Thursday’s Three Things

– A work in progress.  Finally got my hands on some Knitpicks Palette and so far I’m digging it.

– Lately I’ve been obsessed with watching Karate Kid marathons.  I guess I’m making up for not seeing it in my youth.

Thursday’s Three Things

What a disapointment!

So Project Runway is four episodes in and the clothing seems to be either a mish-mash of whatever fabric thrown together to make an outfit or its something so basic that there is probably a commercial pattern for it out there already.  Where is the DESIGN? I will give them some props for coming up with some kind of SOMETHING.  I couldn’t do what they do and especially not under pressure.

Thumbs Down:

It was so hard to narrow it down to just one.

The whole point of this challenge was to design something that goes with the hat they chose.  I’m not crazy about the outfit on its own, but its the only designer that created something that matched the style of the hat.

No order to the confusion whatsoever.

What a disapointment!

Staple it first…then add the Safety Pins.

Say goodbye to Jason!

 

This show must be near the end of it’s run!  So far I’m finding it kind of boring, in both the designs and in the show overall.  I think Seth from Season 7 is going to be a hard act to follow.    The designs aren’t that exciting, the contestants are more emotional this season, and Michael Kors has even more mad-lib one liners in his bag:     

“She looks like a (nationality) (occupation) going to a (place)!”       

Have fun making up your own.  He probably already beat you to some of them.  The best looking piece on this episode was the beaded collar necklace that April was wearing.      

Thumbs Up:     

Valerie’s Red Dress and Mondo’s fun skirt ensemble for teens.

Thumbs Down:     

Jason “Infinity Dress” (that you just wanted to stop) and the judges for liking Gretchen’s jumpsuit.  I will admit it looked great on the billboard.

Project Runway Season 8!!!

See full size image

I’m not really big on ‘reality tv’, but watching Project Runway is definitely a guilty pleasure of mine.  I’m sure it’s only because I sew and secretly deep down inside wish i could be a fashion designer one day.    I hope that their seeing their designs will inspire me  to create some beautiful clothing of my own but…

*record scratch*

 I’m not so sure about this seasons group of designers.   I’m not so sure about the show, period.    It starts right off with the drama; Because what’s a reality tv show without drama?  *rolls eyes*  It’s a little forced with all the whispers during the runway show and too many over the top personalities.  And the repetition is enough to drive one mad! 

Anyway, I’m still going to watch it regardless.  I can always fast forward straight to the runway at the end.  Thank goodness for DVR.

Thumbs Up:  No need to mention, Gretchen really, but I also thought McKell’s pretty cute…on the dressform.

Thumbs Down: Jason should not have gotten away with STAPLES in his backwards kimono.
