hitting it outta the park…

I totally thought I was “hitting it outta the park” when I walked into the meeting with a huge box of macaroons to share with the agents. After all, I am French and love to share the delicacies of Paris when I can. My papa set the long, rectangular box of delicious coffee, vanilla, cassis, and pistachio macaroons on the gigantic table. I have never seen such a huge table – except at my Grandma’s for thanksgiving dinner- The difference is at my Grandma’s house, everyone practically fights for the delicious food … Here at the meeting, the agents did not really appreciate the macaroons! As I bit into my third macaroon, I realized I was the only one enjoying myself. Were these agents we were meeting with on a diet, I wondered????? Or was it that they only knew the Martha Stewart macaroons, baked from coconut, that are served during Passover? Oh well! More for me, I thought! Well, just as they did not get the macaroons, I did not get them.
The guy, the agent. wondered if we could make a reality show about my family.
????????????????????????????????????????????
never.
After the meeting, as I stood in my fabulous dress and jack purcell’s, I told Pilar: “This is about me! Not my family!” She said, “I wish you had said that to them in the meeting!”

Meeting with the agents

I am finally waking up from what I thought was a bad dream of my “big day” !
You know how excited I was for my meeting … My outfit was fantastic: Since I did not find the perfect shoe for my original idea of what to wear, I quickly designed and sewed something even better: A perfect white tshirt (of course with some pizazz…) and white and silver brocade umpire skirt, paried with jack purcell’s. SOOOOOO CUTE ! SOOOOOOO ME ! Of course I changed the boring white laces to fab grey ones to bring in the silver on the brocade. I felt great. I felt fab. I felt ready to sign a deal!

MOOD

Today I went to the most amazing fabric store called “MOOD”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OMGGGG I WAS IN ABSOULLOUT HEAVEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I had no idea such an amazing fabric store existed.
I have been to JoAnn’s and to the fabric stores downtown, … but: WOW!
MOOD ! Boy oh Boy, did MOOD put me in a good mood!

I WALKED UP and DOWN EACH ISLE JUST DROOLING! I WANTED EVERYTHING!
MY MIND WAS RACING FROM SPARKLE TO STRETCH TO FLORAL TO GOLD LEATHER !

Once I realized my grandma was sitting on a chair in the front of the store sleeping. I knew my time was running out. I had better start pulling bolts of fabric to be cut.

I DECIDED THAT FOR MY FALL COLLECTION, I WANT THE FOCUS TO BE ON ALL
PURPLES AND GOLDS !!!!! I FOUND THE MOST AMAZING PURPLE AND GOLD FABRIC!
STRETCH, MEN’S SUITING, AND GLITTERY GOLD!

Since my brother does not fit into some of his “golf” collar shirts anymore (my mom thought purple’s were cool for him), I am going to turn his “hand-me-downs” into fabulous, purple and gold “good-MOOD” inspired dresses.

IT IS Absolutely GOING TO BE THE MOST AMAZING COLLECTION OF ALL; but of course,
EVERY COLLECTION IS GOING TO BE AMAZING AND BETTER EACH TIME!!!!!

With my grandma now sleeping in her very air-conditioned car, I was starting to feel rushed.

I CAN NOT BELIVE HOW THE PROJECT RUNWAY PEOPLE CAN LOOK AT ALL OF THE ISLES and MAKE THEIR CHOICES IN ONLY 30 MIN.

IT TOOK ME ALMOST 4 HOURS TO CHOOSE MY FABRICS….Well maybe not that long!

I could have stayed their ALL DAY ! But my Grandma was hungry.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE MOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I hope my creations put you in a GOOD MOOD !

WELL,
CHOW FOR NOW!
