The Struggle Continues

WHAT I WORE: tip to toe!

There were so many great photos from this shoot in DC's Brookland neighborhood that I had to do another post. To learn more about this amazing mural check out my "Brookland's Finest" post from earlier this week!

Brookland's Finest

WHAT I WORE: tip to toe!

Over the weekend I had brunch in the Brookland neighborhood of DC with a fellow blogger; we went to Steel Plate which served up some mighty fine huevos rancheros and some epic cocktails (order the Kir Royale!) with a side of the grooviest playlist.

After stuffing our faces (and dancing in our booth) we wandered around looking for an interesting place for our photo shoot. I'd say this brightly colored wall was the perfect choice...read more about the meaning behind the mural "A Survivor's Journey"

clutch*- Sip and Sew DC


Well here's a first... today's outfit includes a piece I made myself! See that clutch* I'm holding? That, my friends, is the result of a recent afternoon spent sipping wine and learning to sew at the Anacostia Arts Center.
 
Who would have thought that someone who has never touched a sewing machine could complete a project like this in only a few hours! Clearly I'm ready for Project Runway!

Sip and Sew DC is taught by Cecily S. Habimana (Simply Cecily) and Tisha Thorne (Tisha Sewing Studio) and is a laid back way to learn basic sewing techniques, hang out with your pals and create a piece of fashion with your own hands! Previous classes have created pants, skirts and sundresses; all materials are provided (sewing machines, fabric, patterns, etc.) as well as a little liquid courage.
