Mama Loves Mondo

Apparently, all my free time has been spent watching Project Runway rather than blogging. Has it really been two weeks? That's not like me.

It seems the impossible has happened and Spencer's schedule has become busier. I put the crazies to bed by myself most nights. Three meals a day alone with the kids can be pretty wearing on a girl. But if something good can come out of this (besides a husband with a PhD and a job he loves)... it's my discovery of Project Runway (online). I just needed something to keep me company while I sewed Halloween costumes. And now I'm hooked. I know I'm like 8 seasons late coming into this, but we don't have cable. It makes me want to learn to draft my own patterns. I should take a class...with my loads of free time and all.

My favorite contestant is Mondo. Hands down. He is everything I love about fashion. He can mix patterns and prints like nobody's business. I love it!

See Mom. No Nylons.

I haven't been able to get this outfit out of my mind. I even searched the fabric store yesterday looking for a large, bright, hounds tooth print in hopes of replicating this look. No luck.

Does anyone else watch? Do you share my love for Mondo?

Plus...it's looking like Spencer's campout this weekend may be canceled. We haven't both been home on a weekend in a really long time. Keep your fingers crossed for me.

Oh I REALLY hope that the campout is cancelled! I can't even imagine! You are amazing. (And I've been waiting to hear word of Halloween costumes from you... I can't wait to see what you come up with this year!)

Katie,

I too have been watching way too much project runway and not doing all the things that need to be done. I LOVE Mondo too.

Ooooh girl! project runway is my fav show. Has been for years! you have to watch all the seasons. This season I think actually has some of the worst talent out of all of the seasons, but I do love MONDO!!! he is awesome! he is going to win it all!

I love Mondo's stuff!! He is creative and kind of spunky and I love what he does with his colors and prints. This outfit is but far my favorite, but I really loved the fabric he designed and the pants he created with it, they where awesome.

LOVE IT! What was up with all that IVY drama last week? I like Michael C, am I the only one? Mondo is totally going to win it all, I'd be surprised if he didn't!

Jen said...

I hope you can replicate this outfit. I would so love to see what you do. And I'm thinking since you want to go back to school so bad you really should go into fashion. You have a knack for it.

Lisha said...

I agree with everything Jen said. If any one can replicate that outfit it would be you! I hope you have a great weekend with your hubby. :)

Mondo is my fav too, me my mom watch every week! I can't stand Gretchen, everything she makes is so ugly!! I love this outfit too, I love mashing patterns that wouldn't normally go!

Cynthia said...

Mondo is going to win. I just can't figure out why Gretchen is still there.

Alicia said...

I love love love that show! I watched every single one of them and I, for the life of me, can't figure out WHY GRETCHEN WON! I was rootin' for Mondo the entire time! I just love his stuff. No doubt he will go on to get his own line.
