I’m breaking from regularly scheduled programming to share this with you all. One of my very best friends Jason teaches a few 5th graders. He, being the pal that he is, shares my blog with them which I find both honoring and hysterical. One of his students drew these and asked that he show them to me.
Let’s give the student her due. Clearly, they have a knack for drawing tech flats—a highly sought after skill.
#1. Lanvin Esque, let’s take a look here—1 shouldered, possibly draped, very remiscent of Alber’s jewel tone looks.
#2. Simple, definitely an LBD vibe going on. The shape is very Valentino (the new Valentino that is) or Prada when she’s feeling minimal.
#3. This ensemble is definitely a doozie, more 90’s throwback than any of the others. I could see some Jil Sander or maybe even Miu Miu (Spring 2011) in the skirt and as far as the top goes…I’m not quite sure but it has kind of a Betsey Johnson vibe happening.
#4. This looks like it’s got several layers fabric happening, possibly different materials…has potential for a sort of Meadham Kirchoff vibe, no?
#5. Some 80’s throwback here, possibly a nod to Marc by Marc or if in polka dots Marc Jacobs collection. Maybe even a little Mary Katrantzou in that structured sleeve.
#6. Wrap dress? The fifth grader knows their Diane Von Furstenberg
#7. With that neckline and what looks like some body cutouts I’m thinking Versace, Christopher Kane (Spring 2011) or maybe even some Balmain action.
#8. Colorblocking galore on this piece, very Prabal Gurung/Thakoon.
My grade for this assignment? A+.
Textbook has lead to some great things—fashion shows, a couple random projects and a lot of new people but I gotta say…this is the best so far.
i had a few requests come through for violet baudelaire from a series of unfortunate events. glad i did, because all the baudelaire children are pretty awesome, maybe i’ll do klaus soon. anyways, all the baudelaire kids have special talents…in the case of violet she could invent anything and essentially solve any problem, awesome. her parents were adventurers so you can imagine that she grew up in a fun household and was quite the interesting character. of course, the stories details the kid’s battle with the evil count olaf who will stop at nothing to get at their orphaned inheritance. i recommend.

matchmaking is a tough business, just ask emma from…well, from emma. after one successful match, she took herself to be an expert. as the story unfolds, the barely 20 year old emma attempts at matching up the lovely people of highbury. as you can imagine, in a somewhat midsummer night’s dream situation, love matches get crossed and all around hilarity ensues. in the end, all is set right and even emma, who swore she’d never married finds a husband. leave it to jane austen. anyway i always thought of emma as a light-hearted and charming character…naturally, her style would reflect that.
