Apple of My Eye.

Monday, April 18, 2011

This past week I traveled to New York City with the Fashion Design program at my school. 

We toured FIT and Parsons.

Saw Phantom of the Opera. (Soo good.)

Visited a few different designers. This guy was amazing, but totally knew it. ha, don't they all? 

This lady owned her own hat shop in Soho. The shop was the cutest thing ever, filled to the brim with all different sorts of books and custom hats. I totally loved her. She was so eccentric and positive about life.

Shopping at Mood! I ended up finding some incredible lace fabric which I'm pumped about.
Oh and speaking of Project Runway, I didn't get a picture of this but I totally ran into Gretchen (from season 8) on the street! She was walking her dog and the minute I looked at her, I said "Hey your.." and she smiled and started booking it. ha, she obviously loves being recognized.

By the end of it I was tired and ready to come home, but now I wish I was back! Isn't that always how it is? Oh well, hopefully in two years time I will be. 


  1. this. this is amazing. i'm so so so so so so so very jealous. PARSONS! you definitely should attend parsons. you have the skill for it!

  2. that looks like THEEE trip of a lifetime! i was looking for lace fabric EVERYWHERE so my mom & i could make my prom dress... should've known they had it in the big apple. :) you're too cute girl.

  3. Extreeeemmmely jealous! I would die to go to new york and have a fashion program at my school. We have nothing. Just sewing 1 and 2. whoo since I'm such a good seamstress. Anyways, glad you had fun! (:

  4. Aw that hat is super cute on you! I would love to check out all the cool fabric at Mood. Can't wait to see what you make with the lace fabric. What a fun trip!

  5. Looks like you had a wonderful time :)
    And that hat is cute! Is it a souvenir from your visit to the milliner?

  6. Wow...that looks like such an amazing trip! :) And I'm jealous that you got to see Phantom of the Opera! I was in a production of it about two months ago and it was the most incredible experience ever...I'd love to see it on Broadway.

    Anyways. :) I've been following your blog for a while and I don't think I've ever commented, but I love your blog, I love your clothing designs, and you're so cute! :)

  7. what an AWESOME opportunity. you look gorgeous and I love all the photos you got! can't wait to see what you come up with for the fabric you bought ;)


  8. Looks like a wonderful trip!! I guarantee you will be there in 2 years :)

  9. what an exciting program you're involved in - a trip to NY and all...WOW! omg, i laughed so hard and had to refocus my old bloggin' biddy eyes b/c in the 2nd pic i thought your gf was Miley Cyrus (the one in the purple skirt). baha!

    all you girls are adorable and look on top of the world with happiness overspills. great to see!!!

    love the pic of you wearing that darling hat. i agree too, whenever i've had the fortune to visit that city it's been the people there who really made the time awesome. i don't know why it's got a bad rep, i've always found the community to be kind and full of insp. happy week sweetheart! ♥

    pea ess: thanks for the info about your high fives with Ry-Ry...pretty sure i melted into a huge mushy pile on the floor....swooooooooooonsssssss! xo

  10. You need to post a picture of the lace fabric you bought! What are you going to make with it? I'm obsessed with lace...

  11. So amazing! Looks like so much fun! It's funny, we were talking about temples in seminary the other day and for some reason I had NO idea there was a New York temple, I guess I had just never heard of it before! You look so gorgeous in every photo!

  12. Your school has an amazing fashion program, what a trip!

  13. Thank you so much everyone! Your comments always mean so much to me.
    Lucy, I totally was going to but I'm actually using it to make a dance dress so I thought I'd wait and show it when it's done. :)

  14. Thank you so much for your sweet comment! I'm so glad I'm not the only one creeped by those freaky CGI babies. After seeing your comment and hearing you were from Utah I had to stalk you, naturally. And I have just one major question for you.
    How on EARTH are you so lucky to be in high school and get the chance to go to NEW YORK for a field trip and tour Parsons and FIT and talk to actual designers?! You my friend, are living the life.

  15. Gretchen is a B. She should not have won.

  16. you look so adorable in your hat!!!

    ah-- i was in NYC just recently-- too bad it wasn't at the same time or else i would have demanded we meet ;)


  17. Hi! I'm a model from MM and found your blog just now. I love your prom dress! Can you tell me the name of this hat shop? Thanks!

  18. Hi Valentine! The hat shop is called just that, The Hat Shop. Here's the address:
    120 Thompson St, New York, NY 10012-3722


  19. Thanks Haylee! My sister and I are going there tomorrow so she can try hats on and I can get a book about making hats. Maybe I will blog about my attempts? Who knows!
    Congratulations on your graduation! I'm sure you will go very far with whatever you decide to do!


  20. I think the only white watch is nice.
