So, I was watching Unwrapped on Food Network and the episode was about chocolate. There is this New York Annual Chocolate Show that happens in November. They were featuring I think the 8th Annual Chocolate Show, and then I saw that the chocolate show has a chocolate fashion show too. And I saw this AMAZING blue dress..made COMPLETELY by chocolate. So they had the designer's name, but as I was racing to write it down, I forgot because I kept saying it over and over again, so I spent today looking for who designed it, I only had his first name that I remembered. I finally found it!
Oh, here's the Chocolateshow website if you want to view it! ;)
to go camping *sigh*. I don't want to go, but my dad wants to since we haven't camped once this year. I will miss the last swimming session :(. Not fair. Plus, I'll most likely be bitten by MORE mosquitoes. So, I will leave Friday between 3pm and 4pm EST, and come back Sunday, or Saturday if I can convince my parents to come back early so I can go swimming! Wish me luck. (At least I have my ipod. xD). Until next time...
P.S: Info about Designer Spotlight: In July, I featured Zuhair Murad. This month is Reem Acra. I will have a poll featuring some of my fav designers! Tell ME who you want me to feature!
Yes, I am sick! :( I think I have the cold. Yesterday, I felt horrible. Now I'm waaay better, it's just my throat now. That's the reason I haven't been on the forum or blogging. Don't worry though, I'll be at the forum birthday party! Until next time....
P.S :DON'T FORGET TO JOIN www.girlsenseforum.heavenforum.com!!!! The bday party that was rescheduled is TOMORROW, WEDNESDAY AUGUST 12, 2009!
Currently, we have a contest going on the forum (www.girlsenseforum.heavenforum.com) called Project GirlSense, hosted by Moose (afmoose95). Contests have to create certain fashions on the awesome website www.girlsense.com based on certain challenges. The semi-finals just passed, and we are now in the finals. For the semi-finals challenge, contestants had to create an outfit inspired by "Alice in Wonderland". After the conclusion of the critiques and scores, Chloe was eliminated. I recently interviewed Chloe. Here are some of her entries for various challenges for Project GirlSense:
"Alice in Wonderland" outfit
But first, before the interview, get to know a little more about Chloe!
Chloe loves fashion, music, and reading. She is good at matching colors and casual clothes. She likes different genres of music, including punk rock, but she just absolutely loves the Jonas Brothers, even if she's not a big fan of pop. " I do love the Jonas Brothers, but I don't really like pop that much. I guess they're just different, and that's what I love about them." She plays the clarinet and is learning to play not only the piano, but also the guitar. When she's not on the computer or listening to music, she likes to read. In fact, she states that she likes most types of books. She does hate sports though, "I'm not really a sports person, I'm terrible at every sport there is, and I don't even like to watch sports." She loves talking to people and making new friends. In fact, "...I always try to be friendly and nice, and I usually end up being great friends with that person."
I "sat down" with Chloe and asked her a few questions.
Lavvy: (1) What's your GirlSense username and how long have you been on GirlSense?
Chloe :My current account is called JBFanChloe. I had a lot of accounts before that starting in 2007.
L: (2) Why did you first join Project GirlSense?
C: Because I liked designing things in the fds, and I thought it would be fun to see how I do in a competition.
L: (3) Which challenge was your favorite? Why?
C:I liked Challenge 2, the "create a outfit for 2100" one. There are a ton of different creative things you can do for that. I also liked when we had to create an outfit with a trend from the past, it was challenging but fun.
L :(4) Which challenge was your least favorite and why?
C: I don't really have one least favorite, I didn't like the bathing suit that doubled as a dress one, because it was really challenging and hard to be creative. I also didn't really like when we had a partner and made our outfits be cohesive. It was really hard communicating, because when we say one thing, and your picturing it in your mind in can look different in someone else's mind. Plus, being cohesive was hard to make without being exactly the same.
L: (5) Which outfit, from all the ones you have created for PGS, do you like the best? Why is that?
C: Haha. I liked my 2100 outfit. I kept changing it in the beginning, and then I accidentally put a few different colored stain decos on a skirt when I only wanted 1, and it looked really futuristic. So, I cut it and it took me a few different times to get the look I wanted, and this was kind of challenging to because you couldn't use buttons. After I finished the outfit, it looked kind of plain, so I wanted something underneath it. I tried different fabrics, and then cut it and the outfit came out really nice.
L: (6) If after seeing the judges comments and score, if you were allowed to change and revise one outfit, which one would you have chosen? Why?
C: Probably the Challenge where we could only use beads, and the elegant bathing suit outfit. I could have read the challenge better, and added a lot more, and I could have created something really great, but I didn't. ):
L: Thank you for your time Chloe! You were a great designer and it was sad to see you leave. Remember, you should be proud of yourself for making it all the way to the semi-finals! That is a wonderful accomplishment. :D
I'm in a good mood, so I'm doing the Designer Spotlight today. I've decided that I'll do the Designer Spotlight every month. I have a lot of favorties, so it'll take a while! ;)
August's "Designer Spotlight" is on Reem Acra. She is one of my favorite designers.

Sorry for today's boring posts. I promised I'd post often, so here I am. Except, I'm out of ideas. You know, I'm just tired. I was going to do the designer spotlight today, but I'm lazy and didn't feel like it. So I might do it tomorrow. No, wait, I can't. I go swimming tomorrow. *snaps fingers* Gahh...If I feel better, then I'll do the designer spotlight today in the afternoon or evening. Until next time...
I ALWAYS have trouble not only putting on mascara-but finding the RIGHT mascara. My eyelashes are long and dark, so putting mascara on them is hard. And anyone who puts mascara on me also have a hard time too. So, I was browsing Teen Vogue's website, and I found this article. I found it very benefitial. Well, I didn't find the EXACT eyeliner that matched my eyelash description. My eyleashes are long, slightly curled, and thick, NOT sparse, and all I can find that fits my description is the ones for sparse eyelashes. I might try the Laura Mercier long lash mascara - but I have to wait until October for those! - and the Covergirl lashexact. Then, I'll write my own reviews eventually! :D
