Exhausted

Yesterday was a really long day and I have the blisters to prove it. I went shopping and thrift shopping and it was really fun but I took longer than expected and wasn't able to take pictures of my outfit. I'm going to try again today. Anyways I wanted to share with you some of  my work I've had to do for school. Right now I'm taking fashion history so I've had to do different time periods and put an example of each word given to me and modern comparisons of it. That's why you'll find modern pictures that somehow don't fit in.

My first collage was about two trends for this summer. I decided they were bright shocking colors and cat eye sunglasses. 
 
This one was about what inspired me. High waisted pants, the city, ocean, camera, and the picture on the right is actually my mom. 
My mom was wearing high waisted jeans here. Fashion always repeats itself. 
Egyptians fun fact I found out. Cleopatra is not Egyptian she is actually Greek.
Greeks
This one was not an assignment. I just did it for fun. I picked my favorite dresses
Romans 
How crazy are those shoes in the right? I can't believe people could actually walk in those. It makes my high heels look like toddler shoes. 
Renaissance. Another time period where I'm glad I wasn't alive. Those stomach corsets were crazy and the dresses? I really have to admire these ladies for being able to even stand in these. 

I always love feedback so feel free to comment. As soon as I get more done I'll post them.
