Project Runway Review Season 14 Episode 12, Roll Out the Red Carpet

Hey Everyone!
Back with another Project Runway Review.
I'm soo happy that this season is almost over.
Boring!
Seriously and to be quite honest I only tune in for Kelly. 
I was over Ashley on episodes back when all she did is cry. 




Roll Out the Red Carpet

Heidi and Tim told the designers that they would be taking an inspirational trip to The City of Lost Angels. They  check into there rooms at the Best Western Plus Hotel and see a letter telling them to meet at the pool were Tim and Tammy Lucas, Managing Director, Marketing & Advertising of Best Western. Tammy goes on to tell them if they when this challenge, they will when 100 free nights in any of the Best Western Hotels and Resorts in the World.                 




Tim then whisk them away to another beautiful location in the Hollywood Hills. 
Where they meet Keltie Knight, Correspondent, The Insider and expert on Red Carpet Looks.
She going on to tell about the very first question they ask a star is, "Who are you wearing"? 
Keltie, then tells them that their designs are a platform to showcase the creations.  She also tells them that there are 3 things in her favorite design ingredients, Drama, Color and Fit and tells the designer not to play it safe with a$400 budget..                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                



Another picture of the cute dress.. 
Soo Cute...





It reminds me so much of Simplicity Lisette 1419, just a little shorter, sleeves added and less gathered in the skirt. The material was exquisite. 



This weeks guest judge was Christian Siriano.



                      
Ashley's dress was sexy and nice but nothing to write home about. 
I understood her concept but she needs more classes in structure. Her base has to be impeccable before she can design a dress like this.  
       Heidi loved it..            




             Her dress reminded  Emilio Sosa dress and under-structure was always on point.                  



Candice
Simple and nice...
Another Elvira little cousin dress.  
Judges thought the was sophisticated and safe, but not best dress. 


Edmond
Extremely too much of everything.
The judges are soo disappointed in him and his fabric choice.
They think it looked cheap, dated  and not fashion-forward.

GONE!! 
I really thought Tim was going to save him.


Kelly
Again she always knocks it out of the park.
She actually created her own textile.. 
When a person can envision and execute a design flawlessly, that's the make of a remarkable designer.


Winner!!! 

Congrats Kelly!!!!
She envisioned Katie Perry MVA's and that's exactly what I see, I think she had the wrong shoes on.. 
Zac and Nina are soo proud of her and how far she's come.


That's for stopping by and feel free to leave a comment, share and subscribe. 

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 Faux Leather Tote Bag

Hey Everyone! I'm back again with another DIY for you all. I don't know what it is but I'm really starting to love making handbags, clutches, and totes. I guess it's the faux leather that's inspiring me. 
Well this time, it's an easy Faux Leather Tote To Go! It took about 2 hours to from start to finish.

This will definitely be my everyday purse when the girls school starts and running errands.
 The faux leather was purchased on fabric.com for $7 a yard.  I only purchased a yard but received almost 2 yards.  Thanks Fabric.com.. 
 Looking at YT, again and I saw the cutest leather tote that I had to make. First, I made a mini purse, just to see if I could so it. Then I decided to make the larger version. It came out perfect..  My hubby even thought it was a new purse and didn't believe I made it. He inspected it as many Arabs do and I just laughed. He said. babe it's really nice.

I'm calling her Jordan.  I don't know why, it jus…

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…
