Give-aways and fellow fashion bloggers

Bella Q
I just attended the second Sacramento Fashion Bloggers meet-up hosted by Bella Q, from The Citizen Rosebud and Street Style Sacramento and it was a veritable love fest of mutual admiration.  You might think fashion blogger could be a caddy back-stabby bunch, but that's so not the case.
For instance, Angeline from The New Professional has recently been hailed by Forbes Magazine as a top 20 professional fashion blogger! She's been listed on Independent Fashion Blogger's Links of the Week half a dozen times and she's completely humble and down to earth.
Or 20-year-old Coco from Muffin Top Baby; this gorgeous plus size model has been blogging for a matter of months and already has offers from a sponsor.
With all this talent in a small town and space you'd think jealous/pride might over take these gorgeous girls, but the meeting was just like hanging out with a bunch of dear friends, even though most of us had just met.
We met up for some shopping at Midtown Bazaar and then to Streets of London for beverages and photo shoots.

(You can read about some of these darling bloggers in this month's Midtown Monthly)

One of my new favorite bloggers/friends from the meet-up is Nicki from Little Bits of Nikknak. This 23-year-old high school photography teacher posts about thrifting and crafting and is featuring her very first give away right now.

Here are some other give-aways taking place in the fashion blogging world currently:
A Spoonful of Love: Miss Megan greeting cards
Statements Fashion : Modcloth gift certificate

Looking forward to the next event!

Firefly Portraits: The Crew of Serenity

I've been heard at work making this fun posters featuring the crew of Serenity with memorable quotes.
I've done everyone except Simon, mostly because I haven't found a compelling quote from him yet.
So here's a long graphic of all the posters, perfect for pinning! (hint hint).
Right now you can get $5 off any of these great prints, t-shirts or tote bags in my Society6 shop.

I Shot First - A Han Solo Halloween

This past Halloween I wanted to do something inherently sexy. Who is sexier than Han Solo? Answer: no one.

I started with pictures of Han. Specifically from "A New Hope."

Here are the elements: Off white, mandarin-collar shirt Black/navy vestDark pants with red stripesBlack boots (I already owned a pair)Belt and holsterBlaster
I started at Thrift Town, where I found a pair of dark slacks, a shirt, and a black suede jacket. I think I spent around $12. I cut the sleeves off the jacket and used red duct tape for the stripes. 
I ordered a toy blaster online, it only comes in white and orange. So I had to spray paint it. I used this tutorial.

If I was going to go further with this costume I'd make a replica of the belt, like this awesome woman did.

Luke really wanted to be Luke this year. His costume was a little more tricky. We bought a karate uniform online, he used a pair of khaki pants he already had and we tried to make the boots out of Ace Bandages, but that didn't w…

It's bike month everyone! Don't forget to check out, and register to win prizes and such. In other exciting news, my amazing friend Libby can do anything! She saw my post about panniers a while back and got it in her head to make a pair of these roll-up brooks brand panniers - and she did. Here's the story:
Hey there Melody,  Remember these (Brooks roll-up panniers)?Well, I was so in love that I decided to make my own. They still need a few finishing touches but I was so excited I just had to show you. 
I'm going to Tandy Leather on Monday to get the studs for the little internal straps and maybe get a set of leather handles to sew on top so I can carry them like a satchel while shopping.  I made the pattern based on the size of a paper grocery bag so they should be big enough for two full bags of groceries! I think they look perfect on my Gazelle, don't you? (Yes, they look amazing).
I wanted to make them a little prettier on the inside so …
