Inspired by lovely style icon Kate Bosworth, I decided to turn my old Hollister levis into stylish shorts. In the picture above, Kate's wearing levis shorts with a crossed seam detail on the sides; I decided to do kind of the same thing on my new shorts.
My sister got a summer job in Playa del Carmen, Can Cun, Mexico... I'm so envious, that place is paradise... I gave her the swim suit as a gift... I'm hoping she sends me some pictures to post in here.

Pictures from the bachelorette party I hosted in my house last Saturday.
Everything went great.. we had a blast. The outfit I made for the bachelorette fit her perfectly, she was so surprised, she had no idea. I also made my outfit and I absolutely loved the top, I'm pretty pleased with my work.

work keeps poping up... I must finish this dress by Tuesday... It will be worn on Friday by the birthday girl.
At first I designed it for me, I bought the fabrics and everything... but I never found the time to get on it, then a friend saw the sketch and begged me to do it for her.. she made and offer I couldn't refuse... I'm actually flattered she liked it that much, I'll have to design something different for me later...

"Have you ever confused a dream with life?
.. or stolen something when you have the cash?
Have you ever been blue?
.. or thought your train moving while sitting still?
Maybe I was just crazy... maybe it was th 60's
.. or maybe I was just a girl interrupted."
"Borderline Personality Disorder. An instability of self-image, relationships and mood, uncertain about goals, impulsive in activities that are self damaging, such as casual sex. Social contrariness and generally pessimistic attitude are often observed.
What a blast it would have been to live in the 60's...

Lack of posts due to lack of time.. I've been busy..
Remember this illustration from last post?.. It's the costume I'm making for my friend's bachelorette party.. It's almost done.. I have some pictures here...

I don't know you, but in Mexico.. actually in the northern region of Mexico.. it's a costum to throw dress-up bachelorette parties. We plan the surprise party, we choose a theme, we send out invitations with the dress code according to the theme and we all have a blast in different costumes.. of course, the bachelorette must have the coolest costume, she has to shine the most.
In two weeks we'll be throwing a bachelorette party in my house and we're already working on the decorations with fake anchors, life savers, lighthouses, boats.. and of course.. a simulation of the Titanic crashing into a gigantic iceberg.. that'll make a cool photo background. Anyway.. I'm in charge of the main costume.. this is a sketch of what I have in mind for my bachelorette friend.. I already started it.. although I've added different things to make it more noticeable.. more extravagant, more Gaga... puffy sleeves were obviously added.

Lucky for me I sold another dress from my catalogue.. it's from the "open back series".. as the name says it.. they all have open back or some sort of distinctive detail in the back.. I think that's the sexiest part in a woman's body.. we must show it off!
The dress is available in any color but my girl picked purple as the one in the drawing above.. the fabric is stretch satin and the metal zipper on the back is optional.. personally I love metal zippers showing off, but I've come across a few people that don't like them at all.
Anyway.. remember the dress I sold last week? the black and white stripped one with also an open back?... I didn't have time to take pictures.. it looked great honestly.. and the girl that bought it is super extremely skinny and tall so she had no problem looking great on lycra fabric.. I will stalk her facebook until I see some pictures of her wearing that dress on a night out and then.. I'll post them and succeed!
Other updates in my boring life:
-My boyfriend Rafael Nadal won Roland Garros tournament and is once again the #1 tennis player in the world. (Sorry Fed!).
-Sex and the city 2 rocks even more than the first one.
-Red wine as the first drink/meal of the day at noon is a bad choice.
-CFDA Awards.. who won?.. must check up on that!
-Lady Gaga's new video was not what I expected but still I love her.
That's all.. I've got a lot of homework to do.. final projects need me or otherwise they will stay there unfinished.. if only those suckers could manage to work for themselves!

I've never been a fan of Versace brand, actually I almost never really liked anything they designed, maybe it's just not my style... but anyway, this year I absolutely loved the entire collection. It's seems they kind of went on a slightly different direction, maybe they wanted to explore a different style which I think was a total hit.
