1001 Sheets: A Fashion Show

Last weekend, Eric and I attended a local fashion show put on by Kendall College of Art & Design. It was called 1001 Sheets: A Fashion Show and the entire collection was made of paper. I was pleasantly surprised by how well constructed and wearable some of the pieces appeared! Eric and I stopped by to check it out and take a few pictures. I've been going to this fashion show since I went to college there, and so I always enjoy seeing the different themes they come up with each year. I remember when I was still in college, they had a carnival themed show. I loved it! Local fashion is such a treat. If you have any blogger get-togethers or fashion shows in your city, no matter how big or small, I say go! Support your local fashion events.

I've been on a roll with outfit posts, right?! Honestly, I'm trying to play catch up. All winter I've just felt so behind. I have so many items I've worn that I haven't worn on the blog yet. So I just forced myself to get a jolt of energy and start taking more pictures whenever possible. I upgraded my vintage Coach purse to my new bigger mustard tote, so I can start carrying my Canon with me everywhere I go. It has really been helping me grab more pictures - not only of my outfits, but my surroundings too! I also really want to get better at photography - technically and just creatively. I'd love to even take a class or workshop this summer, so if anyone knows of any good ones in GR, let me know!

Eric and I ended up getting there a little bit late, so we had standing room in the back, but he managed to grab a few pictures of the show. Coming up this week, I have a giveaway with Pima Doll, a restyle of this little end-table I finished, a diet recap (yes, I promise it's going up this week!) and a dining room tour. I'm excited for some different content other than fashion coming up! Also, can I just say I honestly planned an outfit for a post in August? How insane is that? As soon as I was done, I called myself Tiek the Freak. It's true!

The art department at my school did "trashion" shows with outfits made out of garbage/recyclables. Several of my friends were involved in it many years ago. I didn't know them at the time, but I've seen pictures and it looked really neat.

Those shoes are adorable! I'm glad your doing lots of outfit posts lately. I really enjoy the inspiration.

I love this look so much! There's something about how delicate and ethereal that pink looks combined with the small dots and looseness of the kimono that really works well.

The fashion show sounds cool. Clothes from paper?
