Me and My Sister

Hello, this is me on the left and my sister on the right. We are twins, and we got these done around our 21st birthday. This is my favorite one!
Well yesterday I went to a fashion show at Irvine Spectrum. It was so much fun! I have only really watched runway shows on and this was so much fun to be there in real life. I kept feeling like I wanted to pinch myself to make sure I wasn't dreaming. I went with a friend who I have not seen in ages, so it was nice to meet up with her.
Tomorrow is back to school for me and hopefully I can start sewing my garment instead of endlessly trying to fit it. But I am enjoying the experience of learning. I love the process of putting together a garment. I am artistic and analytical. I am also a perfectionist. That is a blessing and curse. I'll see you later! Bye!

French Quiz Tonight, Eek!

Tonight, I have a French quiz and I am a little nervous about it. Last time I was nervous about the oral presentation now I am a little worried about the written part and not really that worried about the oral part. Yesterday I also had to work which was a nice surprise. I worked on Monday night, but before that I had not been working for two whole weeks. Well that's it for today.

Sorry that I have not been blogging lately. I have been very busy with school. I am taking a class where I have to take pictures on my digital camera. The picture to the left is one picture I took when the sun was setting. I love the colors and the way the colors are reflected off the sun's rays. I could look at this picture forever.

Plus, I have been following up on fashion week which is now in London. So far my favorite fashion designers collections are Antonio Berardi, Vivienne Westwood's Red Label, and Matthew Williamson. I just love British designer's creativity and ingenuity. Oh yeah I also love Temperley London's collection in spring. It reminds of the circus. My most recent set on Polyvore has that kind of theme to it.

Morning Photo

Well, today I will be taking photos at the beach. The last photo assignment that my teacher made I had a really hard time with because the inspiration was just not there. But since this is landscape I have loads of inspiration to work with. Well that's it for today. See you later.
Plus, I love this photo because I love the sun in the background of the model highlighting the shape and the action that the model is making.

New York Fashion Week Spring 2010 RTW

New York Fashion Week Spring 2010 RTW
I think this is some of the photos for this season. I am not sure. Well anyway, this collection is by Vivienne Tam, one of my favorite fashion designers. Love her floral, girly, bohemian style. Other designers I liked this season were ADAM, Richard Chai, Altuzarra, Carlos Miele, Diane von Furstenberg, Reem Acra, L.A.M.B., Luca Luca, Monique Lhuillier, Ports 1961, and Rachel Comey. I loved them because they were all that I described above in the Vivienne Tam but some of them were rock chic like for example L.A.M.B. which is carried over from Fall 2009. I like that style also, but my favorite is this season always. Other than this, I went to school for sewing class and learned how to alter a pattern to fit my size. I do not have a supermodels body (thank goodness). Plus, today was cooler than the previous days. Well I'll see you later.

Frustrated and Fashion Week

Yesterday, I went job hunting and so far it's been ok. We went to Irvine Spectrum and I picked up several applications from there including some from H+M and Anthropologie. I think that the one with Anthropologie will turn out better because they were looking for people. Plus, I did more sewing on my sister's shirt. It looks pretty good actually. I hope I can keep it that way. Plus, I did some homework.
Mom was being controlling again with my job hunt. Also, last night she said, "I get this feeling that you don't want a job." That made me frustrated because I do want a job, I am just not like her. This morning she said she was sorry that she said that. She's still my mom and she's just worried about me. Well it's sunday and tomorrow is back to school. I'll see you later. Oh yeah plus it is fashion week. Yay! I am trying to keep up on that. Plus, I'll try to put up some of my favorite looks. See you later!

Busy and Tired

I have been very busy lately with school and just life in general. Monday, I went to a bbq at a friend's house and that was fun. Since I am now 21, the thought of I could have a drink was just novel. Tuesday was back to school and I had a french assessment quiz that day. It included a dialogue which I was nervous about I evidently did pretty well.
Also, I did some shopping and got this book called "ID's favorite Fashion Designers.' I love it because it tells the stories of how these designers started, and that helps me figure out how to get started for myself. I started back on my sister's shirt. I decided to skip the drawstrings because they were basically ruined after playing with for so long. I will just add something else that is pre-made to take the place of the drawstring.
Today, is photography class and we get to see a slideshow of pictures that people have taken for the first project. That includes me and my moms. I am looking forward to that. Plus, I am a little tired. Oh, before I go, I have decided that I am going to quit Hallmark and look for another job that gives me more hours. I pray to God that that will be done. Well I'll see you later.

Down Day

Yesterday was a much better day emotionally than monday. In French class, I receieved an assignment that states that I have to do a discussion in French with a partner. At first I thought we had to do it this Thursday, but then realized that it is next Tuesday, so I have time to practice it. Well today is a down day for me. My bath is leaking so Gary our handyman might come today. I don't know.

Going with the Flow

Yesterday, I felt for some odd reason very anxious. I don't know why I felt that way. Oh well. I was just going through the motions and doing things that I need to do. I told mom about my idea about giving my two weeks notice at work. I'm ready to move on and focus on school right now. Today it is French and I need to think about how to plan the lab that goes with it. Because I thought I could do it only one day a week, but I was looking at the syllabus and I think I might have to do it more than one time a week because of whenever the assessment days are. Also it's very humid and hot because there is a hurricane coming up from Baja California. It will probably be more like a thunderstorm when it gets here hopefully. Well I'll see you tomorrow.
