Do you follow Cusp (@cuspbynm) on twitter? You should! I just created their new twitter icon. Isn't she cute in her DVF dress and Alexander Wang clutch?
I'll be in Georgetown this weekend and may just have to swing by Cusp and spend the check they sent me for this illustration. I swear, I should have been an exotic bird illustrator or something. Then maybe I'd be able to keep a pay check. Every time I illustrate for a fashion company I end up on their website, or in their store, and what do you think happens next? New shoes. Vicious cycle.
Guess who's in the Washingtonian Gift Guide this season? Me!
I'm in there with DVF, Tory Burch and Bobbi Brown to name a few. So I'm pretty excited to be in such stylish company! You can also see the gift guide online here.
The "inslee" shoe by Jacques Levine also made the guide! Washingtonian is just inslee-ing it up all over the place.
inspired by dvf. so feminine and delicate. and loved the model's crazy hair... like a glamorous snooki

You may have noticed that a recurring theme in this blog - how much I enjoy talking about how frumpy DC is and how predictable life among the frumps (as one of the frumps) can be. So, yes, I am going to discuss this issue again. This time in relation to Fashion Week. As a citizen of the District, it is totally acceptable to be extremely behind schedule on posting anything about NYFW since all fashion related news is couriered down to us on horseback. Plus I needed some time to reflect.
So anyway, clearly I did not get to attend any shows but instead was resigned sitting home reading blow by blow accounts of them on twitter and enviously pouring over fashion bloggers' posts about it. Frankly, after a while some of these tweeting-show-attending jerks were getting on my nerves gloating over how gorgeous everything was and how cool the music was.
A. stop rubbing it in!
and B. if its that cool, put down your iphone, tweeting can wait.
Sighh... I'm just bitter.
But anyway, since I was not attending fashion shows and instead was here in DC reading blogs I had plenty of time to pick out my favorite pieces out of other cooler bloggers favorites. Sort of sad? Yes. But it gets less pathetic - I did get to meet a NYC based fashion blogger last weekend, Taylor of the ever entertaining and stylish shut up, i love that shirt on you
. She is my very first real live fashion blogger acquaintance and I'm pretty excited about it. Now that we've met I think its time I shared with you some of my favorites of her favorites from NYFW! Enjoy...
This was from Oscar de la Renta's collection. Anything with a belt/waistband - particularly made of thick soft satin ribbon - is OK by me. Buy this as a print!
This is Marc Jacobs. As always making women look like men in a very graceful, statement making way. Buy a print!
and a little Dian von Ferstenberg. I liked the bright lips and belt on this otherwise neutral-ish ensemble. Buy a print!
And my favorite of the favorites by Jason Wu. Giant ugly glasses that are some how... sexy? As Taylor described this look, "Nerd chic in the best possible way." Buy a print!
