse to let your troubles multiply; just take them one by one.
Refuse to complain about things; learn to improve your surroundings
and create your world the way you believe it should be.
Refuse to dwell on the mistakes or disappointments
that are sometimes a part of life;
instead learn how you can make things better.

Be optimistic.
Be energetic and positive about the things you do,
and always hope for the best.
Believe in yourself at all times and in all aspects of your life.
Before you know it , those wonderful dreams
you have believed in all your life will come true,
and your life will be the happy and successful life
that it was meant to be.

Hi Everyone, 
Hope you guys are doing great, and ready for a new week. Today I had to share this compilation of beautiful quotes that my dear friend Hilary shared with me. It's amazing how things always come to you at the right time, because I needed these reminders this morning. Hopefully, it helps you too. 

Be blessed.

DIY: Lace pencil skirt

'If there is magic on the planet,

it is

contained in the water.'

Loren Isley

 Listen guys, made this skirt in less than thirty minutes, and I can barely sew, so if you can sew it would take you ten! I wasn't too sure it would come out properly so I didn't take photos during the process -sorry :(

I simply laid another pencil skirt on top of the fabric as a pattern then cut out.
Pinned the fabric together making sure the seam was in the back.
Then folded the fabric and straight stitched down. Voila!
I was making this to wear over my bikini so I didn't put a waist band in, but I would take this another step forward by adding a waist band with an inch wide elastic.
I would recommend finishing the hem. But not too bad for a beach cover up huh? ;) I gotta learn to use my sewing machine :(

I also have a tight mini skirt in the same colour that I'm planning on wearing under the lace for another look.Here are clearly laid out instructions from Cotton and Curls on how to make a pencil skirt. Let me know if you try this DIY and please share how you learned to sew. 

Thanks for stopping by :)

Just me...

If there ever was a look that embodied everything that I stood for in fashion, it would be this one... 

Sequin lover: Ideally for the 'Holiday season' but I am a girly girl and I thrive on mixing glam with grunge, I love the paradoxal play. I also love black because it looks good on me. Luckily it is a colour that is timeless- and always seems so powerful and in control. It also says I am not chasing trends, but that I'm dressing for my body type.

Black blazer: I have gained back weight over the summer so the cropped blazer covers my arms and made me more comfortable, hence more at ease and therefore happy.  Listen the art of dressing well is being comfortable. Don't get me wrong, that waist trimmer I had under the bodysuit was VERY uncomfortable but I that was only for the shoot ... I can't pull off wearing a waist trimmer out to an actual event and expect to be happy. 

 DIY jeans: though some lightly distressed high waist jeans would have been better with this look, I am on a tight budget, so I wore what I had- and decided not to buy anything new. There's no need to go crazy buying everything new ladies, just reinvent what you already own. I'm the Frugal fashionista

Leopard shoes: com'n I know I love leopard too much, but the rose gold in the body suit needed the browns in leopard to anchor the look ☺️ the sturdy round toe shoes gave me the height and balance I needed. I wish Steve Madden would make this shoe style in other colours- as I have them all. I stick with what works for me. Creature for habit.

Red lips: Can be dated sometimes, but I always feel glammed up and it wakes up my face, I used MAC's Cherry liner then topped with Orange from Jordanna and topped with MAC's Morange in the centre. I went more on trend with the winged liner and the glitter underliner for a quick makeup update. Cut to today, where it seems I had an allergic reaction to the glitter or gold liner.:(

Vintage: the black purse- I think we should always add something vintage to your look, I've said it before, it adds interest to your look, also it is a conversation piece and prevents everyone from looking the same. 

That's it- what do you guys think?

Hi Everyone! 
This lightweight sweater features a round neck with a floral vegan leather panel at front. I love the leather done in a delicate design, tough but still very soft- which is how I like to mix up things when I get dressed.
I can see myself wearing this sweater with a cobalt blue pencil skirt and some strappy dainty heels- stay tuned for the remix ;)  admittedly this could be seen more as a fall sweater, but I love black and I will only stop wearing black when they make a darker colour ;) this look is perfect for a girls night out!

Brick red and navy

I think about the good things I have in my life: 
from family and friends, 
from food and shelter,
to work I truly love, 
to a body that allows me to move through a world so incredibly amazing and ...
I can't believe how lucky I am to be alive!

 'Some day we will find what we are looking for -
or maybe we won't. 
Maybe we will find something much greater than that'

Hey everyone, 
turns out I do remember to compile a blog post ;) 
Summer is here already and midriff season is almost upon us * cringe * time to dust off those gym clothes and lay off the bread. 
I liked the pairing of this soft skirt and anchored with the caramel browns in the wrap vegan leather belt and the textured suede clutch. 
Went with the pearl spike necklace to add a little edge to a soft palette.
