WAS ABDUCTED; ESCAPED

Last week, I wrote to let you guys know that I was not abducted. This week, I am writing to let you know that I was abducted after that post was published, but, luckily, I escaped.

I won’t go into the dirty, grimy details of my capture, the fight sequences, or my time in outer space. All you need to know is that the aliens were made out of chocolate, so I just ate all of them and then escaped. I knew that sweet-tooth would come in handy one day.

Okay, this post just got A LOT weirder than I thought it was going to be.

Anyhoo, that’s my excuse for not posting every day next week…but this week I am back on track! The portfolio is finally finished, so I will be publishing some of those pages, along with my typical wasn’t-listening-in-ap-statistics doodles.

I hope you enjoy, dear ones.

For Becky

As you all know from my spastic post yesterday, I have been working on my portfolio. This is an extremely intimidating task. However, as I always (starting today) say: Intimidating things are easier when you face them with your best friend.

Especially intimidating things like portfolios.

So, Becky (hereafter refered to as BexMex) gave me some input on my portfolio.

She told me to put an old collection from sophomore year in. I said “no way, ya frickin’ crazy son-of-a-squirt-gun”. She said “Amy, you idiot, put it in”. And this continued for a while.

After she left that day, I took another look at the old collection and was like “hmmm, that’s kind of cute. Maybe I should put it in?” Then, I re-worked the collection, updated it a little bit, and VIOLA. This gem. What do you guys think?

I’m happy I listened to BexMex. She’s pretty smart.

I guess sometimes our best friends know us better than we know ourselves.

MESSAGE: NOT ABDUCTED

Hey guys, this is just a quick check-in to let you know that it’s okay – I haven’t been abducted by aliens! I am alive! Well! Eating a stack of peanut butter cookies!

The reason I have been MIA lately (other than that emo poem I posted yesterday) is that I am working on my fashion portfolio for COLLEGE. COLLEGE. COLLEGE. (….Echo echo echo)

Here are a few of the pages I have so far, to keep you interested so you don’t, you know, cheat on me with another annoying fashion sketcher person blog or something.

Ballerina

I really think that I would have made a great ballerina, if I would have been more athletic back in my youth. And if I had eaten less food. If I had eaten less cake.

Wait.

Actually, nevermind. I could never be a ballerina. I like cake too much.

So, I guess this post just lost it’s relevance.

Um.

SPRINKLES AND UNICORNS AND ED WESTWICK.

(There…did I completely disorientate and befuddle you? Have you forgotton how pointless this post is?)

Here are some sketches of outfits that remind me of ballerinas. I hope your day gets less confusing. I hope my day gets less confusing.

P.S. Yes. Yes, that is a chocolate stain on this picture. I LIKE CHOCOLATE, OK!?!?!?!? SUE ME. Ahem.

Fancy Shat

Here is a piece that I did of…get ready…

An open-backed dress

Backwards

IN WATERCOLOR

With a cheetah-print stole.

And I’m posting it in Sepia, Black-and-White, and FULL HD COLOR.

If that shit’s not fancy enough for you, then you are dismissed. Because I have just combined all of my artistic loves into one place. And I also managed to sneak a butt-crack into the picture as well. My life, ladies and gentlemen, is one huge WIN.

Don’t feel too bad about yourself…not everyone can be as amazing as me. Oh! That was my microwave beeping! My T.V. dinner is ready. Got to go…Netflix awaits…

But like I was saying: don’t be jealous.

Zip Zap Zop

Zip Zap Zop is the name of an extremely boring and pointless ice-breaker game that I learned at church camp. The only good thing about it is that it has supplied me with a name for my blog post. So (not) worth it.

The sketches today play with cut-outs and zippers that unzip in strategic places (Ew…I have read way too many issues of Cosmopolitan magazine…the word “strategic” is ruined for me). They are simple, but I am still kind of obsessed with the concept.

Let me know what you think! Cool or weird and sort of ghetto?

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!

How To Wear: Leather Pants

The number one thing on my clothing wish list right now is a pair of leeeeeathar pantalonees. In normal person language: leather pants. They are so badass, and give any look instant street cred. Just a side note: as a slightly nerdy looking chubbyish white girl from the suburbs, I am completely obsessed with anything that might give me “Street Cred” (although the fact that I say “street cred” probably cancels out any chance I have of actually ever having any). Here are my top favorite leather-pant looks that I would wear if I a) Had leather pants and b) Was cool enough to wear them.

Enjoy, mes amigos. Enjoy.

Fashion Class Rejects

These dresses  were discarded from my final project for fashion class. There wasn’t enough variety or opportunity for accessorizing. However, I really like these dresses because they just seem super fun and couture, like you could wear them to some exotic and glamourous party in Italy or something. So I am posting them here, because this is where my fashion class rejects go for their afterlife.
