Golden Globes 2021: Regina King in Louis Vuitton

Current Cravings

The last red carpet look I illustrated was Regina King at the 2020 Oscars, which was just before the start of the pandemic. As the 2021 red carpet season approached, I was not sure that I wanted to draw any red carpet looks this year. Obviously that uncertainty did not last very long.

I’m a fan of Regina King’s acting, directing and red carpet lewks. So given my affinity for Regina King, it makes sense that seeing her in this custom Louis Vuitton gown made it impossible for me to not draw this red carpet (by way of Zoom) look.

Growth

Current Cravings
Sublime Cravings Growth

Growth means different things to different people. For me it means doing the internal work that is necessary for me to unapologetically be myself and take up space.

I’ve learned that hacks and shortcuts aren’t sustainable ways to supercharge growth. Also, a general intention to change a particular habit is not sufficient for achieving substantial, long lasting growth. Instead, growth requires a commitment to small, specific and meaningful changes over a prolonged period of time. Inherent in the growth process are missteps, and even moments of relapse. Embrace the process and remember that growth is a journey, not a destination.

Be kind to yourself. And be sure to prune the things in your life that hinder your growth.

I also created animated version that you can check out below:

Don’t Let Them Tame You

Current Cravings

Sublime Cravings Illustration - Mixed Animal Prints

Confession… I can be pretty awkward. So when I see other women leaning into their awkwardness, uniqueness and wonderful quirks, it gives me so much joy.

I say forget fitting in and making yourself “small” in the face of intimidation. Forget making yourself small with the hope that no one will discover you’re weird.

Don’t let them tame you!

Claim your uniqueness. Claim your voice. Claim your space in this world.

Luxe in Paradise: Valentino Resort 2019

Current Cravings

Luxe in Paradise - Sublime Cravings Illustration

There’s something so timeless and effortlessly glam about donning a lovely patterned scarf and pairing it with statement sunnies and earrings. In fact every look in Valentino’s 2019 Resort Collection featured head-scarfs, sunnies and large earrings. This illustration features a flowing maxi sundress, over-sized sunnies, a beautiful headscarf and hoop earrings. I decided to add lush foliage and a frosty drink to create a tropical and carefree vibe.

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.

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?
