With summer coming so fast, the school year is coming to an end. And unfortunately, my Design and Merchandising II class is as well. I’ve learned a great deal about the world of fashion, and I am enthusiastic to pursue my dreams at FIDM sometime in the near future. Thank you Mrs. Woolsey for being such an amazing teacher!
With that said, I need to create my final post. Some of the latest and greatest in high fashion, The Met Gala.

Brooke Shields in Michael Kors
This particular event was a great chance for celebs to truly out do themselves. The flashy, the fabulous, the fantastic style.
Every girl dreams of the perfect wedding dress for their special day. I’ve recently found some lovely dresses for the new designer collections any girl would be lucky to own. Here are my personal favorites.
Amsale Daliah Dress- Blue Lable Collection $3000- $4700
Monique Lhuillier Spring 2012 Collection
Vera Wang- Spring 2011 Collection
Designing a dress made of paper, scotch tape, Hollister bags and grocery bags has proven to be its fair share of challenges. Many, many hours invested making those paper flowers, over 550 portions of paper were applied to the skirt. The top ripped multiple times, having to be reconstructed and the grocery bags ofter burned through from the heat of the glue gun. Nevertheless, the experience of creating this garment was one that was unforgettable! I’m anxious for begin my design for next years competition.
Considering I aspire to be a Stylist sometime in my life, one of my good friends gave me the challenge of finding her a day and night look for less than a hundred dollars for an occasion swiftly coming up. Of course I was excited for the challenge, and the fact that I could have my very first client! So here is the look I came up with:
The dress is from Charolette Russe for $24.99, as are the shoes sold for $32.50 and the cardigan can be found at Forever 21 for$19.80. These pieces together will create the day look.
The same dress can be worn for a night out with friends with the bright orange shoe to add a bit of color. The shoes can be purchased at Charolette Russe for $15 with the purchase for the other pair.
One of my favorite book series is Confessions of a Shopaholic, which is a great mix of humor, drama and (of course) lable dropping by the amazing main character Rebecca Blumewood. The writer of these fantastic books, Sophie Kinsella, has just written her sixth and final installment of the Shopaholic series. If you are into reader and/or fashion you must read this book!
And in 2009 the New York Times best seller became a Major Motion Picture, where Isla Fischer plaid the cunning shopaholic.
