Ive been having a wonderful day. It's my mom's 50th birthday today and we spent part of it hanging out on Mount-Royal street and St-Denis having cupcakes and window shopping. It's so mild in the city. I love it!

But now reality just set in! I have a technical illustrator flat of a ski coat to finish for Tuesday afternoon and a whole research on Scandinavia to do for a children's wear collection and some mid term's so study for and a million pom poms to make for a fabric sample I am making on Monday.Oh my! thats a long list, see how overwhelmed I am? So thats right YeYe is taking on the challenge of kidswear! I am so excited, I went on Friday night too study the market downtown. CUTE!

So damn cute!

So asides from that here is a few shots of what I was wearing today. Maybe not the booties because it is still slushy and gross out but if it were Spring I would be wearing them in a heartbeat. I thrifted these babies a few months ago they are vintage Escada's. The strippey blouse is thrifted, black onepiece from UO sale rack this summer, Fushia tights from H&M in Toronto.

Oh! one last thing, the coolest thing happended to me today when I was waiting for my mother at Mount-Royal metro. This girl came up to me and reconized me as YeYe, hehe, I was so shy but the girl was really sweet too come and say hello and stuff :) To whomever you were thank you :)

Alive and Well

I am sorry for the lack of posting latelly on the blog. I have been knee deep into ajusting into my new school and work schedule. The stress level just got a little higher in school. I just started to get a little more comfortable this week. I know what to look foward too now. So far so good, only set back is this darnit ski jacket drawing project I need to get over with asap! This is really not my thing. I don't care how much it can be somewhat interesting, I just can't get into it with my designer heart. So I decided to reinvent the women's cross country skiing get up, somehow... More to come on that one...

As for the rest of my classes, I love it, pattern making is more interesting, sewing is fun, I am almost done assembling a black wool vest fully lined with Monet print on it. I am putting Shantung Silk knots as closures on the front. I finally got my sewing machine working for sewing into light weight fabrics. I needed some pro help and get a minor ajustement.

It's been fridgid cold in Montreal on top of all this stress. I have only been leaving the house if I have to. I really dislike this time of year, always such a downer! I will try and post a little more then before and share my journey in my last semester before my last year. I will take pics of that vest next week!
Anyways! I got around to taking an outfit picture today. This has been my uniform latelly, wool skirts with a pattern and a silky button blouse with a different print.
