pay me to dress you


I designed and made this dress all by myself (please hold your applause until the end) i am poor and am too scared to look at my visa bill, so i beg you to buy it from me.


Sweetheart neckline
Empire waist
Bubble Skirt
Mid to Upper thigh length

Centre back zipper
Satin tie

Hand gathered lips

double inverted box pleats

currently fits about 36-26-36 but will be tailored to fit the wearer (note: we can make it smaller, but not any bigger. sorry ladies! design issues and a miniscule budget led to a fabric shortage...sigh)

price might be negotiable, but remember you are funding a budding designer who needs to get through school! also, if you like my style, follow my blog and watch for other clothes I make, cool outfits I wear, and designs I draw.
I am also available for custom dresses and personal styling. comment with your email and I will contact you promptly.

(okay, insert applause here.)

Living in the city, I see a hundreds, maybe thousands of people everyday. Too few of these people are capable of putting together a decent outfit. Aside from the obvious crazy people, there are some people who cannot seem to let go of long dead trends (ahem, ugg boots). Here are my top fashion pet peeves...

1.UGG boots
2.leggings worn as pants
3.popped collars
4.not wearing underwear under a dress or skirt and black
6.emo/scene hair
7.fat chicks in mini skirts
8.wedge heels
9.dressing for the club... at work
10.bleach blonde with a spray-on tan
11.thick black eyeliner
12.skater shoes
13.chain belts
14.pre-ripped jeans
15.over doing the accessories
16.sweatpants in public
17.buying outfits straight off the mannequin

That went on for much longer than I had thought it would. I just wish there was some way of making people realize how terrible they look. sigh... I guess I will just have to settle for my own perfection for now.

i love gold

if i stay in one place i lose my mind

i have a love affair with feathers. i think it relates back to my childhood obsession with Pocahontas. i have a lot of accessories that incorporate feathers. i am also using feathers as an inspiration for my first line. designs to follow...

i lived a large portion of my life out of a suitcase. i guess that's why i never feel at home.
