If you were hoping my posting rate would speed up once school was taken out of the equation, no such luck. I'm going out of town from now until the first week of august, and the chance of my being able to blog is slim to none.
So when I come back expect a brand new layout, legit posts, and loads of back-to-school-sewing.

See you in August!

1 dress 365 days

I came across the Uniform Project while surfing the net last night, and I love the idea. Below is how the woman who started this project describes it. I think that having such a limit as to what you can wear encourages creativity to flourish. I've never had school uniforms but I think that it would be interesting to see how I would make a uniform my own with only accessories.

Starting May 2009, I have pledged to wear one dress for one year as an exercise in sustainable fashion. Here’s how it works: There are 7 identical dresses, one for each day of the week. Every day I will reinvent the dress with layers, accessories and all kinds of accouterments, the majority of which will be vintage, hand-made, or hand-me-down goodies. Think of it as wearing a daily uniform with enough creative license to make it look like I just crawled out of the Marquis de Sade's boudoir.

The Uniform Project is also a year-long fundraiser for the Akanksha Foundation, a grassroots movement that is revolutionizing education in India. At the end of the year, all contributions will go toward Akanksha’s School Project to fund uniforms and other educational expenses for slum children in India.

Schools Out For Summer!

{Photo source unknown}
Summer break started last Friday and so I'm free form the confines of high school for a few months, but I haven't had much time to just sit around, or blog. For the last week I've been going nonstop, coming home only to shower and sleep. And seeing as I'm not technically a legal driver yet my main form of transportation is my bike, and wow will I be super fit if I keep riding it this much...
I plan on starting to regularly post again. this week, so look out!

and honestly I apologize for not posting in over a month, and a great big thanks to all the people who bother to read this and comment.
and pictures of my recycled dress up tomorrowish!

Look all the stars aligned, or at least all the knockoff dresses aligned with my closet.

Forever21 vs. Built by Wendy

Before I give a few thousand excuses of why I haven't blogged in a month let's take a trip down memory lane to this post and this one too. We all know I love Built by Wendy and yellow and blue, and when you give it a Forever21 price tag and add more buttons, I am in major love. I ordered the denim dress online today, and the yellow one has magical disappeared from the site so I'm going to the mall to find it this weekend, cross your fingers it will be there.

Okay and on to why I have been a terrible blogger, I simple have been too busy with school, life, friends, everything and blogging has been my last priority. The musical is over so I am no longer spending 6 hours a day fixing armpit holes and doing stage make-up of lame-o actors and dancers. It was super fun and I am sad for all the seniors that are leaving. But it leaves me with otragouse amounts of free time and I'll be sure to use it well and blog more.

And some news about the last post! The recycled fashion show is this Thursday and I am going to take loads and loads of pictures and put them up here first thing. The other "designers" dresses are really, really cute and I hope mine measures up.

Also I am in the process of making a dress for myself out of olive green cotton knit, I'm not sure how it's going to turn out because I'm not using a pattern, but I kinda want to wear it this Friday so we'll see if I can get it done in time.

I'll be posting sometime this weekend!
EDIT: just kidding it'll be a while, I have a major project due, and am going away all of this weekend, soon I promise.

and sorry for the font size weirdness, I'm not sure what's going on with this...
