Last Fall, a couple of friends and I got the privilege to meet Tim Gunn. You may know him as the mentor/co-host of Project Runway, but he is also the Creative Director of Liz Claiborne Inc. If you watch the show he acts the exact same way, and is so much taller in person. He told us we were the prettiest girls he saw all day….oh Tim.  Just to let you know if you ever hear me say or write “carry on” or “make it work,” I got it from him.

I’m working on my next project. It’s taking a long time, but I’m almost done. I’ll post pictures soon!

Let your style speak.xo.

my. first. piece.

I’m in the beginning stages of learning how to sew and design. Just to let you know they make it look so easy on TV and in the movies. Didn’t realize how hard it was until I had to hand stitch the zipper in. That was a nightmare.

For now it’s just a hobby, but who knows maybe a career someday. I’d name the line something like the Laura Renee collection, sounds good right? After long hours with my teacher aka mom, and fighting with the sewing machine I made my first skirt. It’s not perfect, & a little short, but I love it. Enjoy!

Lady Gaga

2010 belongs to Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta aka Lady Gaga. Shes an amazing artist, creative director of Polaroid, stylist, dancer, song writer, designer, performer, and the list goes on. If you really think about it, what can Lady Gaga not do?

I know what your thinking, why would I like her, shes crazy, weird, and has no morals, but hey not everyone has the courage to do what she does. Shes inspiring designers to think outside the box, and challenging fashion. Since I’m a new designer, she has been a true inspiration for me. So thank you Lady Gaga for gracing us with your chic and out there style.  Here are some outfits I do like….

Have you seen her Telephone Video with Beyonce??? I’m hesitant to post it on my blog, so here’s the link on youtube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EVBsypHzF3U

So tell me….Do you love or hate her? and why?

Let your style speak.xo.
