What to Wednesday: The Red Lace Dress

Hey Loves!

I'm back work another inexpensive outfit.   Warming is not the $50 steal from last week.  If not for the cost of the shoes, this outfit would be under $50 too.

Sleeveless blazer: Simply 10
Dress: BCBG Max Azria
Shoes:  JustFab
Belt: Wal-mart

So where did this outfit come from? My brain ad my kids say.   Of course, I was inspired by a few things I saw on Pinterest.  I really wanted to wear this steal I found while outlet shopping during spring break so, I put this together.

Let's talk about this dress.  I love the fit as I have all the BCBG dresses I've owned.   I was sad to find out the BCBG factory store was closing, but glad when I heard the price.  This dress was marked down to $23.00 and the last one in the store.  Perfect for me.   I could see me wearing this to church, work,  and even out on the town.   Shoes and accessories will make it work for any of them.

BCBG Factory Store $23.00
Here's the cost breakdown:
  • Dress: $23 BCBG Factory Store 
  • Belt: $3 Wal-mart 
  • Sleeveless Blazer: $8 (Simply 10)
  • Shoes: $39.95 JustFab
  • Earrings: Gifted
Total cost for the outfit: $73.95

I love a fashionable outfit at a small price!

To the office with the  blazer
To office dinner without it

Until next time,  Smooches!

What's Hot Here?

Congratulations Are In Order, Part 1: DIY Wedding Gift

This past weekend my big little guy was in a wedding. I love weddings so I was very excited. The four of us (and all the bags) piled in the Tahoe for the road trip. It was quite the adventure, but it was worth every minute.

Back to what you came here for the DIY project.

One night while searching Pinterest, I found this really cool print:
I thought it would be a great gift for a couple.  I even thought it would be for my bedroom (I'm seriously considering making one for us).  So, when I was thinking of the perfect gift for this wedding, my mind immediately went back to this idea.

I thought about how I could make this idea my own.  I came up with this: I took this before I decided to add the year they were married to the center top.

Here's what I used: Frame & Mat:  I was prepared to make my own mat, but I found a frame that included the perfect mat  for 3 5" by 7" prints at Ross.Map: You can buy an atlas or map.  OR You can do like me.  I used Google maps t…

Lesson Learned

McCall's 7047 Modified Using Simplicity 1072
Hey Loves!

I'm so excited about today's Tip Tuesday. It's actually a combination of Me Made Monday and Top Tuesday. I get really excited to see other people wearing my creations especially when they feel good in them.  She looked gorgeous and said she felt gorgeous.  That's all that matters!

The two piece ensemble was her vision.   I immediately knew I'd use McCall 7047 to make it.   I'm always using it for different projects and knew it could easily be adjusted to meet her need. It definitely fit the bill. Here's a link to my review of this project.

So let's talk about the fabric.   It's a quilted knit from Joann Fabrics.   I used the same fabric in boysenberry to make this cardigan. (Here are links to the black and boysenberry quilted knit fabrics.)  I love different fabrics.   I guess it's one of my things.   I love texture of this fabric.   I also love the elasticity.   It has a close stitch w…

Spring Wardrobe Is In Bloom

Hey Loves!
I'm really glad I joined this challenge. I've been thinking about doing a capsule wardrobe for a while. I just never got the nerve to do it. This took creating a capsule wardrobe to another level. And I'm up for he challenge!

And a challenge it is...I started on my items on 3/4/17. I had to think long and hard about my plan and how to execute it. My fabric stash is pretty large so I only plan to buy one item for this project. Cheers to me for resisting the urge to buy new fabric for this challenge.

I saw a few project inspirations in catalogs. Then, the ideas started to come together. Based off one inspiration pic, I knew navy blue would be in my project. Since navy is now considered a neutral, I needed a little color to go with the navy. I found pink and a perfect floral in the fabric stash. I love pink and florals so that was perfect. Add in white and i think it's complete. All of my favorites in one place.

Now what's on my list? What's the plan? …
