Stop and smell the roses

A friend of mine is sewing this dress for herself, resourceful huh? Doesn't the hot pink zipper just make all the difference?

Aren't these little waifs cute? These sketches are inspired by the tailored collection of Erin Fetherston.

happy friday

Hi! I feel like its been a long time since I've blogged and I'm sorry, I hope you haven't given up on me! Its been a busy couple of weeks for me. Actually its more than busy, its been a HOT couple of weeks. Being unable to stop sweating does not inspire my creative streak. But anyway, today is divine and I'm back.

The current state of the blog header is a little haphazard isn't it? I'm working on it don't worry. Anyway, I hope you're all too busy leaving work early to head to some wonderful beach front destination to even see this post, but just in case you're stuck in doors, here's a DVF bikini...

summer solstice

A summery painting for you today now that the solstice has begun. I'm always surprised when it isn't "officially" summer until the end of June even though its been 90 degrees every day for the past six weeks. But better late than never, at least its finally here!

A little bit of leopard to jump start the morning...

I was in a fog of hating the beginning of the week and how the treadmill of life is so cruel etc etc and then I saw these shoes on 5 inch and up and was immediately distracted from wallowing. This blog is written by a Finnish fashion student in London and she is quite the shoe dare devil. If this doesnt scare you into waking up I don't know what will...

Escape from reality

Its raining, its Wednesday, and I have a cold. What better time than this to escape reality with the Dior Resort 2011 collection? The retro girlieness cheered me up right away. Don't you think?

Dear Diary

I've never been a faithful journal keeper or a diary person. I have occasionally gotten all jazzed up about devoting a time in each day to reflection but somehow that always gets derailed after about two days and 40 dollars spent on fancy moleskin notebooks that end up gathering dust. But this year I finally found something that works... a daily drawing journal. I actually look forward to finding something interesting each day on the street, in a magazine, on a blog, in a dream that is worth drawing. And the best part is, unlike a diary, I don't have to keep it hidden in my underwear drawer. See look I'll show it to you now...

golden years of short shorts

Ok so.... I know I shouldn't base my life choices on "hot 99.5" but I was listening to the radio yesterday and the idiots who are always talking and not playing music were discussing when is the age when wearing daisy duke shorts is no longer acceptable. One caller chimed in to say she felt the cut off age (pun intended) was 30 years old. And this really got me thinking. I only have six good years left to wear denim underpants around in public!

Or less.... I mean if this girl is calling into radio stations to discuss jean shorts, then perhaps her judgment is flawed. No, her judgment is definitely flawed. The end of tiny shorts could be sooner than 30! I must wear them as much as possible!

Also... clogs. Clogs seem to be this year's answer to the crazy bad idea in foot wear. Last year's gladiator contraption is this years clog. But I actually like clogs. If you see me wandering down the street in tights, daisy duke shorts and clogs, you must promise not to laugh until I have passed.
