Some Quotes from some one who changed the world of fashion for women

a little bit from my report

Coco Chanel is best know for bringing to the world of fashion the “little black dress,” her signature cardigan jacket, and Chanel No. 5 perfume. She gave women comfort and casual elegance with her fashions: simple suits, dresses, trousers and costume jewelry.

Despite dating some of the most influential men during her time, Chanel never married. When asked about her refusal to marry the Duke of Westminster, she would reply, “there have been several Duchesses of Westminster. There is only one Chanel”. Chanel created loose fitting casual clothing made from jersey, and other materials used more typically for men’s underwear, liberating woman from corsets.

“In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different,” “People laughed at the way I dressed, but that was the secret of my success: I didn’t look like anyone.” Chanel

“Fashion is not simply a matter of clothes,” said Chanel. “Fashion is in the air, born upon the wind. One intuits it. It is in the sky and on the road.” Chanel

“The style is instantly familiar - those boxy jackets made from the softest tweed and edged in braid, the gilt buttons, the quilted bags. You hardly need to notice the CC logo to know that this suit or that bag is by the house of Chanel.”- Bel Mooney

“In fashion, you know you have succeeded when there is an element of upset,” Chanel.

“Dress shabbily and they remember the dress,” “Dress impeccably and they remember the woman.” Chanel

“Fashion is architecture: it is a matter of proportions.” -Chanel

“Fashion is made to become unfashionable.” -Chanel

“I don't know why women want any of the things men have when one the things that women have is men.” -Chanel

Need an entrusting topic

I relise no one will want to read my borring blog about my every day happenings so I need to pick a part of it and focus on it I gues the costuming and what I'm learning or what I'm working on.

I also relise the only person at this time fallowing me is one of my closest friends and has to listen to me moan and wine on a regular bases BLAH BLAH so yeah POSTIVE posts 98% of the time cause you know lifes, life

PB out

want very much <3<3<3<3


I think I have a taco obsession, its only day 2 though so I’ll wait and see. (going to get tacos again this time from the taco bell in the mall, hoping not to spill my Diet Cola this time.

I tend to forget o wear my glasses when reading and working on the computer which leads to headaches, I only got my glasses last year in my first semester. I think my body is already starting to fail me after pushing it so hard for 3 very intense cosplay years [ I’ve cosplayed for more just I was the only stitcher ( tehehehe technical terms) cutter, and well all around costume supervisor ]for the construction of anywhere from 9+ costumes, I’ve had around 20-25 costumes once with commissions. But yes I think its catching up to me cause I use wrists braces when doing most my work as well as now I have glasses and a giant bottle of Motrin good for almost all my aches and pains.

Today in dye class I did some tests with some break down tools and schmutz and schmutes ( saying those words makes me giggle)

It’s a rainy day which I love and am much more productive during, but I cradled my diet Pepsi ( I know it’s worse but I’m cutting out sugar) and tacos all the way home, there’s a small park on the route home today it was FULL of crows and a few seagulls so I held them even closer for fear they would attack. It’s like the Bermuda triangle of weird there’s always random clothes laying on the benches and a purse and back pack its always sooo creepy and I hate walking through it late at night

I shake my fist at you bus

Jan 24th
Woke up at 7 @.@ I have class at 830 and its an hour bus ride ….. I like being early so I can settle in get my tea and a bagel <3
I made it on time after being squished on the bus I didn’t get to type on the bus but I did read my Emi town GN ( graphic novel for the novices) I have a huge craving for hot sauce because of her breakfast burritos and with hot sauce
Dye class is beginning now <3


OK so I'm not a genius or even moderately tolerable when it comes to spelling and grammar, but if you find what I'm trying to get across with my words some what entrusting I hope you enjoy other wise keep it to your self SMART ASS not all of us are blessed with the same skills and mine are with fabric not words. I'll try and double check my blurbs before posting ( which is my biggest problem not double checking my writing)

I had something to say other then what I said above, but now I forgot now lack oh sleep and 7 going on 8 days straight technically I had a day "off" last saturday when I called in sick so... so yeah not much of a day off. So not including that day I have been going for 18 days and counting any who I got my Chanel right up done and the lovely Jordan will spell check and grammar check for me in the next couple days. Maybe I'll share it with everyone ???

(i'll included a image of something I've made or designed with every post <3)

Semester 2 week 3

So I have another blog confessions of a cospalyer but I wanted to post about my life in general so I opened this one as a side to that though I haven't posted on it for a while >.>.

Im in costuming for stage and screen right now at Capilano and I'm in week 3 as of tomorrow, right now I'm working on my early couturier report, I choose Coco Chanel <3 I like her as well as I want to get a head on things because I'm going to be super busy starting next month and don't want to make it harder on my self then need be. I will be doing a report on Alexander McQueen as well for my modern Designer.

Tomorrow I have Dye class <3 we had a blood work shop last week how to and what its like on set etc. I think were going to start on break down tomorrow not sure though. Did you know that dyeing is probably one of the biggest jobs for costumes on any show or film? almost everything needs to get dyed or a technical term is "teched" so it registers better on camera. I'll share lots with you if I'm able to keep up with this >.>

I think I'll try doing my journals on the bus in the morning with my net book ( its a hour by bus >.>) so I have little to no excuse other then I'm lazy :P

PB out

Realistic no ? I used Reel old blood (thats the name) and coffee grinds !
