Google review 2010


I’m still here!

I’ve been gone for awhile, but I’m making my return. Did you miss me? I hope so! During my absence, I finished another sewing class, completed a dress, and started a new bag. I wish I could have done more, but life gets in the way. I’ll post pictures as soon as possible. Speaking of pictures, I want a starter dslr camera, any suggestions?

On to the important stuff, Google recently launched a fashion/styling website. The Google God’s figured it would be easier to shop for everything in one place. This website has you scratching your head thinking “why didn’t I think of that.” Once again, Google has done it again. Check it out for yourself, and let me know what you think.

I’m a huge Target fan, and I’m not ashamed to buy clothes there. The past couple of years, Target has stepped up their fashion game and famous designers have launched inexpensive lines for the everyday woman. It’s about time they made affordable lines, not all of us can afford a $800 skirt. I mean we see collections from DVF, Marchesa, Vivienne Westwood, Chanel,and etc. only wishing we could afford anything from them. Now having some designs only a drive away is exciting and damaging to my bank account. I found a YouTube clip of Zac Posen (one of my favorite designers) showing off his new collection thats in stores now!

Can you believe hes only 29 years old, and I adore the 2 in 1 navy/black dress. My birthday is soon..hint hint. 🙂

Ps- I’m considering doing “How to…” tutorials on YouTube. I would do beauty, sewing, styling, cooking, and whatever I come up with. Should I do it?

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!

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.

I can accept the safari look, strong shoulders, homeless, and even the trucker hat, but I refuse to accept this. Shoes this high are only acceptable in one place….the streets. I hope the ladies didn’t hurt themselves walking down the runway, because I would have.
