found a little bit of time in between sewing + running to the post office to squeeze a couple or garments for the challenge in. it is not even finished but i just wanted to give u guys a taste. ;)
DAY 4: denice tee
it is a very basic tee…
it has a back cutout. yummy.
i must admit, it was hard leaving this tee simple..but the denise tee is a great tee to have cuz it is so basic, you can dress up, down, + accessorize how you wish. here is how i chose to style it:
shoes: jeffrey campbell
arm sleeves: naKIMuli
brooch: thrift (vintage)
jewelry: thrift (vintage) and gifts
omg! my whole outfit is made by me! lol didn’t even notice that…
i made the denim arm sleeves back in 2003 + just happened to look in my closet just now + thought, maybe i should upt them on…
with that being said, who would have thought that as soon as i said i am going to do a 30 day challenge, that i would get swamped with orders! been tryna figure out what the universe is tryna tell me…think i know. but i am working on cute pieces in between my orders. can’t wait to debut them. though i am behind on the 30 day challenge, i refuse to give up! so it may take me longer that 30 days but i am commited to doing it. but i do want to thank the creator again for supporting my dream. and to u, my customers/readers/fans. thank u for all the luv!
luv begets luv!
i owe u guys A LOT of days. lol but i promise i will catch up this week. it’s just that as soon as i announced this challenge, i have been getting a lot of orders. but i am very grateful to the universe for it. and for you guys for supporting me. but anyway, here is the next garment.
DAY 3: huggable sling tunic
this top is kinda old. well…not that old. i started it around the beginning of the summer but i never finished it until this past week. it is a very casual top that goes well with leggings. and as u can see, it keeps up with the draping theme.
side + back views
u can even where the belt in the front as well.
was yesterday. argh!!!
sorry folks for not posting anything. it has been crazy over here with orders, meeting with clients, and running errands. and i usually like to take the pics in the a.m. while the sun is out but that may not always work out. i see this 30 day challenge is really gonna be a challenge! but i digress…
DAY 2: cut throat cocoon
i was actually gonna make a regular cocoon jacket but, as always, the universe steps in + takes me on another journey, which is always fine with me! it’s a little different becuz there are drape slits that make it perfect to wear a cute belt with.
i was telling uncle jimmy about the cocoon over the phone. he suggested that i call it “cut throat cocoon.” :)
wear with or without a belt.
would luv to hear feedback…
i have decided to challenge myself a little. for the next 30 days i am gonna make at least 1 new garment for my new clothing label, shanae. i’m calling it:
the 30 DAY CREATE SHANAE CHALLENGE. (that rhymes! lol)
so i started today. and i will go until november 12th. (disclaimer: that is actually 31 days, but tomorrow i will be out all day visiting one of my bffs; she was in a car accident. but no worries, she is ok even though her car is totalled.) it is gonna be quite challenging cuz i have to fit into a busy schedule of fulfilling orders, styling clients, going to the gym, dance rehearsals, the list goes on. but i am DETERMINED to do this.
DAY 1: twisted pencil skirt
had a dream about this skirt on saturday nite. and when i usually have dreams about designs, i try to hurry up + make them before the inspiration dies.
you can even turn the drape to the side…
feel free to let me know what u think…
