Monochroma.chic

It feels good to vent.  I received numerous emails from bloggy friends, asking if I was okay.  And, I am.  I'm sure my last post was alarming, especially because I live in the land of rainbows and unicorns, but I assure you everything is A-ok!  And to clear things up, I didn't get slapped in the face.  :)

Anyhoo, if you've been an avid reader of my blog (awww, thanks! and welcome new readers), you know that I have a fashion show coming up.  It's for the fashion club I belong to at school.  Our theme is MONOCHROMATIC.  We all had to choose a color from the rainbow, Tim Gunn style.  Yup, that's right... out of a bag!  I got green.  I'm still trying to embrace the color. The process has definitely been a "make it work" journey.  Our show is in 11 days and a sewing miracle needs to happen this week.  We have our first model fitting on Friday.  Aggggghhh!

If you're going to be on Maui on April 16th, I'd love for you to come and check out our show.  If not, I promise to post photos.  And want to give a big shout out to my girl, Kristy.  Thanks for being an inspiration to our fashion show's name.  ♥Love ya!  :)


Love, S

I just wanted to tell you that I LOVE the color green! I know you are probably already done with your fab creations, but a couple of my most FAVORITE outfits are green! The first is a Dina Bar-El emerald green halter bias cut silk gown that makes me look like a goddess (which I am) when I wear it with peacock accessories. Most recently, I bought a BCBG lemongrass jersey gown for a summer wedding I am attending. Think of awesome fabrics like silk and chiffon for flowy skirts (I would love a beautiful, pleated maxi skirt in lemon green or a cotton (or lace!) tiered maxi skirt in hunter for my next hawaii trip with a beautifully draped tank top in a complimentary color! A cute bold green romper would be delightful as well with flirty green sandals...just sayin...

Hi Anonymous... thanks for your comment. I'm not done with all of my looks yet, but yes.. I'm working with more drapey fabrics.. and most pieces are maxi's. :) We are limited to fabrics here on Maui, so it's a bit more challenging to create the designs I have in my mind.
