17th July – One week away from the final hand-in of hardcover book for major project. ( it’s been 3 weeks after marking)
Status: … Meh! Just a Tad fluey – no comment though…
This last Term of college – the production end of it all had gotten me quite booked up and busy.
Early mornings, Late nights, Sewing, sewing, sewing and more sewing, Theory and of course work…See the word “break” in there ?… no, of course you wouldn’t ! It didn’t exist !
After my final marking ( which I must say went quite well except for a few changes here and there), I was worried that I’d go absolutely insane going from a hectic lifestyle to a somewhat relaxed and comfortable break with nothing to do but NOTHING. On top of all the stress and ongoing to-do lists that would repeatedly race inside my mind during what was meant to be “sleep”, another question was always present… What will be next ?
So what came next ?
Well it wasn’t the wonderful break I’d been hoping for.
No trip to LA or New york, No hot Cheetos and Pretty Californian Sunsets, Not even a Europe or Eiffel Tower anywhere in there.
You see, when one studies fashion design it isn’t like most of the other university degrees where you can go vacation your heart away after you’re finished (unless you are loaded…baha!) but by the end of it there is no such thing as “savings” and you’re so broke from all the outsourcing and major project costs that you’re actually stuck right where you are… ( Yes believe it or not it’s true)
However, it didn’t turn out all that bad for me. The “OMG-what-the-hell-will-I-do-after-college-ends” panic mode for going from hectic to suddenly relaxed was wiped away and a new door opened. The full-time Stylist door ! Oh yeah baby !
So I’ve pretty much gone from designer production stage to the other end – Styling and dealing with all the pretty end products… THE SEWING FREE ZONE !
I’ve been doing In-store Styling for Target Castle Hill for the past two weeks, and I’m loving it.
I have my own little Stylist hub at the fitting rooms – So If you decide you need some advice on what to wear or want to know what’s on trend and what we have, you can drop in and book a one-on-one session with me.
So part of the job is obviously me wearing clothing from Target. I make up my own outfits per day and right here is where I’ll share them with you.
Every outfit, every clothing and accessory Item – All from Target.
So If you like something that I’m wearing from my Stylist’s outfit of the day you can easily go to your nearest Target store or come down and visit me and you can purchase it yourself. It’s that easy !
Stylist’s Outfit Of The Day | Look 1 | Snake Print Denim Reowr !!
Graphic, all-over, placement, and animal prints are all in this season and especially here to stick around for S/S ! So why not Bring out the Wild side in you with one of my seasonal Favourites – The Crazy Red Snake skin pant !
It is a nice all over snake print on a red base. A classic 5 pocket denim style that is Mid rise and a very nice cut skinny leg. Suitable for all sorts of body’s – yes even those with bums and tums.
These are my favourite pair of pants this season. The cut is absolutely amazing ! I’ve sold them to all sorts of customers with different body shapes and on each one it’s a miraculous fit ! It’s the miracle pant – I’m telling you ! haha The waist of this pant is a mid-rise. This means that it allows for people who are bottom and hip heavy LIKE ME – The skinny leg is also very flattering as it’s cut to a nice snug fit around the calf/knee allowing you to bend and sit in comfort whilst remaining its shape. The print is also not so heavy so it doesn’t look like a mess.
To Style this outfit – I picked a black Shirt with a high-low hem.
It also comes in two other colour ways. A Burnt orange and a Khaki. Both very on-trend, “Aztec” and easy to accessorise.
Add a Random Black Bag | Leopard print panel works well.
To accessorise – Stick with the same colour palette’s of red and black – a shiny red diamond look with gunmetal would be great. I’ve chosen a matching set.
Add a Necklace….
and matching Bracelet
Don’t Forget the Shoes !
( If you don’t have a good pair of black heels, why not go for a comfortable pair like these.
A nice wedge and average stiletto. Wedge and stiletto are in a snake print and the rest of the shoe is a suede-like fabric)
and the Lipstick.
Beauty Attitude’s $3 Lipstick is a very affordable price for a good quality lipstick.
A darker Raspberry red is great for brunettes and girls with darker features and a regular bright red for the fair skinned beauties.
