an illustrated e-valentine i created for the kate spade b mine event! hope everyone is having a warm, fuzzy weekend of love!
this pre-fall look from DSquared2 reminds me of the 60s. Well, I wasn’t there, so it makes me think of the 60s. And then it makes me think of the joyous fact that MadMen is coming back soon!
And from pre-fall to actual fall, I’m off to Milk Studios to see what there is to see today at New York Fashion Week. Because here in NYC on this chilly February day, it is actually time to start thinking about September. I’m going to visit my good friend Taylor of Shut up I love that and her good friends at the IFB (thats Independent Fashion Bloggers). Taylor has been kind enough to sneak me into the presentation of Misha Nonoo and a few others. I’ll be tweeting and instagraming so you should follow me to get a birds eye view!
I spent my days in school doodling my way through math classes, filling pages with these tiny sketches of ballerinas. At the end of class I’d give pages of ballerinas to my friends as locker art.
I’ve been at home visiting my family for the past few days and it reminded me of these miniature sketches. So I decided to see if I still was a ballerina doodle expert and draw these!
I’m looking forward to wearing accordion pleats this spring. (ahhh I just had to read that sentence and laugh at myself a little bit. fashion blogging really is so ridiculous, isn’t it?)
Anyway, loving the tiny pleats and looking forward to finding a floaty skirt like this one. And added bonus, these skirts are a built in weight management system. Because, even though they are made up of hundreds of tiny folds that are capable of spreading out into a larger skirt, there is nothing worse than accordion pleats that are well… accordion-ing. They must lie flat and neatly tucked for this look to work. Something to consider when the second tray of nachos comes out at the Super Bowl party this weekend.
I for one am boycotting the Super Bowl this year, not as a nacho avoidance tactic, but because instead I will be busily working away on behind the scenes odds and ends that keep Inslee By Design a functioning little business. You’d be surprised how much hard work that doesn’t involve a paint brush goes into running this operation!
