Ok, for sure he was not the best designer of the lot. His dress was not the best but come on!!
On this particular challenge there were worse outfits.
Did they not see the horrible tippee dress???

Is it me or is Heidi's German accent becoming a lot stronger?

Exactly. And I'll add :
Since the beginning I have the impression Seth Aaron is the jurys favorite. Maybe his clothes show a certain mastering of tailoring in real but come on!!!!they look cheap. Not edgy, let alone stylish.

I always try to focus on the positive (except last time with Jean-Paul!!)and deliberately omit what is not worth it, but this time...Just give me 10 bucks I'll dress better at the Salvation Army than with SA's tacky poor colour schemed pieces. Not with a million dollars would I have my daughter -if I had one- wear his coat. that it looked like plastic.
As re. the accent, you're right Réré...naja....Ich bin sprachloss...

School uniform

In a previous life, I worked in a school where kids had to wear a very strict uniform.
I turned the school badge into a brooch and gave it a little makeover.
I don't know if it would go down too well with the headteacher ...

I like....

Spring is on the way..

Maybe harder to believe in some places.... but looking at our pear tree it is well on its way here!

Jean-Paul, we need to talk.

Going to Target this morning with a much sceptikal mind about what to espect from JPG's collection (as previoulsy posted), I found myself falling in love with a unsual sarouelmeetsmariniene dress.
The colour was nice, even the attached scarf that loops from the decolte to the backbetween your legs (sounds wierd I know) and lifts slightly the middle to make it look like a sarouel intiguided me in a good way. It looks more like a tunic on me and worn on jeans...oh my, it is breathtaking..........but.
Alas, BUT.
The Dress is is polyester. And, there is only one single item in my wardrode made of polyester. a rare exception. I simply don't do polyester.
I wish it was cotton, but no, after staring for minutes at the tag, the words didn't change....
Sorry but that won't work for me Jean-Paul.
And neither will your funky nylon pink white black dress. Come ON!!!! Nylon?
To make it short : I wasn't planning on finding something for me. But am disappointed for a reason I didn't anticipate....the item I did like and would have looked terrific on me in terms of cut was such a technical miss.

Too bad!
Total nay!

No way Jose!
Jean-Paul, you've let the side down!!
Am not sure I am into this 'designer for high street brands' thing.

You've seen Apolo Ohno during the Vancouver Winter Olympics but had you spotted him back in last season of PR?

Looking back at all their creations for the challenge, the overall quality is excellent to me. not always on target maybe but nice work!
