Is the Summer in the Hamptons really over?

Catchy title, huh?

I do actually have my own story for that title...

unfortunately I only have 1 more of these dresses available, up to a size 2T, unless I start actively seeking out more of the pink floral fabric...which at this point...is debatable. You can find the dress relisted in my etsy shop this evening.

Check out these Momi girls sporting their Hamptons wear...fabulous as always!

Now to the other side of the story..so I got to daydreaming in my head...would it honestly be possible for me to snag myself Kate Major's journalist position. Afterall...it was my dream in life to move to New York City...somehow I ended up in Hawaii & now back here in Wernersville. I'm not sure if Star knows it but, come November when Jon (minus Kate & her 8) goes out to Hawaii for Shane Victorino's wedding....they are definitely going to want me on their team.

Now here is a story I've been holding out on you. For 2 years...yes, TWO solid years....I have been trying & trying with all of my mite to master high key pictures. See..when I started out in "boutique world" little did I know that you had to also be an accomplished writer & photographer. The writing part I had down pat...the photography...not so much. Lucky for me Lily was born with a full head of hair & in Hawaii the sun was always shining. But, one thing that I wanted so badly to master was "high key" pictures. I'm sure if you are anyone who knows me personally you have heard me talk about "high key" pictures on numerous occasions. It's basically when the background is completely blown out of the picture..like you would get from a studio portrait. In Hawaii I tried to turn out 4X4 kitchen into a high key studio with a white sheet, a white board floor, & 4 huge worker lights from Lowe's...talk about heat. Poor Lily & a complete flop. After we moved to PA I tried & tried & tried again. I bought the big studio lights, a newer/better camera, set up a white sheet, had the girls play in front of it for about 4 hours & nothing. Defeat. After I found out from a friend who lives in my neighborhood that our backyard neighbors thought that I had some "Jon Bennet Ramsey" thing going on with Lily (HAHA) I decided I wanted more options so I asked Mr. Momi if I could paint the garage. Of course he said "sure....what color are you going to paint it?" Little did he know! Our "across the street neighbors" must now think we are a little on the wild side since our garage has fabulous blocks of colors in shades of blue, red, pink, & white. Anyhow, I knew that it was the absolute best place for a photography studio because despite the fact that we never use our garage...during the day it becomes completely sundrenched if the doors are open. Alas...Victory....My high key pictures have been achieved & all it took was a paint roller, some primer, manual mode on my camera, & a little bit of determination.

Feast your eyes on the next to be released Momi boutique design: Thursday July 30

Happy Momi shopping!!

* * SALE @ Pink momi * *

I am feeding my obsession & making an unnecessay trip to my local fabric shop today. My house has slowly turned into a fabric store of it's own so I have made Mr. Momi start to rearrange & get the sweltering shop in order....why is it that my husband is SOO much better at doing an outstanding job than I, when it comes to cleaning/getting rooms in order. I know a few people have requested to see pics of my lovely sewing area...however, when my daughter comes into my room & says.."that's a pretty mess" & I'm not sure if she's trying to tell me "that's a pretty dress" or my shop is really "a Pretty mess"....So, I'm going to hold off on those pics until she either learns to say the word dress or the "rearranging" is complete!
On a side note,
I have marked down almost all OOAK Ready to Ships in my pink momi shop!
If you "Follow" my blog you will also receive Free shipping on all Pink Momi "SALE" items. (shipping refund will be given after purchase. Please do not message me before purchase for a private listing because I do not want to be to blame if your item sells before I get around to setting up the listing) I have a fun idea for Pink Momi so I want to get the OOAK's cleared out of my shop :)
I have listed a few new designs in Momi boutique last evening...starting the Fall collections slowly. Since I have not done a pre-order on the Lydia designs...anyone who is a blog follower will receive free shipping on your entire order when you purchase any of the Lydia pieces.
(shipping refund will be issued after purchase)

Did I really just tell you yesterday that I would not be releasing fall for quite awhile? I take it back! After another downpour last night the warm breeze that I spoke so highly of was non existent & it set the mood for the release of a few Fall transitional designs. You may want to take a look in my etsy shop for the lastest in fabulousness...http://momiboutique.etsy.com.

I must admit...I have been hording & keeping this set a secret for quite awhile...when I say quite awhile imagine a time frame of about 2.5 weeks!

You will also receive FREE SHIPPING with the purchase of Metro or Lotus Momi ruffle bottoms. Please message me through etsy after your purchase so that I can set up your private listing for coordinating pants!

I have a few Fall tricks up my sleeve, however, I am not sure at this point what the preview date will be on these new designs. Since it finally just got warm here in PA....I am in no mood for fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving, & Christmas! We are thoroughly enjoying the nice warm breeze & hoping it never goes away! However, be sure to check Momi boutique often ...as I will be listing a few new pieces & a few oldie but goodie designs!
Speaking of which...here is a DANGEROUSLY cute Halloween design from the past. Lily did a superb modeling job at the young age of just 1 1/2...save my soul...the girl is going to look 25 when she is 16 & even the white fence makes me miss Hawaii oh so much!

P.S. This design will be appearing in my etsy shop when the time is right. However, you can message me if you would like to reserve one for your own! (very limited available)
