Hey BloG HeaDS!
I have got some good and semi bad news....
Since you care I'll give you the good news first.
I have been looking for a part time job for quiet some time and I FINALLY found 1! Since I don't really get too detailed about my personal life( on my blog) just know that I will be working nights once again.
The bad news is I won't be able to post as I used to. I'm working in a hiphop night club from 9pm-4am!
Which means I will be sleeping during the day as I did last year :-(
I worked as a hostess and coat checker in a manhattan club 2008-2009 which was the same crazy hours. It's been a long while since I stayed up those hours but I think I can manage. Although working the club life is not a career I want to pursue, I do want to make extra cash so I can further invest into ShopmyMadonya Webshop and all my clothing projects. Selling on ebay and blogspot isn't the fastest money maker at times, but since I found this side job hopefully things can come full circle for me. I will keep you posted with my journey in this new place I will be working in as well as the few projects I will be working on. Ask anyone that works a night shift nows how aggitated one can feel in the AM. Especially working long hours on your feet....
But I'm gonna drink my gangsta juice and hange tuff for these next few months.
Hope you guys have an excellent weekend...
as for me Back to sleep I have a looong night ahead!
Luv you Blog Bunnies!

Hope everyone is having a good week so far. As I told you I had a few project to finish up during the time I didn't have my lappy AKA laptop. And what you are about to see below is my two creations I tackled during those 2 weeks plus. I have been soo inspired by certain fabrics I knew i was eventually go back to one of my favorite prints.
Although some people tend to stray away from strips I always been attracted it in some ways.
So when I got my hand on the two different colored stripped fabrics I went a lil' nutts. So follow me ( not in a lame twitter fashion lol) and let me explain what these designs actually are...

Alrighty! This here is a two piece set. A nautical inspired fitted top with flared waist. And below I have on a high waisted tight mini skirt. The fabric is stretch so no zipper closer here. I had no idea where I was going with this design but once I made the top I new exactly what I wanted the Entire design to be.
If you sense an old school vibe here your right on target, that is what I wanted to accomplish. You see as I learn more about sewing I see so many different techniques I didn't even know I could do. But one thing for sure if a trait such as sewing can be passed down from one generation to another then you bet your ass that trait has definitely been passed on to me. And BELIEVE ME I am soo proud and humbled by every thing I learn everyday...
Oh I plan to put this outfit on my skinny bitch ( my mannequin lol) so you guys can see closer details of this entire outfit....
My lovely Hot Pink Nautical stripped skirted mini Dress.
What I love about this dress is if it wasn't for the shortness of it and the peep of my outrageous cleavage some would think this dress is for a lil girl LOL! But With my crazy designs brewing in my brain I envisioned a SUPER GIRLIE dress that has a dash of sexy chic appeal. And looking at this dress from a different perspective you would think this dress was pretty easy to make but trust me .....HELL NAH IT WAS NOT! I really had a struggle with the making of this dress. And I though I was getting ahead of myself with this design I had no training in making. But honestly after waiting for my lappy for soo damn long I had no choice but to occupy my time on focusing on this design. I don't watch much tv for a person who works from home. And fashion is my my go to when I'm bored, sad, uninspired, happy, cranky, horny, excited.... yeah I know I'm crazy LOL!
But If my future self would have approached me a few months back and told me that I was going to pick sewing and creating designs I would've said....GETTHEFUCKOUTTAHERE!!!!!!!!!
God works in many ways....

So here it is my latest two designs. I Hope you guys like....I mean I had some of you waiting for a minute. And I kept getting hit in the head with these curve balls. But I managed to take these pics for ya so I can finally display what I been keeping under wraps.
One thing I'm still not used to is being called a 'designer'. Although I am designing and creating a few garments I feel I have to get a few more years of this under my belt. My mother has been a seamstress for over 30 years of her life. She has perfected her craft so well that she can pretty much sew with her eyes closed. I just never knew all my younger days going to her job and watching her sew piece after piece would actually stick with me. How can this even be when I never actually did this before?
I still question it sometimes but I am humbled by every lovely gracious compliment , half ass thumbs up, and every hater comment that is said under ones breathe.
Like my girl Kelis says
'You don't have to like me, but you will respect me'
So with that said I'm signing out, It has been a CRAZY long day...
It's pushing midnight so time to get in the shower and catch some z's. Enjoy the rest of your week Blog babies...SEE YOU NEXT TIME

CHANEL 2010 FALL ready to wear collection

You can almost never go wrong with Karl Lagerfeld. His creative thoughts and mind of design can be seen as complicated as a scientist mixers concoction's. When I think I seen it all with this CHANEL FALL 2010 ready to wear collection Karl himself seems to reach out through my lappy screen and SLAPS THE FIRE out of me. Yet he keeps that same stern serious face and all the while giving me unsuspected chills...literally down my spine.
When I first saw this show it seems people where more blown by the Scandinavian ice bergs placed as the center piece of the show. For those of us not having the luxury of being there I guess you can say we are lucky to be able to put all our focus on all 77 beautifully crafted Chanel pieces. I am still not a fan of fake fur but Karl can pretty much turn anything UN trendy into something unbelievably classic.And when Karl gave a statement to where he found inspiration for this particular show he stated that he dreamt of this collection. And after looking at every detail of this show I truly believe that only a majestic dream can be the blue print for such an incredible show. This Artic image was not only in the background but also embellished in every garment and super sick accessories. From the 'Frozen" like infamous Chanel quilted purse to the faux hair 'Ice Block' heels the show actually had ( slightly ;-) me excited to see these on market next fall. What I truly love the most is the white snow bunny gowns that ( to me) looks made out of soft sculpted snow.
Well these are some of my favorite images courtesy of
Go check out the entire show, it will not disappoint for sure.
enjoy! MUAH****
