    Project Runway?

    I finally had time to watch last night and I was surprised by the winner. Obviously the front runner was too! I loved Margarita's show. They were bright and joyful. I can see wealthy women going to the Islands for vacation shopping in her boutique. The fish were so pretty and the beading work was so well done. Would I buy it? No, not my style, but I would enjoy seeing it. Aniya's was a mixed bag for me. Loved the denim looks and that gown was fabulous!!! The first 3 I didn't care for or think they were flattering to the models. The Little House on the Prairie dresses were weird.... something I'd expect to see in the Amish community. Brandon was Brandon. Kentaro's first outfit made me laugh!

    I thought Margarita's bomber jacket would have looked better with navy skinny long pants or capris. There can be too much of a good thing and the oversized jacket with the cinched shorts just had too much volume for my taste.

    I couldn't agree more!

    I liked Margarita, but she's starting to have an (unwarranted) "victim" mentality. Someone seems to have always done her wrong and that's why her garment doesn't get the appreciation she feels it deserves. Maybe $10k and a lot more time will "inspire" her. Kenya may not be a project runway super star, but I think she understands the plus size woman more than any of the others.

    Judie, I agree with you that Brandon over does the straps! Now Kentaro is copying his look. Although I was multitasking while watching, I don't think I heard Brandon make comments about being mad that his "look" was being copied. Did I just miss it? I really like Margarita's personality, but her dress this week was awful! It would have been a tough call for me on which of the two was the loser. I loved Kenya's dress and thought it was the most flattering and wearable of all. Ayanna is a great technician and I like her clothes, but the blouse could only be worn by someone who was a size 2. I'm glad Tim used his save, but wonder if he would have saved Kentaro. Tim told Margarita that he liked her dress, so maybe he felt badly that he had advised her to keep on track. Time will tell, but I don't think she has solidified her style enough to be the winner.

    Does anyone else enjoy the "Project Sammy's Way" short episodes? I think the concept is so clever. The editing is great and it brings such a level of humor and sarcasm to the show. :D I agreed with the judges this time on winners and losers. I expected a save too, but wonder how they're going to make up the time with two losers and one cheater departing at once. Wouldn't that leave the show ending two weeks early? :confused:

    SPOILER ALERT: if you haven't seen the show don't read further! At first I thought she was going to be able to wiggle her way out of the accusations, but there were too many witnesses and the stories were so consistent. In the end, she admitted what she'd done with such defeat in her voice, she knew it was the end of the road for her. I can't believe that she thought she could cheat and get away with it because "It was only a tank!" :rolleyes:

    I re-watched the show today. I didn't catch the first time around when Margarita was speaking in Spanish and they talked about her measuring pants from her closet. Now I know why they were so upset. (not to mention the blouse hack)

    She had to stand this way due to "camel toe". I think that was the part that made Zac uncomfortable. The string in the back is hiding the back wedgie.

    Project Runway?

    I think Brandon is a talented designer and a very nice young man. He's probably my favorite contestant, but I would NOT want anything I wear dragging on the streets like those side ties did. Nope... I've seen too many sickly looking people spitting out disgusting stuff onto the sidewalks to ever want to wear that germy garment on my body or into my home. My shoes barely make it in my front door! I get that it was a runway show, so hopefully streetwear would be trimmed a little off the ground. (Speaking of filth, I also see young women in maxi dresses that drag the ground. Yuck!) Maybe I'm becoming a germaphobe in my old age!!!;p I think Margarita's white pants were pretty awful. Zac said he was uncomfortable about the fit, but that poor girl with a big wedgie was the one that should have been the most uncomfortable!!! Ouch!!! The cinched legs with tennis shoes was a bad choice and someone else was right that the model was thrown under the bus when the judges began critiquing! :rolleyes: OK, rant over.... sorry...

    You're right! Everyone tries to help and be supportive of each other, but I wonder how long it's going to be before they have all had enough of what they called "tag team" work. Wasn't there a commercial about "cheating"? I think the other contestants have the right to make that charge about now. If each of the twins is using their particular skill set to improve the others end product, that is cheating!

    I agree. Shawn whining about the model being too curvy is insulting to most "normal" women in the world! She needs to be permanently put with a plus size model so that she will learn what real life looks like. :rolleyes:
  13. Navy is always my dark neutral because black is too harsh for my coloring. Its harder to find navy outfits that can dress up as well as black, so always on a search for classic navy tops. Chicos used to carry navy travelers, but that knit is too heavy to pack in my opinion.
  14. By the way, since you probably travel more than all of us put together, you could definitely teach us a few things about packing! If you ever want to put something together, I would love to read/watch/listen to it!! :D
  15. It sounds like a good plan to me! I'm not a dress person either and find that a nice pair of black slacks and a few tops will go a long way towards evening wear while travelling. A wrap and simple jewelry never goes to waste and brings it up a level. The shoes are always the killer for me. I'm not putting a pair of heels in my bag for a couple hours of wear over a month long vacation, but black ballet flats don't take up much space and are a LOT more comfy! Have a great trip! :)
