I'm currently at loss for action. Just graduated college. Don't have a "real job" yet (aka design job/I do actually work full time at Betsey j MOA now)...so WHAT DO I DO?
Well, I start by painting a wall in my room. It's like a new start. Throw all the junk, I feel like I may be a bit of a hoarder, so I need to really nip that habit in the bud...
My life will be unperfectly perfect because I will be the one to go after what I want until it is achieved.
Keep believing babes...

Finally. Landed in good old NYC, many hours after first expected.
Friday was back to Betsey. I. Could. Not. Wait.
I stopped at the best bagel place in the world on my way into work!...by far the best...so good... its called Bagels and Coffee. Once finally at work I did the usual, hang out in caitlin's new office :) met all of the new interns who seem like pretty great people :) and caught up with the designers and every other lovely at Betsey :) I love this place.
The day was full of model fittings, getting garments ready, running errands, and everything and anything else. It was a late night...the whole weekend was late nights...Saturday was great again, more of the same craziness, making dresser kits, staying late and drinking beverages, making gift bags... Sunday, again, awesome, again more of the same stuff, along with Betsey practicing her dance for the end of the show which was absolutely amazing, also Lulu's fitting, and model card making was in store for us.
Show time. Line up time. Crazy time.
Ten minutes and it was time for the finale looks, with the caps. They were going on fine, I was putting them on models heads as they were in line since the hair helpers seemed to have no idea what was going on with the caps they were supposed to be putting on, fiinally last look, it wasnt happening. The cap wasnt staying. AH...Peter pulled it off the second the model was walking onto the runway. The last cap didnt make it....but the show was AHHHHMAZING!
Time of my life.
So incredibly surreal.
Then I saw the stars, literally, they came to say hello backstage, Nicki Minaj among them...
Then after partayy :)
The night was grand. The five and a half days back in New York were grand.

Busy bee. Busy is me.
Oh dear, I have become a horrible excuse for a blogger, I just feel like there is no time in the day anymore!...art project upon art project plus sewing projects plus that thing called homework...college. Two more months. I can do it :)
...last photo = my father circa 1983(ish) aka college...

(^matt & Kim...my chemical romance...blink 182!)
Some festivities before fashion week...BLINK CONCERT!!
Once again...amazing. I guess the third time really is a charm.
We first bought our tickets this summer when blink had a great 20 dollar ticket rush sale for 182 minutes..although we knew the seats would probably kinda suck, it was really the only way I could go due to my amazing summer internship and it's financial disabling abilities...
I had really not given as much excitement to thus event as usual because of fashion week, but the day of the show I could barely contain myself almost running home from class too excited to get in my car and drive home. Whole driving...I won tickets...on twitter!..however still unsure how...
We decided to sit at whichever set of tickets were the best of course..and the free tickets which were given to me by famoussas were SO GREAT...sad we couldn't be on the floor being all sweaty, hot, and rowdy..but at least these tickets were the next best thing! And the guys we got the tickets from were pretty cool too...
Needless to say, they put on a great show once again and even though it wasn't a sold out crowd and I highly disagree with 99% of the show review in the St. Paul pioneer press, they rocked it and give them a break...the show was on a wednesday in the first days of a new school year!
...soon to be in New York for MB Fashion Week...
