-Striped tank dress
Ever since I added this picture of Kim Kardashian in a striped tank dress to my Style Look Book,
I've been wanting a cute striped tank dress. I picked up these 2 knits at Hancock fabrics & this pattern. I just have to get some solid knit to serve as a binding for the armhole and neckline. We'll see what happens.
I just read HERE that the September Vogue will have almost 600 ad pages in it! If you're looking for some fashion inspiration well you'll definitely find within all of those pages. I can't wait to get my copy:)
Most everything I've been sewing lately has needed elastic. I definitely need to buy elastic in bulk especially since those $1.5 packages are adding up. I"ll look into that! I'll check out Atlanta Thread Supply. Anyone have any good suggestions?
I ran across the cutest shoes drastically marked down to $9 each.
(I'm happy I picked up a blue and yellow pair. I LOVE this style of shoe and have a tan and pink pair similar to these. I wish I could've bought them for these prices though.)

-McCall Fall Patterns
I'm not usually happy about planning my fashions for the fall because the thought of Summer coming to an end is a sad one. However looking at the new McCall fall patterns has gotten me excited about cool weather sewing.
I saw these knit leggings the other day that were printed to look like jeans. How hilarious!
-Fabric I won!
I was delighted to get fabric that I won from Sheila's contest. There's a picture of it HERE. Thanks Sheila! I look forward to putting this to good use:)
I'm completely addicted to this brand of Kettlecorn. I used to eat kc but stopped a few years back. I stumbled on this brand and am hooked. Yes, here's a now empty bag I purchased less than 18 hours ago. This stuff never sticks around. It's SO good! I eat so much of it that my lips swell a little from all of the salt. I may need some therapy for this addiction. LOL!
I'm completely obsessed with Bravo's Million Dollar Decorator's reality show. Have you seen it? It's awesome. Being a small business owner, I'm captivated by these other business owners who use the Interior Decorating skills to work on multi million dollar projects. Each designer has their own personality, style, and astetic. Plus I love to see how they interact with their clients which range from easy to please to raging lunatics. I'd love to one day work on Million dollar projects one day! A girl can dream, huh?
Well that's all for now. Happy Sewing!
