Bone Thugs N Plaid Friday

Happy Friday Everyone !!! the weekend is officially here and I am so ready.

With that, I decided to partake in casual Friday at the office.  At least 2 fridays out of the month, I stick with business casual and then there are times where I just straight up don a suit and all that corporate goodness on casual Friday.




This Friday tho... I was in Bone Thugs n plaid Harmony mode and put together this ensemble to reflect my mood.



Sears reversible vest (animal print/black), Payhalf plaid shirt, gifted Style & Co skinny rolled cuff jeans from my Momma, & Vero Cuoio oxblood boots via TJ Max.

Until then,
 Have a Fabulous Weekend

TBT w/ Butterick 5147

Happy Thump Day Everyone !!...  Woke up to 45 degree weather... loooooooooove it, even with it being overcast & rainy ... at least there is no Snow... yeah.


Ok on to TBT w/ Butterick 5147... this dress is another fav & TNT, which was made during a sew-a-along hosted by Elizabeth.




 The dress has definitely been a workhorse over the years.   I guess it's due to the medium double knit factor.  Has that gawd-loving stretch, no pilling, washes, air dry like a dream & most importantly, no ironing required.

 Now - 2015

This pattern has been worked up at least half a dozen times, that I purchased another pattern,  With that I will be working up a few more for spring/summer.


Being a true urban-gal working in the corporate arena, I'm always adding a lil twist to my classic garments by popping it with urban flair.  Haha...

 


Until then, Have a Great Day.

Then & Now: Butterick 4976

The weather is finally warming up, yeah like above the teens and more importantly no Snow!!!.  Yes, I love winter, but the numerous snow storms this year..... was too much.

With the morning temps starting out in the hi 20s  and warming up to low 40s, had me reaching for one of my all time favorite TNT dress...  Butterick 4976.





Mar. 2011       -                       Mar. 2015

This dress needed a lil TLC, a portion of the serged waist seam had unraveled and thankfully I noticed the opening while ironing.  To the serger it went and serge the whole waist seam removing about 1/4".  With that done ... all was right again.

Paired this soft & snugly dress with a black Loft vest, skinny belt & black suede wedge pumps.


Until then, Have a Great Week.
