Alright folks. Its March 16th. That means that yesterday was the last day to enter the very first CSTAWNY Contest, and guess who won? Uh. No one. Yup. There were zero comments. Now, this should be something I'm embarrassed about, but instead I just want to point something out. I get that it's uncomfortable to put yourself out there on a blog everyone can see. I do it all the time though and it's totally chill. I plan on having another contest soon and I'm really hoping one of my readers takes interest in it. Thanks so much for reading!

So.... I'm a bit of a let down. No posts in a couple of days. Weak. I promise I'll start posting more regularly next week though! Today however, I'd like to discuss fashion myths. These are things we have long been told are "fashion don'ts", but in reality are totally chill. Does that make sense? Sure it does.
Take a look.
Fashion Don'ts You Can Actually Do
Brown and Black: This has long been labeled as a fashion faux pas, but really, does it even look bad? No. It looks like two nice colors you just happen to be wearing at once.
White After Labor Day: I have no idea where the idea this was wrong came from, but it's completely illogical and lets be real for a second here. Do you honestly even know exactly when Labor Day is? Nah bro, nah.
Turtle Necks: Okay, so let's make it clear that plain white turtle necks are just never okay, even for layering. However, if you can rock a patterned turtle neck with skinny jeans, go for it.
Overalls- People. Overalls came back. Roll up the bottom, sew 'em skinny, do something to modernize those denim beauties and you can definitely wear them.
In the end, it's all about what you feel comfortable in. Don't ever let someone tell you what you're wearing is wrong. If you feel confident, then who cares? Maybe you're starting a new fashion trend. Just go for it.

Every seamstress and well, every person in general, will learn at some point that things don't always go how they want them to. This is especially true for people who sew because a lot of times your projects don't turn out as planned. (Take my Owl Pants story for example) Sometimes you get four pant legs instead of two, or one arm hole on a dress; not that I'm speaking from experience or anything .... The point I'm getting at here is that you can't expect things to turn out how you want them to. And yes, I am referring to a specific happenstance. I heard back from that German fashion company regarding my suggestion of writing a blog for them. They said that at this time there just aren't any available spots for a guest blog. I'm not bitter about the situation, they're a phenomenal company that does amazing work and I didn't really plan on getting the gig anyway. Basically, I have accepted rejection and am currently hoping for an opportunity in the future. The reason I'm sharing this is because I'm hoping someone who has recently been denied by anything or anyone will see that it's definitely not the end of the world. I am a firm believer in the idea that when one door closes another door opens. I also believe that everything happens for a reason and if it's meant to be it will happen. Can you think of any other relevant clichés? I think I about summed it up.

I'd like to apologize for the lackage of posts on Friday and Monday. I know that some of you have come to expect a post every weekday but unfortunately I was too busy to write. I'd like to update you on my latest dress though. Aside from a few minor glitches I have yet to work out, all that's left to do is create the hi-low mullet skirt. I'm very excited to finish and wear this creation ... even if I'm the only one dressing up at the Sadie Hawkins Dance. Yeah, I found out it's probably not a formal dance... but I've been working way too hard on this to not wear it. Well as usual lately, I'm busy and have to go! I can't promise there won't be some more missed post days, but I'll try my best! Also, don't forget about the CSTAWNY contest!
