I am home from nyfw, and while I have a few amazing pictures I need to share with you from ODLR, I first wanted to share what I am looking at right now.
I am back to work doing test illustrations for a large project, and my inspiration for the tests:

Backstage at Lela Rose

The makeup at Lela Rose was my favorite at Fashion week. Here are a few photos I snapped backstage as the models got ready. I loved the deep lips by Stila, and also the amazing polish by Deborah Lippman

giveaway! stella and dot

I am still here in NYC for fashion week- but thought I would take a break from show posts for a moment to say Happy Valentines Day...with a giveaway.
The lovely Ashley T, of stella and dot has teamed up with our blog for an amazing giveaway. I personally love that stella and dot has a mix of fun and playful pieces - and also offers many things you can wear everyday.

I chose these simple and sparkly earrings for the giveaway because I feel like every woman needs a pair like this, not only for special occasions, but for everyday wear... Please leave a comment below letting Ashley and I know what you would wear these with for Spring.  (I thought it would be fun to get us dreaming of the sun today...)
if you would like more info on Stella and Dot jewelry, or on hosting your own event contact her here

Ruffian / The Lake and Stars

We had such an amazing time running from show to show on Friday. Loved the moody menswear and big bouffants at Ruffian early on Friday morning (#seriouslyletswearourhairlikethis)...

...and went directly from there to visit some friends on the chevron striped floors at the The Lake and Stars presentation.
Most of you know I have loved this brand for some time. The detailing was so beautiful in person, and paired perfectly with Vince Camuto heels. Congrats to Maayan and Nikki, who looked so beautiful there.

Joy Cioci

 The presentation at Joy Cioci was very ethereal. Rhinestone cuffs, pops of red-orange, and edgy details mixed in among the wintry ruffles are some things I will remember most from this collection.

Christian Siriano

 I was so flattered to be invited to the Christian Siriano show last night. I am a huge fan of his work. Let me show you why.

Rachel Comey Hair

I was lucky enough to get a very close look at the ladies at Rachel Comey. Not only was the show filled with high waistlines and knitwear- but the hair was so creative.

Thursday, February 10, 2011

We have just arrived back in NYC for fashion week, so for the next few days my blog will be full of the beautiful things I am seeing- both on runways and backstage. Stay tuned... and be sure to follow on twitter.

B* Mine - Dallas + Kate Spade

I am so overjoyed to share that I have teamed up with one of my favorite companies, Kate Spade , for a project called B* Mine. I created valentine that you can send free to all of your friends and loved ones from their website! It is available now through Valentines Day. So go there now to share the love!


These are my very favorite sweetheart macaroons from sucre (I just ordered these this week for someone special), and earrings from Sharon Khazzam. I think they go perfectly together.

After some searching, we found a new townhome that will serve as a work/ living space for us. I have been working with the talented Megan at meganthology on my new living room. After using a few pieces that my husband and I already owned as inspiration, this is the overall idea that Megan has is store for us!!! Cannot wait to share more of this project with you!

In stitches...

I can draw you anything, but I cannot stitch you anything. 
That's why I think this piece might be just perfect for our office.
