I found this how-to post on Glitter Guide and am now obsessed with pink sofas! This one is just so darn cute and I know it would never make its way into the apartment. When the BF and I merged our lives into an UES one-bedroom, he had two decorating rules: no pink and no flowers. (Soo boring!) Oh well... all I can do is pin, illustrate, and move on. =)

I've been carrying around what my co-workers have deemed "the mom wallet." A nearly exploding sandwich of a wallet that is weighing me down (literally) and holding me back. We're talking every insurance card and school ID I've ever owned, not to mention many many (most likely expired) gift cards that are surely more than six years old. I really don't know how this happened...
Well I have a habit of holding onto things... in case I might need them! And it has come to a point where my five pound wallet is causing me pain. So to force myself into a cute, chic, slim wallet I thought I'd illustrate some potential purchases. I hope you like =)

It all started with some nail polish I got in a swag bag from last month's Bloggerini event. I actually used some to glitterize my sketch =) Glittery nails just feel fancier than plain old polish... I don't know if I'll ever go back! I hope you're having a lovely week... the weather in NYC is unseasonably warm. Here's to a happy Spring!

Spring for some reason is synonymous with stripes in my mind. I definitely need more stripes in my life. Mara Ferreira's always adorable style, featured on her blog M Loves M, is perfect for the winter-spring transition... a great pop of color with black & white stripes. Here's hoping that consistently warm weather is just around the corner! Have a good rest of your week =)

Happy Wednesday, everyone! I've been seeing floral pants pop up everywhere while out window shopping and browsing my favorite blogs. It's almost enough to make me want a pair of my own! Now that a new Anthropologie moved in a few blocks from my apartment (a very gorgeous space at that, it's at 71st and 3rd if you happen to be in the area!), I might just hop in on my way home from work and try these on with a cute chambray shirt.
And now for backstory on those lovely red-soled sandals...
When I entered the contest, I knew that part of the prize would be a gift from Christian Louboutin and Bergdorf Goodman. I also knew that I would get to keep the dress I made. Of course all of the designers were dying to find out what these mystery gifts were going to be!
When I went to pick up my design from Bergdorf Goodman PR offices, I was given my dress in a garment bag and a Bergdorf shopping bag completely stapled shut. I really wanted to rip the bag open in the downstairs lobby, but I contained myself long enough to carry it all home...
I got to my apartment, opened the bag and there were my beautiful Alta Dentelle shoes from the contest, wrapped in tissue paper! Also inside were two little boxes, one had a gift card to Bergdorf's and the other revealed a gift certificate to Christian Louboutin... enough to buy at least two pairs of his amazingly gorgeous shoes! The perfect end to an amazing journey that I still can't believe happened =) Time to go shoe shopping!!

Happy March! I'm a few days late but I wanted to celebrate one of my favorite months with a fabulously colorful shoe by Nicholas Kirkwood. I'm loving his floral pumps... these were featured on the cover of Lucky's March issue.
I love March because it's the start of spring, the BF has a birthday in the beginning of the month and I turn a year older at the end of the month. Lots to celebrate! Have a great week and I can't wait to share some more spring inspired sketches =)
