This is my last day of school then I'll be free, FOOREVVER, Fooorevvver..foorevvver…foorever…(The Sandlot.) Haha. My photos were inspired by the movie, “Bright Star.” If you haven’t seen it yet I highly recommend it. The scenery and costume design in it are gorgeous! After seeing that movie I have definitely decided to move to Europe. I got my dress at a thrift store, but it was too long on me so I made the hem shorter. I also put a “V” shaped neckline in the back of it….I thought it gave it more character. I hope you like it, and Happy Summer!!
"Bright star, would I were stedfast as thou art--
Not in lone splendour hung aloft the night
And watching, with eternal lids apart,
Like nature's patient, sleepless Eremite,
The moving waters at their priestlike task
Of pure ablution round earth's human shores,
Or gazing on the new soft-fallen mask
Of snow upon the mountains and the moors--
No--yet still stedfast, still unchangeable,
Pillow'd upon my fair love's ripening breast,
To feel for ever its soft fall and swell,
Awake for ever in a sweet unrest,
Still, still to hear her tender-taken breath,
And so live ever--or else swoon to death."

Hey you guys. My mom and I went to Chicago and the beach this weekend for her Birthday, (Happy Birthday Mom, I love you!!) It was loads of fun! We walked all over the city…trust me, my legs are really feeling it right now….man alive I need to get in shape! Then today we went to the Indiana Dunes and just hung out building sand castles and taking photos. I realized how much I hate the sun….even with about a pound of sun block lathered on me I still felt like a potato chip burning in a deep-fat-fryer…but Hallelujah there was this one little cloud that covered the sun for about 30 seconds when I was taking photos and it felt like heaven!! Yep, I’m so moving to Seattle when I grow up! The beach was really crowded, I felt like an idiot going back and forth from my tripod…I’ve officially decided to stick with deserted fields from now on…the stares are just too much! Haha.
I didn’t have a swimsuit so I thought I’d make one. I stayed up all night trying to finish it before we left I amazingly got it done in the car. I made it out of a cotton sheet I got at Good will for 50c. I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out, but I think I’ll make a new one because it has a couple of kinks on it. That’s what I get for using boxer shorts as a pattern guide. Haha. Hope you guys had a good weekend!
P.S. BUBBLE GUM ICE-CREAM!!

Hey you guys. Since I can’t go out and take photos because of the weather I thought I’d show you some photos that inspire me.

Hey you guys! I feel so productive this week. I cleaned my room, finished a book I was reading, sewed two dresses, took photos, and most of all I updated my blog…all with 5 seconds to spare to save Batman from falling into a vat of acid…ok… so the last part is false…it was really Captain Marvel (SPHhh, like Batman needs anyone to save him.) Haha.
I made the dress I’m wearing out of chiffon…never doing that again. It frays way too much, but with a little help from my good friend Clear Fingernail Polish I survived. I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out. I hope you like it.

Hey you guys. Sorry for not posting lately. I’ve been busy with school, BLGH. Only 4 more weeks!! I can’t wait! I’m going to lock myself in my room and sew all day….you think I’m joking. Haha.
My BEST friend Haven came over a couple of weeks ago and I did a photo shoot with her. We ended up laughing the whole time…it was pretty bad, but loads of fun! She’s wearing a dress that I got at Goodwill. It’s a little long on me, but it fit her perfectly. Here are the photos, enjoy.
