Hi Loves! It has been a while since I posted but I have not stopped thinking about ideas and things I want to accomplish this year. One of them is sewing at least one garment a month for myself. I am going to conquer my fear of zippers and button holes this year. So, I bet your wondering how this all ties into a Girls' Night Out.
Well, here you go. My friends and I went to see the awesome John Legend. He's such a cutie and his voice is to die for. He sounds just like his recorded work. Not only is he a great singer, he is also a philanthropist. He was the featured speaker at the 25th Realizing the Dream Concert. I jumped on the opportunity to support a good cause and listen to some awesome music. I was pleasantly surprised to hear him speak so passionately about his philanthropic work.

So, what is a girl to do about an outfit?! Well, she's supposed to make it of course. In the wee hours of Sunday morning, I began to work on an outfit for the Sunday night rendezvous with my girls. One hour later, I had a crop top and a maxi skirt.
Here are the details:
- Jewelry - Gifts and old pieces
- Scarf - Won playing dirty Santa
- Jacket - $20 Steinmart (similar here)
- Boots - Gift from hubby (similar here)
- Crop top - Re-purposed maternity shirt (Tutorial)
- Maxi Skirt - (Similar here) (Tutorial)

I'm really proud of my outfit, too. I have been really nervous about starting this sewing journey but I stepped out anyway believing that I can do it. How fitting that I wore my first outfit to a MLK event?!
I'm going to leave you with this quote:
Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (Source: http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/authors/m/martin_luther_king_jr.html)
Step out on faith. Live your dreams.
Smooches until next time,
