OOTD+ Lion King Live ūü¶Ā

Happy Sunday lovelies!!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! This weekend, I got a chance to see the Lion King Play in Baltimore at the Hippodrome Theatre and it was marvelous! I cried multiple times, for what reason, I have no idea! This play is a must-see, and I strongly recommend it to everyone. Everything was beautiful and picturesque! I wish I could’ve¬†taken pictures, but I was not allowed to.¬†Overall, it’s a tremendous play, and everyone should definitely see it.


Now onto the Outfit of The Day!! I kept my outfit simple but chic for dinner and the play. I wanted to wear something that was comfortable to walk the streets of Baltimore and keep me warm! All the details about my outfit are listed below! Enjoy the rest of your day and have a blessed week!

Dyne’esha Takes MFW!! (Memphis Fashion Week!)

Hello everyone! Happy Sunday! Hope you all have recovered enough from the weekend to read my blog post! I’m still trying to recover myself, so I won’t blame you if you still need some more time to get yourself together.

So having an internship definitely comes with perks! Obviously, you have to make sure you’re doing above and beyond, to get special perks. However, based on my work ethic, my boss Alex, bought me a ticket to attend Memphis Fashion Week!¬†When I tell you, I was ecstatic, I was ECSTATIC! And, not to mention I got to sit in VIP! Amazing right??!! We went during the Emerging Designer Project time. Each day of fashion week, they showcased a different designer everyday. However, Saturday’s event was strictly for the Emerging Designers here in the Memphis area. Mark my words, NeeshaValore Designs will be featured in Memphis Fashion Week 2018!

So Alex, had her store Ivory Closet featured in the show. So one of her best models¬†Aviana¬†Monasterio¬†modeled in the show as a “freeze” model. (Meaning, she had to pose¬†in front of the Ivory Closet sign until the next showcase.)¬†

It was a wonderful experience for me! I had so much fun! I don’t remember some of the designers from the show, but I took pictures of my favorite looks.

Like I mentioned in my New Arrivals post about my internship, this is the same lady who owns both The Attic Apparel and Ivory Closet. We were at The Attic Apparel shop in Overton Square to get all the clothes ready to take to the show. Below are some pictures of her shop!

Mimi Conference Recap Pt. 2 (Last Day!)

Hello lovelies!!

Okay, so I am finally going to bless y’all with the last and final day of the ever-so amazing Mimi G conference. So let’s get started!

Day 3


Day 3 was the last day which was bittersweet. We concluded with a segment from Tieko Nejon, Tiffany Aliche (The Budgetnista) and the Dahlia Law Group. Our first meeting was with the lovely Mimi herself.¬†She was giving us tips on how to start a fashion and sewing business. There is so much preparation involved when starting a fashion sewing business. I’m not going to go too much into detail for that because it could be a separate blog post. However, I will say it was extremely¬†informative. Tieko spoke on how to set up and properly brand yourself. You literally are your brand, (how you represent yourself) so make sure your brand is always on point! Your website, your email, your product images, all of that are¬†a direct representation¬†of who you are. Be careful. Now Tiffany “The Budgetnista” truly helped me when it comes to budgeting myself. Lord knows I need help with that. There’s¬†so much fabric and patterns out here in the world that deserves my money: The struggle is way too real! Here’s a website she suggested we use for online banking. The catch is that it’s only online so transfering money can become a hassle. It elimates impluse buys (which I am a true victim of). Hopefully that site can be of much use to you all.

Another set of speakers were from the Dahlia Law Group.The lovely ladies were named Allysia & Jill. They broke down the legalities of starting a business. I had no idea that a client could sue me if they trip over my dress form or sewing machine cord breaking a bone or two. I was so misinformed¬†of these types of scenarios because they have never happened to me. As my father once told me, “People will sue you over anything.” so I am now prepared and made sure to clarify what’s in my Homeowner’s Insurance. So thankful for the Dahlia Law Group for clarifying this for an upcoming business owner.

After that informative morning we took our group picture and loaded up on the buses for our FABRIC SHOPPING TRIP!

Okay the moment you all have been waiting for!!! The fabric shopping trip! So we took charter buses down to the Garment District and parked right in front of Michael Levine’s. So of course I took tons of pictures! However, it was too many to put on this post, so I’ll just post my favorites.

The fabric at The Loft was insane lol. This picture is only 1 side of the room. It was boxes and boxes of fabric! I got super lucky and got an entire bag of assortment zippers for $2!!! Steal???? I would think so (: So just an FYI for people who are not¬†familiar with The Loft here are my top 5 facts/suggestions about this lovely place! (So I don’t ramble lol.)

  1. Bring a suitcase or a ginormous bag!
  2. Bring a water bottle (it was way too hot in there!!!!)
  3. Bring your own scissors. They allow you to cut your own fabric and their scissors were a bit dull.
  4. It’s $3 per pound!!!! (YES PER POUND!!!!!!!) You read that correctly. Be smart on what you grab. Heavy sweater knits, pontes, wools, will add to your weight. Chiffon¬†and lightweight knits are good grabs.
  5. Come hands free, (if you can) you’ll need all the hands you can get.

Peep my bag of zippers (; 16lbs of fabric! (Bag #1)

I spent a total of only $42 for all that fabric. (I may post a video or blog post about my experience at the Garment District and the fabrics I purchased in vivid details.) Michael Levine was kind enough to serve us lunch as well! Thanks Subway for those lovely sandmiches (: (I love Subway lol, and yes I said sandmiches).

After we finished our fabric trip, we headed back to the hotel to officially close the conference out. I had the opportunity to pull Mimi and Mrs. Kelly aside to give them their goodie bags (: I made them fold over clutches. I forgot to get a picture of the clutch for Mrs. Kelly, but I did get a picture of the one I made for Mimi.
