Karin, my most faithful and clever blog post commenter is also Monsieur Louboutin's most faithful devotee. These are for you babe.
borderline creepy side note:
I am wearing my ONLY pair of Louboutins right now.
I had them sitting on my desk to get the proportions of the sketch accurate and it just felt right that I should wear them whilst composing this post. They're so beautiful, too bad they haven't left the house in a year. Sigh... these puppies need a more exciting life. Perhaps I'll take them on my adventure to NYC next weekend.
Anyway. Sorry Loubster if my faking your signature is some sort of copyright infringement, its all out of love
A street style moment
I saw recently on Garance Dore's site. Loved the hat. I am beginning to realize that I really need a fur hat. My head is freezing all the time. But even more, I need the courage to strut around in a fur hat. As soon as I put on any type of hat I feel ridiculous. I feel like I've just put a live pelican on my head and desperately need to remove it. I've always been envious of people who can just wear hats nonchalantly like this girl is. She is owning all that fur and
those stiletto ankle boots. So cool.
Second installment of my birthday sketches... Julie is wearing a look from Rebecca Taylor spring 2o11 that reminded me of her - classic and lovely. Happy Birthday Julie San!
Happy Valentines everyone!
i'm going to a double header birthday party night for two amazingly fierce individuals tonight. i wish i had this tibi dress to wear, it would be perfect.
have a romantic weekend!
In the spirit of the approaching Valentines weekend, here is some love themed art.
This is an illustration I did for Kristin and Reagan of Kristin Newman Designs
- an event planning and design firm based in Charleston, SC. Not only did Reagan and I both graduate from W&L, but we're sisters of the key. Kappa konnections!
So it was only fitting that we should collaborate on this little project. This sketch is a portrait of one of the brides whose wedding they recently styled and planned and they're going to give it to her as a thank you gift.
Isn't she lovely? And aren't Kristin and Reagan lovely for thinking of this unique thank you gift? You too could be this thoughtful.... just email me! I love painting wedding gowns!
So yes, this is me. I decided the illustration I did for my ABOUT
page really didn't accurately reflect my amazingly chic and glamorous lifestyle and it was time to show you what my office space really looks like.
KIDDING! kidding so much. that is not me...
Its an illustration I did for Cameo PR
Cameo is a NYC based boutique public relations agency that focus on up and coming accessories designers. President Malorie Kaye contacted me recently and we discussed how in her line of work she is constantly searching for new gift ideas for magazine editors. Rough life huh!?
So together we brainstormed up an illustration - which later turned into sets of note cards that captures the workspace of magazine editors. Cameo plans to use these boxed sets as editor gifts. Cool huh!?
Thanks again, Malorie for finding me!
