Featured In: Hadar Magazine!

You might remember that back in September, new Jewish fashion mag Hadar Magazine featured my Designer DIY. I had such an awesome time sharing my love of DIY that when they graciously asked me to participate again in their winter issue I jumped at the opportunity! A huge thank you to the ladies behind Hadar Magazine for sharing my blog with your readers.

After a bit of brainstorming, I decided to create my own version of the chic embellished sweatshirt:

^^Screen shot of my article - love how it turned out :)^^

^^My Inspiration Board^^

^^Materials: Sweatshirt, everything else: Michaels^^

^^Sketch of desired design. I altered it slightly for the finished product but it was great to start with a very detailed idea and then change as needed.^^

^^Figuring out the placement on the sweatshirt.^^

^^Work in progress :)^^

Ok, let's address a couple things right away:

1. I am obviously no longer pregnant :) But this was a fun stroll down not-too-distant-memory lane...

2. These pictures were taken at the end of South Florida.
Yes, I was 36 weeks pregnant.
Yes, it was 95* that day. 
Yes, I am wearing a shell, a long sleeve tee AND a sweatshirt + suede booties.
and Yes, I was sweating freakin' bullets/about to pass out...
but hey, ya gotta suffer a little bit for fashion, right?! No? Just me...?

Well at the very least, I needed to make it believable for a magazine article coming out in January :) Don't worry, we were only outside for 10 minutes and I drank a couple gallons of water once we went inside...#notanexaggeration!

{Sweatshirt -sim, Shirt -sim, Skirt: Mimi -sim, Bag (old color) -sim, Shoes, Bracelets: J.Crew Factory (old) -sim/splurge, Francescas (old) -sim/splurge, Lips}

Thanks again to the whole Hadar Magazine team; I am incredibly grateful to have had this opportunity again!

Your design is soooooo cute. Even if I could muster up the patience to do something like this, there's no way it would ever turn out like that!
