Something Blue

Over the weekend a friend and I hosted a baby shower for a friend in our mommy group, it was thrown at Shout restaurant in the wine room. I asked all the attendees to dress to impress as we celebrate our mommies little boy coming.

I knew exactly what to wear, I found this great vintage dress at my local Value Village for under $5.00. I paired it up with grey snake open toe sling back heels, gold vintage belt all from Value village. Yes my whole outfit was thrifted for under $12.00!

Heres a few images of our lovely day…

Refashion: Vintage Dress

I bought a sew machine a few months back and its been sitting in my closet ever since. So since its a rainy day here in Atlanta I decided to pull my Brother machine out and alter a few items that I cant give away, so why not alter them so I can fit them again! I came across this dress while going through my closet.

So the dress falls below my knees and I felt it wasnt really flattering for my body so I decided to cut it shorter and hem it, heres how it looks cut and hemmed.

Im so proud of my self, I know its not that big of a refashion but its a start! Now Im gonna go through my closet and see what else I can alter.

Lady in Green

Sunday I attended the Talking with Tammi Luncheon you can read all about here, I want to share what I wore to the luncheon. Tammi stated “dress to impress”, so I wore this little green dress I found at a warehouse boutique sale. I believe I picked this dress up for $10.00 t0 $12.00 in the spring time, can you sale deal!!! The shoes our vintage Tahari, with a gladiator look I won them on EBAY for $20.00. My clutch is by Nnkea Saran, one of my favorite bag designers, I own about 4 of them and had one custom-made just for me!

I enjoyed the luncheon so much and learned some great tips for my blog, a few things Tami touched on:

Use Google Adds on your blog
Make your site pop
Write about babies (fashion, baby shower, etc.)
Use key words
Watermark your images
Use professional images
Always use thumbnails
Co-op with other bloggers

Tami invited two surprise guest speakers, reality star Quad Lunceford Webb from Married to medicine and reality star/fashion designer Reco Chapple from Fashion Show on Bravo.

Reco owns a boutique called House of Chapple and is starting a new men’s line to add to his collection. His plans for the near future is expand his empire with stores across the United States.
