You know it’s hot when you can feel the breeze but you can’t find the dragon

Ahoy, my fellow fashionistas! Todays weather was crazy HOT, wasn’t it? NYC needs to chill a little bit, literally! Come on, let’s keep cool with some fashion in mind.

Today, in my second class (Manual Pattern Making and Sewing) we are completing our little sessions on making basic shirts, bustiers and sweetheart neckline blouses and heading into our final piece which is deemed to be the creation and design of a whole dress, where it can be any pattern or shape that we want! I think I’m going to go for a wild, bold print… I starting to think I should welcome the Future Project Runway girl in me. Muhahaha!

During my afternoon 15 minute break, I decided to get some Fruit Snacks at the vending machine. But just as I was about to put my money in– oblivious of the fact that there was something stuck at the bottom– a very fashionable girl said to me, “My snack got stuck…” and I was then informed of the vending machine’s suspected crimes. It was a very amusing 5 minutes trying to get her chips out. Unfortunately, my fruit snacks did not push down her little munchies… neither did the girls that bought something after me. But fortunately, I did get my awaited snack, and so did she… in time. (That includes calling the Caretaker to rip open the evil machine and save her potato chips)… That was such an exaggeration.

"Save me!"

OMG, and another thing! I have recently found out about this place on 26th on 7th after paying close attention to the girls in my afternoon classes haul from Buffalo Exchange. They were talking about the super reasonably priced shoes and clothing items they purchased, and even showed the items to the class. Everything was wonderful! My friend was even telling me about how she got a pair of Jeffrey Campbell Sandals at BE for only $20! After school multiple students bounced over there to check out the latest trends and goodies their “Buy, Sell and Trade” initiative had to offer. To my luck, I found a cute pair of Leopard sheer trousers that actually fit well –I’d have to wear something underneath, of course– that I could even wear on a hot day (I’m obsessed with Leopard and Cheetah prints if you havent noticed, teehee). Everything was adorable… except the sweaters, no one was even going near those in this boiling hot weather!
