Soul Stroll 2014

Not only did I sew my heart out this weekend, I also joined my mom and a few of her coworkers in the African American Health Coalition’s (AAHC-Portland) Soul Stroll 5K Wellness Walk. The purpose of the Stroll was to raise awareness for health disparities in the African American community. It was a great community event with music, food, and dancing. We walked for a cause and had a LOT of fun! #winning

DIY Workwear

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend!

I spent my weekend experimenting with a DIY fashion project. I thought to myself I could use some new work clothes, so I pulled out mom’s dusty old sewing machine, made a trip to Jo-Ann Fabric, pulled some patterns and FABULOUS printed fabrics and got to work! I picked a flounce skirt pattern to start out with, and chose to sew the skirt using a beautiful snakeskin (I LOVE ANIMAL PRINT!) cotton sateen fabric. With a little beginner’s luck, the skirt turned out great if I do say so myself!

What do you think?
