Spring Wish List!

I've decided I'm not a huge fan of most of the spring fashion this year.  Everything seems to be black, white or tan.  I feel like I'm constantly looking at a 90's Gap commercial.  Don't get me wrong, I like the styles and pairings of certain things, but couldn't we have a little color?  So after sorting through a lot of very drab and somewhat blah clothing, these are what I found.

Forever 21
  This store in particular had nothing but black and white.  It was really ridiculous.  I already plan on purchasing the blue vest.  It was the one thing that made me go "OMG!"  I also adore the shoes.  They may be next weeks purchase. :)

Urban Outfitters
This was probably the most disappointing of all.  I love UO and this is all I could find.  4 pieces!  Sad. The cuff bracelet is fantastic though and is on my list to purchase these week once bills are paid. 


 Ruche is fastly becoming my new favorite shop stop.  I loved a million things.  Plus their prices are completely affordable.  Everyone should check it out.  www.shopruche.com 

Mod Cloth

    had by the best selection for spring in my opinion.  Too bad their prices are bit on the steep side for my budget.  But I still love them.  Their clothes are amazing.  One day soon I will be able to shop there on a semi-regular basis.  Fingers crossed. :)
So this is it.  I'm hoping maybe as we get farther into the season that more color is added.  Below are todays outfits.  I'm wearing shorts for the first time in YEARS.  I had a pair of jeans that ripped and thought to myself, why not?  Who knows it their make it out this summer (I doubt it) but maybe.

I'm also working on a new project.  I've been getting more and more into sewing lately.  I'm trying to expand my talents and knowledge of garment construction.  I've got a million designs swimming around in my head and I want to be able to make them real, but I've got a lot of learning to do.  So my newest project is working with stretchy fabric, ie. jersey knit.  It's an extreme pain working with this material because it's super touchy.  I've started, stopped and took the stitches out several times now.  But I'm going to finish it and someday it will hopefully look like this...

Oooh, I love ModCloth's items the most, I'm thinking. They have the perfect items for spring! UO's catalog for spring was pretty amazing though! Good luck with sewing! I figured I'd let people like you with motivation do the designing.. I'll just do the wearing. Haha!
