Zooey Deschanel

I love her style.  She is so cute and simple; nothing like sticking to the basics in this cute ensemble.  I like how her eyes match her dress too.  I will have to post more later.  I have an incredibly busy week.

Celapiu on Etsy (The Most Creative Knit Scarves)

I was surfing the web (as usual) and found this amazing Etsy site.  Celapiu is a Polish knitwear label that specializes in winter accessories.  I first saw the hip-hop knit chain scarf and fell in love!  All of their creations are so much fun and creative.  For these incredibly unique pieces, I think the prices are appropriate and completely worth it.

Jeremy Scott Fall 2009 (Button Bustier)

I know, I am posting from way back when.  I recently saw an old picture of Leigh Lezark in this adorable button bustier and had to find who made it.  Turns out that Jeremy Scott, one of my favorite designers made this for his fall 2009 collection.  I really like how simple it is, but at the same time it must have been a pain to make and fit all of the buttons on so perfectly.  I got the pictures at the bottom from Elle.com.  I hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Kate Winslet in Jenny Packham

I absolutely fell in love with this dress when I first saw it.  My obsession with it may have to do with the fact that it is so sparkly.  It is a little low cut and would look just as good if the V was not so wide.  Though, she looks so great.  I will post more tomorrow, it has been the usual very busy week and I need sleep.  Nighty Night!

Upcoming Project.....

Wow, I know I always say I am busy and it is really the truth.  I wake up early in the morning to go to school and never fail to make it home really late, either from school or work.  This semester at school I am taking a draping class.  Overall, I like it even if it is pretty intense.  One of our projects this semester is to make a garment (top and bottom) that has darts and several other requirements.  Mine is a simple dress, with a deep V in the back and of course it has to be complimented with a massive bow.  I am quite excited to make it, and am planning to do most of the work for it over spring break in two weeks.  I just do not know about the color yet...... My sketch is below.  The left is the back and right is the front.

Maddie on things.com

I realized that all of you fashionistas may need a break from all of the fashion week madness and maybe a look at something random and oddly inspiring, but adorable at the same time.  I found this site on the nylon blog, and am completely amused.  A dog named Maddie is photographed while standing on different objects.  The dog is adorable and the pictures interesting, entertaining, odd and a bit funny.  I love creative people and the things they bring to society.  I hope you are entertained as I was.

Badgley Mischka Fall 2012

Badgley Mischka never disappoints!  This collection is absolutely gorgeous and includes the usual beautifully constructed gowns, better yet they sparkle and shine.  I love this line compared to the rest so far.  I said the other day I was disappointed in the drab colors of this season, I do however love Badgely Mischka's use of dark colors and how they added sparkle.  The hidden and little details in their designs are always placed perfectly and in a way that compliments the models figures.  I also love the hair and make-up, so dark, and mysterious, which is my favorite.
-I wish I could see this dress up close, it looks so detailed. 
 -Love the shoulder detail
-Look very close.  Do you see the side outline and hand?  Love it, so creative.
