Striped Dress






Dress: self made  |  Shoes : Nine West  |  Belt:  F21 |  Baubles: Swarovski necklace, Apricot Lane, F21, and DIY

Seeing the new Emerson Fry collection inspired me to pull out my sewing machine and get creative.  You can never go wrong with stripes, and the fabric is light and airy - perfect for hot summer days.  

p.s. hope you didn't get fooled yesterday.  alaa tricked me pretty good by coming into the house screaming ( he was mowing the lawn).  i ran thinking that he cut his hand and would have to rush him to the hospital.  thankfully, it was just an april fools prank , but he seriously made my heart stop.  
yes, i am 100% gullible and yes i do love him like crazy.

Just a quick post today.  Hope you had a lovely weekend

  2. Pretty dress! I love that crystal on the bracelet. Omg. I would have flipped if I were you (the April Fools joke). That's funny though.

  16. Can't believe you made the dress -- you should be a designer and sell your clothes! So wish I had that skill. You look gorgeous, as always!
