I visited the LA fashion district in all its glory in just 45 mins!👏🏿👏🏿👏🏿👏🏿👏🏿
After researching the LA fashion district, I knew what I was up against. I also knew that we didn’t have enough time (neither did I want to subject my group to indulging me for a few hours🤣😂).
Maybe it was just me. I didn’t want to be disappointed by the fact I couldn’t visit every store and come away with tons of gorgeous pieces. My M.O. was to get in and out. Find one or two main places to visit and be gone.🙌🏿😍
There was a budget. I sure did make sure I labelled it and held myself accountable to just that.
At the end of the day I was very satisfied. 45 mins later I had four gorgeous pieces and we were on our way. 45 mins guys!! It was some serious self control. And on top of that, I only spent $10 US!😊🙏🏽
With only a carry-on suitcase I had to be sensible about the amount of fabric I bought. As well as the fact I need to sew more of my stash. (See below)😁
The moral of the trip besides self control as an enthusiastic creative is also having a plan. With my clothing business, I have to plan my fabric purchases now as I consider my creative process and products. It’s easy to go overboard when you don’t have a plan as a creative. I had factors to consider and I stuck to them. LA fashion district is an amazing place. So much to see. Obviously, I have to go back and spend more time.
Even though I did a tiny fabric haul and one pattern (Jo-Ann) it was really good to see this area. I can’t wait to return.
I trust you guys had an amazing February. I will be back in March to show you some of my makes with what I purchased.
Thanks for stopping by. The sewing chronicles continue.
