Project Runway rehash!

2013 is the year of television Armageddon. My beloved Office went off the air, Dexter is winding down its final season, and Breaking Bad is starting its last season this Sunday (!!!). Those are all in my top 5 favorite shows ever. To make matters worse, my husband and I have been rewatching LOST for the first time since it went off the air 3 years ago, and we're finishing it tonight. I predict swollen eyes and a headache in the morning.

But at least I still have Project Runway! And I guess the universe knew I needed more Heidi Klum (who doesn't??) by putting her on my TV three times a week with America's Got Talent.

What was I talking about? Right. Project Runway. Sorry. I'm a little off today because it's AB's half birthday. She's 18 months old and it's making me feel weird. This week she started walking around the house wagging her finger and saying "no no no". My little baby is now a toddler! Sniff.

But on with the show! Spoilers to follow...

Things I loved:


Braden's psychic powers. And his proposal was sweet, if not...odd. I think it's the first proposal I've ever seen where the proposee wasn't even there.

Top Gunn. Hehe.

I was fascinated by Sandro and Zac's exchange on the runway. It was like seeing someone talk back to a teacher in high school or something. So much secondary embarrassment but I couldn't look away!

I kind of also loved Ken being blunt with Sandro. He WAS "out of order" and did need to shut up. My husband was watching with me and he wondered why there weren't any burly security guards like with all other reality TV. I guess they aren't necessary on a fashion design show haha.

Things I hated:


Nobody mentioned Ken's bow tie tattoo?!

I know they HAVE to do this early in the season, but it's a drag when they only focus on a few designers each episode. We've barely heard anything from half these people.

Tonight's reason why I love Tim Gunn:


His critique with Kate was cute, they were so collaborative and I think he'd be an excellent instructor.

Favorite garment:


I think I liked Kate's the best (Rate the Runway photos here). Something about HER still rubs me the wrong way, but I liked her color palette, the pleating on the blouse, and the subtle inclusion of the tie motif.

Least favorite garment:


So many of these were so bad. So bad. I actually thought Sandro's was the worst, so I suppose it's fitting that he r-u-n-n-o-f-t (O Brother Where Art Tho reference anyone?).

Best line of the night:


"I wrote 'Octopussy'." -Zac

I think it was Sandro's time to go (obviously he agreed) but Miranda was wrong, I think Sue might have been out instead of her if there had been an elimination. How did she Sue spend $400 on jersey?? I guess I'll assume it was silk? By the way, you MUST visit the Mood website and look at the Shop the Look feature. I've found it to be a great learning tool to see the garments on TV, then look at the fabrics online. Check it out and happy weekend! Hubs and I have a fancy party to attend tomorrow, and I can't wait until next week to share the dress I made.

There is a beautiful dress available today on Craftsy for Free Pattern Friday. Go here to see it!
