…Welcome Back

Main pic Happy New Year ya’ll!

…DIY Polka Dots Peplum Top

ChiChi Loves | DIY Peplum Top Vogue 8815I had a birthday outing to attend this past Saturday and like plenty of ladies, I didn’t have anything to wear. So instead of searching for something or even making a quick dash to the mall, I decided to create something to wear.  This wouldn’t have been a bad idea if I had a lot of time on my hands. But I literally had only 2 hours to complete a look. Can you say ‘marathon sewing’? (more…)
