Who Did I See?

So I am sure you know by now that I hit up my first fashion week and let’s be honest, I have no shame… I did have a few celebrity sightings and celebrity chasings… I may or may not have run after Rachel Zoe, I may or may not have interrupted Austin Scarlett’s conversation, and I may or may not have yelled “HEY! Stanley Tucci!” at Stanley Tucci. That being said, I do not regret a moment of the excitement. I do however, regret not having the guts to ask Nina Garcia for a picture. She was so tiny and well put together and beautiful that my legs immediately started to shake and I wimped out… Hoping there will be a chance in the future… anyways, want to see a couple pictures?

Open Markets are Awesome

I had the pleasure of hitting up one of the best open markets in my area, the SOWA Open Market in South Boston, which has an amazing selection of farmer’s market items, food trucks, antiques, handmade goodies and some randomy fashion stuff (YAY!). We had a great time, besides how friggin’ hot it was. If any of you have the chance to buy from markets, I highly recommend it. There is such a great sense of community as well as such a great selection of super fun stuff. Some of my favorites goods are below. (Pssst. I tried not to make this too image heavy)

Celebrating a Year (Oh and Giveaway!)

Soooooooo today is my blog’s one year anniversary! HIP HIP HOORAY! Can you believe it?  I stuck with this for one year and have done my darnedest to make it better, improve and forge ahead with my ever changing creative goals… I am just so happy to be blessed with people who support me in my endeavors and with their encouragement, I make it through the blah days!

This blog started as a diary of sorts that basically only the man friend read but as I started to become more involved with the creative community, I started to make some friends; and seeing comments on posts  from people you don’t know in real life? AWESOME! Over the past year, I have made “friends” from all over the US and some even overseas (the UK and Australia!). I am happy to say that Prim and Propah had over 10,000 views in the past year which, in my humble opinion, is nothing to sneeze at.

So anyways, while I am at home celebrating this achievement with the manfriend, pup and kitterface (possibly dancing and/ or drinking wine), I thought I would let all my new friends share in the celebration as well! What do people love more than a giveaway? Wellp, a BIG giveaway. Over the past year, I have discovered so many amaaaazing and talented ladies (see sidebar where links are of my favorites thus far)… and four of my faves jumped at the chance to make a one of a kind item in honor of my blogiversary! AWESOME, RIGHT? Sooooooo, wanna check out what you can win? One lucky winner will get all 4 of the following super special handmade items….Tadaaaaaaa!

Scarf Loving with a Dash of Buttony Goodness!

So my crafty self was looking at some of the fabric that I just had hanging around and thought that I should try to find a quick and easy project to work on so that I got some crafting satisfaction pretty quickly, ie instant gratification. Enter this little project off of the “I am Momma Hear Me Roar” blog, reconstruction-esque area of the site. Yay for fun projects whilst also being simultaneously awesomely easy! See my take on the Buttony wrap/scarfy thing. Yay!
I started with a scarf that has been in my “Ghosts of Scarves Past” drawer for quite some time. I mean, if I did a botch job on this, then well, I would give it a proper burial without shedding too many tears. Anyhoo, I took that, about a 1/4 yard of cotton fabric from “The Collection” for the pockets, and some buttons from the stash… and was on my way. (Note: Here is where I get nervous because, well, I am ashamed to say I had never done a button hole before)… Anyway, I did it and my only issue came when I realized the scarf was too short. Next time, I’ll know. All in all, it was fun and easy to do!

Watch out for these guys today!
