We will not go quietly into the night

Backpedaling to the fourth of July and red doorway 691…

Considering the overcast crap-fest that lingered just outside my window, I saw no point in pursuing what would ultimately be unsuccessful self-preparation, because honestly, I wasn’t about to battle the 100% humidity. I mean, after spending ten minutes tousled in the cords of a dysfunctional hair straightener, I was over it.

But even as the lazy night wore on with minimal indecision/concern, we somehow (laughs) managed two wrong turns hunting for last minute sparklers, three endless stoplights, a never-ending Ghostbusters theme song, one torrential downpour the vegetable pizza didn’t appreciate, and a pomegranate popsicle coma to our great amusement. Man, we had a good time… and at the end of our daily saga, saying we had “fun” would probably be a mild understatement.

(Vintage studded blazer, Target t-shirt, Bakers fringe boots, H&M tights, Plume dress)

You look beautiful Bella, as you always do. Your DIY projects are an inspiration. I enjoy doing this kind of project also. And on your previous post "Pretty Little Things" your Chihuahuas are soooo pretty! I love all your jewelry, rings and bracelets, and what you do with chain necklaces is amazing. Can't wait to see more "pretty little things" you do. Hope you are having a fantastic weekend. :)

Ahhh, Bella, thank you for making me laugh. Lol, still sniggering at your comment and imagining you going through the closet. To be fair cough*I kinda have the same problem*cough :)

And hell yes to the savage kicks being purchased. Do share once you buy ;)

Also, sorry you're not feeling well. I'm with you. And people keep saying that I must not be that ill because I don't look it but this stupid flu only makes you look moderately viciously ill ;)

p.s. fuzzy wuzzy slippers. Lolll! Ahhh, thank you :)

Hope you feel better ASAP. Have a beer, its gotta be good for you. And rest my dear, you need it.

Oh and please do buy some savage kicks because I live vicariously through your shoe collection and have resolved to wait on a pair of shoes I've seen and want and that are not yet out. Grrr.

haha, have a lovely weekend bella and stay strong (in the fuzzy wzzy slippers, of course ;)

Designs by Bella: Vintage Lollipops x Magazzini del Sale Capsule Collection

Last year, Italian designer Graziano Moro of Magazzini Del Sale contacted me about collaborating and designing a five-piece Limited Edition capsule collection for their SS 11 Love Can Change the World t-shirt line. Having never been given such an incredibly surreal opportunity before, you can imagine my absolute surprise... followed by some sort of psychotic jubilation. At the time, I'd only been drawing for about a month, which means the designs you're seeing are some of my very first artworks! Brainstorming endless possibilities, the process began with a series of sketches, clipart graphics, and silhouette collages until I further conceptualized the vision by deciding to submit only my illustrations.  After presenting numerous options, Graziano and the team exclusively selected their top picks... and after several months of diligence, reworking, and constant communication, my artwork was transformed into a beautiful line of ecru shirts forever deemed, Vintage Lollipops x M…

I'm fine, thank you. - Margot Tenenbaum

(Watercolor, 2012)  New artwork from the past. Based on one of my all-time favorite characters, the ever-sullen, infamously secretive, Margot Tenenbaum.
