My Latest DIY Threads

I have fallen in love with my Sewing Machine and I swear everything I see a nice outfit I think “I could make that!” And recently I have started to make a few items for myself, with my first creation being a multi-colored skirt for an event in Richmond, VA…

I made this skirt without a pattern and it was definitely a learning experience. I used about a yard and a half of fabric and made the skirt straight with an elastic waist band.

I thought the skirt was cute and I got numerous compliments, but I quickly learned (sadly at the event) that a straight skirt with no slits or asymmetry was hard to walk in. So onto my next project, I decided to make an asymmetric skirt. Unfortunately though, I didnt have enough fabric to achieve that look, so I went with side slits… 
This skirt was a lot easier to walk in and very comfortable! Of course I was excited for my next project and with an event coming up in DC I decided to create an asymmetric dress. 
I made this dress the day of the event and added black lace into the slits for a “dramatic” look and a wider flare. Again, I didn’t use a pattern and it was a learning experience with pinning because at first I had it pinned without the lace showing, smh. But after I figured out my error with quickly became my favorite creation! 
Next up, working with my Sister and her clothing line, Cutwork, we came up with a few Bandeau designs. This was one that I created… 
Although it ended up being a little too small I am working on perfecting these bad boys because they’re super easy to create and would look great in the Fall with a high-waisted skirt & blazer! 

New Timepiece!

It’s been awhile since I bought a new watch and I’ve been thinking about getting one for a long time. When I spotted this Rose Gold timepiece in Macy’s the other night, I had to have it! 

I love the roman numerals and the see-through face! 
Have you purchased a new timepiece recently? Or what watch have you been eyeing?

argyle couple.

I swear this wasn’t initial, but TB and I both wore brown argyle to work…

I was the lighter shade…
And TB held it down for the dark side…
I thought it was really cute how we complimented each other! 
Just another day in the life of #TBnJojo, LOL! 

xmas gifts!

Oh the joy of opening gifts on Christmas! I had an amazing Christmas this year and I couldn’t have asked for more! Here are a few things I got and some other gifts that were opened…

The first gift that I opened on Christmas Day was my new camera! I absolutely LOVE this camera and it is just what I’ve been asking for! As you can see, the picture quality is stunning!

TB also got me a BEAUTIFUL Pink Diamond Key Necklace. I can’t wait to wear it on our next Date Night! 
I had been hinting at a Michael Kors watch & my Mom surprised me and got it! You can see more pictures in the Michael Kors post [HERE] and as you see, I’ve already added it to the collection…
And I cannot wait to wear this Wine Rose clutch!
I also got a lot of perfume, which was great because I’m practically running on fumes of my current stash. I even got the Issey Miyake that I was raving about a few months ago [HERE]. 

Also, some “Candy” by Prada….
And I can’t forget the Flower Bomb… but I’ve been wearing this since I came from London. Early xmas gift, lol! 
We also watched my Mom, Dad, and Sister open gifts…

And last but not least, my xmas tradition. For xmas, I always [this being the 2nd year, lol] get TB some Louis Vuitton. So, this year, I got him a Black & Grey Damier Scarf; and he loved it!
