Pining for Cooler Days

I wish it was fall already. Not only do I love living in layers, fall fashion, and fall tones, but I’ve always found fall to be a source of new beginnings for me.

I love everything pumpkin too. 🎃🎃🎃 Halloween has pretty much always been my excuse to dress out of my comfort zone and try something off the wall. Thanksgiving just warms the heart, period. Fall, hurry up. 🍂🍂🍁🍁 What’s your favorite season?

Pre-Fall Fashion Illustration Inspiration for New Creations

IMG_20160705_181434.jpg

Today’s inspiration for new creations. I’ve been wanting to visit NYC for as long as I can remember (thanks Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Sex and the City, Friends, Seinfeld, Gossip Girl..and wait, well every one of my favorite shows! 😨😱😍) As I mentioned in my previous post, I’m working on some new threads that will be up in my Ebay & Etsy shops soon. Army jackets & jeans with patchwork would be so on-trend and chic for Fall. Believe it or not, Fall is my favorite season. As much as I fawn over summer fashion, fall weather, colors, layers and pumpkin spice lattes are so much better! 😀🍁🍂🚕👠🎨

Love you all for reading! What’s your favorite season or fall 2016 trend?

Fashion Illustration // Inspiration for Design Project I’m Working On

IMG_20160629_140712I’m very excited to say I’m working on a design project. I’ve been researching and gaining inspiration for a little while, and I’m almost ready to make the actual products! Before doing so, I’ll be posting fabric swatches, more illustrations, (of the actual items) and more on my inspiration! So far, I cam say I’m being inspired by the natiral California landscape & traditional Mexican folkloric garments. 😀👖👒🌹

My vacation officially starts tomorrow and I am beyond ecstatic that I can dedicate all my time to my project, blogging, and music making. Yay!

Hope you’re all having an amazing summer so far! Make the most of it.

😉🌞✌❤

I’m Waiting for My Man//Fashion Illustration Inspired by Coffee, Coffee Shops, Waiting for your Bae, Summer, Vintage, Daisies, Marc Jacobs & Dolce & Gabbana

IMAG0622_1_1

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.

Inspired by Cacti, Michael Kors Purses, Missoni Prints & Fabrics & New Art Stuff

IMG_20160608_191911.jpg

I was inspired to paint again with real paper and watercolors after receiving a whole new stash of art materials from a very kind donor. While walking this week, due to my car being in the auto shop, I saw the prettiest cactus flower. Also, as I mentioned before, I’m REALLY into plants on pink. On a side note, Lyft is pretty awesome too.

I got the idea for the purse I drew from Michael Kors’ latest denim creations and the shape of his more popular purses. I absolutely adore Missoni with all my heart and their prints and woven fabrics were the inspiration for the jumpsuit I drew. Instagram has been heavily populated by an endless supply of fashion bloggers, and while I’m happy to have found all sorts of interesting fashion girls and some guys to follow, I’m really happy there’s a plus size Instagrammer movement going on. I’m happy women are frowning upon body shaming outspokenly. That’s why I drew a curvy lady! Who says fashion is only for skinny women anyway?

With peace and love,

Maggie
