Me, Myself, and I

I spent Valentine's Day continuing to update my portfolio. I had to (re)shoot a few garments, and with this being a hurried thing again, guess who had to model? Go me. This time I was sans une équipe créative - so I had to do the best I could. I painted my face and put my hair up in a pathetic updo, just to get my hair out of the way. I hung a big piece of white, cotton jersey from my wall, endlessly battling with the tape (I'm not willing to put holes in my wall just yet). I rounded up some lights, redirected the lights in my kitchen, and got my camera set up. Self-timer is an amazing thing. I wish I could say I had fun doing this.

Here are some shots of my Wear-Every-Way dress. It's a reversible dress with a detachable chiffon "scarf" that doubles as a belt. You can leave it on and tie it a million ways, or leave it off and let the garment just fall around you. You can wear it in a variety of ways including as a wrap, a shrug, a top, a sleeved-hood thing, and so on. It's really up to your imagination. Once again I'm designing as though fabric were the most precious thing in the world... In time perhaps it will be. For now, this is the ultimate investment piece for a poor fashionista. Enjoy.
