I admit it. I had never seen Project Runway before last week. All of my friends always told me that I would love it, but for some reason I never got into it. It may have been because I worked Thursday nights for probably the last 9 years, or it might have been because I hate when people tell me what I will or won’t like, but now I realize I shouldn’t have been so stubborn.
Every Thursday my friend has a Project Runway viewing at her apartment. It’s all about watching the show, judging people and drinking. Sounds awesome huh? Well the first week was amazing.
On the commercials my friend went through my blog and judged all of my Dollar Dresses from last year. As far as a judge goes, she is brutal. I think she quite likes being blunt because she proposed a challenge that will keep her judging for the next 22 weeks. I will be following the challenges on Project Runway every week and wearing each new creation the next week.
If you didn’t see the season premiere, the first challenge was for the designers to make a companion piece to a previously made outfit they had brought to the show. For my first challenge my friends picked out the dress from Project Fifty.
For my companion piece I made something that also had a retro feel to it.
My judges were kind to me. They wanted it to be more fitted in the waist but liked it overall. I’ll actually wear this one again too, so overall it was a success.
We will see about next week though. It’s the candy challenge. Ugh.
