Take Me By The Tongue And I’ll Know You

Things I need to do in a semi-organized order of importance list:

Definitely finish that psych paper. ASAP.
– Finish my couture dress. And remember to insert tit cups before I sew the top to the bottom.
– Draft up my second skirt piece for Draping, cut shit out, sew shit together. Finish that shit. SHIT.
Get a fucking haircut.
– Figure out what I’m going to dress up as next Thursday, as well as on Halloween.
– Dye my hair again.
– Make circle skirts with the fabrics I bought 2 weeks ago.

I’m pretty sure college can give you ulcers. That’s uncool. Also, for whatever reason, while I know that I have A LOT to do for my fashion classes finals, I somehow feel like…it’s not that much. But it is. Maybe it’s the excitement starting to build with the realization that what I’m designing is fucking awesome. And I’m doing both finals in my size which means I can actually wear this stuff when I’m done! And that, my friends, is always a plus.

Unrelatedly, one of my somewhat friends at school told me about this awesome website called Zenni Optical where you can get prescription glasses for really cheap and I totally found a few pairs that I’m like I need this in my life. I spent just under $500 this year on my glasses and sunglasses. But they’re also designer…all the frames on Zenni are not, and therefore the frames are cheaper. So in essence, it would be like getting cheap glasses when I go to the eye doctor anyway. Except that I can get as many pairs as I want via this website. I just need to know my eyeball specs.

I have nothing conclusive to say other than Maroon 5’s Moves Like Jagger makes me dance.

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?
