Ascension and Snow

Masquerading like some sort of villain... The Lollipop Girl.


Organizing a hoard of Louis Vuitton bags reminiscent of a passenger boarding the Titanic, I subsequently stiletto-stomped my way through the airport… my least favorite locale. The multitudes of people spatter together a freakish rendition of business, pleasure, and necessity. A communal jungle of paperbacks, multicolored Blackberrys, laptops, iPods, and diverse banter illuminate hastened boarding calls as a modicum of boredom weaves the metaphorical features of departure gates, all passengers all rows… terminal. Without defense to unwarranted luggage cruelty, enthusiasm flatlines.

I do it for love... but ah, the joys of travel.

From the stomach of flight, the world below is silent while conversation nebulizes and then bounces from either side of the oatmeal colored aircraft like a ping-pong ball caught in tilt. At 36,000 feet, anything’s possible… though slightly altitude-jaded, I escape into a book, catnap, amp the iPod, and wait for that final destination to appear somewhere in the puzzle pieces of the sleeping mountains below. From taxi to tarmac and nearly a mile of yet another throng of corridors… I finally trace the baggage claim.
A design assuredly part of some new fitness program.

Hope you're having/you had a nice trip. =) I hate the airport, but you make it sound so palatable.

Bella these pics are insane! you're stunning, and the mask is fierce.
I want those shoes btw.
Yey your back!!!

I just LOVE those shoes! They look so yummy!!! You look so pretty my dear!! I would look wasted and tired after travelling! I do enjoy it up to a certain extent but if you talk about taking 16-hour,connecting flights composed of 4 different ones from here to the US... by the time I get to my final destination... I would look like dog-poop and it might take me a day to sleep afterwards! heehee...

amazing outfit! so rock-chic, i just love it, especially your platforms.


actually i like airports, i dont know why. its always kind of interesting for me, to watch all of these people travelling to different places - the way they dress, behave, talk in their own languages. maybe im just weird... ;)
J'Adore Fashion said…

Oh I agree - airports have zero charm. They are just the necessary evil accompanying frolicks overseas.

These are lovely photos. Some of them look like they were taken in a old library or museum? Very charming!

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.”

Wooden Ophelia Distressed Moon Shelf

Just added this pretty 'Distressed Crescent Moon Shelf' to my shop. So happy with the way this one turned out.

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!
