Time to change the calendar again! Does anyone know the designer of this gorgeous gown? I had the website saved forever and of course lost it just in time for me to post this. typical. This dress is designed by the talented, Joe Challita!

Happy November! This illustration was inspired by a beautiful shot of Olivia Palermo. But then again, every picture of her is a beautiful one. Sometimes its hard to look a year into the future when I'm illustrating the calendar, but I think this one worked out rather well. Everywhere I look, I see capes these days!

Happy February

February 01, 2011 2 Comments

Yipeeeee time to change your calendar again! Last year I started off February by telling everyone how I don't like the month in general. and I am here today to say... February, I'm sorry. I was being closed-minded and judgmental. You really aren't so bad. I mean, what is so bad about one last month of the depths of winter to make sure you got proper use out of your furry black hats and awesome heeled boots? And if it were all hot and sunny out, girlfriend above wouldn't have needed to travel with her entire fleet of suitcases. Any jetsetter worth her salt knows bikinis don't exactly fill up a valise the way extravagantly over-sized sweater can. And don't get me started on traveling with multiple pairs of OTK boots... might as well get a steamer trunk. Plus, would we love the spring nearly as much if we hadn't frozen through those extra 28 days? I think not. February is alright by me. In fact, from the rosy vantage point of this moment in time, I dare to say, I haven't really met a month I don't like.

So if your anything like me and my friends, you've spent a pretty hefty amount of this week grievously discussing serious serious issues. issues like what kind of tights are you wearing? is it lame to wear flats to a party? is renting the runway dangerous? these are the issues that shape the week before new years eve. its all so silly but these things must be  decided and it is best if they are decided in unison with your team of advisers. anyway, good luck deciding if you are going to curl your hair or not. (i haven't decided yet... eek!) and have a wonderful wonderful time celebrating this weekend. i'll see you all next year! whoooseee excited to crack open my 2011 calendar??? and if you haven't bought one yet, there is still time! hint hint, nudge nudge... cheers! if you like the illustration above... buy a print!
