Kid Robot

Hello Readers.
How is everyone? I hope your week has been well... I am planning on going to a estate sale in a little while but earlier this week I was doing some internet shopping and I went over to the kid robot site. I saw this cute hot dog pouch. They call them yummypockets pouch and I guess if you love hot dogs you would be pretty hungry.

It actually look really realistic, so would you want an un-messy hotdog floating around in your purse or would you just bypass this accessory? Is it a hit or miss?
Let me know. Have a great weekend.

My Dress Design for Shabby Apple Dresses.

We were assigned a project in one of my fashion design classes that correlated to an actual contest happening at Shabby Apple Dresses. I had  a lot of fun with this project and all the things it entailed. 

My Mood Board

 I was inspired by The Notebook and all of the great dresses that Rachel McAdams wore. The 1940s and all of the different styles that are still cute and tasteful are what I think of when I think Shabby Apple.

My Textiles

The colors are ones I saw that were forecasted for Spring 2011. I chose two knits, the blue-berry is an interlock and cloudy is a single jersey knit  that I thought would work well on the bodice parts of my dresses. For the wovens  I chose two prints, logan berry and butter, which are 100% cotton. Then I chose one solid, raspberry,  that  I thought would go well with the other prints.

I hope you enjoy my designs and let me know what you think.

Hello. I know I am a bit late blogging about the FYF Festival at the cornfield at the beginning of September, but I did attend with some of my bffs and I had a wonderful time listening to Dead Man's Bones and Cold Cave for the very first time. You would recognize Cold Cave from the Verizon commercial. Okay, so I should be blogging about accessories and that is just what I am about to do. I saw some very interesting things there and my favorite of the whole night was this dinosaur bag.

It is like the street version of the bag I blogged about here, from Giles Deacon. I actually love both versions of dinosaur bags...let me know what you. Do you like one better than the other or are dinosaurs just not for you? Have a great weekend!
