necessary roughness

I now own two Junya pieces including this bomber jacket and I’m happy, but not satisfied.  To tell you the truth, all my specialty purchases end up being safely tucked away in my drawer or hanging in my closet.  All I can think about are the horrible things that could happen while wearing something out . . . the mesh on my new bomber could rip, my knit dress could get a snag, my bright white shirt dress could get a stain . . . it goes on, and on and on.  It’s such a MAJOR bummer and I’m fed up already!

So, slowly I’m going to reintegrate my special loves into my daily life.  Rips can be mended, snags can be knotted and stains can be washed out.  As long as I remember that, everything will be alright.

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?
