Project Project Runway All Stars - Fashion Cents Runway

I'm so happy that Project Runway is back!

I don't even mind that there are new judges and a new mentor on the new All Stars Series on TV.

Because it means that Project Project Runway is back as well :D

Yay!

This week we were tasked with the unconventional challenge right out of the gates.  We had to make an outfit using stuff found at the Dollar Store. 

Now most of you who read my blog know that I'm a Dollarama freak, so I had tons of stuff to choose from already in my house.

I chose these two items:



A Hawaiian necklace and a bath scrubby.

And I made them into this:



I think she's very pretty.  Although maybe a little mummy-ish with that gauze from the bath scrubby wrapped around her like that.



It took some time to figure out how to get all those flowers to behave and stay on her.  I ended up tying it all together with thread knots.



I've decided that I'm going to be all about bows this season.  So expect tons of crazy bows to pop up in my styling and designs.



 And I'm going with this brightly coloured shoe for Aurora's lovely tiny feet.  Oooh isn't she lucky to be wearing a pair of shoes worth $595!  ACK!  Pretty though aren't they?




I have no idea what the judges will say because I don't know the new judges very well yet.  But I can see them thinking the bow in the hair in a bit much and that the wrapping looks a little like medical gauze.  They seemed to be okay with stuff that was fabric-ish this time, so I don't think I'll get dinged for the fabric flowers.


Overall, I think this turned out lovely.  And Lane won't stop playing with Aurora this week and exclaiming how pretty she is.
