Fabric Shopping at Mood

So I went to Mood! Straight from the airport, to be precise!

Trumbelina advised to go there with a game plan, explaining that she had a better experience when she went with "anal-retentive reference card with swatches and yardages for specific projects." Well, I wish I had taken her advice! I found the size of this place and the choice of fabric just... overwhelming! I walked up and down, between the wool and silk, the linen and the jersey... back to the wool again. I finally decided on some black bouclé with lurex highlights for a Chanel-style, three-quarter-sleeves jacket, as well as a ponté in a flattering colour for my skin tone (although the picture bellow doesn't do justice to its true redish gray colour). 
Other than that, I was calmly minding my own business when all of the sudden I see a big yellow afro... wait a second, that's... Kooan Kosuke from Project Runway season 10! Apparently, he works at Mood.

And a few minutes later, another celebrity!

  4. Ah!!! You are so lucky you got to meet swatch! Jealous. I can hardly wait to see what you make out of your purchases (although, if you are anything like me, your picks will sit in your stash for years while you are paralyzed with fear to cut them). I also smiled when I read that you went there right after the airport :-)
