Project Runway Season 8: Week 4

  Saturday, August 21, 2010 at 8:15 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,, 
First a couple of quick stories before the Project Runway recap.  First, I am very upset about the Gilt sale for Mulberry, etc.  I logged in right at 12 and the bag I wanted was ALREADY SOLD OUT! What is up with that! Now I have to wait until October 10th (the day before my 22nd birthday) to get it.  Here's the one I wanted (black)
Also, cute intern boy & I had a very awkward moment at work today.  We always look & smile at each other when our boss says something funny, so that's nothing new. But then intern boy was like "You guys want some gum?" So I said, "Sure!" & I moved my rolling chair to get closer to him so I could grab the pack & he walked closer to me.  While I rolled, I bumped into my bosses bag & he bumped into the garbage can, needless to say we were both a little clumsy, maybe he thinks I'm cute too? ;)  So yea, I got my gum, but it was awkward...I bet he didn't even notice the weirdness, but I notice everything.

Finally, on to my Project Runway recap! Another interesting episode.  This week they had to create an outfit inspired by a Philip Treacy hat! Don't worry, once there are less designers I will actually say something about the outfits and why I like or don't like them :p

  1. Love that polka dot dress in your liked section. Sorry you didn't get that bag!:( Cute story about intern boy, he probably didn't notice the awkwardness, boys never do!!;)

    Hope you are having a great weekend.SarahD:)

  2. Boys never notice those things!

    Loving the bag. I didn't even check out anything on Gilt yesterday other than the Tucker collaboration. (I didn't pull the trigger. I'm waiting to see it in person.)

    I really wanted the outfit with the orange skirt to win. (I forgot his name.)

  3. I didn't know the bags were THAT gorgeous! Now I want one. I can't totally see your frustration in missing out!

  4. Sorry about the bags I missed my favorite dresses from the Tucker collection as well.
    As for Project Runway, I love the look with the bunny ears!

    xoxo, jaz

  5. I haven't seen Project Runway yet, so I quickly scrolled through your review. Just has to throw my 2 cents in regarding the Target/Gilt sitch - I had the exact same experience. Although I was incensed at the time, I'm actually okay with it now because at least I'll be able to see/feel it (provided that I can manage to hunt it down at Target).

    xoxo, Ashley

  6. I'm sorry the bag you wanted was sold out :(

    Yay for Project Runway! I just watched the latest episode yesterday.

  7. Oh wow! That black bag is amazing, too bad you missed out :(

    As for Project Runway, AJ's outfit was my favourite and I really think it's Peache's time to go, she does the same thing every week!

  8. I really adore all the ones in the like section...especially the one with all the feathers.

    And yes, I've realized a lot of people--most often those of the male species--are oblivious to just about everything, so I wouldn't worry about it!

  9. I'm sorry about the Mulberry bag.

    And I want to hear more about "cute intern boy". He sounds... interesting.

  10. Sorry for this, but I can't help myself : if cute-intern-boy is going back to school soon, this mean that you don't really have anything to lose. Try something before he goes ! Even if it doesn't work, you won't see him again, so no akwardness.

    Have fun, Eris ^^

  11. How could the Mulberry bags already be sold out...I mean it makes no sense since you were right on time?? I'm sorry. I would like one as well.

    Ha ha ha ha what a "cute" moment with "your" intern boy. Am I feeling something there? LOL Sorry don't mean to be so darn curious. LOL

    Thanks for the pics from Project busy right now....I like all the images...but #2 gets an extra point from me!!!

    Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!


  12. so sorry you couldn't have snagged your bags, but well, there's always a next time. i think you can check server time so as to ensure you are in-sync with their server timing . . so you won't miss out on the bag.

  13. what an original runway :o !
    I hope you'll like my new article ;D

  14. I did the same thing! I wanted one of those bags so badly. My Target is too small, so we hardly ever get any of the new designers..... :(

  15. Ah cute intern boy sounds adorable :) Have fun!!

  16. Hahah! That's a funny little story with "cute intern boy". Hahah love that he has a title. I actually live on Long Island but go to school in Connecticut at, you guessed it, Quinnipiac University. I know of a few other CT bloggers, we should have a blogger meet up and one of the yummy restaurants in New Haven or something!!

  17. im always loving ur posts!!

  31. not sure if anyone already commented on this, but apparently Gilt opens up its sales early to VIP customers...those like A list celebs and super high for the rest of us...those people don't need the discounts anyway!
