My Apologies to the Ross Store of Discover Mills…

30 Jun

So, as Sarah and Brenna would say, I did a thing. I did a weird, authorish thing and I probably looked like I was insane when I did it in Ross on Thursday. I went shopping for my character.
Almost everything I saw in the Junior’s department reminded me of my character Colletta Marx, the main protagonist in “The Story of Colletta Marx,” the new project that I will most likely begin tomorrow. Colletta begins her life in the upper class, but after a major revolution *spoiler alert* she is forced into hiding and then wears pretty basic country clothes. But the cool thing: I even found her wedding dress! It was totally weird, but it worked. And then I realized it looked familiar. Yep. West Side Story. Maria. That was totally her dress, but I am borrowing it. heeheehee. 🙂 So here are the pictures:

Look at that design! It will be homemade in the book.

    This is great. You should do the things more often. They are so great.
