This is just a long to the floor dress the has a really deep sweetheart neckline!
I realized that I haven't really said much before about what I have attached to the fashion world besides just loving clothes! I plan on going to FIDM for collage which is the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising! What I really want to go into is wedding dress design along with formal dress design! So what I have started to do is something called draping. Draping is when you take big pieces of fabric and design pieces of clothing around a dress form (manikin) and then just pinning it! Never having it be sewn! So these are a few things that I have draped, there are more but I didn't want to have to many pictures! All of these dresses are made out of the same piece of fabric! This is a great way just to get the ideas that you have in your head out to see them in real life! You never have to cut or sew anything!

This is a close up on the dress that is above!
This dress again has the deep sweetheart neckline but is short and has the fabric swept over to the side!

This is a long to the floor skirt with a high waist!

Look for today!

My look for today is a 70's, laid back, denim grunge, look. So the main component of this outfit is the extra large denim jacket that used to be my brothers that he never wore.... so i stole it, but he doesn't even notice.  But i made sure that even though i am wearing a denim jacket and denim jeggings i kept the denim different shades to keep me from looking like a Backstreet Boy. Anyway this look is a little more grungier then what you might see me wear, but technically i don't have a specific style. I wear what i want when i feel like it, because i find it hard to keep up an image and a certain look. Also i like so many different styles and trends so it's hard to decide, but kudos to those who can! So, for this look i kept the hair on the grungy side with a boho braid (which are my favorite), thick eyeliner on my top lids, black lace up booties, an ombre, purple, scarf and besides that minimal accessories. Anyway hope you enjoy...... Happy Monday! (jacket is a Hollister, Cats shirt and boots are Forever21, i don't know where the scarf is from, jeans are Abercrombie, necklace is Tiffany and Co.)
