there's no place like home



Here's a sweater I made the other day, a cozy knit fleece number.
Inspired by the Alexander Wang's $550 sweater!
I also print screened a gold fish on the front, painted it and added a glittered fin
available at my store www.emmema.com

I wanted to make a list on the back of the sweater of all the endangered fish we should avoid eating,
make clothing a little more meaningful? would you wear that?
and my date outfit, boyfriend took me to see wizard of oz! So fun:)
"there's no place like home" funny because I want to move out so bad and then I watch this...!

March 20th

Can you believe one third of 2013 is over in ten days!
(and couldn't think of a creative title this week)
School, work and gym really speeds up time. 

I'm wearing my lavender bustier that I made, Gold Joe fresh cardigan and a black pencil skirt.
This was for CASS fashion show at McMaster University. Road trip with my girl!

Here is a dress I made for my client, the fabric is made out of Saari!
First time I ever worked with this light, intricate fabric, oh How lovely it turned out!
(first picture is out of muslin, second with extra tulle and tada) 
It's so amazing when you can turn someone's vision into a reality, 
what a perk to this job, what a self-fulfilment!

Now I'm still debating on what to do with my life, my options for September includes:
- school in UK 1 year degree, Waterloo or Toronto 4 year degree
- intern/ find a job in Toronto in fashion
- keep doing custom-made and my side jobs
- get my real estate license (make money and start my on line)
- flight attendant?
- last but not least.... a potential store!

Oh how does a girl decide!?
