I have just released the lookbook for my latest collection and I hate it.
It isn’t nearly as good as my last collection – it isn’t getting as many likes and people aren’t contacting me.
Who am I kidding to think I can even be a fashion designer? That I can actually make money off this? That people will actually wear my clothes.
I am heading down a negative spiral!
Of course I know how unhealthy these thoughts are and that I need to be kind to myself – but the anxiety is just taking over.
Literally blogging from KrsipyKreme
I’m operating a one woman show here – designer, seamstress, marketer, manager, accountant and cleaner.
Basically spent my whole weekend creating my lookbook for my new collection and working on my website.
A went away and he is back today 🙂 I can’t wait!
Just stepped in and placed an order and now I have the money to pay for medical aid this month. Thank you!
Money’s too tight too mention, I fell in the mall, I have period paid.
This day sucks.
Resort collection used quite a bit of money…
Today I bought fabrics for my new orders and my bank balance has now slipped into the negatives. Thankfully a very spontaneous woman popped into my studio today and she wants a skirt so thats a tiny bit of money at least. But its not enough to cover medical expenses, pay for my storage unit – where all my furniture from my marriage is just stagnating and sucking up my funds, also the my phone, gym… and so on.
I have 7 days to get in new orders and make money?
So I’m sitting binging on mini Swiss rolls and browsing through my room looking for things that I could potentially sell for some extra cash?
Holding thumbs when the resort collection is released on Monday, I get lots of traffic!

Please follow on Facebook and Instagram all you lovely followers that keep me going 🙂
The photographer was absolutely incredible today and we worked so well together. The model was fantastic.
Well its 11am and my model was meant to come see me at 1pm.
She just cancelled.
And I mean cancelled today and cancelled for the shoot tomorrow.
Its exactly 22hours until the shoot and I still have to hem 2 pairs of pants, 3 dresses and put buttons on 2 dresses and then steam all the clothes. And also find a new model – Fantastic.
But guess what. My previous model from my last shoot is available thank god. And I’m going to use her again. She is perfect, reliable and enthusiastic and I know my clothing fits her incredibly well. It would be child’s play to search for a new model at such a late stage and just pray that she is good and fits into my clothes.
In all honestly – perhaps this was a blessing.
This is my life until the shoot is over on Saturday.
I’ll admit it – its tough but I am loving it.
Blogging has been taking a back seat.
Resort collection has consumed me and I am designing and sewing in my sleep even.
That awkward moment when you wake up at 3am and sketch a dress quickly…
