it's super rainy lately,
but i guess looking back around this time it's always rainy in new york.
honestly, i love it.
i can wear flats and stay indoors all day without feeling guilty.

after my first little green dress sketch,
i was inspired to do another one.
i tend to wear black pants with everything.
i have more black pants then any other pant color.
i rarely ever wear black otherwise.
so here it is, another little sketch:
|of course instagram makes everything better!|
you can follow me (which is also the same account i use to post twinko pics)
lately i've been thinking about what my "talent" is.
sometimes, you just want to feel good at something-
and of course, i'm not the best artist or illustrator or designer in the world,
but i do have a lot of fun doing these quick sketches.
hopefully i'll keep it up!
anything fun and relaxing it worth doing if it makes you happy.
<3 great way to wind down from a long day <3
*if you didn't know, i use ink and watercolor, with a little bit of brush markers*
happy friday everyone!!!

so i made this green dress a couple of weeks ago.
yes, a green dress.
i normally don't wear color, but i had the fabric
(thank you kathy zimmer)
and i had no money
so i decided to make something really quick.
unfortunately, this green dress and my very very incredibly short stature makes me look like an elf.
ok, ok, i'm being crazy..
but really, i'm not used to wearing a bold color- especially on so much of my body, that i feel self conscious in it.
i decided i wanted to a little embroidery to break up the color.
as i was doodling some ideas,
i just started making my whole outfit in a sketch.
this is what i came up with:
|so the green is more of a true kelly (maybe actually darker than kelly) type of green- but i obviously mixed te colors poorly before painting ;P- then i added a little flower embroidery.|
maybe a little stitch at the neck and hem, and voila!
|it's officially fall now, so it's either a cardigan or a dress shirt.|
i went with cream dress shirt-
it's a little silk thing i got a long time ago.
my little black bag..
and these sheer black stockings.
they're from good ol' H&M..
the FANTASTIC part about them is that they hold up by themselves on your legs.
i hate feeling so uncomfortable and held in by regular stockings.
it doesn't let me eat, let alone breathe,
but these just stay nicely up without any discomfort--I get a new pair every year, because the silicon band wears out over washes.Then my little bow loafers.
well, not really, now i have to embroider the bugger.
i'll do it though ;)
then show you!
<3 happy wednesday <3
