Now that it’s actually cold out I am getting bored with taking Princess A’s pictures in the same indoor spots everyday. So I decided to buy some fabric and create backdrops in my apartment. Since I have no idea about fabrics I went to Mood Fabrics because I have seen the store on Project Runway.
When I entered I was overwhelmed. There were so many fab fabrics, buttons, sequins, and multiple floors… I just didn’t know where to start. I found a salesperson that helped me and even though I wanted to buy everything in the store I left with 3 backdrops and some buttons to sew onto my camera case. It was really hard to not buy more… I mean they even had Marc Jacobs fabric which I so wanted but it was too shiny for pictures.
I really appreciated how nice everyone was to me considering I had no idea what i was talking about. When it was time to cut the fabric they said “How many yards?” and I was like “Wha?????”. My cutter ,for lack of a better word, helped me decided how much fabric I needed so I could wear the highest heels in my pictures. He also told me that Tim Gunn is really nice and fab. I knew it! Then I told him about how I met Tim Gunn on an airplane.
It was really fun to feel like a fashion designer for a day and I can’t wait to go back!!!
