Happy Wednesday Ladies! Have you all been having a terrific Summer? I don't know about your Girls, but around here the heat is CRAZY! Just this week alone has been in the late 90's early 100's. Never the less, I am trying to enjoy it. I always miss the warmth when Winter rolls around.

The jumper I am wearing was made by me :-) Although I am a little embarrassed to say that- you can probably tell it is really badly sewn. Like I always say, sometimes they turn out, sometimes they don't. It must go along with not using a pattern. I need to train myself to be better about using them. I just never seem to do well when I use one. 




I picked this blouse up at Forever 21 and have been dying to share it on here. I am a big sucker for cute novelty prints- haha.






Jumper: Handmade
Blouse: Forever 21

Oh my goodness, your style keeps getting cuter and cuter! I'm so impressed that you made this dress without a pattern- every time I sew I use one, and I'm a bit afraid to go outside of my comfort zone and try making clothes without one! I love the color and the cut, and it looks like it fits you very well :)

Xo, Hannah


Alexandra Marie said...

Thank you so much, Hannah! I can totally understand- it is pretty scary to make something without a pattern, especially if you are using more expensive materials. So far I've only sewn pattern"less" with fabric I've found around the home- haha.

You're a vintage dream! I love that rich red dress and how you layered a blouse underneath. Plus, a floppy hat to top things off? Perfect :)

Hey Alexandra,
Because of you I tried some Hubert's lemonade and
guess what...it's everything you said it was!
It's the best I've ever had and our Hyvee now sells
it I'm definitely going to be getting more!
Thanks for that!

I love prints with hot air balloons! I've been seeing lots of fun novelty prints coming from Forever 21 lately. I haven't been there in months, which is sort of odd for me but I've been meaning to take a mall trip soon! By the way...I think your jumper looks great! I love the color and I love how jumpers look layered over collared shirts. :)

Unknown said...

No way! That shirt has been sitting in my F21 shopping cart forever--I just need to buy it! And I always imagined styling it like that--love it!

You look so radiant in these photos, Alex!
I remember reading somewhere about your new blouse from Forever21 with the hot air balloons on it, and when I visited Forever21 the other day, I saw it and thought of you!
I love the way you've styled it here :)
Beautiful, as always!
