Outfit of the Day: Alterations

Here’s another dress that was tailored by my go to lady Mrs. Olga. I’m such a happy client and I can’t express that enough. She’s a professional seamstress who specializes in alterations! I mean you really won’t find someone who’s professional, fast, and AFFORDABLE like her.

I wanted to share her information with you guys if you live in the San Fernando Valley and are looking for someone to do alterations among other things. She has her own little shop in Canoga Park solely operated by her. I typically taker her 10-15 pieces at a time and when she calls to let me know that everything is ready (usually in a week), I already have another 15 pieces for her to work on. I’m taking her my whole wardrobe! There’s nothing like having everything in your closet fit your body the way it’s suppose to. I have endless options now and I have her to thank.

Oh and by the way, this is the same lady who altered my gown 4 hours before the Elton John Oscars Party. I made plans to attend the event last minute, I went to the Topanga mall to buy a dress the same day! Since the dress didn’t fit me properly, I knew I was going to need emergency alterations.That’s when my husband googled for a local seamstress, found Mrs. Olga on Yelp, he called her and told her our situation, and she got it done in 2 hours!!

Outfit of the Day: Signs of Fall

There’s nothing like frisky cold afternoon that signals the correct season. I took full advantage and wore my old Bronx over-the-knee boots and a warm and cozy new scarf from Target. It’s really become a fall favorite this year! I matched my lipstick with the red-ish thread in the scarf as the final ‘accessories’ to pull the entire look together.

Outfit of the Day: When the Pants Fit

I finally found a trusted and experienced seamstress who is now my go to lady for custom made clothing and alterations. These printed pants where from the first batch of clothing I took in about 2 weeks ago. Now, they fit like a glove and I have such a variety of things that I can actually wear. There’s nothing like having clothes fit you the way they’re suppose to. I’ll be featuring tons of different printed pants for the next month that have been sitting in my closet for the past 2 years and never wore because I didn’t think I had the time for alterations. Miss Olga delivers about 12 pieces of mine every two weeks and thanks to her, I’ve had so many wearable options in my wardrobe. Oh and not to mention, shes affordable!

Outfit of the Day: This is fall

The thing about living in Southern California is that I can’t fully embrace fall just yet. As much as I would love to wear tights and scarfs, I will literally overheat if I do so. While it’s a blessing to have beautiful sunny days all year long, sometimes (most often at the end of each season) all I want is a drastic change in my wardrobe. Can we at least have one full day of cold and rain please? With that being said, this is my first outfit I’m documenting on my blog for this lovely hot fall season.
