Fashion and Coffee: National Coffee Day

Current Cravings

Happy National Coffee Day!

I was raised in Seattle, so my love for coffee was inevitable! My preferred drink is a cafe latte with a touch of hazelnut and caramel. Even if you are not a coffee drinker, there’s still reason to celebrate today ‘cause it’s Friday!

Blogger Portrait: Dee for Dana

Current Cravings

Beautiful with an amazing sense of style, my latest blogger portrait features Dee, of Dee for Dana. Dee’s fashion choices manage to be elegant and sophisticated while still conveying a sense of playfulness. Case in point, those impossibly sunny yellow heels she’s wearing in this illustration.  She’s a fashionista after my own heart, because we share a love of cooking and 90’s hip hop and R&B.

Craving Spring Trends: Chokers and Ruffles 

Current Cravings

My series on standout Spring 2016 clothing and accessory pairings continues with a second combination: ruffles and chokers.

A ruffled dress paired with a choker is a classic pairing that can come off as little “costumey” if you’re not careful. But done right, the look can be romantic with a slight edge. The jewel tones of this Alice + Olivia dress and this Christian Dior choker keeps this look fresh, not “costumey.”

Chokers also pair well with slip dresses (for a very ’90s look). Which combination do you prefer, chokers and ruffles or chokers and slip dresses?

Dance Like Nobody’s Watching: Proenza Schouler Spring 2016

Current Cravings

You can dance like nobody’s watching, but if you’re wearing this Proenza Schouler tiered ruffled dress, chances are that all eyes will be on you. Of course a Pantene commercial worthy hair flip is pretty attention grabbing as well.

Craving Spring Trends: Statement Earrings & Off the Shoulder Tops

Current Cravings

This post is the first in a series featuring craveable Spring 2016 trends. Specifically, I will be sharing illustrations that highlight standout clothing and accessory pairings.

The first pairing is statement earrings and off the shoulder tops. These Rodarte earrings are undeniable showstoppers, but when paired with this The Row top, both pieces work together to draw attention to the shoulders. And showing off your shoulders is not only universally flattering, but can be a sophisticated way to show a little skin.

What do you think of statement earrings paired with off the shoulder tops?

In the coming weeks, I’ll be sharing more illustrations featuring Spring 2016 trend pairings. Which spring trends are you planning to incorporate into your wardrobe?
