Hand-Dyed

I made this purse for my Images on Fabric class at SCAD. It was my first time sewing leather and it's hard!

Now that it's summer, maybe I'll have the time to give this blog the makeover it needs.

Felting

I made this no-sew bag in my 3D Fibers class. I made it with a process called wet felting. You start with raw fiber, usually wool, that's already cleaned and dyed. You basically just lay it out in sheets, wet it with soap and water, and agitate it until the fibers bond together. I made this bag with no structural sewing. I only sewed on the buttons and some of the lace.

Here's the inside. I used plastic as a resist to make the pockets. None of it is sewn!

Savannah

Hello all! I've noticed that I've lost a lot of followers because of my lack of blogging, so if you are still reading this, I really appreciate it! I will continue blogging even if it's only every once in awhile, so keep following if you like my posts.

These are the first photos I've taken in Savannah where I go to school, so I don't have many. Even though Brett (my boyfriend) took them, taking them in public is still intimidating. I'm hoping I can improve so that I can keep this blog going. School always keeps me so busy that I rarely have time to call my parents and best friend back home, let alone take nice photos and write a blog post. I'm still working on a fibers degree at SCAD. If you happen to be thinking about SCAD as a possible school for you, don't be afraid to email me and ask me about it.

Dreamcatcher

My friend Jennifer gave me this dreamcatcher necklace back in fifth grade. People made fun of me for wearing it back then, but lately it's been making its way back into my outfits. I got a job at my favorite store, Free People! I've only done a little bit of training so far, but I think it will be fun. It's nice to dress like myself when I go to work instead of wearing Aeropostale clothes. I could wear this to work.

I got this dress back in the summertime at a Marshalls store. It was really cheap, I guess because nobody wants to buy a sweater dress in the summer. My boyfriend Brett took these pictures, aren't they nice?

School Starts Next Week

Hello all! Long time no post! I've been having a great summer, even though it's not nearly as good as being at school in Savannah. My boyfriend Brett came to visit and took some more photos of me. I got this Free People dress (originally $200 something) for $15 at Marshalls! Poor dress; nobody liked it because the straps were all tangled up on the hanger.

School starts next week for me. I can't wait to go back!

A Little 70's

I had a post saved about how I'm getting into flare jeans again, but why not show you some pictures to prove it? If you're around my age, you might be thinking, "flare jeans are so middle school!" Well, they're back. Now that we are so used to seeing skinny jeans everywhere, flare jeans actually seem stylish and different!

I started working at a store called Aeropostale this summer, and I actually like it more than I thought I would. I never shopped there before, but they actually have some very inexpensive, nice items, like these jeans for example! I can skip on their graphic tees, though.

Lucky Brand shoes, Aeropostale jeans, vintage blouse from Twin Hearts Vintage, Forever 21 sunglasses.

Here are some other examples of stylish ladies wearing their flares.

All that being said, super skinnies are still my favorite and will never be replaced!

Not a Dress!

I am just going to admit now that I wore this outfit awhile ago now, and just got around to posting it. I'm a slack-o blogger sometimes. And I'm not sure if anyone still reads my blog, but I started this for myself, so I will continue it for myself and whoever might still look at it.

This isn't a dress, but actually a romper! Found it in a Goodwill along with this belt awhile back.
