Summer Shoot

Outfit: Vintage sheer blouse, tan tube top,  American Apparel chiffon skirt, leather bow belt, and Jenni Kayne heels.

Yesterday a few of my friends and I decided to style outfits and have a photo shoot. This is my outfit that I styled using my friends cloths. It was hot as blazes out and the shoot took place on a roof deck but the photos turned out good and the scenery was gorgeous. I love the summer and what a more perfect time to get out side and take some photos.

Lovely Rolling Hills and America

God Bless America.

My colorful Nikes!

This is a really dreamy looking picture of clouds I took while cloud watching one day at camp.

That is the sun shining through the trees.

Oh Heyyy it me!!
I had the most wonderful time at camp this summer. I had a great cabin and made tons of new friends. The scenery was amazing and I left all of my stress back in the city. I can't wait till next summer.

My New Collection Designs/ Sketches

My Image: For my collection, which for the record is not even close to finished, you will see a lot of neutral colors. Also a lot of sheer and soft fabrics and edges. Going along with my love for contrast, I have created a line with a lot of tailored pieces that are paired with loose fitting pieces. The fabric covered buttons add a soft side to the collection along with the chiffon and silk fabrics.

1: This look almost makes me think of vampires although that is not my inspiration. The top is loose chiffon in the front and cotton in the back. The back tank underneath is a spandex and cotton compound and the skirt is silk.

2: This look a great example of the kind of tailored and loose contrast that I love, it is sort of a theme in my collection. The top is made of the same chiffon in look 1 but with out the cotton in the back. The dress is made if black silk.

3: This is what would be considered as a finale look. It consists of different fabrics mostly chiffon and silk. There is a tulle and silk bow in the back.

4: This look is yet again another example of tailored and loose, soft and edgy. The top is a white tailored blazer with back stitching and buttons. The skirt is a soft pink chiffon and has many layers.

5: The top is a thin knit sweater with black and silver woven into the grey. The skirt is made from the same silk as the fitted dress in look number 2.

This is my sketch book. I have had it for a few years and I have many drawings and creations in these pages. I got it for Christmas a few years ago from my aunt. This book contains the works of this collection.

Christian DIOR Spring and Summer FASHION SHOWWWWW!!!!!!

So, another designer I love, love, LOVE is Christian Dior. This is a fantastic line and doesn't fail to meet to highly set standards given the head designer, John Galliano, was fired in March. I love the soft colors that were chosen for this line and I think that they were strung throughout the line very nicely. These photos are from the Dior spring and summer 2011 fashion show in France.
