BeetleDee and BeetleDum

My dear friend and fellow SCAD alum Devin Borden gifted me this work of art for my birthday. I've been asking Devin for one of his bug pieces for quite some time now and he finally followed through. I could not be more pleased with my gift, thank you Devin!

Birthday Blazer

I went crazy with this one. As seen from my birthday post this is the blazer I made for my Ultimate Grand Supreme ensemble.

As per usual made from my own patterns and fabric I have in my collection. Part Chanel, Part Alexis Mabille Couture, Part PHCIII it now sleeps peacefully in the archives.

Dandy DIY

This afternoon I stopped by one of my fav thrift stores after a brunch date with Abby and found these little beauties. I was most attracted to the color, part dove grey part old lady orthopedic, I had to have them! At a whopping $10 who could say no?

Now what to do about those weak tassels? I gathered up some trim I had lying around and got to work.

Using some jacquard ribbon and small buckles I constructed a couple bows to apply. Once completed I stitched them right on top of the tassels. Handsome, no?

I'm quite pleased with the outcome and with fashion week just around the corner I'm dying to take them out for a spin!

Spirit Animals

Took a break from my very busy schedule (sarcasm) to visit the Bronx Zoo with my friend and fellow animal enthusiast Scott Cooper.

Animals everywhere...

It was a great day!

Oh What a Night

Thank you so much to all my friends for making my special day the best one to date. What a blast!

One of my two yummy cakes from Sugar Sweet Sunshine.

I made the crown out of pipe-cleaners for a whopping $2 and the sash out of some spare fabric and trim I had lying around.

Thank you Nick and Brendan for hosting the party at your building, hope I didn't get you evicted!
