Thou Shall Not Haveth Chinese!

I had planned for today to be a “I will get some homework done!” kind of day but it turned out to be a “I’m gonna go spend my money on cardigans and fabric and then take pictures of pretty flowers and sweat it out with Zumba” day. It was also a day full of hope for motherfucking chinese food, only to find out my mom’s like THOU SHALL NOT HAVETH CHINESE and because I spent like $55 at Nordstrom Rack today plus the $180 I spent on that coat + a book on Amazon, I’m not about to pay for everyone’s dinner. Even though I would genuinely like to. Also, my dad’s back hurts pretty bad, so it’s not like he’s up for going out anyway.

So speaking of buying fabrics, my first stop today was Haberman’s in downtown Royal Oak. I got half a yard of this beautiful J. Crew orange with white polka dots silk charmeuse for the seam binding on my couture dress. I also picked some zippers cause they’re ridic cheap there. And I found really nice, thick silk for my draping final in the clearance section! Also, Haberman’s has some really nice employees. I wish Joann’s workers were that nice.

Yesterday I bought 2 yards each of cotton fabric from Joann’s in yellow with funky watermelon slices and dark mustard with what looks like graphic pictures of cotton all over. I plan on making circle or flare skirts for myself with both of them. I also picked up some Rit sunshine orange dye to dye some muslin strips like in this tutorial. I was originally going to get the red, but I’m attracted to yellows. I have a lot of things I want to do, and not enough time to do them. Life!

I still have to do my 8 page research paper for my psychology class and fix samples for couture. But I suppose if I used my time “wisely” I wouldn’t be worrying about either of these. Except that I’d rather enjoy my weekends doing what I like. You know?
