The photo is by Olivia Graham- who I refer to as Olivia Glam.  and those SHOES? They are louboutin for marchesa (and I have been spending hour after hour wondering how I can make them louboutin for Dallas Shaw).
Been dying to tell you who I'll be working with next. Sharing a BIG announcement with all of you tomorrow on the blog, as well as on twitter

I spent an entire 5 days with some friends (love you sam and kim) in the outer banks- which for me is an eternity. Pretty much b/c is you are a successful creative person, you work every second of every day. I did get some work done, just from the sand.
Now I am back, and back to drawing all things fashion. Here are a few things that remind me of my time among the jellyfish and ghost crabs.

botkier + purse blog

As most of you may know- aside from this blog I am a full time artist in the fashion industry. I recently had the pleasure of working with purseblog and botkier on their most rceent collaboration. You will be able to see headers soon at purseblog, and you can see these images right now at their twitter page. Isn't the bag they designed fantastic?

while I'm away

 I am with a few friends in the outer banks. For those of you who know me, you know that the mini trip is much needed. I have worked harder than I ever have in my life this past month. While I am away, I wanted to hare a few pretty photos that I enjoyed this week. I'll be here while I'm gone!

the french house

When I spotted these doors on a blog this week, I immediately named the french house one of my new go-to's for furniture. One of my favorite sections of the site is where they have this seating- that you can buy as is or pay to have restored. You can see such character in each piece. These are the types of pieces I look forward to adding to my place.

Also I would like to invite my blog readers to the Wendy Mink store for a great sale! You know NYC is my second home. It's at the wendy mink store location: Thurs 22nd - 24th 12-7pm and 25th 12-6pm, at 72 Orchard St, NY NY 10002

Today is your last day to enter this. Good luck xo

blueberry dish dinner

Just recently, I had the priviledge of joining a few very good friends at the latest dish dinner- where I got to meet a few more of the nicest , and most creative, women in town. This dinner was at Kathy's beautiful home. Don't miss the amazing photos Laura took that evening. Just scroll down a bit - you won't be able to miss it ;)
On another personal note- you know I have been kind of obsessing over the missoni home collectin at all modern. Here is what I decided on. Wanted to share since it matched my post! (Next up, a new coffee maker - any suggestions?)

As some friends know, I love amazing homes. I am been in some jawdropping spaces this year. I drove all the way to North Caroline just to tour a nexthouse - was worth it, and is in the running.

Just a few items for a glam summer today. Nothing completes a summer like a classic black swimsuit.
