Calypso St. Barth Soiree Launch

11.15.2012

Thursday November 8th, I was honored to showcase my Art inspired by the Calypso St. Barth new Soiree Collection in their Meat Packing District store.  I was asked to pick a piece from the collection and paint my interpretation of it.  I of coursed  decided on the sequin chevron dress and turned it into an explosion of bright watercolors, naming the piece “Sequins Are My Music”.   While painting I pictured the perfect evening in the perfect dress(this one by the way!) and how that would make any lady feel. You can see my painting process below–minus my mini dance breaks I took in between.  The evening of the event was full of champagne and yes, sparkles!  The Soiree Collection is elegant yet daringly fun gearing us all up for excitement for the Holiday Season! Also presenting art were Artists Sarah Reynolds, Katie Rodgers from Paper Fashion and  hosted Kerri Lisa from Gallery Girls.

Fan Club: Late Afternoon

When I saw Liz from Late Afternoon‘s most recent post with vintage signs….I just had to illustrate it!  I love vintage signs, reminds me of L.A. in the 70′s(I obsessively watch Charlie’s Angels).  And here are a few of my fave looks of Liz, it was hard to pick-her style is so romantic, i love it!

It’s been awhile since i wore a pair of jeans. I am more of a skirts + dresses kind of girl.  At the Evolving  Influence conference during Fashion week we each got to be measured for the new Levis Curve ID and be gifted a pair of jeans.  I was fitted as a Demi Curve, and i love love love them!  Now I am a jeans girl! I even found a way to get all dressed up in them for a dinner party!
