It's been a long weekend...

Last Thursday I started a crazy bad cold! I was sick as death all weekend. Coulden't get out of bed and fever non stop. It's now Monday morning and I feel somewhat normal. Still got the sniffles but I feel like I can have a normal day. I wish I was not working today and spend the day with my boyfriend but alas I promised to replace my friend at work. I did get alot of sketching done for my jeanswear project inspired by the Great Depression...

This is not an easy process... I keep getting bits and pieces of insperation from all kinds of things I have been surrounding myself with. I think being sick and depressed all weekend helped me in my creative ideas somehow. My first sketches from last week that I did not scan yet were to happy joy joy. Ive been playing around with the skirt mouvement all weekend. I need to come up with 3 jackets with collars, sleeves and pockets and 2 skirts,pants or shorts. I still have alot of work ahead of me but so far I am pretty happy with these little sketches...


St├ęphane took me on a mini mini thrifting trip near the house but nothing interesting was waiting for there. We came back home and took a few photos of him, he insisted on taking mine.
So this is what I wore yesterday on my sick day:

-Vintage fruit printed cotton blouse, found at Buffalo Exchange in Pheonix a very long time ago...
-Vintage 60s taupe mini skirt, thrifted
-Red leggings, AA
-Vintage navy maryjanes, etsy

I can't wait to see what my teacher thinks of my sketches at school and what she thinks will be best for my mini collection. I also get to choose the fabrics, this should be very interesting since everything is jeans!
