My Momma Failed to Teach Me... to sew. It's true, while I so desperately wish I knew how to sew (at least be able to alter things), I actually have no idea how to do anything. Look at this skirt from a blog I just started following C&C

I WANT TO BE ABLE TO DO THIS!!! She sewed the whole thing from scratch and shows how she did it here. Love this skirt, love that it is handmade, and wish it was mine ;)

Do you guys sew? If so, how did you learn?

Day to Night, Work to Play- Angie

Hello Friends,

I don't know if ya'll remember (that's right, I am from California and I just said ya'll) but a few posts ago I mentioned that if you had any pictures of outfits you could easily transition from day to night I would love it if you could send them over. Much to my surprise, a few of you did, which is totally awesome (now that sounds a little more like I'm from California).

Anywho, I very much appreciate the pictures and I am looking forward to posting more- so if you have any you would like to share email me at and I will post yours too!

This first celebrity outfit post  features Angie from "The Hotness Your Momma Warned You About" aka the best blog name I have ever seen. Angie's current abode is located in San Francisco, CA and her blog is delicious, I'm sure you guys will LOVE it.

I really like the way Angie pulled off the Day to Night look above. Not only is her outfit completely work appropriate but the changes can all be made easily by modifying a few accessories and adding a jacket. For more details on the rundown of her look go here.

Angie, thank you for sending over the pictures and I look forward to seeing what other looks you create on your blog!

Hello Friends,

I hope you all had a splendid weekend! I had such a great time at the Kenny Chesney concert- I will make sure to post a few pictures later this week. I am awfully behind on my posts this week. Something about the warm San Francisco days I suppose :)

Do you like the foyers above? When I was on my way to work this morning I realized that the entryway in my apartment is a bit bland. The roomie and I put a runner and mirror in the space but we stopped there. I think I need to keep an eye out for decorative pieces because an entryway is one of the most important places in your house- it is the first and last part you see when coming and going from your home!

Do you guys have anything that you have done to your own entryway to make it look prettier?
