CHANEL-INSPIRED TWEED

If you’ve been following along for a while, you’ll know that I love drawing fashion illustrations–especially of dresses.  With every piece that I finish, I’ve always wished that I’d be able to take the project one step further–being able to construct my illustrations into garments I could actually wear.  I was really excited to finally be able to do just that with today’s dress.

WHITE OUT

I know that Labor Day has come and gone but recently, whenever I reach in my closet to start putting together an outfit, the color white keeps calling my name.  I’ve found myself layering all different shades of white over the last few weeks because I love how minimalistic and simple it looks. I know this breaks all of the classic fashion rules but since I live in LA, I’ve decided white works all year-round and we get a free pass.

NAUTICAL + WEDDING LOCKET

Our amazing wedding photographer surprised me with one of the most thoughtful gifts a recent bride and new wife could ever ask for:  a personalized gold locket with our favorite wedding photo on the outside and engagement photo on the inside.  When I opened this necklace for the first time, it brought me right back to the happiest day of our lives and I couldn’t wait to wear it.
