Garden Party for Two


When my eyes grazed over it, I knew with all the resembling Astroturf glory that it was a rare attempt at love at first sight… seeing as I nearly atrophied to this jacket’s brilliant oddity. Lounging among the masses of a local Goodwill, its ugly duckling-ness screamed audibly from a corner rack. And somehow, I couldn’t stomach the thought of not having this delicious vintage piece readily socialize with others in my closet, my fashion lair.

In the vein of such a verdant forest quality and prickly green panache, the (very nearly) funky charisma hit a sweet note and the formula just seemed to work. In all fairness, albeit much to my chagrin of lusting after yet another wardrobe affiliate, unless some other peculiarity strikes a chord, it will perpetually remain… The Grass Jacket.


Boots, Nine West. T, F21. Cutoffs, DIY.

No animals were harmed in the making of The Grass Jacket.

GREAT find. Dude. I love it.
I love your fur, your 9west boots and your shorts. Can't believe we own the same tee? How amazing. You look gorgeous as always.

PS: Whenever I see the opening sequence of SATC I think of you; tutu and all. Your Mom is so talented. I want one just like that so very much!<3

Hello there fabulous lady!

Diggin' it - That jacket screams "I don't take anything too seriously" which is so my approach to fashion!

Its so odd and unique that its bound to cause some love/hate controversy. And the fact you've christened it....awesomeness.

Oh, and I can't believe you're following my blog! Very flattering indeed....

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…
