But have you been following Project Run and Play online? The girls from Simple Simon took it over and they have such a great group of contestants this season! It’s two weeks into the competition and the list of outfits I want for my kids is quickly growing. That dress above by My Sparkle? So unique! And so adorable (check out the fabric tutorial for it on the PR&P site).
If you’re not familiar with the competition, it’s sort of like Project Runway for kids. 8 designers compete every week on a given theme. Readers get to vote for their favorite and the designers are also judged by 3 judges made up of….Katy of no big dill, Shannon from Luvinthemommyhood, and me!
This week the theme is Boy’s Week. You know I love that idea. And wow. How great are the entries? The judging is going to be hard (left photo: Running with Scissors, right: Skirt as Top). (above photos by Sweetie Pie Bakery).
The voting is open till Sunday night–see the right-hand column of the site.
And speaking of Project Runway….have you been watching the All-Stars season? Such mixed feelings over here. I’m not sure I like it.
Don’t get me wrong, I love me some Mondo. But I miss Heidi, I miss Tim, I do like Georgina Champan (she has good input), but I can’t stand Isaac Mizrahi (his personality, not his clothes) which is why I never got into The Fashion Show on Bravo. It felt like a cheap Project Runway rip-off and that’s sort of how this one feels too. Sort of. It’s produced by the same people but it makes me realize how integral the judges and their personalities are to the show’s energy. I didn’t know I liked Michael Kors, Nina, and Heidi’s mousy voice so much. I mean, you can’t take Simon Cowell out of American Idol without losing the show’s pizazz .
I’ve watched the first two weeks and will stick with it longer but I don’t look forward to it like I have in the past. Is this pregnancy brain making me nutso?
