Happy Thanksgiving Everyone

Thursday, November 26, 2009

I am thankful for:
I feel so blessed to be surrounded by such wonderful people.  I am really lucky to have them.  I am also thankful to be where I am in life.  I am thankful for my home and having a nice, quiet place to come back to on holidays such as this one.  I am thankful for being able to attend college in this economy and especially thankful for being a fashion design major.  Nothing is perfect but I feel very content with where I am and where I am heading.  Most of all, I am thankful for God and how I always turn to Him and He is always listening.
Thank You for giving me life.....and not just any life----MY life.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone,
Love from the blogger---Jules

Playlist #2: The Break Up (etc. and beyond)

Sunday, November 22, 2009

I know studies show that listening to depressing music while you are feeling bad only makes it worse and that you should listen to happy music to lift your spirits.......but quite frankly, when I'm down, let me be down.  I'll eventually bring myself to my senses but let me have my break down.  With that said, if you are dealing with a breakup or any other kind of complicated situation involving a significant other who has added more unnecessary stress to your already crazy life...........(deep breath), here are some songs that are fit the occasion.

1.  "24 Hours" - The Noisettes
2.  "Tymps" - Fiona Apple
3.  "Won't Go Home Without You" - Maroon 5
4.  "Didn't I See This Movie" - Next to Normal
5.  "This Is Such a Pity" - Weezer
6.  "You Can't Break a Broken Heart" - Kate Voegele
7.  "Still Hurting" - Last Five Years 
8.  "Hero" - Regina Spektor
9.  "Come Round Soon" - Sara Bareilles
10. "Without You" - Rent
**Bonus** : "7 Things" -  Miley Cyrus (just kidding.....kind of)

Spring RTW 2010

Thursday, November 19, 2009
Have you seen Balmain's 2010 Spring RTW?  It is what I call "distressed glamour".  Chic and Sassy and altogether beautiful fabrics and colors.

To see the rest of the collection: Balmain Spring 2010 Ready-to-Wear

I am using these 3 specific dresses as inspiration for my garment that will be on the runway for "Project Rockwell" at the end of the semester.  I am very excited!

November 20th: The Day We've All Been Waiting For

Tuesday, November 17, 2009

Yes, I am another one of those "Twilight Nerds".  I began reading the series my junior year of high school and danced with pure and utter happiness when I discovered a movie was in-the-making.  I already knew it would be a huge hit among the teens and up but who knew even the moms and pops would love it too!  I was first introduced to the series by my neighbor who is in her forties.  Enthralled by the dangerously romantic story along with Edward's bad boy vibe, she highly highly recommended it.  There is something about Stephanie Meyer's whimsical story-telling that attracts readers in hopes of scoring their very own Edward Cullen.  I am quite guilty of it myself.

Now, the moment we "Twi-hards" have all been waiting for---the release of the second installment to the Twilight Saga: New Moon.  I can hardly believe the time has already come and I am glad it is finally here.  Not only is New Moon my favorite book out of the series, but I am also curious to see the talented Dakota Fanning take on the role of the dangerous, Jane, ranked high of the Volturi.  New Moon, with all its hype, seems to carry the potential to top Twilight.  With even more romance, action, and let's face it....eight packs, it is bound to woo the adoring fans and their expectations.

make me an angel

Thursday, November 12, 2009

Who else is excited for the Victoria's Secret runway show?!  I get fired up every year to watch the gorgeous girls and the b-e-a-utiful wings that I wish I could purchase and prance around in for fun.  I'm lame, I know.  The lingerie is so pretty and it is very entertaining to watch.  Okay, so we obviously envy the super long, lean, and immaculate Angels.  Even though I start analyzing my own body and ask myself "Why can't I be tall like a VS model and get all the boys?", I still can't help but watch it!  I even record it and watch it over and over again.  Confession: After watching last year's show 3 times, my good friend and I strapped on some heels and pranced around her house in our not-so-cool undergarments pretending to be VS runway models.  Now that I'm embarrassed by that last statement, I am leaving. Adieu.

Save Luella and the rest of the world

The quirky British fashion label, Luella, ceased trading after the producer, Carla Carini, unexpectedly closed last month and the ss10 line could not fulfill its orders.  Luella Bartley won British Fashion Awards' Designer of the Year last year and has been worn by several celebrities such as Kate Moss and Alexa Chung.  Luella is a a British fashion favorite, which is why it saddens me to see such a unique line fall.  This recession is the most horrible thing to happen to our generation.  Families losing their jobs and houses, students dropping out of college due to not being able to afford it, scholarships not being given out as frequently, and dreams are being crushed due to lack of money to support them.  I can't even explain how much it saddens me we must witness this.  I want to save Luella as much as the next fashionable fan, but I also want to save the rest of this world.  Not only is Luella hurting, but  many other designers as well.  If Luella is one of the first to go, well, it won't stop there.  Next it will be an even bigger label like Dior (I have no sources on that, I'm just using an example).    I mean, Conde Nast just closed numerous magazines--Elle Girl--being one of them. I just hope and pray that we will pull ourselves out of this recession and things will soon start looking up.  *Finger crossed*

God Bless,
