Kate Spade holiday looks....

These are such great outfits from the Kate Spade clothing line.......please let me win the lottery : )

This is just a fabulous green for a holiday party and the purple shoes are fab with it

I love shirts like this with a lot of ruffles, bows and extra stuff to give interest,
I'd probably wear a cardi with it for the office, maybe a great or even a muted color

So cute and proper.....I would totally wear the shoes below with it.

This is just a fun, cute dress......and love the GREEN!!!!!

Ok, so I should know what to wear with a little black dress (LBD) but I don't : ) Corinna's bachelorette party is Sat night and the dress code is a LBD, but I'm still a little sick and I'm sure it's going to be cold. I can not figure out what to wear over top to keep myself warm that will look cute since I am the only single one that's going to be there. I really don't have anything so I would have to go get something......the only think I do have is a 3/4 sleeve cardigan. Any Suggestions?!?!?!?!

Sewing, sewing, sewing this past weekend

Last Minute Lucy

So, I get myself into sticky situations b/c I'm such a procrastinator......I'm going to have a table at this Children Helping Children event on Sun and I have 4 large bags, 2 small bags and 4 wristlets made. I have everything cut out, interfaced and magnetic clasps put in to make 9 more large bags and 5 more small bags. The only thing I need to do is fold in and sew the straps together, add my labels and pockets, and sew the bags together. Sounds like a lot? Yeah, it does. I'm hoping to get most of that finished tonight. I have to "bust a move" if I want to get that done. I want to go to Artscape tomorrow night, and I already have plans to go to Philly for the day on Sat with my sister and friend. So, I have tonight, tomorrow night and some on Sun morning to get this done, lol. I might have to not go to Artscape tomorrow night and just plan to go after the event on Sun. It might not be as busy then also. I'll be taking pics of the progress but probably won't post them until Mon or Tues night. tata for now, and hope to see all the locals on Sun in Hampstead.
