I know that I am not making my dress because that you only get one shot and if it doesn't fit or get done in time, you're screwed. I also don't have fabulous fabric stores in my reach. And as any mathematician can tell you an equation with too many unknown variables is bad. I have a list of things I like in a dress.
I was watching the Golden Globes with the friend I'm going dress shopping with and when Olivia Wilde came on the screen I said,"I want that." I love it because it has a big skirt and sparkles. I adore sparkles.
I've seen Black Swan twice now and I love this dress. I love the subtle rhinestone and the tulle. Don't like that it is white.

The shorts are pretty masculine on their own but the bow makes them girly. I think it would look great with a loose shell pink top. $39.99
This dress is fancier than the others. I love the shade of green. I think velvet can be worn anywhere. This can be made casual with some black tights and a leather jacket. $69
I finished up my midterms today. My English teacher gave me a bag of fabric. And now I have small break so my friend and I are going to my favorite vintage store tomorrow.

Pink Linen Jacket- This baby has been on my list for years. Everything is cutout and marked but I'm too afraid to ruin it. I think in the pink linen it will make and excellent spring jacket. That could be carried into the colder months with additional layers under it. It is hard to find online but it is here.
Blueberry shirt- My wardrobe desperately lacks tops. My green shirt looks really good with my blueberry dress so I'm going to make a blueberry one. Hopefully, it can work with the to be made denim shorts.
Also on the list: another ridiculous embroidery project-I'm thinking undersea dress,and a 1950s style Mondrian dress.

I have midterms this week which I'm not thrilled about and most of my friends are heading back to college this week and next week. But I do get out earlier which is fun.

One of my New Year's resolutions was to wear more red lipstick because it always makes me feel put together. It is also a really easy thing to achieve.

The dress on the left I got as a present last year. It is one of my favorite dresses; but I rarely wear it because I'm not sure how to make it casual. The second outfit is surprising because I never wear pants. But I love my sparkly leotard. I wore this outfit during a huge snow storm. I like the outfit on the left because of the skirt. It took me about half a year to embroider but it was so worth it. The second outfit I like because I'm wearing my favorite jacket and it has a lot of colors.
The outfit on the left was my Korean food outfit. I really like the romper and I made the giant owl necklace. The second outfit is entirely made by me. I wore it to play mini golf.
I wore the outfit on the left to see my friends' play. The dress is one of the favorite things I've made and I love the combination of purple and grey. The one on the left I like because the skirt is so pretty.
2010 was a good year for me. But I think 2011 is going to be my year.
