No project to display today, just a random little blog.
I've been pretty busy procrastinating all my school work. I've got a paper to write on the situational/swot analysis of a retail brand.
I got a speeding ticket on my way to some interviews (I GOT THE JOB!)...
And there's this one random girl who has been annoying the heck out of me... (She all up in my BIIIIZ)
So... hopefully I'll have something to share soon. But for now, this will have to suffice.
MWAH MWAH MWAH!

Oh I have been having a fun time, though. I've been able to hang out with people that I haven't been able to in a looooong time. I absolutely love my friends and I miss them very much.
ANNNNDDD! I'M GOING TO NY AFTER MY INTERNSHIP IS OVER! WOOOOT WOOOOT!

And then after about 6 hours of hard work, I had a dress! This isn't the most flattering picture ever, but it does look nice in person.
The back looks crooked in this picture, but that's because of the way I'm standing. However, if you're up close to it, there ARE a lot of mistakes. But it was my first time attempting this, so voila! (p.s. ignore the bra strap)
Lastly, this is what I would call my attempt at taking a fun picture to spice up my blog a little bit :)
And then just a plain ol' cute picture. haha maybe one day, I'll make an outfit inspired by a rubik's cube! (hmm.....)

Well! I have off this weekend, so maybe I can come up with something good!!! (I hope so, at least)

added a brim:
I crocheted a huge flower but haven't attached it yet. 1) because I'm still deciding if its too much or not... 2) because my mom stole the hat and wore it, and now she doesn't remember what she did with it. I'll get a picture up soon.
I found it! haha my mom had somehow not remembered she took the hat upstairs??? Here's what the hat looks like with the flower on it... not sure if i'm going to actually attach it or not.

The reason this shirt is a reject. Funny fact: Its impossible to heat transfer backwards... its a 55 upside down. lol
The pattern, sorta. Its a paper grocery bag, and it wasn't wide enough to draw the flare I wanted, so I was going to free-hand it. Turns out I didn't have enough fabric anyway.
The finished product!
The back... haha.

Its such a lovely idea! I actually had a men's golf polo that's a really pretty summer yellow color, but I think I'm going to make a babydoll dress or something out of it because its got this fancy texture to it (probably for wicking). So this project will do for now, and I love the idea of turning t-shirts into "yarn". Gotta go pick out my materials! I'll post it when I'm done.
p.s. I GOT MY INTERNSHIP WITH TARGET!!! I am OH so excited about it!
Couldn't really find a cute t-shirt I wanted to try this on, so I just used a regular green t-shirt. Also, I couldn't find a crochet needle anywhere in my house for the life of me so I used a latch-hook needle instead, and I actually found it a lot easier! So in the spirit of youtube, I made a video for youtube as well with my finished product! I also took a picture while I was doing it and I'll post that, because you can't really see the details in the video.
That felt a little ridiculous. haha

hopefully I'll get some ideas soon.
TODAY IS MICHOLE'S (my youngest sister's) PROM!!!
On her high school income budget, she was trying not to spend too much money. Especially since the tickets were pretty pricey. So she did her own nails, I did her hair in a curly updo and we tried to scrounge up some jewelry.
Her ears aren't peirced, so she had some clip on earrings that were my mom's from a really long time ago. They had a matching necklace (both were pearls). However, the earrings were like a bunch of pearls clustered into a weird shape rather than just one pearl for each ear. It looked a little older than what she would want to wear, so I added some bobby pins to them and VOILA! A cute little hairpiece!

So this shirt has been reused twice! how cool is that?
The second shirt was an XXL men's (unworn) softball t-shirt. I just used this for the lining. It was big enough to make the suit double lined. I also took the padding out of one of my old swimsuits so the top is super super lined! haha

I'm thinking thise weekend I'm going to make a new layout for this blog so its not so boring and default-ish.
Here's the story:
I bought an awesome new pair of sunglasses right before I quit Dillard's (had to get my use out of my employee discount!). They're like aviators with orange metal trim. WELL, I decided I wanted a swimsuit to match it, but you know swim suits at this time of the year are like 80 dollars for the top and 80 for the bottom... I tried discount retailers, but couldn't seem to find the right color.
So I searched my closet, and found a shirt that I had never worn. Its actually a cool story how I found it, too. I was looking for some vintage clothing ideas maybe a year ago online, and came across this awesome blog that these three girls had made. They found clothes, and sold them through their blog. Of course, being the impulse buyer I am, and trusting paypal, I bought two items. One of them was this cute orange and black dress/tunic. Of course, once it got here, it wasn't nearly as flattering on me as it was on the girls, so it found a home in my closet, and I've forgotten about it until now.
(although I could have sworn this wasn't the picture I saw when I bought it... oh well, bad memory I guess)
Their website was called bamboostereo.blogspot.com, but they've recently been working on new projects and upgraded their site to projectmuffstit.com You should check it out because all their stuff is really awesome! Its good inspiration for new ideas as well.
So anyway, I used this, and an old men's orange softball t-shirt (sweat-free because its never been worn. It was just leftover from my mom's screen printing business) and got to work! Of course I probably won't be able to wear it in the water, but just for hanging out in the sun, I think it'll be cute.
I'm almost done, and I think it will turn out well enough. I'll post the pictures when I'm done. I just figured I'd go ahead and post the blog now because I haven't in a while.
P.S. I HAVE AN INTERVIEW TODAY! WISH ME LUCK!

On any other note, I've been extremely busy. I feel like there is hardly any time for anything but school and work. I'll even plan to have a day where I'm going to do something creative, but it either gets interrupted by homework or naps because I'm so exhausted.
My boyfriend got accepted to teach English in China next year. So he'll be gone doing that for a year. I'm really excited for this opportunity, but of course I'll miss him. I'm not too worried about it, though. I definitely know how to keep myself busy, and it will probably be good for me as it will be my last year of school, I'll be able to concentrate.
So that's a bit of an update for now. Hopefully I'll get some stuff up here soon!

We did the show on a Friday night, as well as a Saturday night. That's why the hair-dos are different. :)
So I'm new to sewing, but I've decided I'm going to show my work in a blog. Maybe one day if I get good enough I'll start selling it... but for now, I think I'm content with just getting people's feedback and seeing what they think. :)
I just got a sewing machine for Christmas. However, I'm extremely busy. I've only been able to really do a few projects since I got my sewing machine. The Consumer, Apparel, and Retail Studies organization at school (I attend UNCG, btw) just put on a fashion show and I designed a dress for the show. That's my main big project.
So hopefully with this blog, I can get a little feedback on my work, and maybe give you guys some ideas/inspiration for your own work!
Thanks for reading!
