Hey friends! It’s been a VERY long time since my last post and I apologize profusely for the delay. I’ve been hard at work on a brand new site that will be launching in about two weeks! Eeeeeeee!!!! I couldn’t be more excited to share it with you. It’s been many months in the making and it’s almost ready to reveal.
There’s going to be a lot of what you’ve seen on NDAD since 2009, however there’s going to be lots of new stuff too. It’s a new year and time for a bit of a refresh, you know?
I’ll share more about everything as we get closer…lots of amazing little treats are in store for you in less than a month. Wooooooooo!!
Today’s remake is one of my most FAVORITE pieces I’ve worked on in a while. It involves metallics… *mic drop.
Check this lovely out…
A neighbor of mine has an incredible vintage collection and has been having sales to downsize her racks of goodies. I hopped on this dress as soon as I tried it on.
It was $10, so the beaded neck, heavy brocade, and metallic threads came home with me.
So did those robot moves which shockingly must have come with the dress!!
I had a segment on GMA to plan for and I thought this piece would be the perfect on-camera look! There was a LOT of work to be done, however…
Sooooooo, I’m in NYC for a segment on Good Morning America today to craft a seasonal DIY project!
Anyone else suffer from ALWAYS BEING COLD like I do? ❄️😳❄️
I’ll show you the easiest hack and you’ll be a master hand-warmer-maker in less than a minute using things you already have!✋🔥
Tune in during the 8am hour and check it out for yourself! Plus I’ll be wearing something that I just finished making which will make its way to the blog shortly.
Hey friends! I’m writing this from the Delta terminal at LAX getting ready to head to NY for something super exciting.
…how meta is this
Anyway, my quick trip to the East Coast just might have me watchable on your television at some point between 7-9am Wednesday morning, on a channel run by a mouse. 🐭 I get the official “ok to share” later today and will send out a blog blast.
But, I found this fabulous dress at a neighbor’s estate sale and I just couldn’t resist! She sold it to me for $10 and I happily accepted the offer. (Also, it might look super fun on camera so you guys get the sneak peek!)
The gown is super thick with a gorgeous rhinestoned neck which, to be honest, was nailing it on the choking factor. Breathing was a tad bit difficult when the piece was completely zipped up.
But the colors and textured design had me immediately wanting to make this my own.
I brought the thread and needle with me, so there’s probably going to be some sewing going on. And being that I’m stuck in the middle of the row, I hope my aisle and window neighbors don’t mind a sleeve or two flopping about.
Hello friends! I’ve got another remake for you today Apologies for the delays – a bigger post is to come to discuss, but thanks for all your emails and patience! There’s a brand new site coming your way as well, with a fun little project to boot, all which will be shared shortly!
LA can be 80 degrees one day and 62 another – this dress was worn on one of those warm wintery days here! ❄️☀️
I just loved this striped mix of colors!
It was a bit too big…
…but those pleats made me SO happy!
I knew there was room to make this outfit work!
I’ve been on a workout kick for the past four months – I signed up for Classpass (anyone else a member??) and have been taking all kinds of classes from spin and yoga to TWERKING!! Seriously, there’s a class for that (I went with a girlfriend of mine and it was a blast) and I am now ready to take Miley Cyrus on
I needed some new workout gear, so I went to a Beyond Yoga sample sale to see what I could snag. I grabbed a pair of leggings for $20 then hit the “damaged” area where each item was $2. HELLO GOLDMINE! I love to score pieces from here, because they’re usually mildly damaged – nothing that a little elbow grease can’t tweak.
Score #1, a fab pair of capris.
One small issue…there’s a HOLE on the front and back leg!
Now that’s not something that a little stitching can fix…
But when a set of pants retail for around $90 (yes, seriously), I go into “make it work” mode to really make them work.
I mean I guess I could get away with going like this…
You know, it would be a new fashion statement! OK, wanna see what I did?
