Norma..... and has Jillian been reading JDP for styling tips?

This shall be ever so quick a post,but I had to drop in and play catch up! First my AMAZINGLY TALENTED SIS won another Project Dollway challenge.This is her Norma Desmond tribute. Word.
Second, I knew I had backed a winner when I said Jillian was my heart of heart fave. LOVED last weeks challenge of updating outdated trends. Honestly though in the ever evolving world of fashion ,is anything ever really out? You will always find a person who knows exactly who they are in terms of personal style and NOTHING will ever look outdated on them.
...but back to Jillian...a girl after my own heart.....she was wearing overalls and picked overalls as her outdated trend to update!....and then she created an ethereal sheer vintage-y looking blouse to pair 'neath the overalls. Why its almost as if she had been reading MOVCFM ! I'm just kidding,but she definitely plucked a page out of my personal style notebook! I still love Elissa and Kit,but this week Sweet Pea also created a wonderful shaped garment though I truly didn't care for the color combo.
The menswear challenge the week before ,ugh!!!It might have been a wonderful eppy if they had not had a former athlete be the guest judge. He was a beautiful specimen of manhood,but I do not believe that gives him the street cred to choose a fashion forward winning garment. Loved Kits,it grew on me more and more,but I felt there were many designers that should have been at the top that were not even mentioned(Jillian being one of them).
Lastly an outtake from the press photos for mine and my baby's show. We are previewing on Thursday and I am buried with polishing and brushing up. 2 weeks is a VERY short period of time to put up a GIANT show like this. Its like a play AND a musical combined ,tons of dialogue and tons of music! I'll be visiting everyone next week after we open. I sure miss my bloggy peeps and hope everyones holiday season is going wonderfully!

OH MY GOD! My family and I play Project Runway Barbie every Christmas. It's, like, the highlight of our year. And we didn't even know about this! I swear, it was independent invention.

I usually despise reality shows, but I am hooked on Project Runway. My daughter and I were devastated to see Steven go. We just loved him and his dry sense of humor. We've shifted our love to Kevin, but we've learned not to get too attached!

Oh my Darling Dear! I'm afraid my little coronary event/brush with mortality means I'll be moving back to Texas permanently for up close and personal support while my ticker rehabs.

So soon the epistleoftimothy and JDP will both originate in the Metroplex. Is it big enough for so much creativity?
