Project Runway Premiere Review

I’m so pumped that Project Runway is back! It’s been gone for a while, and I’ve missed doing reviews. Here are my thoughts after the first episode. I’ve ranked them based on who I felt should be on the top first.

erin

Let’s start with Erin, who was the winner of the challenge. How cool and calm was Erin, right? Everyone including Tim was freaking out on her behalf, and she knew what she was doing the whole time. The color and textures are so fun, but she manages to make it sleek. I 100% agree with the judges that she deserved to win.

jenni

I really thought Jenni was going to be in the top. I love the styling of the braids and slides. The fur coat and painted two piece was so playful, and I thought this was something girls would want to wear.

tasha

Tasha has a very cool street style, and I loved the metallic pants she made. It was different from anything we’ve seen in a while, and I liked the simple top with the strappy back. The little purse was also adorable.alex

This was a little safe, but I thought this was one of the most well-executed and sleek of the looks. I like the different layers and textures going on here. dexter

I liked the styling here a lot. The concept is amazing, but I didn’t love the top portion of the dress. It was an unconventional challenge, and this was a runway piece so I’ll give it a pass. Plus, the long hair and earrings give off a boho chic vibe.

cornelius

People said this belonged in the bottom? This was so pretty and it was made with plates! It definitely was one of my favorite pieces. I don’t care how literal it may be. It was executed perfectly.

I loved the minimalism here. It’s sleek, well-designed and the back is so beautiful. This is a cocktail dress I would totally wear.

mah-jing

This was a safer look. It’s good enough because it’s made with a mashup of materials and it works.

nathalia

The more I actually look at Nathalia’s look, the more I actually like it. The silver material is gorgeous and the fur sleeves and sleek ponytail make it a solid look.

kimber

This was an okay dress, but it had the effect Kimber was going for. It’s a cute little New Year’s Eve dress, but it’s a little too plain and boxy for my taste.

sarah

Sarah needs to chill because this little two piece she put out actually worked out pretty well. laurence

I had such high expectations for Lawrence, and I was disappointed that she didn’t make anything that great. At least she admitted it though.roberi

This really shouldn’t have been on the bottom. It was a safe piece as well, but there were plenty of other safes ones that has way less creativity than this one. I’m on Heidi’s side.rick

If Brik just made the top into a black crop top and did a little top knot instead, this look would be fine. But the romantic top and hairdo doesn’t work with these pants. I like Brik, so I hope he pulls it together.

ken

Ian deserved to go home. The fringe is pretty, but when I saw the Polaroids, I was instantly thinking it would be amazing and creative. This was so disappointing and it did deserve to go. But good for Ian for standing by it.

linda

This was my least favorite look. It was so plain and basic. I personally thought this one had the least amount of design, and it was paired with those flats that didn’t really match.

PLL Fashion 7×09

I loved Aria’s style in this episode. Here is some of the fashion from the liars, as well as a link to my recent review: https://mytrendingstories.com/article/pretty-little-liars-season-7-episode-9-review-the-wrath-of-kahn/

Maje ‘Bacary Jacket’ – $325.00

Aria’s jacket is so pretty. It’s a nice reminder that they’re not that much older, and they can still wear these fun pieces. This sporty jacket is in such a pretty green color. They have a much cheaper one at Forever 21 right now for for $32. Here’s the link: Cheaper Version

AllSaints ‘Anya Embroidered Sweatshirt’ – $136.00

I loved Hanna’s pullover here. It’s such a nice little sweater to wear whenever because it’s casual but slightly more elevated because of the design.

Equipment ‘Slim Signature Silk Shirt’ in Ink Multi – $113.52

Emily’s plaid shirt was super pretty and I wasn’t surprised to see it was silk because it looked so soft when I first saw it on Emily. I also love the darker color combination here.

Maje ‘Vermeil Reversible Jacquard Jacket’ – no longer available

This boxy jacket and skirt combo was also very pretty with it’s pattern. I also like how it looks like a quilted jacket, which adds another dimension to her classic jackets.

Missguided ‘Satin Cropped PJ Set’ – $16.00

This pajama set is definitely a steal for those who want it. It’s in such a pretty lilac color. I’m sure people were dying during this scene from all the tension, but I couldn’t help but notice how pretty this set was.

Back to School Stationery Haul

So for today’s post, I’m blogging about the stationery that I purchased for school. These were all a steal with the highest priced item at only $6.00. All of these were from Target, TJ Maxx and Marshall’s, so check out their products. Also, The shirt I’m wearing is from Primark and was only 6 pounds.

I’m obsessed with stationery, and I love these Thank You cards. Right now, I’ve been really into metallic prints and these gold polka dotted cards are simple and cute. These were $3.99 from TJ Maxx.

FullSizeRender (8)

This Target candle was only $3.00, and I really liked the scent. I like more simple scents, but this one is a nice mix of coconut and citrus, and it’s not overpowering either.

FullSizeRender (9)

These pencils were $1.00 and they have the days of the week printed on them with the pink one simply saying “weekend” on them. I thought there were quirky and cheap. The cosmetic bag can also function as a pencil case and it was only $5.00 by Ashley Mary.

I got this simple notebook from Marshall’s, and it was $3.99. I loved the quote and color, and it’s the perfect size to carry around to jot down notes.FullSizeRender (11)

These were all $1.00 from Target. I like to clip my papers and notes in bunches, so these paper clips were an essential. The pens also had a fun design on them, so I picked those up as well.FullSizeRender (12)

I also use these file folders to organize my class notes and work papers so these were perfect because they came in a set of nine. They were $5.99 at Marshall’s and I loved the short sweet sayings written on them.

This little painted tray was $2.00, and it was super pretty. I thought this was great to throw jewelry on, or to put keys on. FullSizeRender (14)

Finally, I got these little portraits for $3.00, and I loved the inspirational sayings on them. The designs were also diverse with prints such as stripes, polka dots, flowers, and watercolor. I hope you liked this stationery haul. Please like and subscribe if you liked this post.

Zara ‘Flowing Shirt with Bib Front Embroidery’ – $49.90

I liked this preppy summery top. This looked like a Spencer top, but I liked that Aria wore these with bright jeans in true Aria fashion. I would wear these with distressed jeans for a more casual look.

Rebecca Minkoff ‘Page Cold Shoulder Sweater’ – $148.00

I really liked how cozy this sweater looked. The cutouts on her sweater matched her ripped jeans, and somehow Troian still makes Spencer have a very preppy vibe.

I loved Riley’s little ruffled top with her bell bottom pants. It’s super preppy and romantic with the ruffles. She always rocks her bell bottoms, but I really liked the ruffled top paired with it. Maya also wears a staple in her criss cross top, but she pairs it with this boho skirt.

This Topshop jacket is super pretty for Aria. I love how architectural this jacket is with its boxy structure.

Aria is known for her main staple, which are leather jackets, but she opts for an interesting Zara skirt. I love the patchwork with the different muted colors.

Topshop ‘Gingham Ruffle Shirt’ – $60.00

Hanna surprised me with this textured top. This top has a lot going on with the flowers and the gingham print and the ruffles, but Hanna pairs it with a classic jacket. It made for a fun outfit with a sharp look.

Forever 21 ‘Galaxy Print Athletic Jacket’ – no longer available

So when Emily and Pam were on their run, I noticed how cute this jacket was. It’s sold out, but who knew Forever 21 had such great affordable athletic wear.
