Delusional

I think it is safe to say that about 69.9% of my designs are of dresses that I envision myself wearing while making an acceptance speach at an awards show. I also think it is safe to say that I am 100% delusional about my current and future life. In my defense, it is much more fun to fantasize about being rich and famous than to consider the cold, dark reality of being a struggling artist for the rest of my days. The world of Delusion is warm and fuzzy and happy, thankyouverymuch, and I intend to stay there for as long as I possibly can.

By the way, this is my Oscar-Acceptance-Speech gown. I can’t wait to see Leonardo’s face as I thank him for being such an amazing co-star.

Travel-Size Toothpaste

Travel-Size Toothpaste

Travel-size toothpaste

Is one-night motels

Moldy old sinks and gas-station hell

Airplanes and bus rides that end in nowhere

Drains filled with mildew

And clumps of old hair.

Travel-size toothpaste

Is new, foreign places

Buildings and statues with odd structured faces

Memories, family, and snapshots of time

Sharing hotel rooms, close as can be

Laughter and smiles, you’re feeling just fine.

Travel-size toothpaste

Is two star-crossed lovers

Savoring weekends just once a full moon

Hello, then goodbye – repeat over again

Bliss for a day, kiss for a night

Two days of love then pack up, go away.

Travel size toothpaste

Means all this and more –

There’s only one question we’ve left to explore

Where will you go, what will you see?

With your travel-size toothpaste

…Just don’t forget me.

When In Doubt, PUFF IT

When in doubt, puff it. Puff it reeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaallllll good. It will make everything else seem better.

I think there is something wrong with me. I have been sitting here laughing for like 5 minutes at how funny I am for making it seem like I am telling you to do drugs. Maturity age = 8 years and 7 months. But hey, at least I like myself, right?!

When I say “Puff it”, I am not, in fact, talking about…*whisper* drugz. I am talking about these amazing, sheer, super flouncy and puffy sleeves! I am obsessed! I think they make any dress seem so classy and fun and posh. In this case, puffing is a definite DO!

For Mon Cher Eden

Did you see that? Did you see how I made the title of this post French, so it is automatically classy as shit? That, mes amigos, is called FRENGLISH, a delicate language that is a mix of French and English. Posh? Psh.

This peice is one that I did for Eden (Aka Yoda) after she helped me get the hang of watercolor painting. I am finally, FINALLY happy with how it turned out! For once, a painting actually ended up looking like I wanted it to. I fully attribute this to the fact that I was watching The Mindy Project at the same time. That show is pure comedy gold, people. Watch it. You will die laughing. And I will paint you a watercolor dress to set on top of your casket at your funeral. Did I just write that?

DayDream

Whenever I get bored during class (which is, like, all the time), one of my favorite things to do is to daydream. The possibilities for travel are endless, and if Ed Westwick just so happens to show up somewhere in it without a shirt, then so be it.

Here is the dress that I am wearing in my daydream today.

Did I mention that I am always wearing amazing designer clothes in my day dreams? Oh, also, I am usually about 30 pounds lighter. And that, my friends, is why they are called DREAMS.

Never Look Back

A poem about escape.

OxOx, Amy Rebecca

Never Look Back

The deepest wish in all my heart

Is to float off this earth into a world of dark

A place made of dreams

Of Happy

Of Joy

A place where this pain

Can touch me no more

There will I run

So free and so strong

If only, if only,

If only I could

Float off this earth into a world of dark

Into my dreams

And never look back.
