Somewhere in the shades

I have a certain type of relationship with my sunglasses. You know, they let me obsess then subsequently toss them on the passenger seat, love them until setting them aside because I've chosen a sister pair instead, and then eventually orbit back... loving and obsessing all over again. But sunglasses have a way of transforming your style aesthetic, which means one pair is never enough. This theory might be interlaced with the need to inundate my shopping cart with cat eyes and wayfarers each time I browse ShadesDaddy.com. Established in 2007, they're one of the largest online retailers of sunglasses, and have it all when it comes to name brand sunglasses... they even a celebrity category! 
When the president of the company, Brian Nelson, contacted me, I was absolutely thrilled to be collaborating with such an amazing team. Taking pride in not only a customer satisfaction that's flawlessly pioneered (or the fact that items arrive carefully packaged), they also boast an authenticity guarantee throughout an impressive collection of designers ranging from Bogetta Venetta, Marc Jacobs, Ray-Ban, Gucci, Chloe, and many more! This pair is so delicious!

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…
