Lately I've been going to the river more and more and I think it's only going to get worse from here because I just got back from vacationing in Florida where I went to the beach everyday. But its still a lot of fun!
Schools over and I'm finally finished unpacking everything! I have a lot to talk about especially with school projects involving fashion, but I'm just going to take it day by day with posting. First I want to talk about two new bags I got while I was at college. They are perfect for summer and aren't too big which is another plus.
For one of my fashion classes last week we made a paper doll and some outfits. One design being a more traditional type of fabric, and the others being something made out of non-traditional materials like beads, cotton balls, or just whatever you can make an outfit out of. I used the fabric of an old sequin shirt for my traditional fabric, and for my non-traditional I used beads, thread, and feathers. Here are some pictures below.
Now this week in class we're doing stuff for New York Fashion Week! I'll make a post about that tomorrow because I'm going to get started on doing my traditional "favorite shoes for F/W" and not just from this season but from any season I find shoes from that I love! :)
Currently working on a shirt for Apparel class, its due on Wednesday so hopefully I'll be done by then but first here is Saturday's outfit post, I've been in comfy pajamas all day sewing today and its honestly really mind blowing how long it takes to make a simple shirt. Seamstresses must be really bitchy or just super patient because I know this crap takes me hours upon hours to do and I end up in a horrible mood, with barely anything done! I still have sleeves, a collar, and a button placket to do all in just two days. Looks like it'll be a couple of sleepless all-nighters! So anyway, Saturdays outfit.
This bracelet found on my shopping trip Saturday only cost $1 at Goodwill! I was freaking shocked when I found it, it was right next to the cash register so I wouldn't say this was an impulse buy. I've been looking for studded leather bracelets everywhere that don't cost as much as my car like the one Hermes created, which is beautifully designed, and also the original.
And last, my new Big Buddah bag! I didn't use it with this outfit but I just bought it and this was a great find at a local Plato's Closet here by my college and I checked online and this bag retails for about $100 but I only paid $25 for it! :)
