A bit of nostalgia

I love Atlas Sound. Now that I am back to school and don't have a lot of time to work at Dandelion Vintage, I listen to this album a lot. It makes me miss my job and Tracy. She told me about this band and opened my eyes to a lot of things and I just love talking to everyone who works there. So, this is a bit of a nostalgic post... I hope you don't mind. 
I have been busy with school starting for the past week, and it feels good. I am currently designing a short film being shot in the beginning of September so I had three fittings today that actually went quite well! I am getting excited to see everyone in full attire! The film is set in the early 1930's. I will be gathering up the last tidbits of their costumes in the next week and then I am acting as an assistant costume designer at the University of Illinois (my college) on a show called, "Battle of Angels" by Tennessee Williams. Ever heard of it? 
Anyway, this week has been exciting! I am also working on another project that some of you might have caught onto on facebook or if you follow me on twitter. I don't think I am quite ready to post about it on my blog, yet.. I'll let you know when the time comes.. it's a very fun time for me....
love, polly

What an amazing dress! I love it! Sounds exciting working on a film... I have always wanted to get into the film business but so far I haven't really put any effort into it... Im thinking about some acting classes though!

I love those pictures of you. You're so pretty!

Working on the costumes for a production sounds like so much fun. I've always wanted to go and be in a theatre group one day because I enjoyed it so much when I was in high school.
