Project Runway New Season & My Journey to Become a Fashion Designer

3.1 phillip lim

MY PERSONAL JOURNEY - TO BECOME A FASHION DESIGNER

BEGINNING WITH PROJECT RUNWAY
I am so excited - Project Runway returns for Season 16 tonight!  This is probably one of my favorite shows.  I look forward to it each fall.  Last season, my favorite designer was Laurence - because of all of her leather work. I can’t wait to find out which of the designers becomes my top pick - and if they will make it to the finale.

Probably one of the reasons I enjoy Project Runway so much is because I have always been a very creative person - I am continually envisioning designs for clothing in my head; however, I never pursued fashion design until recently. For some reason in college, I did not go into fashion - and all of my jobs since have been in non-fashion fields.  It was only until recently that I started to explore the idea of fashion design.

FOLLOWING MY DREAMS

Save on Fall Trends - Leather Jacket & Sneakers

pantone fall 2017 colors



SHOP THE LOOKS
1. Necklace: Rebecca Minkoff // 2. Jacket: BB Dakota // 3. Shoulder Bag: H&M (Only $30)
4. Jeans: H&M // 5. Sneakers: H&M // 6. Necklace: Ariel Gordon
7. Jacket: BB Dakota // 8. Tote: Madewell
9. Jeans: RE/DONE // 10. Sneakers: Golden Goose

I am kind of in a slump - of finding the energy to write something engaging about my save vs. splurge outfit; however, I will say, I bought that "save" jacket - and I can't wait to wear it - possibly styled like the look above.  I can vouch that it is great quality - and does look a lot like leather - and I am pretty picky about faux leather.

So, instead of talking about the clothes - I will share what I made for dinner last night. I had an appointment after work - so I got home later than usual. I typically would either go to McDonald's or Five Guys after my appointment - because I love burgers and fries.  However, last night I decided to be a little healthier - and make pesto.  But, I was super tired after a long day - and did not want to be eating at 9:00 - so I set time limit for making it - and to my amazement, I got the whole meal made in 25 minutes - pesto from scratch - and everything.  If you are looking for the recipe - I shared it here.  I highly recommend it.  And, you can make extra pesto and freeze it - just don't add the cheese (add it later).  Now, after this amazing race of a dinner - my kitchen was another story - because typically I am a neat - clean as you go person - but there was not time for that.  So, everything was on the counter or in the sink.  I'll get to that later... [One last thing, on the same page as the recipe for pesto - is the quick and easy lava chocolate cake recipe - that is really good!]

3 Ways to Buy Designer Jeans Under $100



Designer jeans are very expensive - and definitely an investment.  Since I love the fit and quality of the designer jeans, I am always looking for ways to buy them for a lot less.  Today, I thought I would share a few ways I buy designer jeans for under $100.  And, sometimes even less than that.

1. OFF-PRICE / DISCOUNT SITES
I watch ("stalk") the off-price, discount sites like Nordstrom Rack, HauteLook, Saks Off Fifth and Last Call Neiman Marcus.  Between those four sites - I can always find discounted designer jeans.

I recently found a bunch of 7 For All Mankind Jeans marked down to $80!  There were so many to pick from - in all different colors and washes - like grey, black and blue jeans.

Also AG jeans are very popular - and there are great deals on those as well.
A few picks...

1. Which do you prefer - Pool, lake, or ocean?

Top Five "Hits & Misses" from #NSALE




There are only a few more days of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale - and then prices will go back up.

Since last week’s top five lists of my  “Hits and Misses” was so well received, I thought I would round up a few more of my top five hits and misses of the sale - since I think I have been continually ordering (and returning items) since the sale first launched.
