Hello everyone! I am back home in Chicago! Unlike sunny Annapolis, Chicago has been cast into a haze of fog. The skyscrapers are tucked away into the haze of grey clouds and what is left is Millennium Park’s beautiful flower gardens. For those of you that have made your way to Millennium Park, you are familiar with the many sculptures and the tucked away gardens that reside under the Modern Wing’s bridge that leads up into the Art Institute. For this shoot I am wearing my new co-ord from Topshop. One of my absolute favorite prints is plaid. Unlike many prints, plaid manages to pull off a rustic, homey, livable feel that I simply love. I wear lots of plaid (especially in the colder months) so of course when I saw this plaid co-ord with a knee length skirt, a bit of midriff, and paired with matching top, I instantly loved it! Enjoy!
My Look: Topshop limited edition co-ord, Nordstrom flats, locket, Kate Spade car purse, Swarovski earrings, and charm bracelet (a gift from my Grandma for all of my memories)
Designers are coming out with their 2015 fall and winter collections as they hit the runways in all the fashion capitols of the globe! One of my favorite designers is Dolce and Gabbana! Every collection is based upon a story and an inspiration. From the golden Justinian dresses paired with glittering tiaras, to the maidens in woe dressed in black lace, and all the way to the Greek pillars and flowers imprinted on white dresses. All of their designs with their fabulous ad campaigns are simply great! When the show came out on their website I was mesmerized and have now watched the show four times! I know, a little crazy, but when you see the capes and fur that are strutting down the runways you too will be transported within the pages of a fairy tale! I drew up one of my favorite pieces from Dolce and Gabbana’s new, wonderful collection! The link to this fabulous show: http://www.dolcegabbana.com/woman/fashion-show/runway-video/
This next drawing is one that I drew from a live model at Vitruvian Fine Art Studio! Every Saturday for four hours I was able to draw. This drawing took me about twenty hours in full.
