I would appreciate any suggestions!
dress: Bluenotes boutique shoes: Sarah Jessica Parker belt: unknown
Ignore the skirt part, I just threw the fabric around the bottom so you would get the idea of what I want it to look like. The skirt wil be shorter and fuller. That is the fabric colour I want to use which is why I put it on there for perspective reasons. I have done more on it since this picture was taken, but ony the lining so it still looks the same.
I have an aweful time trying to find things in store I want to wear. I usualy have a clear cut image in my mind of what I want but can never never find it. Then months later I see other people wearing what I wanted to and meanwhile I never got to wear it in the first place. So I figure, if I can learn to sew and make my own clothes, I can wear things when I want to and not have to wait till the trend comes and goes.
It is strange to sit and think about death, but on the rare occasions that our lives are impacted by it, you can't help but think about it. The one thing that is hard to wrap my mind around or accept is that she is gone. Just like when loved ones die, this soul is gone forever and I will never meet anyone that is exactly like her for as long as I live. Her life, our memories and her personality disappeared when she died and ony live on through me. She will not hop throught the Christmas wrapping paper this year either. If it is true that there is something after death, I will not see her again for at least 50 years which is a very long time to wait. Like my grandmother, I cannot believe I won't speak to her ever again. I thought of getting another animal but you know that things can help with the hurt but nothing will replace her. So go and hug your animals because they are amazing and bring us so much joy. You don't know how long they will be with you, and we usually take them for granted, so let them know you love them.

I want these Steve Maddens:
but have these on hold for me at ALDO to try on tomorrow:
They are a different style than I am used to and that everyone else is used to seeing me in, but something about them has just pulled me in. I think they are fabulous and hope they feel fabulous tomorrow!
ALDO boots: $140

I have been a long time fan of the elegance Oscar de la Renta puts into his collections. This season I loved the mod retro swimsuit look he injected into the collection along with this gown, here is my favoutire from Spring 2009:
And then there is Alexander McQueen. Some designers are famous for being well, famous. But this is a man that is famous because of his creativity and skill. He can change body shapes and introduce new materials like no designer I have ever seen. I loved the canary yellow feather dress he did for his fall collection. It was extremely similar to what Kenley did for her finally dress on Project Runway. I am not in love with this piece below because I would want to wear it, but because I can appreciate the art and detail in it and the pain it would take to make. The flow of the fabric at the shoulders looks like it was accidental, but yet it is semetrical on both sides. The fabric is beautiful. If it was toned down a lot I think it would be very cute to wear.

I'm prety sure the trousers are going to win, bt I wish I had a pop of colour to go with it, like a SKINNY BELT in orange. That would compliment it well. There was an awesome orange belt at Mexx that I think I might have to go and get. Then there is my chunky gold necklace I picked up at an antique store.

These women are just so dang adylike and professional looking that, rocky relationships aside, I would love to live in their world!
There was also a dress worn by Victory that was a metallic pink embroidered number that was sleeveless with a boatneck. It was gorgeous. If you know which one I'm talking about, there is a dress just like it at Banana Republic for $275, but they didn't have my size :(

thiese are shning examples of what I think will come into fashion in the near future. Yes they are not extremely new photos, but I think they will catch on. But of course I will keep my awesome wide belts for when they come in again in a season or two.
