Art lately.

 I saw something very similar to this on etsy and it inspired me. A friend has “commissioned” me to paint a large canvas for his new apartment and this was one of the sketches I was considering doing..later I added some sharp black lines. I really love making art with gemoetrical shapes.

 I found this in one of my old journals when I was looking for a password or something. I thought it would be a cool idea to do a gallery showing of artists’ journal pages. I would love to see something like that!

 This is my new chalkboard wall in my apartment (I hope my landlord hasn’t seen this!!) I had a quote by Emily Dickinson on the wall with some really bright framing shapes and colors and it was too much. Plus, I change my mind so often that this works perfectly for me! I can change it whenever I want. I try not to think of the hassle it will cause me when it’s time to move out! 

 glug glug.

 Okay, *le sigh* This is my latest project and has taken a considerable amount of time! A few weekends ago, my husband and I went to the Chicago Renegade Craft Fair, and I was feeling very inspired. One artist I particularly liked was Dolan Geiman. He did some beautiful and intricate artworks using magazine pages. I like the different textures and colors and a project like this is perfect for my OCD tendencies. I get to collect little scraps of paper and sort through old magazines cutting and gluing things for hours!

Okay, so..hahaha…As someone kindly pointed out to me: “isn’t it ‘Not all who WANDER are lost”? yup! It is! ah, well. I took things to a whole other level without even realizing it. Maybe my true calling is philosophy? No? okay…

Holiday Dresses.

The Holiday Season is my favorite time of the year, for many reasons. And one of those reasons is holiday dresses! Maybe I love it so much because as a kid, I got to pick out a frilly new dress every year on Christmas and Easter. 

I love not only her dress, but the whole outfit. I really want a pair of those lime-sh, mustard color (can’t think of a better description for the color) tights. Her necklace and shoes are also perfect for this simple white dress.

Gold Leaf Cocktail Dress from Anthropologie  $258.00

I want this dress for New Year’s Eve. It’s like a party in dress form. 🙂

Lasercut Sheath Dress from Anthropologie $225.00

This is one of my favorites. I love all of the detail of the lace especially around the neck. Just for fun,  I might go for some bright red or blue closed toe heels.

Delightful As A Feather from Mod Cloth $272.99

This is another “dream” dress because at almost $300.00 there is no way  I could afford it. But if I could, I’d wear it every chance I got.

Ever Soho Stylish Dress from Mod Cloth $54.99

Not only is this dress stylish and perfect for the Holidays, the price is even better!

Flappy Go Lucky Dress from Mod Cloth $89.99

I have to admit, I love that sweater dresses are making a comeback. I think this dress is so cute for less formal occasions; paired with white or navy colored tights and brown or tan boots.
