[PFW Spring 2014] Look #1: Maxi Skirt


So I kind of love this look, especially the skirt, because it was honestly made on such a whim (a really good whim though!). It was less than a week to the show and I still had like two half looks to complete (this skirt and another one) so I was a little freaked out. I bought this fabric forever ago from Joann's for like $3 a yard and it caught my eye one night when I was struggling to feel inspired.

So I played around with draping a little, realized it would make a beautiful maxi skirt, and whipped it up in one night! Haha sometimes I really surprise myself. I'm insanely happy with how it turned out though. I think that fabric was clearly meant to be made into a maxi skirt.

This shirt is one of my new favorites. It's pretty simple but really cute. I did a little thing called reverse applique on the green triangles and was very pleased with the result. :)

Thanks to my sister Carina for modeling! I think I'm pretty ready to wear this look sometime, I just have to hem the skirt first because my sister is about four or so more inches taller than me and she's wearing heels in these photos haha. Let me know what you think!

Provo Fashion Week (Part 2): the Runway Show

My blog...is pretty! And I love it. As you can see, I totally revamped the whole thing, and I'm very pleased with it. I think it needed a fresh look to make myself want to blog a little more and have a place I feel happy writing in. Pretty things are just more inspirational than ugly ones, don't you think? (not that I'm saying the old design was ugly!)

I know you are all dying with anticipation (sarcasm noted) to see the runway photos from Provo Fashion Week. Well....wait no longer! The post is here! The excitement is here! And clearly, the craziness is here! And I will try to stop it now!

The runway show was super fun. We didn't have a raised runway, which has pros and cons to it, but it was fun to have the models be more eye level to the audience so they could get a better look. It was in the Startup Building in Provo, which is a really cool, old building, and made an awesome location for a fashion show! One of my favorite parts of it were all the windows on the walls that made for great natural light, as you'll see in the photos. My models walked to this song, which I thought was a fun song for the runway. Anyway, less talk! Here are the photos. Thanks to my dad, LC Photography, and Jessakae Photography for getting such awesome pictures!

And there you have it folks..the runway show! Sorry for the photo overload, but it really was great. Fashion shows always give me such a rush! And I apologize, because I know you're probably sick of seeing these outfits, but I'm going to do individual posts for them...for posterity's sake, ya know?

Have a great weekend...I'm gonna be taking a spontaneous two-day trip to California where I'm going to buy tons of fabric in the LA Fashion District, yay! I promise to write all about it, I cannot wait!
