Dog Days are O-Over!

posted on: Friday, December 16, 2011

Hello darlings,
As a fashion merchandising major I get the grand opportunity to use my creativity and explore different sides of fashion. For my final project this year in Apparel Quality Analysis, I completed an assignment called "What's Hiding In Your Closet?" where I had to analyze clothing for structural quality and garment defects as well. But one amazing part was the photo shoot I got to do with my clothes! I took Lady (my beautiful wire manikin) around town dressed in her finest...or my finest ha! It was an amazing learning experience and a great way to delve creatively into my major after a stressful semester. This is my final hoorah since school is over and now I'm looking forward to lots of books, present making, and long walks with my mom along Bluff Drive, at Isle of Hope. Y'all enjoy and be inspired!

Seeds of Hope

Today Katherine and I had the pleasure of going to a Seeds of Hope jewelry party hosted my her friend Merry Teague.  The beads on display were handmade by widows in Uganda, Africa, using small strips of magazine pages.  The donations for the jewelry go to support the women in Africa through education and economic empowerment! And with just $30 the proceeds can feed one widow and 5 orphans for a month....I can't manage to spend less than $40 a week on my own groceries! But the party was beautifully hosted and I got some wonderful one-of-a-kind finds!
