All the Pretty Colors

It seems that everything I was taking pictures of this past week were super colorful, with the exception of a few...
 A mandala on the wall at Free People Walnut St. in Philly.

Ikea's room facade at the Philly Home Show inspired by Yayoi Kusama's, Obliteration Room!

My new necklace from Carly Marks (check out her stuff!). This necklace will be at Urban Outfitters soon! 

A dressing room illustration at Free People Walnut St. by Lital Gold.  

Moore's new lobby display! I love these kinds of setups!

Thinking About Clothing In A Totally New Way

I have this thing for clothing. Purely addictive. 
One the one hand it's the typical thrill of shopping, like anyone else,
but on the other it's this craving for different fabrics, fits, and good design.
Being an artist, I find the use of clothing, to be this endless ability to create something
that is entirely your own. 

Sometimes I overindulge on pieces that maybe I shouldn't spend so much on, but, then 
I think about those who collect paintings. They spend thousands, if not millions of dollars
on canvas splattered with paint. --and maybe it is just that, two materials colliding, but someone
had this miraculous vision for what they wanted that canvas to look like. There was thought, and time spent. Imagination. Something entirely new.

I am both the painter and the collector. 

If you think of a dress as merely a piece of fabric hanging on a hanger, well then to you I guess it's all it really is. But if you can think of it as this piece of fabric transformed into something that can make a woman look and feel beautiful, something that took a creative vision, thought, and time spent, with great design, then you have something beautiful and worth the cash.

Fall In Love With: Leopard Print

I've noticed leopard print popping up online and on the streets of Philadelphia lately, and clearly it's going to be a big trend in Spring. While a head-to-toe patterned look of any kind is too much to bear without feeling the need for sunglasses, hints of it here and there are always a great idea!
 Instead of picking up a leopard print dress (which is perfectly fine), opt for something a little more subtle like a pair of sunglasses, like the ones from Anthropologie below, or a bralette like the one I chose from Free People. If you're feeling a bit more daring, pair some comfy leopard ankle boots with a pair of black skinny jeans and your favorite top. I also am obsessed with the look Free People put together with a pair of leopard print harem pants, a crop white tee, and easy black sandals. Would you wear this trend?

Free People's Moroccan Romance Lookbook

Free People's January lookbook is a head-turner. Highly saturated colors meet long, beachy locks and flowy fabrics. It is definitely a strong point towards what's to come for the Spring!

A sneak peek of a shoot I did with one of my oldest friends, Cheyenne! The rest will come later this week! Stay tuned!
 My dreamcatchers I made for the Clover Market in Philly! I still have a few left if anyone wants to order one! :)

The beginning of the snow storm today. Classes have been cancelled and we are expecting over a foot!

I love the look of white dresses (heads up they will be popular in the Spring). They are so versatile and go with almost every accessory. Free People has a bunch which you can find here, and I pieced out three of my favorites below! Which one would you wear?
