Well, I simply didn’t see this coming.
A year ago I hated purses with top handles and shoes with any sort of tassel. I believe I actually did a blog post making fun of fur vests about a year ago too. And I would have sooner gone barefoot than wear mid calf boots with heels. (Unless I was in some sort of halloween costume)
Yet strangely enough, these are all trends I am suddenly a fan of this fall. I can’t explain my change of heart! I wouldn’t have believed you if you’d told me I’d like these things a year ago.
Could it be that New York has changed my perspective??
And don’t even get me started on bright green skinny jeans, I truly don’t know what has become of me. I really want some! I must have a fever!
Hello, happy Friday!
Yesterday someone told me I sketch the way Bill Cunningham photographs. And I think it might be the best compliment in the world.
So I promptly went out into the streets to hunt for inspiration and found these two lingering on Elizabeth Street with their 1.5 pound dog and fabulous outerwear.
I hear the phrase “you can only get ___ in NYC” all the time in reference to certain foods, certain shopping etc. BUT what no one tells you is that you can only find dogs THIS small here. I swear, I’ve never seen such a high concentration of miniscule dogs before anywhere else in the world.
I think it must be a response to our tiny apartments. Once you realize you only need a 200 square foot living space, you realize one pound of dog is enough to warm your heart too.
Happy November! This illustration was inspired by a beautiful shot of Olivia Palermo. But then again, every picture of her is a beautiful one.
Sometimes its hard to look a year into the future when I’m illustrating the calendar, but I think this one worked out rather well. Everywhere I look, I see capes these days!
This perfect fall holiday calls for a foliage post. I mean when I think about halloween I think of pumpkins, costumes, and leaves crunching underfoot.
BUT there are no red leaves in New York. What is going on? It snowed on Saturday, but the leaves are still green! How is this possible? Must get to the bottom of this New York weather mystery…
