I’m on a personal journey of discovery to accept and embrace what is. For years I have been trying to live up to an idea, an illusion, of what I should be, and have forgotten to simply see beauty in all my flaws, all my imperfections, and to focus on growth, on starting right here, right now, and enjoying each moment of my life as it is.
In this DIY I show you how to make a pair of trendy cropped wide legged pants – more commonly known as “culottes” in the fashion sphere. I’ve always wanted a pair of these, but I wasn’t sure if it would suit my style, so I decided to make myself a pair. This is such a great way to try out a trend to see if you like it or not.
In this DIY I show you how to make a super cute t-shirt dress with pockets and pretty finishes on the hemline and sleeves, using an existing oversized t-shirt. T-shirt dresses are the perfect item to rock during the hot summer months. Simply pair it with booties, sneakers or gladiator sandals to exude an effortlessly stylish edge.
It’s been a while since I posted one of my creations. Thing is, I’ve been making a whole bunch, but they’re all unfinished because I’ve been naughty, well, busy.
I nearly fell off my chair when I received an invitation to attend the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Cape Town media launch at the Table Bay Hotel, which took place this past Wednesday.
Happy Monday, beautiful! I wanted to show you one of my latest creations – this maxi dress/top. I have always loved maxi dresses but for some reason they just don’t look that great on me. They look great on everyone else but I just feel weird in them – probably because I’m not showing off any leg and I just feel so… trapped.
I’ve been noticing the tennis skirt across the fashion bloggersphere and I’ve always wanted to try out pleats. So, I decided to challenge myself by making myself one!
After about a week of going offline, I have finally re-launched Scarlet Aura blog’s new look and feel. Among the craziness of work, life, husband, pets, friends, family, blogging, and studying, I always make time for my creative passion.
I recently got my sewing machine back after having it serviced and I can’t even begin to tell you how much I’ve missed her! Winter is around the corner and I’ve started working on a few sewing projects that promises to keep me warm and looking stylish at the same time.
