Runway Look: Johanna Ortiz Fall 2018

Current Cravings

Although it’s from Johanna Ortiz’s Fall 2018 collection, this dress is the epitome of sultry and sophisticated summer vibes. This bold red flowing dress, belted by a sumptuous over-sized tropical flower, embodies the aesthetic I can’t wait to play with this summer. That aesthetic is sultry, feminine and apologetic.

My Illustrated Guide to Styling 3 of the Hottest Trends

Current Cravings, Illustrated Style Guide

Click here to download the guide.

I’m so excited to share my latest illustrated style guide with you, because it’s bigger and better than any of my previous guides. For this guide I focused on 3 straight-from-the-runway trends: Pattern Play, Sheer Joy and Punk, Polished and Pretty.

About the Trends:

Pattern Play. One of the hottest fresh-off-the-runway trends, but often the most intimidating to style in real life. The pattern-mixing trend is about incorporating more than one pattern into an outfit.

Sheer Joy. Integrate sheer elements into elements into your outfits to produce looks that are feminine and playful. Whether you choose a sheer lace blouse or a dress with sheer details, wearing sheer pieces is about adding visual interest to your look, rather than being overexposed.

Punk, Polished and Pretty. This is a luxe and feminine approach to adding rock star vibes to your outfits. The aim is to mix punk elements with feminine and refined pieces.

About the Guide:

For this guide, I collaborated with 5 amazing women, each with their own unique personal style, on this project. Specifically, I asked each lady to pick a trend and style it. All their looks and tons of advice on how to style these 3 trends, can be found in my in the guide. Click here to download the guide.

Grammys 2018: SZA in Atelier Versace

Current Cravings

One of my favorite red carpet looks from this year’s Grammys was SZA in Atelier Versace. SZA definitely has a signature style, and I love that she looked like a glammed up version of herself instead of someone who received a complete red carpet style overhaul.

Runway Look: Fendi Spring 2018

Current Cravings

This look from Fendi’s Spring 2018 collection pairs stripes with plaid and a logo print.

Pattern mixing is not for the timid. And for good reason. Done not so well, it can look like you got dressed in the dark. Done well, it can produce a look that is playful, confident and sophisticated.

Are you a fan of pattern mixing?

Let it Snow: My Take on Vintage Christmas Card Illustrations

Current Cravings

Let it Snow! Off to spread some Christmas cheer in a Miu Miu (faux) fur hat and cozy coat.

Merry Christmas! Here’s the last piece in my series of drawings inspired by vintage Christmas card illustrations.

For my take on vintage Christmas card illustrations, I used pieces from Miu Miu’s Fall 2017 collection in the drawings and as inspiration for the overall palette for the series. I think the retro silhouettes and the bright happy colors featured in Miu Miu’s collection are a perfect fit for a modern take on vintage Christmas card illustrations.

There are countless vintage Christmas cards that feature a well dressed woman holding presents while walking a dog. It’s arguably one of the more common themes illustrated on vintage cards. I feel like my series of vintage card inspired illustrations would be incomplete without a drawing of a woman walking her dog in the snow on Christmas. Usually the breeds featured on Christmas cards are poodles and Scottish terriers. But for this illustration I went with my personal favorite, a shih tzu. But not just any shih tzu, I included my fur baby Stelio in the drawing.

What’s more festive than (faux) fur shoes embellished with sparkly buckles? Off to holiday parties, dressed in head to toe Miu Miu with piles of gifts in hand.

This is the second in my series of Christmas themed illustrations featuring pieces from Miu Miu’s Fall 2017 collection.

The illustrations on vintage Christmas cards inspired the vibe of the drawings in this series. I think the retro silhouettes and the bright happy colors featured in Miu Miu’s collection are a perfect fit for a modern take on vintage Christmas card illustrations.

By the way, I will be posting the last illustration in this series in a few days.
