Now that my dress drooling is over, here are my favorites of the dresses I’ve seen from the MET gala, Manus x Machina. It makes me want to build an eclectic dress and find a fancy event to attend. Well, I do have a few weddings to go to this year so instead of going out and buying something, I am planning on embroidering/appliquéing a dress- an upcycled jersey from t-shirts. For my birthday I got the book Alabama Studio Sewing + Design and I LOVE it. It has around ten patterns in it, with instructions on how they stencil and embroider on their clothing at Alabama Chanin. We will see how my dress turns out!

Selena Gomez – love the pairing of the fitted leather vest over billowy chiffon.
