The Dress I Made

Hello everyone!!  I'm back!!   I thought I would share with you guys the dress I made with that sheet/blanket thing in my YouTube video.  I actually made it a little while ago.  I have only had two sewing lessons in my life.  No teacher has ever taught me how to sew clothing.  The only thing I learned how to make was this folded holder thing.  I have never sewn with a pattern for clothing before and this dress is completely pattern free.  That's right.  I made this dress by just cutting, sewing and seam ripping (quite a bit because I make mistakes ;)). 

This dress is not perfect by any means.  But I am pretty proud of myself for doing not to bad of a job when I have never been taught.  I am hoping in the future to take some classes because I would love to know how to do clothing that I can wear all the time.  Especially for the way I like to dress.  Sometimes its hard to find clothing you like that is reasonable.  So I think it would be a lot of fun to get material at thrift stores for a couple bucks and make something that I can wear all the time...that it will look like it came from a store. :) 

So that's my dress!  I hope you liked taking a look at it.  Thanks so much for stopping by! 
Love, Morgan <3 (btw, this look is makeup free except some lipstick and gloss.)

A YouTube video?!

Hello everyone!  I have put a video up on YouTube.  I actually put it up awhile ago, but have yet to share it with you all.  So, I thought it was a good time to do so.  Sorry if the quality isn't the best.  I recorded it on my phone. ;)

This next week I will be at Church camp helping babysit for some dear friends.  I hope you all have an amazing upcoming week!!  Also, I just want to say a huge THANK YOU for all of the lovely comments on my pervious post.  You'll never know how much they mean to me. <3  Love you guys and I hope you have a blessed day!  ~Morgan

My Style Clothing

Hello everyone!  I thought it would be fun to share some summer clothing that I really like.

Isn't this such a cute swimsuit?!  I love it. <3

And this one? <3

I love this sailor dress!

So cute!

I think this is pretty. <3

Again, super cute!

I love this outfit combo!  The only two things I probably wouldn't wear with it would be the sunglasses and earrings.  I would do pearl earrings instead.  I really like pearls. <3

So stinkin cute!  And the little camera?!  <3

I love this blue top. <3

Lovely picture!  Though, I would wear the blue dress. :D

What was your favorite clothing item?

All of these photos are from my Pinterest board My Style.

God bless!

Reasons to Start a Blog

Hello everybody!  I can't believe it's already June!!  Time sure does fly.  I thought I would share with you guys some reasons to start your own blog if you don't have one.

 For me, I started a blog just because. I don't think that I really knew what I was going to do with my blog.  I think I was leaning towards a fashion blog.  You can read my first post here.

When I first started this blog I wasn't involved with any other blogs.  I had a few blogs that I followed and by that I mean bookmarking them on my iPad. :)  I didn't comment or anything.  I started this blog in March of last year and in August I still hadn't done another post, but my Welcome one. 

Then I commented on my friend Olivia's blog, Meanwhile, in Rivendell... and she responded to my comment!  It made me feel so good that she was talking with me.  Then I was checking out her Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious blogs page and she put my blog on there!  And she commented on my Welcome post! 

That is when I decided to pick back up the blog that I had abandoned and keep going.  And I am so glad that I did!  Here are some reasons to start your own blog.

1.  Meeting new friends.  I had no idea that I would end up with so many wonderful people to call friends that I have never even met before (though it would be awesome one day if we could!). 

2.  I have improved in my punctuation and writing skills.  And I am still learning!  Thank goodness my Mom is an awesome proof reader.  Thanks Momma! :D

3.  Get your creative juices flowing.  With headers and post ideas (I also think I've been crafting more since starting a blog:)).  I really like doing headers, that's why they change so frequently (this new one looks kinda springy, but I don't care:)).  Post ideas are not as easy for me, but this one came to me so that's good! :D

4.  Free books!  I'm signed up with some companies that give you books for an honest review on your blog and one on a retail site.  It's really awesome and I really enjoy it. 

5.  Being more bold.  Not just for blogging, but in everyday life.  I follow some fashion blogs that I really like as well.  You may or may not know that I LOVE vintage fashion (everything vintage in general).  

Blogging has helped me wear what I want to wear and not care about people staring at me.  In fact I have gotten lots of compliments!   Last week a lady said I looked like the girl from The Notebook!  I have never seen the movie, but I know what she looks like.  I love this quote, "People will stare. Make it worth their while. "― Harry Winston.  Little disclaimer, I do not dress this way every day, but I do it often! :D

6.  It's fun.  It's fun to do posts and get comments and talk with people that have the same interests as you. Its fun to know that people like you for you.  Always be yourself, for that is who God created you to be.  He made only one of you, so be you, don't try to be someone else.  God loves you just the way you are.

I hope you guys have an awesome weekend!  Towards the end of this next week I'm going camping to Tahoe!!  I'm sooo excited!  I'll try to get a post up before I go.  Also, Rachel Starr Thomson is giving away a Kindle and a bunch of books!  If you'd like to enter click right HERE.  Love you guys! <3
