Last minute road trips with the girls are the best! Wouldn’t you agree? Especially when there’s shopping involved. ;D. While in LA I had the chance to check out Mood Fabrics for the first time ever. And let me tell you, I was like a kid in a candy store. If I had more time I could have stand there for hours (which would have resulted in spending lots more money). Anyways, I just want to briefly share my experience at Mood Fabrics in LA.
|The first thing I saw in the window at Mood. Love the mixture of magazine covers, stripes and polka dots!|
|Rows and rows and rows of fabric!|
After sending about an hour in the store I came across this fabric below. Its khaki/fuchsia multicolor floral and animal jersey print stretchy material. I’m not quite sure what I’m going to make with this but I was thinking I could possibly make a long pencil skirt or a body con midi dress. We will see. 😉
Their button collection was pretty awesome too. Even though I currently was not in need of buttons I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to pick out a few. And I will let you in on a little secret. When I come across a really cool looking button I just cant pass up, I generally just buy two and turn them into a pair of earrings. 😉
Below are the buttons I ended up purchasing. They have a kind of a nautical vibe to them but also has that signature lion design that is really in style right now. I also picked up a larger button so that I can use it for a matching necklace. I will definitely post pics of this little project when its all done. 😀
Over all my experience at Mood was awesome! Staff there were very helpful. Yes, the prices are a bit high but if you have the opportunity, I would definitely recommend checking them out.
