Yesterday, I went up to New York City (for my birthday) and saw Wicked, which if you ever need to see a Broadway play and love the Wizard of Oz, Wicked is the way to go. It is my favorite. Anyway, since we were in New York, we HAD to stop at Mood, the fabric store. I am sure you're familiar with Mood Fabrics somehow; but if not, all of the contestants of Project Runway shop there for their fabric! So of course, my mom and I had to go there.
Some of the fabrics Mood has to offer
When we got there, I took a picture with their "Welcome" sign, which had the rolls of fabric and Swatch in front of it. If you don't know who Swatch is, Swatch is their dog that runs around the Mood store, dressed in costumes/funny outfits. Unfortunately, we couldn't find Swatch, but the manager did say that he was wearing a Mood shirt and a name tag. Poor guy!
Tim Gunn with SwatchWhen I finally reached the fabric areas, I fell in love. They have EVERYTHING you'll ever need for sewing/clothes there. Fabrics, zippers, buttons, sewing tools, mannequins, upholstery, ribbons. I mean they have everything, and you can easily get lost in the store. And they have three floors, which makes it even more hectic! As I walk up the stairs, I feel like I'm finally apart of something. Something that I like and that everyone else in the store likes. I see people in neon maxi dresses with the dreadlocks, and then the prairie looks, with the bun and the prairie dresses. I look and pull out some fabrics that I like, but put them back, because I have so much at home that I don't know what to do with! I looked and ran (power walk, I should say) all over that store to look Tim or Heidi, but then I remembered that they would have to close the store to have them in here.
I cannot get enough of Tim running around the store, trying to catch Swatch!
As we are about to say our goodbyes to Mood, I see that they have t-shirts in the back. And then I remembered. That in this Mood store, they sell "Thank you, Mood" tees. Fortunately, they had LOTS left, and I picked myself up one! They are a black V-neck (deeper than it looks) tops and are made by American Apparel. I tried it on today, just to make sure it looked 'super fine' on me, and it looks GORGEOUS! It is made of out 100% cotton, so it will shrink a little, but I am glad, because even the small is a little big for me! I grabbed the Mood bag, and kissed it goodbye. I knew the next time I would be in here is when I become a contestant on Project Runway, running around the store like a maniac.
