My Wish List.....

I read this great book called "How to Become a Budget Fashionista" by Kathryn Finney. For those of you who have not discovered this book, you are really missing out!! It may be small in in stature but it packs a mighty punch. Not only does she give you a great foundation to start with, she also gives great resources, recipes and sources. Now, I have decided to make an effort to really watch my pennies and this has trickled down to my shopping habits. So without further ado, here's my list...

  • black suit
  • white cotton dress shirt
  • plain black pumps
  • pair of jeans
  • black dress
  • t-shirts, fitted
  • leather tote bag
  • pair of sneakers
  • trench coat or all-weather coat
  • khaki or chino pants

I am a thrift storeaholic and so far with the right timing, I have been able to find....

two cotton white shirts

a pair of plain black pumps

I already have...

a leather tote bag

trench coat

a pair of khaki pants

Would like to add eventually..

dark denim jeans

a twin set

long black boots

a pair of strappy heels

Wish me luck!!!!

Is There Such a Thing as Too Many???

Yes, I have a problem and cannot control myself. Made two more purses that I may not carry again. One was made using Simplicity sewing patterns for Dummies # 4670, view c

The other was made using another Simplicity pattern, NewLook 6574

It's been awhile.....

It's been awhile since my last post but I realized that I had to get back into it. I have made a few things so they will posted shortly and there are a few WIPs. Later.....
