Counting tree rings among the leaves

You can never have too many carousel rides, too much family shenanigans, or too many silver chains wrapped around your ankle boots...

Awesomeness: Okay, so I admit, when my girl Liz--the unbelievably cool, wickedly witty, gorgeous babe--over at It's Unbeweavable so thoughtfully suggested I do a Guest Post for her lovely blog… I did an unabashed little happy dance (Zeppelin in the background) and subsequently jumped, as if spring-operated, at her amazing invitation.

Despite sounding like a broken record, thank you-thank you-thank you!

(Vintage sequin top, Cettu bag, Jessica Simpson boots w/added chains, Miss Me Denim, Victoria's Secret eyelet shorts, Hot Topic rose ring & studded cuff, and the same-old knuckledusters I always wear-Target & TJ Maxx)

You will always be an example for me, Bella dear and not only because of your unreachable style, but because of who you are as a person, at least what you transmit through your words and beliefs!

Lot of love,
Gia!

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
