fashion cat

Ok, project runway was a re-run this week (big disappointment in my Thursday night!) Hopefully we will be on track for next week!

Here is a fun photo I found and I am posting this in honor of David. Fashion and cats...great!

Also, these I found on Etsy and I thought they were so fun and adorable! I wish blackey would sleep in one of these in the night. It would totally look neat/chic in our bedroom, but I am almost 100% sure blackey would still sleep in our bed :( David spoils him so bad!

Valentines for the kids!

I made these little valentines for my nephews and niece. I wanted to share, they turned out cute! My nephews are obsessed with Wii and we play mario cart over the internet. Ean (6) is always Mario and Evan (4) is always Luigi, so I personalized them that way! Emma (2) just likes girly things, so I chose Dora to put on her Valentine:


Season 7, Episode 6: A Little Bit of Fashion

This week the designers had to design outfits for little girls. It was so fun. I loved this episode. One of my favorites. Then there was a surprise, the next day they had to pull together a coordinating outfit for the a "grown up", which was the models. Here is my review!
{least favorite outfit award} designer, amy
 I don't know what amy was thinking, but this is just hilariously ugly. hahaha...better luck next time girl! "A" for trying to think outside the box and do something different.

{outfit I would wear award} designer, ben
 Love the colors, love the fit, love how they match. I would wear this :)

{beautifully constructed award} designer, seth
Awww, seth. How you are my favorite designer on the show. I am so glad you won. Congrats. You really deserved it. I thought it was adorable when the little girl said that her favorite part about the outfit was her purse. You really "got it" for this week. The mom's look is so modern, and the outfit was beautifully constructed! I love black and white together, I want you to win so I can buy your clothes. lol :)

{most creative award} designer, ben
This gets the most creative award because I think that ben was creative and did a perfect job with putting the mom and the daughter's outfit together. fantastic with the gray and black/red accents in both outfits. Sharp and polished. Love the flower in the girls hair!

{favorite designer award} designer, jay
I realized this week that Jay is a good designer. He has had some solid outfits these past weeks. So we will see how well he does. Good job Jay.

Project Runway Review (Episode 5, Run for cover)

This week was a good week of project runway! There was a lot of good designs. This week they had to design an outfit for Heidi Klum to wear on the cover of Marie Claire (april issue). Here were my thoughts:
{least favorite outfit award}designer, janeane marie
I really wish that she would have gone home. Last week and this week she had a terrible dress with ugly hems.

{favorite designer award} designer, anthony
I am so excited that Anthony won the challenge. His designs have been good and terrible. He is so funny on the show and makes me laugh so much. I am so proud of him and glad he won this challenge! His dress was beautiful.

Super bowl commercial

My favorite super bowl commercial:

To play click here:


I am a member of Modcloth's street team. We are called ModSquad. Here is our assignment we were supposed to do! Fun.

The first style question is sent by Carlee from Canada.
I am considering buying the Whirlwind of Wonder Frock for my grade nine farewell. I'm not looking for anything too dressy and I need a a suggestion for shoes to go with this dress. I don't want to wear heels, either flats or sandals, can you list some places to look for or colours that would work well?
By the way, I live in Canada so brands/stores from the States wont do. (Note ModStylists: we ship all over the world, so pay no heed to this!)

What I wrote and put together:
Hi Carlee from Canada!
I think this dress is perfect for your event. This dress would look best accessorized with pinks and golds I think!
Buy a few new things (earring, shoes, etc.) and you can also incorporate what you already have in your wardrobe in the pink and gold family. 
Do everything in gold and add one piece that is pink! It will really make your outfit stand out, but be totally adorable and relaxed all in one.

Project Runway Review (Episode 4, Design your heart out)

This week the designers had to use the Campbell nutrition logo/branding for a formal gala event. They also had to use "normal models". These "normal models" were everyday women that had some sort of heart disease through out their life. These women were fun to watch and it touched my heart <3 <3 <3.

As for the designs, they weren't my favorite. I didn't really like very many.  

{least favorite outfit award}designer, Janeane Marie
Ewww...that bubble hem is gross!

{outfit I would wear award} designer, Amy
{beautifully constructed award} designer, Jay Nicolas

{most creative award} designer, Mila
Love the graphic stars. Very nice!

{honorable mention award} designer, Ben
Not so sure about the gold color belt...but he pulled it together with the necklace and the shoes.

{favorite designer award} designer, Amy
She won the challenge this week. She totally deserved it. The past couple of weeks she has had really solid designs. She has got her head sewn-on-straight (pun, I am so funny :), and wants to do a really good job at every challenge. That shows. Keep up the good work and we will see you in the top hopefully!

Tuesday, February 2, 2010

As most of you know, I am a graphic designer. So of coarse I am going to be making my own valentines day cards. I was looking on line for inspiration, and I couldn't help pass these adorable images to you! Let's enjoy the sights of this holiday...even though it is kinda irrelevant, it is just a good excuse to eat chocolates and remind people that you love them in cute little ways:) That is just fun! Enjoy...
