Mumbo Jumbo

So I'm not sure anyone has even seen my blog. Which is fine. For now. I really don't have much up yet and my posts keep getting to be so verbose. =

However! Next on the line up is this book that I've found to be very helpful for fashion sketching. I went to National Portfolio day this [school] year and I got to talk to the FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology) admissions persons, who were honest, gracious and VERY helpful. They recommended the book (more like novel!) Illustrating Fashion: Concept to Creation, by Steven Stipelman. A whooping $57.28 (originally $72.50)!!! Which is a lot considering I have no income atm. Lately I've been trying to find clothes for less than $10... know of any places besides the salvation army or the garment district??

Luckily I was able to borrow it from the school library (after suggesting it to the librarians - apparently an interest in fashion design is on the rise at my school, who knew)... too bad they want it back after 2 months, I was hoping to keep it till the end of the year (selfish of me, yes? no?)

Unfortunately there are a lot of photos that I took that I have to sort through, so I'm going to have to save that for later.

Sorry, I'm going to have to find out how to not make it so pixely (advice?).
What I wore to school today - grey hollister sweater (yeah I know but I got it for cheap!), pink t-shirt I cut up into a tank top, spotty mint green delias 3/4 shirt, f21 while bubble skirt, white belt, express tights, and another grandmother's closet find - white kitten heel shoes! It was love at first sight, though too bad they have no traction on the bottom. I often joke that I can walk better in my 4" heels than these "almost flats".
Ahah and that would be my sister in the background (completely oblivious) <3>
