Lipstick stains on rooftops

I know-I know, the same suede Topshop boots keep manifesting in various posts… but there was an inadequate amount space for stockpiling platforms while packing, so I blame the DVF luggage exclusively. Special thanks to the always-lovely Ediot for designing this amazing shirt. I absolutely adore it, and it’s become such an adaptable wardrobe piece that I’ve been virtually living in it!

And I couldn’t believe the news when I walked out to the mailbox, and there it was… a certificate awarding my manuscript, A Grove without Wings, Honorable Mentions in the 78th Annual Writer’s Digest Writing Competition. In the face of such a well-regarded competition, it’s a truly remarkable achievement for my writing career. Needless to say, I’ve far surpassed the initial “Oh my God!” and catapulted straight into a state of euphoria, so many thanks to everyone who sent such thoughtful twitter warm wishes!

(Hot Topic skirt, Eyeshadow cardigan, Ediot shirt, Oscar de la Renta socks, Forever 21 necklace, Topshop boots)


Ohh how cute you look, love the whole outfit!

Hope you're ok dear, long time since I last heard from you!

Ever since I saw that post of u wearing those alice + olivia madison biker boots, I've searched for them everywhere, and they're completely sold out. Some thieves are selling them for double d price on ebay but i think i'll pass on that. lol
Now I really wish I had picked them up when I ran into them at NYC. :-(

Cherokee | Drawing Progress

As a woman of esteemed Cherokee ancestry, I've wanted to express and create a more spiritual atmosphere to my art for a long time. One that specifically depicts my bloodline... the strength, courage and exemplary virtues of some of the women I've been fortunate enough to know in my life.
“The Cherokees did not separate spiritual and physical realms but regarded them as one, and they practiced their religion in a host of private daily observances as well as in public ceremonies.”

New Drawing ▲The Main Light

It's always exciting to share new artwork, especially after spending hours, days and sometimes weeks mapping through imaginative ideas and all those billowing clouds of charcoal dust. Through this much-needed experiment of breaking the boundaries of my comfort zone, I'm anxious to develop as an artist... and in the same thought, I know that growth takes time. Until then, I'll keep taking small steps towards something bigger.
The Main Light, is the second drawing in a new collection I've been diligently creating. Don't forget to look back on the first piece, Silent Forest, as well as thesneak peek I shared the other day!
