Black is back

This is from Halloween, me and my friend were paradise birds. I've been so busy with fashion school in the past few months, I forgot about my blog. First semester is a bit hard to keep up with, I have a lot of projects due this week but I think I can do it. So far we've been learning about making different skirts and blouses. I find that my pattern and sewing classes are the easiest for me, all my non-fashion related classes are hard. But, I'm super excited because Harry Potter is coming out in a few days, I've been re watching all the movies this week in preparation.




Outfit: Dress (that I wore as a top) from H&M, Brogues from Aldo, pants from dynamite, purse from Aldo.

I started applying for a few jobs today, like Banana Republic and H&M. I know that it would be a lot easier to find a job in a restaurant because I already have worked in one, but I really want experience in retail. Even though I need the money, I would barely mind working for free just to get some experience. Any tips? I'm feeling a bit discouraged because I feel like you already need experience in retail to get a job in one, but where do you start? When I went to Banana Republic with my resume, the manager said to apply online (which I already had), but when I had called the store prior, they told me that I had to come in person. I told him that, afterwards he asked for my name. I hope it's a good thing, because I've done a lot of research on their company and worked really hard on my cover letter.

Today I cut out my first official pattern on material, Friday we are going to start making a skirt. I'm really excited, I'll post a picture of the finished project. I hope it turns out well.

Yesterday I went to see Piranha at the movie theater. It's so disgusting! I was horrified, haha. I wouldn't recommend you go see it unless you like seeing thousands of people getting eaten alive by piranhas.



Aren't they just so stylish! I'm in love, I've been listening to them for a while now. Jeremy Scott loves them and designs clothes for their music videos and photo shoots. CL, the main singer, is very known for her crazy sunglasses and stylish outfits. Park Bom always wears minidresses or miniskirts, it's kind of her trademark. Minzy is younger then me! She was born in 1994, so she must be 16. They released 3 new music videos at once: Go Away, Can't Nobody and Clap ur Hands. I would definitely recommend you check them out. I don't like the Clap ur Hands song, but the others are good.

More more fashion.

Hey everyone, I wanted to do an outfit update. I'm wearing super comfortable black shorts from Winners with an H&M blouse and an Aldo purse. My sister came to visit me a few days ago and she wore my blouse and tied a knot in it (like I did in my picture). It's such a great idea. It's so long so I would always tuck it in my shorts or pants, but you know how it can make lumps or folds sometimes? I think I'm always going to wear it like this from now on. Every time I take outfit pictures I realize just how much I want a camera, so I can take proper photos.

I know it's been about a week since I last posted. I actually haven't been that busy, just a bit lazy, I didn't know what to write about. I just learned yesterday that there's a Holt Renfrew really close to my place! I really need to check it out, I'll probably do a post soon on that. I have this new school project and I need to interview someone in the fashion industry. I don't really have any contacts yet, so I was going to go to nice boutiques and ask people who work there. I know that you can rent a stylist at Holt Renfrew, so I might do that and interview her at the same time. Any ideas? My team was picked first to present our interview, so I only have 3 weeks to do it. I'll keep you posted, I would absolutely love to find someone important in the industry like a designer. In the time curfew I'm not very sure what I can do.

I just discovered a great site for shopping called Asos. It's European and the clothes kind of remind me of urban outfitters. I've found some great pieces, so I decided to share them with you. Actually I'm pretty sure I've been on this site before I just didn't remember the name. Have you ever bought anything there?


~ random update

I've been a lot more busy these days with school, but I like it. I love having things to do. If you didn't already know, I'm studying in fashion design, it's my first year. I've heard that about 1/3 or more of the students drop out or change programs the first year. I kind of wonder if that's true, I'm very sure I won't be one of them. There hasn't been anything new lately so I'm not very sure what to post about, but I'll think of something soon, after a bit of rest. I've started drawing with photoshop, it's pretty hard but it takes some getting used to. When I have anything decent I'll post it. So yes, a very random post, but I'll post something better soon!


Lanvin for H&M

Weird fact, did you know that H&M stands for Hennes & Mauritz? I seriously had no idea. You might have already hear the wonderful news that Lanvin is doing a collection for H&M this winter. I'm super excited to see what they'll come up with. I loved Lanvin's bold shapes for their fall 2010 collection. They used a lot of black, white, grey and beige with feathers and fur. I featured my favorite pieces of the collection above. It must be hard for more expensive brands to make commercial versions of their clothes.

Little update~
Sorry I haven't posted in 2 days, I'm been busy with school. This week was my first full week, and so far I love it! My Thursday and Friday are pretty intense because I have 7 and 8 hours of class, and I have to wake up at 8am both days. My pattern making classes are so much fun, I've always loved drawing graphs and stuff in math classes and it really helps. My textile class is getting more interesting, we have a big bag of textile samples that we get to examine and we have this huge project to do at home. I'm weird but I like homework, I love learning and I like having something to do. I probably won't be saying this during finals.
