DIY Funky Print Dress


Hi Darlings,

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I spent it mostly working and planning for my son's birthday next week. I also went to church on Sunday, and I promise you, the message was for me. I went looking for an answer to something that my husband and I are currently dealing with, and I got my answer loud and clear. Does that ever happen to you? You go to church, and while sitting there you start thinking "how does he know?" "Is he talking about me?"

Today's look is a quick an easy throw-it-together-in-a-rush sorta look. I had a last minute appointment that I need to get to. Since I had just made myself this T-shirt Dress as a test for a new tutorial, I have been working on (a fresh take on my T-shirt Maxi Tutorial) I threw it on with my favorite black Forever 21 Blazer (old), Steve Madden Booties, and Michael Kors Clutch.  The FABRIC is a gorgeous ITY print that can be found HERE.

  3. Love the dress. I know what you mean, sometimes you feel as if someone told the pastor on your behalf, but then again I guess God did that.

  6. Oh yeah, The Lord has sent me answers a lot via the preacher's message. And I am so glad for it. Just when you get ready to make a step YOU THINK is right he will steer you in HIS direction and path for your life. Ever grateful for his grace and mercy. BTW: This fabric and dress it Super Fab!

  7. You never cease to impress... I adore your choice in prints and fabrics and how you can pull a look together. When I attend worship service, it is always with the expectation of hearing from our Father. Sometimes I receive an answer for a situation that I'm concerned about right then, but most times it's for what I may encounter in the coming week or weeks. Continued blessings to you Mimi and your family <3

  16. When we go to the house of the Lord, I believe that the WORD is for all of us. Everyone get a different message and answer, but we all benefit from what is taught to us.

  25. Mimi I feel like when you have an excellent body you can make a towel look good! You always dazzle and inspire. Can't wait for the tutorial! I'm glad you got what you needed on Sunday! I feel that God may not give you what you want, but always finds a way to give us what we need! And sometimes it's that message of clarity is what's needed!
