Walking the Runway!

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!

Do You Have What it Takes?

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?

Challenge: 5 easy pieces, that coordinate to be worn on a weekend trip. Pieces must be able to easily convert from day to night and be suitable for your destination.

The Result...

Sorry for the poor quality picture, its from my phone.

Nail Polish of the Week: Laced Up

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.
