Fashion is so wonderfully expressive. It's wearable art, really. The colors, the fabric and movement... It all just lights me up! I often tell my guy, 'If I were filthy rich, oh, the fashion I'd wear...' He normally cringes just a little bit. But I think he's curious.
Everywhere I go I'm always commenting on my favorite street looks, accessory pops, and elegant or edgy ensembles. I usually even compliment strangers when their sense of style so moves me. They may think I'm crazy, but I don't care... I simply can't help myself. ;) It only makes sense that when I moved to one of the most fashionable cities on the planet, I was moved to start illustrating fashion. I adore my oil abstracts and figure painting, though there's also something about illustrating fashion with magical watercolors that also flutters my heart.
So, Yeah -- Baby, it's really really cold outside, but I couldn't help but illustrate this sweet, light & edgy denim number via Citizens Of Humanity. Swoon.
If I had to commit to a uniform, it would hands-down be blue jeans, a black tank top, maybe some layerables, and always boots & a jacket - or sandals and a light scarf in warmer climates. I would never tier!
Ok, back to reality. Next illustration, winter coats and very cherry red Hunter boots. (Hint Hint, Santa)
