"Dahling, we should have a tea party and get frightfully fancy."

Things about this set of photos that make me smile: Silver glitter nail polish and body dust, Alex and Vina necklace courtesy of the ever-gorgeous Jeanine, Jeffrey Campbell Fab Lita platforms (thank you to the team over at for the incredible discount!), and last but hardly least, the UNIF shearling coat I couldn't resist upon spotting it at Nasty Gal Vintage.
Other random factoids: We spent all of twelve (that's right, twelve) minutes taking these because it was only 20 degrees outside, this is the warmest coat in the universe, the Christmas lights are from my neighbor's house who are used to me frolicking about in front of the camera, after turning into a Popsicle we went to Starbucks, had the tastiest gingerbread latte, headed to Target, was thoroughly grossed-out when I saw a woman in the restroom *cough cough* forget to wash her hands, winced, washed mine twice, then overspent on stocking stuffers.

When life gives you lemons... add Patron

Yesterday's climax was hell-bent in every conceivable way, but even as I framed the scope of persuasive language, I'm grateful for silver-linings and unfathomably small miracles. During the course of this picture-taking calamity, I (in retrospect) remorsefully set my clutch on top of the truck and then proceeded to drive off only to remember this ill-constructed act an hour later. So there I am, set deep in the valley of the shadows of horror while driving back to the scene of the crime... where of course, the clutch had turned Houdini and magically disappeared.

But the long and short of it is that when I finally got home, a welcomed voice on the answering machine said they had my belongings safe and sound... minus the cash that had been removed during its prior abduction. So thank you Jessica for finding it, driving 60 miles out of your way so that I could retrieve it, and for saving me unwarranted amounts of angst. And in a sigh of reprieve and raw contentment, I've come …

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…
