Vivienne Westwood, Sid and Jules B

There's no denying it, Vivienne Westwood radiates character. Enough so that not only did I decide to add her to my Charcoal Series but her intrigue makes me want to stroll about Buckingham Place in a tattered Sid Vicious t-shirt and a pair of platforms I'd almost certainly collapse in. Her iconic vision and cultural movement of contemporary punk is carried by few and the simple strike of small black and white keys forwarding a Google search proves an easily perceived reality that only she looks good with carrot-tinted locks. 
From her extraordinary Sex and the City designs in the 2008 film adaptation, highly publicized political involvements and jaw-dropping runway spotlights, her intrepid creative arsenal remains untouchable. I took some time browsing through the collection of Westwood designs over at www.julesb.co.uk, both Anglomania (oooh, this) and Red Label and somewhat unsurprisingly ended up hypnotically engaged in the accessories line. Have you seen them... head over to Jules B and check'em out!

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 …

Watercolor Wonderland x Nasty Gal

Still in shock...  Apart a from my instagram sneak peeks, it's been torture keeping this secret, but now I can finally share the amazing little fact that yours truly was featured on the one and only Nasty Gal (falls out of chair)!! When I was first contacted by NG and asked to design a few exclusive illustrations/paintings, I'm pretty sure my response was some highly intelligent verbiage falling along the lines of, "Wha-um-can't breathe. OMG am I dreaming?" But okay, here's a totally cliché moment... dreams come true!
