ILLINOIS STATE FASHION SHOW

May 9, 2016



For those of you who missed it or are interested in seeing my work. Here are photos from the Illinois State Fashion Show where I designed and made five garments. I also was Fashion Show Modeling director and designed all the graphics for the show. It was an amazing experience that I will take with me throughout my professional career. 

WEEK 12: ONLINE SHOPPING

Apr 17, 2016



This past week has been one of the busiest weeks of my life. Preparing for the fashion show has been taking up all of my time. Although I've been busy, I still managed to spend money on clothes. With the fashion show this Friday, I went on a search for the perfect dress to wear to the show. Since I had little time to actually go out and shop, it was convenient for me just to online shop. 

One of my favorite places to online shop is ASOS. I like their style of clothes because they are unique twist to what's trending. I found a dress that I fell in love with online and knew I had to buy it for the show. While I was browsing I also noticed there was a sale going on too so I had to of course check that out too. I may have splurged a little bit on clothes this week, but they were all items I thought I needed - not just buying to buy. 

Overall, I think I have made a lot better shopping decisions since I started the sabbatical. I hope to take this skill along with me throughout my life. 


WEEK 11: MY FIRST BUY IN MONTHS

Apr 10, 2016


This past week I stayed pretty consistent throughout my sabbatical and didn't buy any new clothing - mostly because I'm so busy. 

WEEK 10: REVISITING SHOPPING

Apr 3, 2016



Hello long lost friend. My freedom to shop is officially back and the sabbatical is over. To my surprise, even with my eagerness to spend money on clothes, I didn't spend a dime on shopping. To say I am busy right now would be an understatement. I'm investing all my time at work, school, and creating my designs for the fashion show, that even though I could shop again, I didn't have the time to actually shop!
