thank you for your love and support, it was all because of you!
(and i mean that quiet literally.)
i decided to enter the dress design for Shabby Apple dresses again.
to see my last year's designs click here.
i didn't make it to the top 15 last year but it's the journey that
counts, not the results right? if you don't win that is. hahaha
but seriously, there's nothing you lose by trying, you can only
gain experience and wisdom with every dream you pursue i believe.
like remember when i never made it to oprah's next t.v star? haha.
but the funny thing is, after i designed the dress, i've been seeing
the same designs everywhere! is it just me? like this michael kors
dress. a year after i designed it!
does he read my blog? haha jk, i highly doubt that.
but seriously...it's kind of weird, dont you think?
so here is my design for the contest. i think many of you are familiar...
what if i told you i made this dress from a long vintage skirt? click here to see the before transformation.
one of my very favorite photographer Jessica Peterson took these photographs.
you'll fall in love just like I have.
i mean who else can make my awkward brace-mouth look decent?
here are more detailed pictures of the pleated design.my inspiration for the design: this was actually a long vintage skirt(click to see the before)that's been transformed into a dress. i was just brainstorming on how touse this long skirt to use when i had a sudden idea. so i just went with it, and viola!
color and fabric: vintage white and silk.
