DRESS UP

I think I’ve officially hit the age where all of my friends are slowly getting married one by one, and I’m pretty excited about it… because it means having a reason to go all out and dress up!

Purple gown is Lela Rose.

This week I’m heading to a friend’s wedding in Puerto Rico, and decided to give Rent The Runway a shot. I wanted something light and elegant… and once I saw this mint Catherine Dean Godiva Gown, no other option could compare. I can’t wait to get it in the mail tomorrow. Have you ever tried Rent the Runway?

Happy Memorial Day!

IN THE SKETCHBOOK

Sketchbook_1

I’ve been sketching for what seems like, my entire life. It’s something that feels natural to me. Truth is, I can barely remember a day that I haven’t sketched… or at least doodled on a receipt!

Sketchbook_4

Every now and then you have a day where your sketches don’t turn out quite how you imagine them, but that’s okay. Sometimes you just have to get those awful sketches out to warm up your hand. Your sketchbook is your safe zone, a place that is your own and can’t be judged.

I want to start sharing pieces of my sketchbook with you, both the good and the not so good. It’s a different process than my final paintings… but often the most satisfying form of art for me. Sketching generates ideas.

Do you find sketching to be freeing like I do? Keeping a sketchbook is a wonderful way to look back through the years and see how you’ve developed as an artist and thinker.

Art Print available here

The moment I stumbled upon a picture of Sonam Kapoor in this D&G gown… I fell in love! A brilliant application of floral print on a gown. Worn on the Red Carpet of the Cannes Film Festival.
