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.

Christmas is just around the corner, and there’s still so much shopping to do. Not only do you have to find presents for everyone on your Christmas list, but you have to put together fab outfits for all the Holiday parties this month.

I’m feeling festive, so I decided to do a few Christmas themed illustrations featuring pieces from Miu Miu’s Fall 2017 collection. This is the first in the series.

Runway Look: Saint Laurent Fall 2017

Current Cravings

There’s a reason why pairing a sparkly dress with strappy heels is a “go-to”outfit for holiday parties. Simply put, it’s an almost fool proof formula for pulling together a festive and glam look. But if you are craving a glam holiday ensemble that is a bit more edgy, these runway looks from Saint Laurent’s Fall 2017 Collection are a great source of outfit inspiration. Specifically, you can wear an asymmetrical party dress or a lingerie inspired dress with slouchy boots. Or instead of boots, you can opt for a statement pump (preferably patent leather) in a bright color. Oh and by the way, if you go with a slinky lingerie inspired dress, you should pair it with an oversized double-breasted coat. Not only will it add drama to the overall look, but it will also keep the frostbite at bay.

Black Blazer-Sublime Cravings IllustrationBasic but never boring. I adore a well-cut blazer.

One of the first bits of fashion advice I received from my mom was that a good fitting blazer is versatile, effortless and can elevate almost any look.

Runway Look: Tom Ford Spring 2018

Current Cravings

Whether in pale pink silk or bold pink velvet, these blazers make a statement. I love these 2 looks from Tom Ford’s Spring 2018 runway show. The key to the sophistication of these looks is the contrast of textures and colors. For instance sumptuous silk is paired with chain mail in the look on the left, and it is paired with velvet in the look on the right. Also, blush tone pieces provide a perfect contrast for the strategic pops of color from the velvet blazer and cap-toe pumps.

Kimonos are the perfect seasonal transitional piece. You can wear it with shorts and a tank in the summer, and with jeans and a tee shirt in the fall. Also, floral kimonos are beautiful statement pieces that can be dressed up or down.


A gorgeous floral kimono paired with jeans and slip ons is perfect for an early morning walk with your fuzzy BFF.

Do you have a “go-to” transitional piece that bridges your summer and fall wardrobe?

Chloe Everything!

Current Cravings

Chloe Everything - Sublime Cravings IllustrationHow would I define the Chloe aesthetic? Feminine, carefree, and somehow effortlessly chic.

The Chloe vibe is all about grounding unabashedly whimsical feminine elements with structured elements in an unfussy, nonchalant way. Case in point, chic Carlina sunglasses and a structured Nile bracelet bag temper a pink floaty dress. Or consider this dress embellished with oversized embroidered flowers. Because it is rendered in blue and paired with a Faye backpack, the overall feel of the look is chic and sophisticated rather than juvenile.
