disappearing act

Something I’m very good at.

I’ve been preoccupied with my final project for my fashion sketching class.  I usually draw impatiently with lines in all the wrong places, so I’ve been trying extra hard to take my time and pay attention.  Well, that plus an obsessive personality equals trouble.  BIG trouble.  I’ve come to the conclusion that fashion croquis can cause more damage to a girl’s self esteem than any fashion model.  The avatar-esque proportions are ridiculous, but beautiful.  You can’t help but think, “Why aren’t my legs 6 heads long?!  Why isn’t my waist 3/4 head wide?!”  Because it just isn’t right.

The project is at a standstill as of the moment.  I put on my Junya dress for inspiration.  It’s a piece of artwork and I feel like a million bucks when I wear it.  Maybe I should wear it while I sketch?

    a piece of artwork, indeed. i fully advocate wearing it while sketching – i always want to get dressed up to do my freelance writing, but especially with this sticky summer heat, i always end up donning whatever’s simple and light. a dress like that really adds that extra something.

    DEFINITELY wear it while you sketch. if nothing else, you will look picturesque while you search yourself for inspiration.
    awesome boots too. :)
