my school shopping list

sadly i dont have allot of money so i invest in a few things per season to update my wardrobe. Every year its different. I just pick up on minor trends and pair them with basics. my fall shopping list includes...

  • knee (and thigh) high socks
  • odd colored bandannas 
  • sheer black button down (or sheer mateial to make my own)
  • large 90x90cm silk scarfs
  • rings (silver tone, ethnic, antique ect. and lots of them)
  • leather biker boots
  • flannel shirts
  • black chunky socks or legwarmers
  • wrist warmers (crochet by me)
I took some of my cues from prada, miu miu, acne and lamb this year.

busy busy busy

I am going to the School of Art and Design at Montgomery College. Its going to be a hectic year and i doubt if ill have time for much of anything. i have allot of projects in construction so watch out, baby, woo.

I've done a couple of little things here and there. Lately I've been obsessing over anything with eyes on it; jewelry, clothing, tattoos ... everything. It got so unbearable i had to do something. So I went to a charity thrift store and scoured the stuffed animal section until i found the perfect doll. Now the rest sort of sounds like a horror flick. i took the doll to my tool room and got some  pliers and i cut up her face and popped her little eyes out. Cute huh? Then i glued the eyes to some crackerjack poison rings (kinda like the one lady gaga had in paparazzi) and that was that; eyeball obsession temporarily satisfied haha.

the quest for focus again

When I design, my mind is constantly flipping and changing every shape and concept I think of. Its a habit you've got to flex. And just like muscle confusion you've gotta hit it all types of ways in-order to get results. You have to do the same with purpose. Product designers do it everyday. Unfortunately sometimes i lose that habit and i have to find it through fine art or illustration. So Im on my quest for my next design concept. I have to be super focused. I'll be using this week to warm up my left hand and get it going. Wish me luck!

Paper Proper

Lately ive noticed paper has been the source for allot of inspiration. Paper fashion has been around since the 60s and its easy to see why. Wether used as material or used to inspire everyday wear paper is a great way to freshen up your look. Pleats, origami folds and cut outs wouldn't be gracing your lovely figure if designers didn't look into paper for ideas.

Slowly slowly I'm finding my way to my personal style. its not really my taste that im working on but how much i can reflect myself. i just got my septum pierced last friday and i feel great! Yes i get allot of stares from children to strangers to my best friends but its fine. Its worth it no matter the scrutiny. Its always worth it.
