My First Zipper Pouch

While putting the finishing touches on my Go Green Tote, I realized I had a quite a bit of red fabric leftover, so I decided to make a quick trip to Joann's Fabric Store to pick up some coordinating fabric to make a zipper pouch, Kindle case, and sunglass pouch out of my scraps.  However,  I've never learned how to sew on a zipper, but it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, I eventually figured it out.  So, from start to finish it only took me a couple of hours to complete my pouch and it was so worth it because I made it.  I can't wait to finish my tote and start making my new Kindle case and sunglass pouch.  When I'm done with my tote, I will post photos, so you can see how everything turned out.

Brown Canvas

  




Blouse (Old Navy), Jeans MNG by Mango via (JC Penney), Brown Sandals (Nine West), Hobo Onna Ehrlich via (Hautelook), Watch Michael Kors via (ebay), Basilissa-Pave Bracelet via (Ily Couture), Devi Bangles (Stella & Dot), and Sunnies (Forever 21) not pictured.


For today's outfit I decided to wear a blouse I purchased from Old Navy several months ago off their clearance rack for $6.  However, after buying it for whatever reason I didn't think that I had anything in my closet to pair with it, so it hung in my closet all summer.  On Sunday I decided to take out my two strand twists and I thought what better day to wear my blouse than on Monday, I knew with my big afro, my blouse and pair of shoes I'd have that 70's theme going on.  Of course while taking pictures my oldest son tells me I look like I'm from the 70's with my outfit and big afro.  HA!!

So I decided to pair my blouse with bootcut jeans, brown sandals and hobo by Onna Ehrlich which by the way will be on sale tomorrow on Hautelook so you may want to stop by and check it out, and gold accessories.

Gray Skies






Gray Sleeveless Dress (Banana Republic), Pink Flower Pin (Forever 21), Gray Suede Pumps (Nine West), Watch Burberry via (Macy's), Handbag Givenchy via (Bergdorf Goodman), and Cape (New York & Company) not pictured, and Sunnies House of Harlow 1960 Chelsea via (Amazon).



Today I decided to wear a Gray Sleeveless Dress I purchased at Banana Republic a couple of years ago, this dress literally hung in my closet brand new with tags until this past April when I lost weight.  On a couple of occasions I almost gave it away to Goodwill and a consignment shop, but for whatever reason I couldn't.  However, after losing my weight I was able to fit into it, I so happy I didn't give it away;)

Although this is my second time wearing my dress, I wanted to wear it again for my blog and before the weather changed.  So I decided to pair my Gray Sleeveless Dress with a black skinny belt, gray suede pumps, a pink flower pin, black handbag and silver watch.
