Señorita Dress


Happy Cinco de Mayo everyone!! Today I'll be sharing a special dress I made last year for my shop.
It was inspired by my Mexican roots and an often worn accessory the sarape. This is by far my favorite design! I instantly fell in love with the fabric from the moment I laid eyes on it. The fabric was so festive and bright it made me feel happy inside.

When designing the Señorita dress I wanted to do a lot of fabric manipulation. For the Bodice I played with directional lines, creating a chevron effect. I think matching the lines right was crucial otherwise it would have looked so wrong. When cutting out the pieces I had to cut one piece first and do line matching making sure they would be mirrored. It was time consuming but well worth taking my time. The bodice was fully lined with a light blue lining.
I knew I wanted a showstopper for the back, I went for a back cut out. As you can tell by now I love having fun back details on my designs. For the back I had mirrored vertical lines with two cute wooden buttons. The wooden buttons added a great touch to the back of the dress.

 For the skirt, I decided to have the lines go horizontal so that they would stand out once it was pleated. I did a blind hem to keep the stiches hidden and added an invisible zipper. I really loved the way this little dress came out.

I had lovely Julia model the Señorita dress. She looked so gorgeous in my dress. Seeing the complete look on her was an amazing feeling. Here are some pictures of her modeling the dress!! Hope you loved this design as much as I do.

Hello darlings, today I have a beauty product review from Keep Me Safe Organics!

The company carries organic, toxic free beauty and skincare products. I believe that taking care of your face is important since it is the first thing everyone sees so make it a lasting impression. I'll be reviewing their skincare line, which are the facial cleanser, facial toner, facial moisturizer, serum, and rejuvenating glacier mud mask. (Disclosure, all products provided by Keep Me Safe OrganicsAll my opinions are mine and I'm keeping it 100%.)
In order to give you my honest opinion, I tested the products for three days and made a video documenting my results after using all the products. I will post the video below. Let's talk about my skin issues before using the products; I suffered from dry flaky skin, red blotchy patches on my cheeks and of course acne. I'll be reviewing each item and tell you a bit more about them.

Women's Watches: Where to Shop for Unique Timepieces

Tick tock, tick tock. Time is slowly creeping up and I'm making sure to make the most out of it. As a mommy of two, I stop and stare at my two beautiful daughters I began to reminisce on the day they were both born. Oh such tiny little babies they were and all I can think is poof they've grown in a blink of an eye. I am soaking up every moment and making memories with them because I want them to always remember all the good TIMES we've experienced.
