Mini Haul

Hey guys! So I went on a little shopping trip to forever 21 with my momma because they where having a sale which I think is still going on online and in stores at the moment. I also did a little bit of online shopping as well. We had so much of fun! We don't go out shopping much since I prefer to shop online, but we decided it would be better to just go in person and try things on. I love seeing my mom get excited when she's finds cute things for her self!

Here's what I wore!
Top - H&M / Skirt - Vintage / Shoes - H&M / Fringe Backpack - Forever 21 /
Necklaces - H&M and Forever 21
Phone case - H&M 

Here's is what bought! I tried not to go too crazy so I stuck to things I really needed. I don't have a lot of basics in my closet, since a lot of my stuff is Thrifted or handmade most of my pieces are pretty loud or require a lot of effort to come up with outfits, so I was looking for pieces that were easy to pair with simple skirts or shorts for when I just want to be lazy and comfy but still look cute!

This jacket omg! It's was one of the first pieces I picked up its everything I've been looking for in a biker jacket lately! I really wanted a big kinda oversized faux leather jacket for a while now and I'm so happy I found this one I got it in a size 2X but I kind of wish they had it in a 3X because I just wanted it to fit really oversized! But the 2x is a good and still pretty oversized (Phew that's a lot of "oversized" lol) it needs side pockets though. The best part is that it only cost me $30 that's crazy and quality is so good:)  

Then I picked up these two basic sleeveless tops for summer because it's way too hot here, I feel like Vegas just likes to skip spring and go right to summer!

Here's what I purchased online. I came across this lash company on Instagram and their lashes are too pretty I had to try a pair I'm super happy with them and they're great quality and they have amazing costumer service! They replied to all my questions super quick and were nice enough to give me a free shipping coupon code for my next purchase! These babies were only $3.99! Then I got this awesome rose gold septum ring for my nose and since I was getting pretty bored of my old one I just wanted to try something new! Can't wait to wear it!

I hope you guys enjoy these kind of post let me know if you would like to see more, I know I love see peoples hauls! Also let me know if you would like to see how I style these pieces:)

Ps. sorry for the bad quality photos I took these with my phone real quick hehe

Spring Bells

Hey guys! How have you been? I've been getting quite excited for spring, although I'm dreading the the hot desert weather! I'm more of a cold weather person. I must say i'm a little sick of wearing winter clothing, don't get me wrong I love winter clothing! But sometimes its just easier to throw on a cute spring dress and go about your day. I'm really happy about this Modcloth dress it was my first spring wardrobe purchase of the year and I'm absolutely in love with the bell sleeves and the cute touch of lace! I think I have a new obsession with bell sleeves next one on the wish list is the Khloe Dress from Chubby CartWheels.

Altering a Pleated skirt Tutorial

Hey guys! So I'm always getting questions about where I get my pleated skirts and of course I get them from my local thrift shops! But I know how hard it is to find tennis skirts or school girl skirts in plus size, especially with shorter hems! So I wanted to make this tutorial to show you guys what I do to get the perfect pleated skirt for super cheap!
Ok! so first I go to my local thrift shops go through their skirt section and look for pleated maxi skirts (In my experience it's a lot easier to find pleated maxi skirts in plus size) I found This one for $5 in a size 18! 

Here's what you'll need
1. A maxi skirt
2. Scissors 
3. Chalk
4. Thread
5. Iron
6. Sewing Machine

 Step 1. Find your favorite length skirt in your closet place it on top of your maxi skirt lining up both waistbands together.

Step 2. Make a mark on the maxi skirt where your favorite skirt ends with chalk.

Now that you made your mark, you want to make another mark about 1.5" inches under your first mark.

Step 3. Now you spread out the pleats making sure everything is flat.

Once everything is flat your going to measure from your second mark down to the hem of the skirt, my measurement was 11.5" inches (This measurement will be different with every maxi skirt). Now your going to mark a dotted line all across the front of your skirt with the measurement you got.

Once your done with your dotted line connect the lines together.

Step 4. Now that you got your line done. make sure your front and back pleats are flattened out again. Also you want to make sure the bottom front and back hem are lined up together perfectly, this is important because when you start cutting this will make sure you cut a straight line underneath as well 

Start cutting making sure everything is lined up and flat as you go!

when you're done cutting it should look something like this! at this point you want to try it on to determine how big you want your hem to be before you sew it. 

Step 5. Once you determine how big you want your hem flip your skirt inside out and get your iron ready to press it in. I was originally planning for my hem to be 1" inch wide but the skirt would've been a little too short for me, so I decided on doing a half an inch instead. fold it once all around and press it in with your iron.

Now fold it over one more time, press it in with the iron, and pin in place all around.

Here's a tip: When your pinning your hem and your skirt has a plaid pattern make sure you match up the lines and pin in place (like the photo below), this makes sure when your done sewing, your pleats will lay flat and not flare out!

All pinned and ready to sew! 

Step 6. Now sew your hem in place!

Here's what my skirt looked like when I was done sewing the hem in place. A little wiggly and flared out right? 

Now Just iron your pleats down and your all DONE!! YAY!

I Love it!

Hope this tutorial was helpful and understandable! If you have any questions at all don't be afraid to ask me in the comments!!
