Current Color Mood: Yellow

Sunny happy yellow is cropping up everywhere & I’m loving it for summer. Who says you can only wear yellow during the day? Wear it to go out, for a wedding, etc.

I’m also loving slit dresses. I love that it’s okay to be a little cheekier during the summer too. 

Women’s Day // Spring on the Horizon

Today and every day we should be whoever we want to be and do whatever we want to do, to paraphrase Coco Chanel. Love all the inspiring women in my life & those who’ve come before us. Let’s inspire girls to be the innovators & leaders of tomorrow. 

Happy Women’s Day ❤🙌

Love is In the Air

Even though the world as we know it has been turned a little on its side as we go forward into a new year and a controversial (to say the least) presidency, I’m trying to remain grateful and feel the love that remains. Today I felt loved after receiving so many birthday wishes. I truly appreciate each one and think it’s time to plant some seeds of hope. 

I’ve been feeling a bit disenchanted the past few days. (Lack of sleep didn’t help). I started thinking of all the things I love today, including this blog, and my readers, and realized, when some things suck, you can always turn a new page. You can choose to look at things differently. That’s what I’m doing today, on my birthday.

I made this illustration to illustrate a dress a feminine, slightly kitschy retro dress I envisioned for Valentine’s Day.

Have a lovely day! 💕

Pen & Paper

Sometime simple is better. I’m having doing fashion illustrations with just pen & paper. I also love drawing small details like lace and victorian collars. I’m feeling very feminine of late. 

Love you all

Today I continued to be inspired by vintage glamour. There’s something to be said for understated style and beauty. What you wear speaks volumes about you so, make it count. Hope my readers are enjoying my posts, collages, and fashion illustrations. Please like & follow my blog if so!

Love,

Maggie

Believe it or not, summer is not my favorite season. My favorite is actually the one with fiery colored leaves, crisp mornings, and the one in which pumpkin spice lattes pervade everyone’s vocabulary; yes fall! So I am more than excited about what Fall 2016 has to offer.

Here’s the same illustration with a filter. Not sure which one I like better.

In the mean time, I’m still into midi skirts, ankle strap sandals, and Marc Jacobs and Dolce and Gabbana-inspired daisy appliques. What’s your favorite season?

Love,

Maggie

PS: I’m really feeling down about Orlando and the horrific crime that went down there. All I can say is more live, less hate. Please.
