When did you first start getting crafty and creative with fashion?

I came upon a LiveJournal community called “T-Shirt Surgery.” A bunch of people were turning their old t-shirts into something more wearable. I was lurking the site for about three weeks and decided that I should start making some clothes out of my old t-shirts. I bought a sewing machine for $79.00 and after two weeks of practice, I posted my first finished project onto the community. I got so many great feedbacks on my first project and everything else just started from there.

Who are your favorite fashionistas and designers?

My favorite designer of all time would have to be Alexander McQueen. His garments are not only creative but they are distinctively unique. It’s hard to not look at his garment and not see Alexander McQueen in it. Sarah Burton does such a great job carrying on his designs. You can still see bits of him even in her creations.

What are your ultimate style tips?

Always wear something you are confident and comfortable in. It might look fantastic, but if you can't feel that rush of confidence, it will show later on during the day. Confidence could make anything look good, and lack off could bring the most expensive outfit down.

If you could borrow one thing from a celebrities wardrobe, what & who would you choose?

I would love to rummage through Lady GaGa’s closet. I am sure there is something in there for everyone. I would love to have one of her dragon shoes by Alexander McQueen from her “Bad Romance” video. I wouldn’t wear them, because I am a danger to myself in shoes over 3”. I would put them in a glass case and admire them as a part of my daily routine.

Which fashion blogs do you love to read? and these two ladies are extremely creative and they manage to keep DIYing cool and fashionable.

Do you do any other crafts and what are your hobbies?

Crafting and sewing is my hobby, and I’m lucky that I could also do what I love as a job. Other than that, I really enjoy being around my family. I like going on jogs or taking walks with my Hubs. I also enjoy cooking and eating with my mom and dad.

Is there anything else you'd like to add?
