This ensemble is almost as lustrous as one’s skin after it’s experienced NIVEA!
Finally, some beautiful weather has graced this forsaken state. Just as I was about to stuff my worldly possessions into my Marc By Marc Jacobs bag (aka Ol’ Dusty) and hitch-hike my way to Cali, the sun came around!
The school year is coming to a close, and I’m happy with where I’m at. I’ve been earning steady high grades, writing for the FAB magazine, making more time for myself to illustrate, and am starting to turn my focus onto summer goals.
1. Learn html coding and Adobe design programs 2. Take more time to set up photoshoots (with a tripod or a sister to help, since selfie shots are embarrassing me more and more by the day. I willingly acknowledge that my pictures are selfies. It hurts my ego so, so badly. Anyway..) 3. Save up that cash and purchase the YSL Arty Ring (turquoise, coral or lapis–IN THAT ORDER OF PREFERENCE!!!) 4. Illustrate / draw and experiment with several mediums and stroke styles 5. Commissioned jewelry and illustrations–find clients who’d benefit from my work! 6. Design and create more jewelry 7. Collect as much vintage-y, crystal-y, chunky jewelry… to be made into jewelry/accessories and embellishments! Along with studs and spikes. 8. Write songs! **IN FRENCH. 9. Record youtube videos of myself singing my written songs, to send to Garance Dore in hopes that she will be so wooed by my skills that she will take me in as her intern…
My father suggest that I’m too ambitious 🙂 But that’s how it should be when you’re young!
Writing down those goals helps solidify them. I’m all the more determined now.
This look centers around iconic designs by YSL, Gucci, the up-and-coming designer, Mary Katrantzou, and of course, Chiara Ferragni and her shoe designs! This jet-set outfit is professional and doesn’t require “costume change” when leaving one place and flying in someplace else. Despite one’s fatigue after a grueling plain ride, these clothes’ polish and sharp yet comfortable tailoring more than mask any signs of weariness!
I could not upload some pictures, but I’m going to be combining outfits from these photos with faces of friends. I’m trying to work with mixed media more now, as well.
I have a few different illustration collaborations coming up, which I’m very excited about!
I’ll update again soon with a few more outfits and a picture of my Natalia Vodianova illustration. Enjoy the weather!!!!
Bonjour, mes chers!
Last night I decided to dress a bit more bohemian, in the spirit of attending a party at the U of M student co-op! It was sooo, so fun. Everyone is so nice and creative there. Lots of people put up their artwork on the walls of the co-op, including me. Super fun to look at the variety of work! I’m getting excited for my gallery (to be shown at Espresso Royale in Mpls this summer, July-August)! I need to expand my body of work, for sure. I’m hoping to start taking my own photographs from which to work. I love drawing from pictures by greats like Meisel, Demarchelier, Helmut Newton etc. etc. … even newer guys like Scott, Tommy Ton, Garance… (she isn’t a guy, per se. But she pulls off the man clothes like none other.) .. but I don’t feel quite original when I do that.
I’m so happy that the sun is peeking out this weekend. It doesn’t help me focus on the pile of homework coming my way, however.
Speaking of which…goodbye.
