    You asked, I listened {new tulle headbands}

    I posted this set of changeable flowers that I made for my hairdresser on Facebook & Twitter and you guys loved it! Many of you asked if I was going to have them for sale in the shop and after a quick trip to Hobby Lobby today I’ve decided to offer them. As soon as I posted them 4 were snatched up, but I still have 9 more available. They are beautiful tulle with fun feathers & buttons and are all changeable on the black headband. Flowers are handsewn and are all 2″ in size – a great addition to any outfit! Add some fun to your wardrobe with flirty…

    Shirt Refashion: Daisy Fuentes Tunic

    The other day while looking for fabric to make a skirt I found this dress. (excuse my face, I was multitasking by taking pictures while I was on the phone. now you know what I look like when I talk on the phone) I thought that I had already cut a chunk out of it but when I looked at it I realized that I hadn’t.

    Shirt Refashion: H&M $5 Shirt

    On black Friday my mom and I went shopping for Christmas gifts in the wee hours of the morning (actually, we started at midnight and shopped all night, thanks to the fact that I wanted to get a Dyson on the cheap).
