September is here!

Do you remember the 21st night of September....

Rejoice! We have shifted through time to the best song-month of the year! Gone are the sandy, sun bleached idol hours of August set to the rhythm of a lapping tide. Here comes the crisp, espresso and Earth Wind and Fire fuled toe-tapping enthusiasm of this perkiest of months. It's time for newness and fashion shows! 

This month's Calendar Girl is caught in a whirlwind moment between NYFW shows. One of those moments when everything is just on point and the paparazzi are loving it. Even Bill Cunningham slammed on his brakes...


Fall back to reality

 

It's fall! Time to step away from the beat up old flip-flops and shorts, pack away the little-white-dresses and put on your transitional wardrobe. Let's buckle down for some serious work and a seriously packed social schedule. September is such an energizing time, isn't it?

This sketch was created for The Simply Luxurious Life to celebrate Shannon's services as a wardrobe stylist. Wouldn't you want to hire her? After all, she styled this sketch!


Life starts all over again

Crisp fall days are just around the corner and  sept calendar girl is ready and waiting to start this fresh new month, happy September!


Frieda

While shuffling through a pile of papers this morning I discovered this shy little illustration. I completely forgot I had painted her! Love when that happens!

Doesn't she look like a fair skinned Frieda Pinto? Just a little bit?

She's wearing the perfect September Saturday outfit. This is that magic time of year when you can wear heavy clothes like long sleeved nautical sweaters and boyfriend jeans just for fun, not because you are actually really cold.

ps. buy a print!
