When autumn leaves fall down

Recently, layered silhouettes, drape cardigans, and chunky little knit hats have been making quite an impression on my everyday styling… just a few more progressing fascinations to accessorize the fall/winter ambiance. Man, I love it when virtually everything in my closet becomes seasonally appropriate.
Very special thanks to Sydnie and chickdowntown for my gorgeous Tolani scarf, it’s a pitch-perfect addition to my wardrobe!

(Forever 21 asymmetrical tank and heels, Target jeans, Tolani scarf, H&M knit hat, BCBG drape cardigan)


love your cardigan (:

I love your cardi babe! It looks soooo comfy! I just saw a piece like that (only it's super long) at the thrift store yesterday, but I don't know why I didn't get it!! Urghhh now I wanna go back and get it, hopefully no one finds it as comforting as I did lol (so they don't get it haha).

I just ADORE how your face always look so smooth and dewy! What makeup do you use? Omg if that's of your natural complexion, I'm gonna shoot myself... I'd be so jealous!! You look stunning chica ;)

Hey honey! You are the picture of fall loveliness :) Where the Wild Things Are was different than I expected. I won't say I didn't like it, it just may be one of those movies I need to see twice before judging it. xo

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.

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…
