It's Back, Episode 4 Project Runway Review..

Hey Everyone!!!
I was soo wrong when I thought you all weren't interested in my views of this season's Project Runway. I'm sorry about that, it won't ever ever happen again.
It goes to show me, if your not leaving comments doesn't mean your not looking..
My Sincerest Apologies!


 Project Runway
REVIEW
 Fashion Flip


Episode starts with everyone sitting in their rooms talking about what happen on the last episode.
Amanda's still not understanding what the judges want, just like all of us are being totally confused with the judges and their horrible decisions..
All Shade!!! 

It's the MARY KAY Challenge.
Tim introduces us to Global  Mary Kay Makeup Artist Luis Casco and talks about Iconic Designs such as the pencil skirt, the wrap dress and the trench coat just to name a few. 
The designers had to take the Iconic Designs, modernize and bring their own interpretations to it.

They also have to work with Luis and come up with an Iconic Makeup as well.
The winner will have an exclusive Mary Kay ad inside of Marie Claire Magazine and when $5000 in cash. Go-head Mary Kay!!!

Everybody's off to their 1st trip to Mood after sketching..

$250 and 45 minutes to shop.
Give me $250 move out of the way and I'll show you all the damage I can do..
One day I can't wait to just pet, Swatch!! 
It's my dream.... 
LOL!

I'm soo over Blake at this moment that I'm not discussing anything about how fake he is.. 
But I Digress..

Focus Mrs. Atallah!
Here's MY opinion on the Runway...  


Candice leather dress was sexy but that coat was not what I was envisioning when we saw it back at Parson's. It had more of a flared bottom, almost peplum like and I HATE peplum but I though it looked better than what we saw on the runway.

As you can see the Model didn't like it either. That's why she took it off.
LOL! 

Top 3 and SAFE


Lindsey 3 pieces were BORING!! 
I just don't understand any innovation at all in the skirt, top and long swing jacket that was 2 sizes too big for the model, very dis-proportioned.   
She really thought that she could win..
I think not!!!! 

Bottom 3 and SAFE


Gabrielle's dress was a Monstrosity, all that time complaining about how much you hate your dress you should have been sewing it. I think worrying got the best of her because of last weeks critique with Amanda. Still, it was a straight dress, 2 panels, that's it with a little pink netting on the shoulders and that didn't come out right. The hem was all chewed up the top was a mess girl, you should have gone home.

I give you this, that jacket was really cute. I, myself really liked it, but the judges didn't.

Bottom 3 and LOSER


Alot of the ladies in my sew group really liked Swapnil's dress.
Heidi fell in love with it, she always like to be naked. 
 I can tell you I like the front more that the back. 

Top 3 and SAFE



Amanda's throwing  SHADE at Candice about her confidence and her mediocre style.
Sweetie worry about your boring dress.
Y'all already know GOD don't like ugly and he isn't to keen on cute.

What kind of wrap dress it this mess? We have beginner sewers in our groups that will sew circles around this ugly dress.

Bottom 3 and SAFE


Ashley's dress was nice, but nothing great to write home about.

SAFE

The judges thought Blake's dress was the best thing since sliced bread.
I thought is was very confusing and Swapnil should had never helped me. Even Tim was confused by it in the sewing room. I would never, ever make a dress like this for anyone or myself.. 

Top 3 and WINNER!!

I didn't like Edmond's Jacket at all. It was too Vampira liking to me. 

SAFE

Jake made a 2 panel very short sequin dress with a #9 on it. 
 Are we on a video shoot or Project Runway. How in the hell can he be safe?
You tell me...

SAFE


I'm not going to lie. I don't like Joseph's Grandma Sookie Soul and you already know how I feel about peplums, but I thought this was the best dress by far.  

SAFE

Kelly's take on a white tee was very cute.
 I understood and love her concept and execution.

SAFE


Laurie's top looked like a Altar Boys Rob or a Painter Smock cut in half.. 

SAFE


The first time I saw Merline's jacket I liked it, but doing further investigating. 
I found it really confusing, just like I feel about the judges this week.

SAFE



This week the Designer's and the Judges confused the hell out of me.
This week everyone failed at being innovative and modern.
When we watch PR we want to be inspired and amazed, instead we got boring and bland.

Thanks for joining me..
Leave a comment, only if you like.
LOL

Until Next Time...
PR IT CHIC!!!!

New Orleans Style Homemade Yaka-Mein!!
If you're not form New Orleans, then you probably will not know what this is. But if you do, then here's the recipe for "Yaka-Meat". Yaka-Meat originated http://www.noladefender.com/content/bowl-mystery. Link above to make a long story short..  
Ingredients below:

2 pounds of stew meat beef 3 or 4 quarts of water 2 cubes of beef bouillon cubes Black Pepper to taste Salt to taste Garlic Powder to taste Onion Powder to taste Kitchen Bouquet 2 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce Half Bottle Soy Sauce Half Bottle Any Louisiana Hot Sauce Long Green Onions Boiled Eggs

 I know it looks a little gross but believe me, the outcome is delicious!  Put Meat, Cubes,  Seasoning, Kitchen Bouquet in a big pot, let it simmer for about 5 minutes or until the beef is browned. Add the 3-4 quarts of water and half bottles of Worcestershire and Soy sauce. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium and let cook about 2-3 hours or until beef is tender enough to fall apart.

DIY Jil Sander Inspired Pyramid Mini Bag.

Hey Everyone!
I just received this faux croc leather in the mail yesterday and as soon as I looked at it, I know exactly what I wanted to do. I'd been eyeing Jil Sander's purses and clutches and knew I had to make something inspired from her beautiful collections.   
It took about 3 1/2 hours to make and was really easy once you get your pattern down,,
She's not very big but big enough for your phone, makeup, money and keys to fit in just fine..



Here's another view of her..
I need to make one in every color..

Not even a 1/2 of yard of faux or vinyl of your choice.

From the Beach to the City... Sewing! Tunic time...

Cynthia Rowley - Simplicity 2854..Well this year my family and I are taking 2 trips in one... We going to the beach and back home to New Orleans (my hometown).. I want to make a couple of pieces that I can transition in both places.. Well I think I found something else.. I love tunics.... In blogs to come I will take pictures of tunics I've sewn through the years.  
Simplicity 2584 View B: 

This pattern was one of my first pattern that I purchased... years.. I was too scared to try the yoke (neckline), that I put it in the back of my patterns..I went to Wal-Mart and purchased this Home Decor, Linen-like fabric..  I couldn't pass up $3 per yard, so I got 3 yards.
 Advice: Read your patterns and when you can't understand them. read them again.. I have a tendency to look and skim through patterns. This one had me praying.
Below: I love how it came out.. I know I'll be making a few more for the trip, some in contrasting colors... I can put flip flops on for the beach and we…
