Leather & Lace...

When the Fall 2012 collections first debuted, I couldn't stop gushing about the Dolce & Gabbana show... and now the fall line is finally hitting the stores! The bags are gorgeous and cost nearly twice my rent but hey... I can drool and dream =)

SoHo Street Find...

While browsing the streets of SoHo on a summer Friday, I made an impulse purchase (a very rare thing for me) but I'm happy I did. There were tables upon tables of these little bracelets for sale along Prince Street, my friend and I couldn't help but be drawn to the neon ones! Here's mine in action:

I hope you're enjoying a sunny weekend. It's rainy here in New York... but at least that gives me an excuse to wear my wellies =) Have a relaxing Sunday!

Blogger Inspired...

I first started seeing her outfit posts pop up on Pinterest and now I'm obsessing over her closet! Rachel Parcell of Pink Peonies always pairs preppy with a dose of glitz and glam. And she's not afraid of color... which makes for a great sketch =) This sequin sweater is amazing paired with skinny jeans and glittery loafers. And a peep of polka dots is perfection! The right outfit really can change your mood =) Happy Friday, everyone!

Wednesday Wishlist...

I get so excited when the new J.Crew catalog comes in the mail... especially when it contains the first glimpses of a new fall collection! Even though it will be at least 90 degrees tomorrow, I'm already thinking about my fall wish list..

1. Polka dotted cashmere... yum!
2. Classy patent flats with a little golden heel
3. Fancy tweed A-line mini skirt

I might even stop in the store this weekend and see them in person. Did you get your J.Crew catalog yet? What are your favorites? I hope you have a great rest of your week... it's been a long one but we're almost there! =)

These darling little kitten heels by Christian Louboutin are my third and final pair from the contest. 'Milady' is from the Fall 2012 collection and I love the patent bow.... I'm noticing a theme =)

I've decided that I have been drawing too many shoes recently, it's become an obsession! I must move on to something new... perhaps my new fall wish list... is it too early to be dreaming of sweaters and boots?

The Lovely Mira...

Another drawing in what is becoming a pencil portrait mini series! I think I'll make it a habit to change up my style a bit with these black and white drawings more often... Miroslava Duma is positively 24/7 100% chic. She always looks adorable and wears the most interesting things. I first saw her in a collection of photos captured by Tommy Ton and have been following her style ever since. This image is so lovely, I just had to illustrate! I hope you all had a great week, I'm thankful the weekend is here... time to relax and get some much needed drawing time in. More illustrations to come, including that last pair of Louboutins!

Pair Number Two...

These chic little gold 'turban' flats are perfect for the girl who can't fathom wearing heels all day in the city. I wanted to get a pair of Louboutins that I would actually wear, and given the sizing dilemma mentioned previously, I was lucky enough Bergdorf's had mine in stock. Yay for pair number two!
