Green With Envy

Evening every one hope you guys had a wonderful weekend. My weekend was filled with lots of tea and cold medicine but I did go out for a short time and spent time with my wonderful mother.

Saturday I went with my mom to the Nate Holden Performing Arts Center in Los Angeles to volunteer and check it out. It was a gorgeous theater and my first time in a dressing room I wish I could share pictures but I don't think they were allowed during the tour but it was nice and I got to show off the dress I made, I named her Juniper. After we toured the theater my mother and I dropped by Road Runner to pick up her bib for the Allstate half marathon she was going to run Sunday.

She's really been enjoying her runs and I'm just so proud of her and what she's accomplished. After we picked up her bib we had a late lunch at Cafe Mimi's. It was our first time dining there the atmosphere was great and the food was delicious. I had Sweet and Sour chicken and for dessert I had an Apple crumble toped with vanilla ice cream.

This week has been ultra cold, I am just not used to this cold but that didn't stop me from dressing nice and the theme of the past couple of days has been green and blue but mostly green hence the post name. :]


This was my outfit for today.
Cardigan: Christmas Present
Top: Forever 21
Skirt: Thrifted
Bag: H&M
Shoes: H&M
Bracelet: H&M
And now I would like to present one of the dresses I created named Juniper.

Juniper was made with a soft flannel I purchased at Joanns, I at first was apprehensive because I imagine flannel not something you want to make a dress with but it was actually lovely to work with. It has a nice flow to it and is very soft and warm when worn.
This is me modeling Juniper and the crinoline underneath gave it that nice fullness and bounce I wanted. I'm very proud of Juniper and hope you guys like her as much as I do. :] Have a great rest of the week everyone.
