Something to do with My Free Time

First day back to class and I'm already done with the whole school scene. Not a good sign, haha.

Worn Mon, Jan. 11th:

dolman top - F21
belt - Spring
pants - Miley/Max
boots - thrifted @ Just Like New

Yesterday I headed downtown to run a few errands and ended up at Chapters. Damn I love book stores. I know the selection online is better, and usually cheaper, but there's just something about browsing through crisp new books with a hot coffee that makes me all happy inside.

Anyways, in my browsing I found the most wonderful book and snatched it up right away.
Twinkle Sews is by designer Wenlan Chia of the line Twinkle by Wenlan, and actually shows you (complete with patterns) how to create some of her simpler designs and this season's trends.

She includes some awesome intricate features as well such as pleating, origami folds and pin-tucking, which is great to introduce design elements to beginners.
As someone who is definitely not a professional (never had a class), but loves to sew in her spare time, I'm recommending this book to everyone I know.
I'll be sure to share with you my future projects!


  1. Love your belt. The book looks interesting. I wish I could sew even a little. XD Book stores are amazing, and also wallet draining.

  2. I understand what you mean about books better than internet .. You can touch it, feel it and it's way more exciting ! Love the grey and black ;) !

  3. Thank you for the lovely comment! :)) I agree with LesMod'Amour and you, books just give you this little warm feeling inside as you read them, turning the pages... E-books just don't do it for me :)) <3
    Hope to read more from you xx

  4. O wow, that looks like an amazing book! I want to get my hands on one ASAP!


I'd love to hear from you!
