Enjoy your blanket Nicole! Shoot me over an email and I'll get your info over to Jameson Monroe.
A big thanks to everyone who participated in the giveaway! I hope you all have a great weekend. The hubs and I are heading down to LA tomorrow for a little shopping and dinner. What are your plans?
So when my mom and I went down to LA's fabric district, I had a full blown 3 page typed out list of everything I was looking for. That's the only way to do the district. You need to know what you are looking for beforehand because it is easy to get overwhelmed with so many options. I left that day with about 1/4th of what I needed, but I did get some amazing stuff.
I scored this gorgeous fabric for $2 a pound. It is super light, so I think I got about 5 yards for only around $3
This is exactly what I was looking for. I have something really pretty in mind with this stuff.
Coral jersey is always a necessity
It was love at first sight with this next one...
I knew I wanted some gold sequined fabric, and I am just obsessed with this. Isn't it gorgeous?! The skirt I have in mind for this is definitely not maternity friendly. I have going to have a hard time not making the skirt until I've had the baby!
and now for the grand finale...
I ended up getting about 60 yards of this bad boy. Can you say cardigans? The amazing workers at Michael Levine hauled this across the street and all the way up to our car! Once I'm feeling a little better, and back in my own home, you might be seeing some new editions to my etsy shop.
I have some exciting news to share with you guys today...
I'm pregnant with baby #2! I am due the end of January and just hitting the end of my first trimester. We couldn't be more excited for this new little one to join our family of 3.
I've been suuuper nauseous so far with this pregnancy. I wasn't sick one day with Bradley, so I'm really not used feeling this crappy. It hits me usually around 4pm and gets progressively worse during the night. And night is usually when I sew/blog.
Hence - not a lot of blogging or sewing going on around here.
I'm hoping I start feeling more myself as I head into the second trimester, cause I have a LOT of things bouncing around in my mind that I want to sew. And I can't wait to show you some of the loot I picked up at the fabric district the other day! But it's 10:30pm and my stomach is churning, and my bed is calling my name, so that will have to wait for another day.
oh, and p.s. - I can't even tell you how many pictures from the scarf giveaway that went directly in the trash. I am showing way faster this time around and I'm in that middle, "is she prego or is that a gut" stage. It's just lovely.

Have you seen some of Kate's dresses during her recent trip to Santa Barbara? They are out of this world classy. The polo match that they attended in Santa Barbara is just 30 minutes from me..... For about 2.5 seconds I seriously considered braving the crowds for a glimpse of the royal duo.
great color, love the twist at the waist
I love the print on this one. Almost every dress she wears pulls in right at her teeny tiny waist and is so flattering. And the hem on all of these knee length dresses is impeccable. They hit at the perfect spot.
I just got some cream lace to do a dress that I designed that actually looks very similar to this one. I might just have to try it with a navy lace too...
love to the love this Jenny Packham gown. It looks like liquid gold.
obsessed with this Alexander McQueen gown. she looks gorgeous.
I was lucky enough to get to review one, and let me just say, this is quickly becoming one of my summer staples. It's lightweight, easy to wear, and helps create a great casual look. Plus it's got stripes, so you can't really go wrong.
Do you want one of these babies all to yourself? Just make sure you are an Elle Apparel follower and leave a comment telling me what you would pair with this scarf!
The giveaway will start today and go through Thursday, July 14th (midnight PST), and I'll announce the winner on Friday the 15th.
