DIY Bcbg Maxi Dress:

Recreate the look with Flannery's Bcbg Maxi Dress tutorial:

How would you describe your style?

Bright, fun, colorful & sparkly! 

What's your favourite piece in your wardrobe?

My gold leather jacket from Zara (seen here).I actually bought it when I was pregnant but it’s definitely not a maternity jacket!  I just needed something that made me feel less of a mom-to-be and more of a glamorous badass!

Who are your style icons?

My mother has been my style icon since I was born!  Because of her love of beautiful things, she helped to train my eye at a very young age.  She also loved to sew, so my sister and I were always surrounded by amazing fabrics and got to have custom outfits made for us all the time!  Some other favorites are Cyndi Lauper, Iris Apfel and Katy Perry.   

Do you have any favourite designers?

Valentino, Needle & Thread, Vivienne Westwood (I even named my daughter after her!)
, Trina Turk and Tarina Tarantino.

Where are your favourite places to shop for new clothes?

Well let’s just say that when I go into a Kate Spade store, my husband knows that some major damage is about to happen! I also love J.Crew, Dorothy Perkins and Net-A-Porter.

Do you make or customise your outfits?

Yes!  That is actually what my blog is all about- “Tweaking” things to make them better and/or more interesting.  I have been doing it for years and finally decided to start documenting it on my blog, Fashion Tweaker!

Do you have any great tips for mixing up and personalising an outfit?

Yes!  Get crazy!  Mix colors and patterns and textures and wear tons of jewelry! I always say that life is too short to wear black!

 Which other fashion blogs do you love to read?

Macademian Girl is one that I regularly read, I also love Winnipeg Style! My sister does some fun fashion posts on her blog, Bombay Blonde, as well!  Everyone that you feature here on the Cut Out & Keep site is amazing too!
