Italian (in) Lace

Most of the things I post on this blog are about fashion, beauty, and lifestyle, but this post is a little different. Sewing is one of my favorite things to do and I’ve made a bunch of articles of clothing with the use of patterns from brands like McCall’s, Vogue, Simplicity, and a whole bunch more. The fabric store is my favorite place to spend money and I’m always looking for a new project to look for. Recently I found a pattern for a really beautiful bralette. Unfortunately, the lace I needed was hard to find and pretty expensive so I decided not to make it. However, it got my wheels turning and I realized I didn’t need a pattern!

I created this bralette basing the shape off a bathing suit, and using a dress form and my self as a model. Somehow the sizing got a little messed up and ended up a little small, so I gave it to my friend. I’m super happy with the way it turned out and my friend looks beautiful.

Hella Hanukka

The holiday season is upon us! My entire feed is filled with Christmas wishlists, Christmas swearers, and Christmas trees so I decided to change it up a little. When was younger my school would have holiday assemblies where we could wear Santa hats and would sing jingle bells. I didn’t own a Santa hat and there was nothing Hanukkah themed for me to wear so I often felt a little left out. Finally, people are including Hanukkah in their holiday spirits and now Hanukkah themed clothes surround us! There is some really cute stuff out there and I can’t wait to buy it all!

Tipsy Elves is the funniest, coolest website for Hanukkah sweaters. They’re funny and fuzzy, and a great price!

Etsy is another great site for Hanukkah sweaters and Hanukkah themed clothes. I actually bought this one from here and my only warning is to buy way in advance because sometimes the shipping takes forever. Other than that, I love this sweater and I’ve gotten so many compliments on it.

Absolute Socks

I have never bought from this site before but the reviews are good and their socks are so cute! I have been asking all my friends and family for cute Hanukkah socks so I’m really hoping I get some.

Party City

My mom just bought these for me and I am so excited to wear them to school. I have a pair for 4th of July and St. Patricks day, so I’m happy to continue my collection. _ml_p2p_pc_carousel_badge

The latest haul

Black Friday scares me a little so I decided to pass on it and go shopping on Saturday. There were still tons of sales and I’m super excited about what I bought.

Grey cardigan: I bought this from Mandee, a store with not the greatest quality clothing but they are going out of business so I figured I should take a look. The whole store was 40-60% off so the cardigan was only $20.00! The cardi is super comfy and I can wear it with a bunch of different outfits.

Black suede ankle boots: I have been wanting a pair of boots like these for so long so when I saw these on sale in DSW I had to buy them. The heel is the perfect height that I an dress them up or down and the inside has a nice insole so they’re pretty comfy.

Clinique “take the day off” makeup wipes: Have I ever mentioned how much i love Clinique? I think I have 1…maybe 5 times. Anyway I bought these wipes and they’re super great. They were only $15.00, have 50 wipes, and work really well.
