In the Mood
Posted 2 February, 09on:
Mood fabrics was positively overwhelming. It looks exactly like it does on Project Runway. Fabric is crammed in every nook and cranny. It is also very expensive. On Project Runway, I always thought the $100 to $200 the contestants got for each challenge was a reasonable amount of money. After seeing the prices at Mood, I am very impressed with their shopping skills. Navigating that store in 30 minutes also speaks highly of their skills. However, if I ever went on Project Runway, I would spend quite a bit of time learning the layout and inventory of Mood Fabrics before filming the show.
The inventory was way more upscale than I need. There were lots of silks and wools. There was a good selection of solid colored knits, but I was not impressed with the quality. The printed knits were not very attractive. I wanted to buy something at Mood. I almost lost hope of finding anything truly special, when I stumbled across this rather unusual fabric amongst the eyelets. It has the open spaces, like eyelet, but I was positively smitten with the geometric design. I am not entirely sure what I will do with it. A simple summer top or a skirt with solid black insets, yoke, or something. It could also be the accent on a solid black dress. The price prevented me from buying yards, but I really think it will be more effective in smaller doses.
