Home Decor Inspiration // Plants + Serenity

In a few weeks, I’m going to adventure solo to this supposedly beautiful beach town by Puerto Vallarta called Sayulita. I can buy a round trip ticket to take a bus there on a Saturday morning and arrive back on a Monday. I’ve heard I can stay in bunks for as cheap as $15USD, which is amazing. The reason I want to go is because I keep … Continue reading Home Decor Inspiration // Plants + Serenity

A Reflection of Yourself

One habit that always makes my day is seeing the beauty in each human’s personal style and appreciating the way that we express ourselves through our clothing.  I love a style that sticks out like a sore thumb, and proudly. Not because this person looks completely different from the rest, because in reality they’re not completely different. We are all the same. I love that … Continue reading A Reflection of Yourself

Crowding Myself in Inspiration

It’s Sunday afternoon *scheduling this ahead- ooo now you know my secret* and I’m alone in my mom’s living room with Tylerdude at my feet, doing what I love best but don’t do a lot of: chillin’ on the couch. I’m drinking a hot Roasted Dandelion Root tea with cocoa sprinkled in it that my neighbor pal Lindy recommended. She’s the one that gave me … Continue reading Crowding Myself in Inspiration

Friday Favorites Round Up

Nelson Mandela. July 18, 1918 – December 5, 2013 Unlinked photo off Pinterest. Does anyone know the designer or photographer? I love this silhouette.   The colors in this room are great! They’re not too overwhelming. I really like the zig zag blanket… I’d make some bags with it if I could get my mittens on it… Simple & greatly comfortable looking outfit. Those shoes … Continue reading Friday Favorites Round Up

Style Inspiration || Color Me Nana, Bowie, Lace, Family Affairs, & the 60’s

I don’t just love bags. I love fashion. Fashion of the past, current, futuristic, unpredicted, and all of the rest turns my brain & inspires resting ideas to shine. I often think about creating & designing clothes. I really should invest in a mannequin. Style is a form of self-expression. A form of art – especially the whole styling process to an outfit. What will one … Continue reading Style Inspiration || Color Me Nana, Bowie, Lace, Family Affairs, & the 60’s

Inspiration for the new studio.

We have the keys to our new apartment in Guadalajara! I’m really excited about my new city & I’m looking forward to getting to know it. I’m also really looking forward to setting up my new studio space. Lately I’ve been sewing on a pretty small desk & moving my machine to the floor each time I want to cut fabric or package sold orders. It’s down right … Continue reading Inspiration for the new studio.
