What NOT to Wear!
I had BIG dreams of paper-piercing my way to the new HOT COUTURE ANYA.
The mixture of Dear Lizzy, Sassafras, and glitter did prove to be hot .... a HOT mess, that is! LOL!
Sometimes you just gotta laugh at what you make. Man, she looks ridiculous!
I thought combining the skirts/ tops of:
1. Ballerina Anya (top, tutu)
2. '80s Anya (skirt, leggings as part of skirt now)
3. WS Dahlia (top and feet)
4. Can-can Anya (not sure what her name is but she's a dancer with the feather in her hair. She makes up the head and arms of the image here).
I even layered the clothes here to make it look realistic....hehehe. But it didn't look right at all. Why, oh why did I also decide to add a ruffled headpiece along with the feather??
And the other day, I caught the tail end of an old "My So-Called Life" episode (you guys remember that?). Claire Danes' BFF there, Ray-anne, had a colored strip of hair, and I was, unfortunately, inspired. That's where the pink highlights came from :).
So, instead of chucking my HOTT MESS Anya into the garbage, I thought I'd just change the title of my card to "What NOT to Wear." Just like the TV show. Instead of the Project Runway inspiration that I envisioned.
I thought I'd still enter my card into TGF's Farm Fashionista Challenge. I'm sure that Marie and Jessica will get a laugh out of it. :) :) :)
The CS are from Bazzill and Neenah. The PP are listed above. The tag is from My Mind's Eye, and I thought this design book stickers from Jolee's is perfect!!
I love that tag -- I used to write down what I wore / would wear back in college so that I wouldn't wear the same outfits twice in one month (DORK!).
Come to think of it, I also do this when I go on vacation... but this time, it's to make sure I have enough clothes, LOL!
Anyway, I hope I made you smile! Thanks for reading this. I think I would've had better luck if I had drawn!
