Tropical Safari

 Summa Summa Summa Time…
We are in the middle of Summer and who in the world wants it to end? Not this girl! So….guess what? I made this skirt about 3-4 months ago. I know I know. As amazing as it is, how in the world could I have let this this baby slip away? Well, it’s the middle of summer and I felt that now was the perfect time to show her off.
safari6So ofcourse I found my fabric at my favorite fabric shop on Etsy; GlamFabrics. No surprise right? LOL! I definitely stocked up from that pretty little shop.  You should too! There are so many hidden gems there! You can check it out HERE. Anyhow, I’ve totally been geeking over pleats for the past few months and I wanted to somehow do something different than your typical gathered skirt. So pleats it was!
safari3 Lets talk about this tote!! I’ve had this thing for 2 years and NEVER used it. I mean seriously….Have I lost my mind?  I love it! Especially with this outfit.  Its a perfect beach bag that gives me a bit of a Moroccan vibe. Cute!
safari5 So as far as the pleats in this skirt. If you didn’t know they are specifically called box pleats. They aren’t too difficult.  Here are a few tutorials that I found on Pinterest that could help you get started. Check HERE and HERE.

Glam Fabrics

So lately, I’ve been on the hunt for that perfect cotton fabric to make my Spring Skirts and I stumbled across this amazing fabric shop on Etsy.  Yes there are several fabric shops on Etsy, but this one in particular stands out to me because the owner is really nice.  The shop I am referring to is called Glam Fabrics and it’s is owned by Jennie.  I do not know her personally but I talked to her through email about how amazing her fabric was and she decided out of the kindness of her heart to give myself and my viewers a discount on her fabric.  Trust me, not all Etsy shop owners are that nice.  Jennie wanted to reach out to you all and give you the best deal.
glamfabrics So take advantage of this great deal.  Before I give you the discount code, I wanted to show you guys my fabric fabrics from her shop that are definitely on my wish list for this year.  I plan on making skirts and maxi dresses from these fabrics.
fabCollageAren’t these amazing prints?!  I Love them! The fabric is designer fabric with excellent quality.  Ok so stop by her shop and say hello.  You must hurry and use the discount if you plan on purchasing because I’m not sure when the discount ends. Who wants to pay full price right?
SHOP HERE: www.glamfabrics.etsy.com
15% Off Discount Code: tabitha14

So here is a sneak peek of some future OOTD blog posts that I have planned. I made these items with the fabric shop that I mentioned and you can too!
