People Watching

January 13, 2011 8 Comments

Bonjour! I considered writing this whole post in french, but then i realized it would be much more of a mess than when Garance tries to type her posts sans translator. (and i might add, much less charming) but yes, this illustration is inspired by Paris-loving blogger, Taylor of shut up, i love that who shares a passion for these ridiculously amazing Louboutin flats and suggested the only really worthy environment to illustrate them in was Paris. I haven't had the luxury of spending nearly enough time in Paris YET, but the few times I've been, one of my favorite parts is (croissant eating aside) people watching. (because croissant eating is one of my favorite parts of being in pretty much any city on earth) So yes, thats what thats all about. I tried to capture Taylor's tres chic bangs too. If only my forehead were a tad higher and i could have bangs too... sigh, i'll never be french. and I kind of like my structured satchel I dreamed up. Maybe I'll become a purse maker. What is that called, not a cobbler? A demain! oh yes don't forget to buy a print!

I know, my wrists are always so bare. Taylor, the inspiration for this post is amazingly skilled at bangle layering. I don’t know how she lifts her arms up, they’re so well adorned. But I’m making progress, I bought my second ever wear-all-the-time bracelet yesterday. This year is off to a fancy start

Looove this. Makes me think that I need more bangles! My wrists look so lonely with one watch and one bangle on each.

Well, my darling Inslee, you have outdone yourself here! This is SO chic. It makes me long for paris, pastries and my god, those Loubs. Who knew the ranting and raving of a crazy girl on twitter could yield such results! I hope you don’t mind very much if i just pop this right up on my blog, toute suite, as they say.

Regarding the arm candy… I mean, it’s a habit i developed early on that I just can’t shake. I have amassed a ridiculous collection of bracelets and sometimes I just can’t bear to leave one at home! As a result though, my work desk usually ends up looking quite fashionable by 10 am – you really cant type :)

Keep up the fabulous work, I continue to be one of your biggest fans up here in NYC, so do come back soon!

Love the satchel/briefcase hybrid! I wondered who designed it!

Haha! I know it’s seriously hard to type here at work when I have my bangles on. I’m sure it annoys my coworkers. Oh well! Taylor does awesome accessories. Yet another fashion blog I have to bookmark!
