"BEAN There, Done That!"- My Chicago Trip Photo-Diary


Life is like a camera:
focus on what’s important,
capture the good times,
develop from the negatives,
and if things don’t work out,
just take another shot!”



I had the pleasure of visiting Chicago a couple of weeks ago for a friend's wedding. I was only there for one night, but I really enjoyed my time. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen a couple pictures from my trip. Well, here's an abbreviated photo diary. Enjoy!

See everyday as a new chapter.”

"Pink Ruffles & Gold Shapes" - My Chicago Wedding OOTD





As I mentioned in my previous post, I was in Chicago for a wedding. At first, I had decided to wear something I already had in my closet. But the day before my departure, around noon, I changed my mind. Crazy, right?! Anyway, I quickly whipped up this simple yet chic Ankara dress, and it took me about 6 hours from start and finish.

"Old Hollywood Glam" - Customized Wedding Gown (The Process & The Result)

Hello everyone, and Happy Tuesday!

I just got back from Chicago on Sunday, after attending my friend's wedding. I had the pleasure of transforming Eji's wedding dress from plain to glam. It was truly an honor to take on this challenge as I had never worked on anyone's wedding dress before...EVER! But she trusted me enough to help make her dream come true [I just had to use that phrase...lol!]

Here's the transformation from start to finish.
