This week, after many years of dreaming and weeks of stressing, launches my official official installment of Project Real Way!
If you didn’t see in last Thursday’s post, let me fill you in. Each week, I will be watching Project Runway as it airs Thursday nights at 9pm on Lifetime (not sponsored). Then, I will attempt to complete the challenge at home and post the following Thursday before the next week’s episode. Although it won’t be exactly the same, I will do my best to complete the challenge given financial and time constraints, but I’m not being voted off, so give me a break if I try to make my look perfect, ok?
The first episode aired last week and they started with the dreaded ‘unconventional challenge’. The contestants had 5 minutes to raid a party that they were at, to create a party look that describes their style. I had my own similar challenge, and you can see in the video below how I designed, created and styled a look for this challenge from scratch. Watch the entire video to see what my judges thought, and please write in the comments your own opinions on my look. Think of it as your own crowd-sourced Project Runway- I’m eager to hear what you think!
Special Thanks to:
Mom (think of her as my Tim Gunn)
Lindsey – (my awesome photographer) who killed it with my runway photos!
Alyssa Surrett – My friend and style maven behind the blog, Alistedblog.com . She’s gotta whole lotta southern charm packed into a tiny little body, and somehow manages to stay real in the New York City circus!
Hayley Paige – The amazing wedding dress designer and my former classmate and roommate. She designs her eponymous line Hayley Paige as well as the Blush by Hayley Paige line, and dresses all sorts of celebrities to boot. Aly Raisman anyone?
Sylvia Esmundo – A friend, previous co-worker and mentor to me. Sylvia is the chicest Mama on the left Coast, and has a blog, Sylvieinthesky.com. to show us all the way to live an easy, stylish, westside lifestyle.
Ready to watch? Here we go!
