3.2.10

i make me LOL.

So for those of you who read my posts, you know a little about me. For example, I like to look back at childhood (see last post). The only thing better than looking back, is LOOKING back (practically literally). I'm doing a mural for school and blah blah blah, the moral of the story is I was looking at my old stuff. SO FUNNY. But I had to share this because it seems kind of appropriate for a "Fashion Blog" (which I feel is an overused term, but whatevezz. I'm guilty of having one.)

Dear Fashionistas,
From a young age I have always loved fashion and art. I think that these pieces proves this. Meet my fashion illustrations at age 9 (ish). I think that the design aesthetic really shows how I'm a true designer. I really hope that you can see that my designs are beautiful. I want to wear them ALL. And dress every celebrity in these outfits, too. I mean, they are just so beautiful. Let them speak for themselves.
XOXO Love,
Lexy.

I don't know what's better: the mid-rift checkered top, the asymmetrical pink bow top with matching bell-bottoms, or the fire-y outfit. They're all pretty hot.

^ Oh, and do you see the squiggly legs and short arms. SO BEAUTIFUL.

I am now getting technical. Please note that the models are now interacting. I think this really illustrates my drawing skills. Not to mention the BEAUTIFUL bridesmaid dresses (I believe they were) and HAIRSTYLES (those buns MUST be on the runways this fall).

^I'd really like the dress with the swirls and the slash down the middle for Prom. Okay. Thanks.

This is my personal favourite. Since it's all Photobooth-y and reversed, I will translate for you. The left chick is "Cool Dude" (I mean, obvz. Hot pink striped shirt with some belly. Mhmm, cool.), while the far right is a "School Geek" (poor thing, I even labelled her wedgie). And the chick in the middle in simple flares, layered shirts, and a tee that says cool? Well, she's "In Between." Never made the cut, poor girl.


So, as you guys can tell, I was very talented. I think that I will be producing this outfits, ASAP. I'd really like you all to pre-order them because I know they will all be a hit. Especially my mid-driff tops.**

I was tagged by theTrendyDwarf and Diane for the Happy award (YAY! Thanks guys; it made me HAPPY. Hahaha. Okay, not pun-ny.). I know I'm a fail at responding to tags, but I thought this would be fun to list some things that make me happy. I'm pretending I'm all quirky and such and avoiding cliches, so don't think I'm heartless for not including friends and family.
1. The above stuff.
2. Cheery old people.
3. Innocent questions by little kids.
4. Value Village 50% off sales.
5. Mean girls that you can look and be like "Um, you're dumb."
6. Talking to random people you'll probably never talk to again.
7. Subway cookies.
8. Laughing at my unathleticism.
9. Going to bed late and still having energy.
10. Magazines coming in my mailbox.

There's a million other things, but I'm limited to ten. So there they are. And it's really not super significant things that make me super happy. Because otherwise that's just sad. Just clearin' the air before I get some "zomgyoursoheartless" comment.

What things make YOU happy?!
Oh, and how many of you would like to pre-order some of my age 9 fashion designs? They will go fast, I warn ya! (like, duhhh.)**

Thanks so much for stopping by! I will respond to comments this weekend.

**Because I'm quite confident that someone will NOT read my words/ is very slow (no offense) and thus think I am being serious, I am typing this to say YOU CAN LAUGH AT MY "FASHION SKETCHES." I spent about 20 minutes doing so. THEY ARE NOT REAL. Well, they are. But not from present-day. If I get a "Nice drawings xx" I will LOL. And not with you, but AT you.. My little drawings suck. I mean, no. They're beautiful...

YOU make ME LOL! Hahahahahahahahahaha! But seriously. I like how I feel I can comment your blog anyway because we are just cool like that. I mean we are like friends...I think? Anyway, thank you for reposting my award! I like how you add your twist to it and ask your followers what makes them happy. I wish I had as many faithful followers that leave so many wonderful comments! Anyway, I remember I used to draw like that!...I still do. LOL! If that were your actual collection, I wouldn't buy it. "I mean, no." I would buy them. "They're beautiful..."

I wanna find my old drawings! :o(

I'm dying over you actually labeling "wedgie". Poor girl geek, indeed. I guess @ the age of 9 you were honing your comedic skills, too. ;o)

"Magazines coming in my mailbox." Oh, that is one of the most magical things to me. I adore your drawings - they're so cute. Far better than mine - I used to draw people with the biggest heads you would ever see!! :)
