BFF’s: Stuart Weitzman, Beyonce and me

STOP THE PRESSES.

I thought getting engaged was the best day of my life. But this might have just topped it. I am now officially connected to Beyonce by one degree of separation. Previously the connection was more like 6 million degrees. So this jump is pretty significant for me and Bey’s friendship. Hey girllll!!!!!!!

The Stuart Weitzman team commissioned me to create this illustration of their new designs. They eluded to the fact that they were for a celebrity collaboration but they didn’t tell me which celeb would be wearing them. Don’t worry, I forgive them. The surprise of finding this on WWD was WONDERFUL.

Here’s the official press release deets…

NEW YORK – Stuart Weitzman and Beyoncé’s creative team have designed the footwear for The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour. This is a continuation of their collaboration following Weitzman’s creation of the shoes for Beyoncé’s last two tours, The Beyoncé Experience and I Am…Tour, as well as multiple special performances.

Beyoncé’s stylists, Ty Hunter and Raquel Smith, and fashion designer Tina Knowles collaborated with Weitzman to create footwear that will compliment the multiple costumes to be worn in The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour. The shoe designs range from stiletto pumps, with Swarovski crystal details, to lace up, military-influenced boots, both short and thigh-high. Weitzman also created styles to be worn by her dancers and band members.

Do we think it’s too soon to ask Beyonce to sing at my wedding? Maybe I should just start by asking if Blue Ivy would be a flower girl…


New Spring Cards

Have you seen my new Spring 2013 Collection? These are just a few of them, be sure to browse my shop to see them all. I really took your comments into consideration when I created these. So I hope they’ll come in handy for your note writing needs. Thank you all for being such a fabulous, supportive community.

And exciting news! I just redesigned the packaging for my cards. I am obsessed with this electric lavender colored box with the gold foil imprinting. I hope you will be too!

April at Leontine

Happy April from Leontine Linens. This blog should be re-titled the “Leontine Linens Official Fan Page” as it seems like half my posts are about them.

As I mentioned in a previous post, when I first spoke to Jane Scott, the company’s founder, she offered to help me design monogrammed linens of my own and I forlornly told her I wasn’t ready yet for my “official” bedding.

I mean, whats the point of getting your maiden name monogrammed on your bed when you’ve spent the past five years doodling a certain someone’s last name with your own on scrap paper?

Well, that certain someone made all my dreams come true – both in the monogramming linens and true love departments – this past weekend by presenting me with a very important piece of jewelry!!!!

So look out, Jane Scott! It’s time to start monogramming!

And look out everyone else, it’s time to turn this blog into a wedding planning forum! Or… more likely… it’s time to try to remember to blog at all despite all the excitement.

April Calendar Girl

Happy April! Don’t forget to change your calendars! I loved this girl so much I put her on the calendar cover too, so she may look pretty familiar by now.

Gala Moda Nextel

Here’s an illustration that the Moda Nextel team commissioned for their Gala Moda Nextel, celebrating the newest collection from Oscar de la Renta. This gala is the first of a series of fabulous events that Nextel de Mexico puts on to celebrate designer collections each year. From what I understand, it is sort of like a roaming, spectacular circus of fashion week glamor that circulates around Mexico all year long – and I am going to help them with illustrations this year, how cool is that?

If you want to see more of the amazing productions that Moda Nextel has to offer, watch this video of last year’s fetes. If that doesn’t make you want to drink tequila in a sequin jump suit while dancing on a platform… I really don’t know what to tell you.

The event took place on Friday night and looked absolutely gorgeous. Check out this instagram of the venue from Oscar PR girl’s feed

gorgeous, isn’t it? I can’t wait to see what else Moda Nextel has in store for this year. I’ll be sure to share our future illustration collaborations as they come up!
