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!
Halle-freakin-lujah!!

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.
Duh.
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??
