Project Runway rehash!

I know this is a post about Project Runway, but I HAVE to ask...do you watch Breaking Bad?? Where will you be on Sunday night at 9?? If the answer is anything other than "watching AMC with a whiskey and Coke" then I don't think we can be friends anymore. And seriously, if you don't watch it, get on Netflix and start at the beginning. And then kiss the next month of your life goodbye as you binge-watch until your eyes fall out.

As for PR...WHAT just happened?!

Spoilers to follow...

Things I loved:


The color schemes of Dom and Bradon's fabrics.

Justin's cute crush on Miss America.

Things I hated:


Helen's inability to get over prints was hard to hear, even in small doses. I can't imagine how annoying it was in the workroom. While I don't agree with Alexandria that she needs to "be a man" (uhhh...she's allowed to be a woman) Helen should have known that working with prints would likely happen at some point. It's Project Runway, if you can make a dress out of wallpaper then a print shouldn't be so terrifying.

Tonight's reason why I love Tim Gunn:


Even though I'm not a Helen fan, I liked Tim's pep talk with her. He always seems to know when to be hard on someone, and when to be encouraging.

Favorite garment:


I liked Dom's dress, although I would never wear it. She definitely used the print the right way in the spirit of the challenge and deserved the win.

Least favorite garment:


Kate's was SO BAD. I wish Micheal Kors had been there. I'm not always on board with her asthetic (a bit too fairy-princess for me) but this didn't even seem like her work. Alexandria's was a hot mess and looks even worse in still photographs, I can't figure out why she was safe. 

Best line of the night:


"I'm so perplexed by this, I don't even have the words to express it." --Tim


The double elimination of Alexander and Kate was so weird. It felt very scripted, like they had decided ages ago that there would be one on this challenge, regardless of whether or not it was merited. Ken got how many passes on bad designs, Kate makes one (admittedly terrible) misstep and she's booted immediately? Kate deserved to show at Fashion Week, especially over Justin. I just don't get it.

The whole family is off to a wedding this weekend! AB gets to experience her first overnight with her grandparents, and the hubs and I get our first night away since she was born. Can't wait! Have a great weekend y'all!

  1. I've been watching PR religiously for years and I have started to believe the conspiracy theorists in the past two seasons. They all seem predetermined. Ken's tenure is a mystery--oh wait, he's so dramatic they needed to keep him around so they could say it's the most dramatic season yet. Alexandria is the real mystery. I predict she will go next week or after putting together a collection, but not make it to the final show.

    Last season, I was baffled by Patricia, seasons before it was Anya and Michael Costello. Scratching my head, but I'll keep watching!

    1. I'm with you, it's starting to get harder and harder to ignore the conspiracy theories! Timothy at the beginning of this season, Ken staying, Kate out...it's very weird.

  2. So, 2 things; first, I have been killing myself trying to remember WHO in my blog roll does the fantastic PR recaps and it's YOU!! Yay!!! :)

    Second, OH. MY. GOODNESS!!!! I had never watched Breaking Bad and now my husband and I have been watching it, starting at season 1. We're almost done with season 2. Not only is it a great show, as a chemist it just warms my heart! LOL!!! :)

    1. Aww thank you! I love writing these recaps, so I'm glad someone likes reading them :)

      I wish you luck on making it through BB without any spoilers! I kind of want to go back and watch it all again because it's just such a great show.
