An old sock, a rusty chain and a tablecloth...

It's April and I couldn't be happier.
The weather is warming 
(though it's supposed to snow here on Friday. Really??)
The birds are chirping
Flowers are blooming
and there are only FOUR weeks left of class!

For those of you who have heard about the fashion show that Jake and I had to participate in, I have pictures (well...A picture...) to share. 
For those of you who have no idea what I'm talking about, 
here's the run-down.

Once upon a time, I needed a humanities credit, 
so I took humanities 1010. (Seems obvious enough, right?)
Yeah. Apparently "humanities 1010" doesn't count 
towards a humanities credit, but "dress and humanity" does.
So this semester I enrolled in the "fashion class" as we like to call it.
And because I thought that this fashion class was going to be an easy "A," I coaxed my husband into taking it with me. Since then I have had to apologize profusely on a number of occasions, because not only has this class had more assignments than any other general education class I've ever taken, it is at EIGHT-THIRTY in the morning, three days a week.
Sorry, honey. :)

Anyway... One of the assignments was to create an outfit out of reused or recycled materials to sport on the runway at a fashion show. Thank you to those of you who came and supported us (and helped us to get the points we needed to get full-credit by having 10 people attend...ha.). 

Each designer had to create a look based on a certain genre of music. 
Jake and I chose hip-hop.
But when we started trying to come up with an idea, 
we realized we know nothing about how hip-hoppers dress.
All we could think of was MC Hammer, wife-beaters and gold chains.

So... that's what we did. 
And I'd say we did a pretty good job!! ;)

The ensemble is made out of old socks glued to a tank top, 
a rusty swing set chain latched to a gold-sprayed can 
and a tablecloth made into parachute pants.

Watch out, Mr. Hammer, you've got competition!

P.S. Isn't my husband looking sexy after losing 35 lbs??
