Spring Wedding Season at Urban Chic Boutique

March 20, 2013 1 Comment

Happy First Day of Spring! I am celebrating by wearing a ski coat and earmuffs. Still feels like winter in New York.

But enough of reality, let's focus on blogland where it's time to wear a white lace dress and walk around with a champagne flute while planning your June wedding like this illustration here. I created her for Urban Chic Boutique's Third Annual "Urban Chic Says I Do" event. The event will take place March 29th and 30th at their Georgetown shop. The Boutique is turning itself into a mini wonderland of bridal delights for the weekend  featuring their favorite local jewelry designers, hair and makeup experts, photographers, party planners and caterers annnnnnnddd their favorite bridal portrait illustrator - me!

So if you are lucky enough to be spending Easter weekend in Washington and are in the process of planning a wedding, come by and see me on Friday at the store! I'll be there taking appointments with brides to discuss and schedule commissions. You can browse examples of my work and we can pick a project that suits you and your wedding perfecty!

If you shop at the event I will offer you a 15% discount on your bridal portrait and/or bridesmaid sketches! I'll also be selling some new bridal note cards and painting monograms at the event so you can test out your new last name in watercolor. Cute, right? Right!

Here's the official invite. Consider yourself officially invited!

If you are super excited about getting one-on-one time with me or any of the other vendors email me at inslee@inslee.net or email my urban chic go-to girl, Katie at katherine@urbanchiconline.com and we will schedule you!

An illustration I created for my friends at Urban Chic in Georgetown to celebrate an upcoming book signing tea with author Emily Giffin to celebrate her new book, where we belong and all the stylish women who can't wait to read it. This illustration will be available as a signed print at the event (and I'll be there too, come say hi)!

Remember that episode of the office? One of my faves. Anyway... behold this cute little logo for the Urban Chic Fashion Show 2011 Urban Chic is my absolutely favorite place to shop in Georgetown. Seriously, its like my second home. I even worked there for a summer when I first graduated and promptly spent every penny I earned on clothes there. They have launched a yearly fashion show that has been a huge hit each year and I am sure this show will be just as great. Their theme is sort of a play on the styles of the 70's, but with a modern, urban, chicness to it of course. The show is going to be held at the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore this fall. Follow Urban Chic on the book to get updates about the show if you are in the area!
