Little bottle of vintage Armani


There are few unfamiliar with the name, Giorgio Armani. In fact, I was leafing through my collection of perfume the other day and rediscovered this pretty bottle of Gio. I'm pretty sure its been resting in my vanity for about a decade, so I couldn't defy resuscitation. 

A distinguished principle within the fashion industry, Armani's veritable cornucopia of designs ranging from haute couture to ready-to-wear (for both men and women) have become well-established over the years. Even fewer are unfamiliar with Armani's stunning campaign photography, featuring many of today's celebrity favorites. The aesthetically visionary images seem to capture the essence of a sophisticated seduction that leaves audience's imaginations beckoning for more. Then there's the pursuit of retail  therapy... seen not only in stores across the globe but also as it marches down heavenly lit runways, inspiring its way straight into our trend-loving, must-have hearts. 
I was browsing Whites Boutique and instantly took a liking to this stone mac coat and its almost cosmic funnel collar. So good! Clearly, the Italian powerhouse beholds a visceral expression of class and lavishness to each and every silhouette, conveying a statement that makes you want to take permanent residence in the world of Armani.

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!

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…
