VINTAGE INSPIRATION

On Friday after work Karen and I met up and went for a bit of vintage shopping. I didn't end up buying anything (yes I was shocked too) but I must say I was incredibly inspired... which drove me to start some vintage inspired designs (above).
As you can see I have a thing for Rompers right now! big clunky jewelry and I'm also on the hunt for a belt with an awesome massive gold buckle... yes I know I'm not asking for much!

This weekend I was rammed with big fat clutch orders... well when I say rammed I mean 3, but I finished and I feel awfully productive and good about myself :D
OH and I also had some fun dripping pink fluorescent paint into my sketchbook ...bye bye!

Wow,I love love the sketches you draw!! Are you going to design those?? Ohhh girl,maybe you can start making your own clothes too:)

I'm shocked too you didn't buy anything while on your vintage trip but that only means you'll find something fab soon.

Know what,I'm thinking of buying the mint green clutch from you! Ahaha

I looove rompers right now, even with all the strange stares my family and friends give me when I wear them. These sketches are brilliant; I can't wait til you start making some prototypes! Also, where do we order big fat clutches?

These sketches are amazing! They kind of remind me of android fashionistas lol. :)

btw, I think it would be cool if you made a clutch in that pink colour :)
