Tonight, was the first time I had a dress I designed walk the runway! My final pattern making project walked in Hemline's fashion show and it won 1st place out of the Junior class designs!
I have a video, and a few more pictures, but they're on a different camera so they'll get up another time. I'm currently getting ready for the move to NYC!

I just got an email with this flyer...
So it seems like the people over at Project Runway are getting ready to film a new season! Last weekend I was watching some reruns and I'm super excited for another season. While, I'm not apply for the upcoming season, one day I may decided to apply to the show, but at this point, there is still so much I need to learn before taking a shot at it. What about you? Anyone out there looking to apply?

So I finally got around to trying Sally Hansen Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips. I heard a lot of good things about these, many of the girls in my pattern making class had tried them and loved them. I wasn't sure at first because they cost $10 for a set and I could buy a new nail color for $8. But you can get some pretty cool designs that you wouldn't be able to achieve with polish, so thats where I decided to go ahead and get some polish strips.
The stickers took me a few tries to get used to before getting the hang of it, I probably should have watched the video on the Sally Hansen website. I even decided to time myself, I think I ended up taking about 30 minutes to put them on. I heard other people only took them like 5 minutes. None the less, they were still a lot quicker than when I paint my nails.
The nails lasted me about 6 days, on the last day I had my interview for my internship, so I was plenty nervous and started picking at them. They probably would have lasted a little while longer had I not gotten nervous.
I would probably do these again, but I would only do the prints, I wouldn't pay for the solid colored ones.
