a week’s worth – 27-02-09
A Week’s Worth documents what I did all week – a little peek into the life of a fashion illustrator and blogger.
I fell off the wagon this week – when it comes to taking pictures. Not that there was much going on worth taking pictures of. Since I got back from Las Vegas my schedule is just a bit off, I felt a bit off, and I opted to hibernate and work for most of the week, missing some nice weather and probably some cool events. You know what? I will just get back to it next week, I have lots of stuff planned, and I will take photos again.
The highlight of the week was last night, when finally got tired of being lonely and went to visit The Deadly Nightshades. I got a sneak peek at their new website (super cool!) and a couple of their designs that they will be showing at [FAT], Toronto’s alternative fashion week coming up in April. These girls have a strong case of fashion-designeritus – the up-past-midgnight-dying-fabric-in-the-bathtub kind. I love them, such vivid characters and full of passion for each other and creating things.
Ok, so as not to post a week’s worth without pictures, I want to include two favourites from last week.
Here I am at the POOL Style Sight photo booth. A little more dressed up than usual. I can finally put my hair back in a wee ponytail which means that of course, I can’t resist. Shirt is H&M, skirt is thrifted Banana Republic, shoes from Zola.
Ray and I have been going to the library frequently over the last month. I go to the fashion stacks and Ray visits the machining stack. I spend $50 a year on an alumni library card at the Ryerson Library and it is so worth it. The librarians are friendly, and because it serves a school with a lot of design and engineering programs, the selection is incredible.
How was your week?
