Life after Graduation

So graduation has come and gone, and now it is time to get a real job....oh and pay off those overwelming amounts of college loans.

Being the anal person that I am, making my portfolio and website is taking much longer then I would like.  Partly because I am redoing all of my marker sketches in watercolor.  But I did invest in an amazingly beautiful stainless steel portfolio case.  I just want everything to be perfect so that a potential employer has no doubts about wanting to hire me!  Below is just one of those redone watercolor sketches that will become part of my fashion show.

I do have a few side jobs that I am very excited about working on, and with share with you as I go through the process of making them.  My friend is getting married this month, and one of the other wedding attendees has asked me to make her a dress to wear to the wedding.  Well she has an amazingly perfect body to work with, and I am so excited about the design!  Here are some hints about it: Gray, rouched, sheer......(one of my friends says that I am going through color fatigue from my senior thesis which is why I am moving into very neutral colors right now....I kind of agree with her)

Also, I am currently in a hand and lock competition based out of England that involves embroidery.  I have some amazing fabric scraps from a friend that I will be using to create a beautiful beaded dress! I really can't wait to start.

Now I just have to find a job, so I can move to New York and start living the dream!


  1. I can't wait to see the embroidery piece! I guess I'm personally invested now... ;) Good luck!

  2. I am so excited to see more! Little miss A is a lucky girl to be getting a dress made by you! Jealous!
