Birthday Dress Design

Apparently I am having a hankering for stripes this summer. I have always found it hard to find the right size stripes that don't make me feel wide. I feel like mixing it with a floral print like the first dress below is a cute way to go (and Modcloth styled it amazingly here. I want the whole outfit!). When I first saw the navy and white striped dress in the middle (Topshop) I just wanted it so badly! Unfortunately it's about 10 inches too short and one hundred dollars over my budget. So I decided I'd design a modest version for myself! I made the pattern, and sewed it all together and wore it to Winter Ball on my birthday.

Have a good day! It's almost Friday!

Our first Styling job!

Back in December/November, a new and good friend of mine, Sheyanne from The Retro Renegade, got to style a shoot together! I was asked by jay Merryweather, a professor here if we would like to style this shoot for his digital tools class project. Only catch was that we had to use our own clothes. So my shoes were too for Sorelle our lovely model, but our clothes actually fit well! I hope Sheyanne and I will get to work on more protects together before she leaves on her mission! She is very talented and aspires to be in the fashion world as well. Ah finally someone who gets it out here. Check out her blog!

Back to Black

Well I took a break from basically all internet for a month (except Instagram) and have been focusing on my school and clothing lines. I didn't feel like I had much inspiration for anything until I just got outside and tried out the new camera. I am having so much fun relearning manual camera skills. Everyone always makes resolutions the beginning of a new year but I just picture small goals. This is our last year in Hawaii and with the acquisition if this camera I'm so ready to explore and document our fun findings on the island of Oahu. Here is to another year folks! Don't ever get bored of what's around you.
