mood board

Yes, in case you were wondering, I am a lame blogger.
I am so lame in fact, that I have to resort to posting my schoolwork on my blog.
Very uncool.
Anyhow, I was being the studious student that I am and was working on this mood board for one of my classes and I couldn't help thinking how perfectly the colours coordinated with the rest of my blog! Nothing groundbreaking, but some lovely images nonetheless from my jampacked inspiration folder.
And so, for that fact alone, my little mood board has made it onto the blog.

As usual, it is in pastels. Surprise, surprise.

the arctic wolf

Although I should really be working on an essay, instead I am enjoying a leisurely night of falafel, sketching, and book reading (just started Tess of the d'Urbervilles... finally...). Sometimes I really do take procrastination to new levels of brilliance, if I do say so myself.

Anyways, I have been keeping busy applying for competitions, so at least I can say that. Here's my sketch for the Telio Competition. This year's theme being the Great Canadian North, I chose to look to one of my long standing fascinations for inspiration: the arctic wolf.

Telio's fabrics this year included a cute little white faux-fur and a cream jersey rib-knit which I have decided to use for a body-con fur trimmed dress. I plan on including tan leather straps and tiny gold buckles to add some edge to all that white. And of course I had to throw in my pal the peter pan collar for some girlish charm... you know how it is.

Do you like my wolfie?

*just realized my technical says acrtic wolf, not arctic wolf! ha!
