Shoe Find

Joia Pulse Lime Green Wedges
Pulse Suede Wedges

Whenever I rock these wedges, they get a whole lot of love from you all, my lovely readers.  A couple of you ladies have even asked where I got them so that you can snag a pair too.  However, much to my dismay, they were sold out on the website I bought them from.  But, because I love you all so much I have been diligently searching for another place that has them in stock (or at least has a good alternative to these lovelies).  

Guess what? You'll never believe what I came across while browsing this web store, Tobi, I just discovered.  They have them in stock! In addition to the color above, they also carry them in hot pink, blue, and black.  I was so excited that I had to share it with you all in a post. So hurry and get them here while you can. ;)  

FYI- They fit a little small so I would recommend going 1/2 a size up for more comfort.  Also, if you live in LA, particularly in the San Fernando Valley, you can buy them at the Northridge Mall. ;)

P.S. If you ge them, I'm dying to see how you rock them. So do share. ;)

Sew Stylings Sundays Poll

To Modify or Not to Modify?

That is the question I ask myself when I buy something I like that is not quite what I was expecting. For this week's Sew Stylings Poll, I want your thoughts on my decision to modify this dress into a skirt instead. I tried it out as a skirt and loved it! However, I would love to hear your thoughts on which you prefer.

To Modify or Not to Modify? Skirt vs. Dress
Want to hear how I got into this little dilemma in the first place and see more pics?

Sew Stylings Sundays Poll

Peplumed... with a Twist 

The peplum trend is really, really hot right now! And though I know it's just a trend, I just can't get enough of it. I find myself looking for different articles of clothing to peplum in different peplum styles.

So in my search for unique peplums, I have come across these three varieties that I really like.  Which of these creative peplums do you like the best? I need your help deciding which direction to take my next peplum project.

Take the poll below and let me know. ;)

Peplum Poll: Which peplum style do you like best? Vote below! Comment to elaborate! ;)  Previous SSS Poll Results
Option #2: White Bottoms

Thanks for voting in the previous Sew Stylings Sundays Poll.  The majority of you picked the white bottoms look over the church time or the original look. I must say as much as I like the other options, I totally agree with you all.  This option is my fav too. ;)

Red Peplum Short Sleeve Shirt

Make #17

I have really been into the peplum trend lately.  There's one type of clothing that I really like to see peplumed.  Can you guess which type? Hint: Make #16 should be a clue. :)
