I'm in fashion week! Well, I was and I didn't realize it

I did this print for a stint at Rebecca Taylor AGES ago! I never knew if they used it. Apparently they did ( PS- Rebecca Taylor, an amazingly sweet and genuine person). It's in her Spring 2009 collection. This day was a completely frustrating one career wise. To see this was fun but totally in contrast to what I experienced today.

Sure the First Lady is a doll but...


My own personal form of torture is googling successful people my age or younger to find out where they went right and how I may blatantly copy some of that magic. Today's victim is Jason Wu, the lucky 26 year old!!!! ( takes gun and puts to her own head) who designed our new First Lady's dress. Apparently fashion designer is Jason Wu's second career. The first was kick ass doll designer. If dolls had looked like this when I was younger I can tell you Barbie, that cheap trollop, would never have shamed my toy chest. Jem? Yes. Because Jem rocks but Barbie, no! Wu took a standard doll company and reinvented it into the fashion doll stand out of the industry.
And the lines are amazing. My favorite is the Japanese line takes straight out of the pages of Fruits.
And the Old Hollywood line? Could I get this is my size? They say that little girls shouldn't be taught to idolize dolls...but how about big girls like me?
