my portfolio

Due to the fact that I tend to hype up a situation so much that I hype myself into being too nervous sometimes,
I'm trying to not think about my interview with the FIDM director tomorrow.
>_< I finally finished the portfolio I'm suppose to turn into them yesterday at like 12am One day, procrastination is going to come back and bite me in the ass. Here it is:

Leave some comments for me, wont chu?

oh Marc, you loveable you

Soooo I was trying to take a picture of my outfit the other day and my camera died on me.
so excuse me if I don't post much of my outfit until I get a new camera... which will be awhile cuz I am broke broke broke.

anyways after reading an article on Marc Jacobs in Rolling Stone.
I decided to take a look at his recent spring line.
ahh i could see why everyone loves him so much.

A traditional silhouette but a different use of fabric mixes. very interesting collection. Heard clashing patterns are in this season but personally I believe you should wear whatever you want.

I want this little sling bag for some reason. looks so unique.IF you get a chance, I recommend reading Marc Jacobs' recent interview with Rolling Stone.
Shows a total different side I didn't know he had.

Well until next time fashion lovers....

starving for creativity

my dream is to be happy doing what I do and be the best at it too. I want my name up in lights.
I want to be the best fashion designer I can be."

that's basically how I answered my counselor who was interviewing me.
I'm applying for FIDM, the fashion institute of design and merchandising in LA.
She nodded at me when I answered her question of what my dream was.
haha. I bet she has heard that answer like a zillion time so she humored me with a nod.

She also scheduled me an appointment to meet with the director of fidm in oc to have him take a look at my sketches and determine if I'm admitted or not.
I know I shouldn't be nervous because I heard they have a high percentage of admittance.
but still....
so this next week, I'm going to be sketching a lot
and choosing out my best.
Ahhh no pressure at all.

One thing I've done is set up what inspires me and what I want my theme to be.
I love shapes and bright colors so I'm going to build on that.
Here's a piece of my inspiration board...

i'm like pee in my pants, got knots in my throat nervous right now. jeeza

The eye of the storm

The other day, I was looking through my cellphone planner to see what stuff is coming up next week and I realized that I am indeed in the eye of the storm this week because next week is packed. I'm going to be so busy, it's giving me a headache.

An counselor from FIDM called me the other day and I have an interview with her next tuesday.
I really don't know what to expect so I don't know what to do to prepare for it.
so right now, I'm just sticking with my plan of charming the hell out of her. lol.
Then I have midterms all week
and then I have to take a vietnamese placement test next thursday and I'm hoping to score high
enough to pass.

Ohhh... maybe I should start studying.... nahhhh. hehe
I am indeed the mother of all procrastinators.

Anyways, I'll worry about next week when next week comes. :) that's my mentality right now
so I don't get too stressed out.

right now, I'm dying to buy some shoes... that's another good way to relieve stress. :)

IT rained this morning

yay. i think fall is finally setting in in Riverside.
much appreciated but i wish it was sunny and chilly
i don't like gloomy days much. makes me sad and miss home
Gotta go to work in about 2 hours.... sigh. I wish someone would just give me money so I don't have to work at all. but that's impossible.
I've gotten pretty good at setting the self timer and running in the right spot. You can't even tell I was running huh?
