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!
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?
I’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 eternally in love with vintage and always have been. Being that it’s swimsuit season, I bring you a little fashion illustration illustrating my love of vintage/retro bathing suits. I really like the old school approach to sexiness and femininity in addition to the fashion. Also, I just love the freedom and serenity of standing in the ocean and being at the beach.
Happy swimsuit season! Remember loves, the objective is not perfection. 😊❤👙🌊💧🌞🎨
So all of the pretty pictures on Pinterest (yes I have a wedding board) and Instagram got me inspired to do a wedding season themed fashion illustration. I may do more because there are just so many places you can go with this theme (glam bride, romantic bride classic bride, etc.). Here I did a natural bride. Pretty, happy and herself.
I love drawing and painting with paper and real art tools but its so hard to get a good picture of the illustrations with my phone camera. Instagram has great tools that help bring photos closer to what my ilustrations actually look like. I used th above. The downside is Instagram cuts off pieces of photos. Still, my love affair with Instagram is far from over! Here’s the whole drawing with no white balance adjustment:
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,
