Project Runway Tonight

November 14, 2007

Maybe this is why my Hub seems in a bad mood.    I will demand the big screen tonight! 

on Bravo, Season Premiere, Wed Nov 14, 10/9c.  For all things PR – check out this website/blog:  http://bloggingprojectrunway.blogspot.com/

Top 10 Reasons I enjoy this show:

10.  Outrageous personalities.    Such passion, talent, positive/negative, some are ‘real’ and some are just ‘way beyond my experience’.    I enjoy the middle of the show best, when we get to really know some of the players.    Near the end, I tend to want more fashion and less bickering and at the beginning, it’s almost too much just to get everyone and their designs displayed…   But I’m hooked, gotta watch!

9.   Eveyone gets the same ‘theme’ – and yet, widely different and amazing results.    PR showcases and defines individuality.

8.   Education – I learn so much about sewing, fashion, trends, etc.

7.   I adore Tim Gunn.    He’s a fairy Godfather?!    See this  NYDaily News article on why we love PR…   and a previous post of mine on how Tim is helping me with my closet…   also, here.

6.  Project Runway annoys my Hub.   Extremely.   If it was on ESPN, he might watch it.   Nah.    I should have him give his top 10 reasons he HATES the show…   

5.   Inspiration.   I have what my unmarried friends call ‘married woman’ style.    I’m still not sure what that means exactly but PR inspires me to be a little more wild in my clothing choices.   Be BOLD.

4.   Inspiration & motivation, some more!   I am inspired to learn to sew!  To make my own clothes ?! or even only to sew on missing buttons.

3.   Heide Klum fascinates me.    She is so beautiful and her attitude contributes to her image.   She has such an ‘I’m up to something’ smile, don’t cha think?

2.   Gives me a show of my very own to watch.   This gives definition to my week, a schedule, if you will.   I always know when it is Wednesday…   I little more exciting than knowing that Friday is Trash day.   Yea, I don’t have enough to do!   I realize that.

1.  TALENT!  and unique talent at that.   Not only do you have to be quickly creative, you have to have the sewing/construction skills to create the concepts.    Time limits, materials cost constraints – wow!  

I can’t wait!

Shoes

October 13, 2007

Something different, change of pace and topic!  Um, yes, a distraction.  🙂 

From cleaning out my closet (an ongoing theme, first here and then update here), I thought I would share my FAVORITE shoes!   and a few odd ball dresses s that I can’t seem to throw away but I NEVER wear, either…  

crazyshoes.jpg  These go with my orange dress that has little gold balls sown all over it!  100_4528.JPG

 snakeshoes.jpg These are HIGH for me and kill my feet;  I wear them every so often with a pant suit that looks pretty good, if I must say.   Which I must, since I just did.    

And for the dresses…   First, allow an explanation.  I love lobsters.   Have lots of lobsters on dish towels, plates, etc.   Mostly kitchen stuff.   But I do have a few cool items of clothing that feature lobsters, too.   And this dress, happens to be one of those finds that I couldn’t resist.    favedress.jpg   Tiny lime green lobsters and little white daisies embroidered ALL over it.    From Lilly Pulitzer…   Cost me just a few pennies.   But it is TOO short on me and really doesn’t flatter me.     So I don’t want to get rid of it.                                             

Finally, this thing dates me…  An 80s party dress.   baddress.jpg  NO, really, one of those pseudo garden party aka sorority RUSH parties!   It’s comfy, I’ll give it that.    Can’t seem to think of good reason to keep it but am reluctant to throw it into the rubbish pile.    Save it for another 50 years and it’ll be vintage?  laughable.   Is it even pretty?   I do love the colors…
