TIE DYE LIFE

October 6, 2014

Tie Dye Cardigan| Dyed and Sewn by Me       Romper | T.J. Maxx    Sandals | River Island     Necklace| Thrift Store

The last picture is a result of many attempts to get a 'glamorous in the air shot,' luckly my face isn't showing, haha! 
EXAMS EXAMS EXAMS, this week I only have one exam then two the following week. I can't believe I am six weeks into the semester, where is time going (serious question). This is crunch time for me which means more time to procrastinate because I am overwhelmed but at the same time, be productive  because I am under pressure..can anyone relate?
I made this tie dye kimono about two weeks ago, my first of many. I seriously love the comfort of this thing. I am going to add some fringe to the next ones I make. AHH, I JUST LOVE TIE DYE!
In an effect to improve on my sewing skills, I will be doing more projects (YAY) I hope to share a few on here as I haven't done a tutorial in a while.  Hope everyone has a wonderful week ahead, stay positive and all will be well!

KNOW THY SELF. BE TRUE TO THYSELF

G-R-O-O-V-Y

Romper | T.J. Maxx      Belt | H&M      Cutout Shoes | Missguided

I feel so GROOVY in this romper, like a 'groovy butterfly'! I am going through a romper phase guys bare with me. I am digging the idea of not having to put together a top/bottom type of outfit...rompers it is. This one in particular speaks many levels to me! From the pleating on the sleeves to the print, everything just comes together quite well. I made a tie dye cardigan/duster/kimono, LOL! Not sure what the proper name would be since now and days any long cardigan is considered a kimono. I will be doing a blog post on how I styled it...so stay tuned
Next week is going to be so busy for me, I have my first exam for the semester, and have another two the following week. My friend and I started a fashion type club on campus and our first meeting is next week as well, can't wait for that!! On top of that, I am preparing a Fall/Winter collection for Fancy Muffin. Obviously lots to do but I kind of like that, it keeps me busy! 
Hope everyone has a GROVVY week a head! xx

 

Freedom Lies Within You

September 23, 2014

Floral Kimono & Lace Romper | Urban Outfitters    Block Sandals | River Island 

New Blog Layout! OH YEAHH! After dabbling into coding and HTML settings for my website, I felt encouraged to purchase a blog layout that entails a bit of HTML. I am so proud of myself for installing it on my own, haha but don't call me a computer science major just yet, I'll leave that field for my brother.I am going to play around a little more with HTML, the possibilities are endless (when you know what you are doing)
I purchased this lovely waterfall cardigan/kimono from Urban Outfitters. It was a treat to myself as I usually don't usually purchase full price items at Urban Outfitters because the college struggle is real but this beauty was an exception and I knew I would get much wear from it. The lace romper was on sale for alittle over $20. I love the cut of the romper with the lace trimming and to top it off, its a halter style romper...ME LIKE! This is the first outfit in a long while where nothing I am wearing is from the thrift store..so rear
Fall season is here guys! Who is as excited as me! I live for Fall/ Winter fashion! I already have a long 'WISH LIST' of items I am craving this season. In other news, Im back in school, this is my last year before I graduate from college (yikes) Time Flies! 
 Hope all is well with everyone, what is new with you guys?

Fancy Muffin takes on AFRO PUNK festival

September 5, 2014




YRU Rainbow flatforms | Ebay

My brother made this muffin! Turned out so FANCYYYY! 

Afro Punk has come and gone *sigh* I have talked about this festival so much and looked forward to it, I can not believe it is over. Afro Punk was AMAZING, for even more pictures, visit the Fancy Muffin Facebook page. I got a chance to be a vendor at the festival in Brooklyn, it takes place once a year. I sold handmade items that I make from my brand Fancy Muffin!! To me, Afro Punk is a celebration of life and diversity. I took so many pictures at my booth, the awesomeness didn't stop there. There were so many stylish and self expressive people there, the atmosphere was so inspirational. I didn't manage to snap any street styles because I was mending my booth but take a look at snaps taken from Afro Punk contributors HERE
My friend Brittany, made my two outfits! I know her skills are so TIGHT!! I received so many sweet comments from my outfits. For day 1 I wore a tie dye dress, I tie dyed some fabric and had Brittany sew together a dress. Day 2 I wore the two piece Kente set. I scored the rainbow YRU shoes on Ebay for literally half the price of what they usually go for ^_^  YASSSSSS, I love a good Ebay Deal. I paired it with the tie dye dress and it match perfectly.
I was featured on the ESSENCE website and I also was featured on Cool Hunting, so thankful for that. Keep your passion alive guys, whatever it may be, use it to make the world a better place.

Let's talk customers! How AWESOME are the customer pictures! I was so humbled to meet people that followed my site and were looking forward to seeing it at the festival and those that simply stopped by to give me some encouraging words. YOU ALL ROCK and contribute to my inspiration. I am working on some NEW stuff now as FALL approaches, can't wait to share it with you all. I started school this week and I am really going to try to post more often.
