I’m a teen at heart, so of course I tuned into some of the Awards last night. Yay! Vampire Diaries (my guilty pleasure)…check out some of my picks for Best Dressed. Do you agree?

Petty Paws

5 Aug

Hi Project Runway Fanatics! Our season 9 designers gave a whole new meaning to the term catwalk this week. Unconventional challenges are a staple for PR, and this one was no different. Vehicle interiors, been there. Trash, been there. But wee wee pads, a whole new story! The challenge: create an outfit from materials found at Petland — the discount pet supply store. What’s more fashionable than fish tank plants and squeaky chew toys?

Compliment Closet highs:

Anthony: bird seed dress (should have won!)– Nothing looked more expensive and chic. I loved how the dark seeds at the neck blended beautifully downward into the light seeds. The styling was simple but spoke volumes, while the seeds themselves created this strong structural fit.

Joshua M: aquarium rock two-piece – Fifties and funky? Vintage and modern? Fantastically fresh! He mixed vintage silhouettes with modern patterns that couldn’t be ignored. And those fish tank rocks? Who knew they could look so cool. The bright hues brought extra spark to the piece. And I didn’t hate the dog toy pieces on the shoes (or the slight mid-drift) but could have done without all that makeup.

Honorable mentions: Victor’s purple “Depends” dress (oh, Tim!), Anya’s dog leash two-piece and Becky’s neon feathers and plants frock.

Of course I didn’t hate Oliver’s winning design, but I couldn’t see past those eyebrows. Totally freaked me out.

Lows:

Bryce — pee pee explosion was a hot mess. The structure of his top had spark, but like the judges said it didn’t fit properly. And the bottom? Awful, if anything he should have died the pee pee pads a complete opposite color than that baby blue that they come as.

Fallene — I still love her! I’m just disappointed she was almost sent home. Yes, she could have done better. But the skirt itself wasn’t that bad!

Joshua C. — He seemed like genuine guy and loved what he did. He just couldn’t work past the fitting issues.

So what you guys think? To steal a line from Joshua, was it trashion or fashion?

Funky nails

So I’m not much of a fashionista when it comes to makeup and hair (aside from flower headbands and cool barrettes), but I am a nail girl! I miss my acrylics terribly, but at the same time there is something to say about those who can make natural nails look amazing. And nothing does that better than funky nail polish. Lots of new trends are popping up this season and who doesn’t love options? On my list: glitter polish and the new craze by OPI, the shatter polish. Also try funky neons, mixed designs, messages and nail bling! Let your nails speak volumes and give your wardrobe a quick and easy pick-me-up!!
