Art Murals in Downtown West Palm Beach

  So I was boppin around downtown West Palm Beach and came across this outdoor lounge area. I’m just in awe of the art murals. They give a space so much dimension. I’m not sure if all of these murals were done by Amanda Valdes but she did do the “Day of the Dead” woman above. One of these days perhaps I will get around to doing an art mural myself. I’m loving them, how about you?

Hailee Steinfeld in Viktor & Wolf’s “No Photos Please” Dress at The Met Gala

I remember seeing this “No Photos Please” dress by Viktor and Wolf on the Spring Couture 2019 runway. The dresses made a fashion statement even without the literal statements on the dresses. What a way to do tulle! I just loved the look and the camera she carried was a great note to add to the look.

What was your favorite dress of the evening?

Still Rockin That Blue Lip

Hey y’all! So I’m still rocking that blue lip. I’ve been on the grind with a new fabulous project including my artwork. It’s been challenging keeping up with everything but I am super stoked. How have you been? Are you excited for the Met Gala tonight? Tonight’s theme is “Camp: Notes on Fashion.” Guess we’ll have to see how it is being interpreted.

Anyway, have an amazing week!

Black and White on the Runway for Fall/Winter 2019

Jeremy Scott

So black and white are a classic color combination. But who knew we would spot so much of the combo on the runway for the Fall/Winter 2019? While there has definitely been a good bit of color injected into the season, we’ve seen almost entire collections like Jeremy Scott feature the classic color combination. Longchamp, Area and more featured the color combo. See more below!

New Year, New Suit!

So how is your New Year going so far? Maybe you are trying to get a new job or start a business. Anyway, we all need that suit to dress to impress. I found this blue suit from Zara last year. It was chic and affordable, and to my knowledge didn’t rip off any specific designers. Yea I buy from Zara sometimes but you have to be careful with them. We all know fast fashion has a dark side and if you buy from them, you just need to be mindful of the lower cost production and designer knockoffs.

The suit seems to be sold out but I found these cropped blue Theory pants on sale at Farfetch and this Milly blazer on sale at Revolve. I paired my suit with a pair of blue vintage Giuseppe Zanotti pumps. Check out more photos below!

Charcoal Flower Sketch on Cardboard

Hey there.

Hope you’re week is off to a good start.

So sometimes you just want to sketch on cardboard. Flowers are so beautiful. I was motivated to sketch some on something that could be easily thrown away. It’s like wearing grungy sneakers with a lace skirt…a lovely contradiction of sorts that actually works.

Anyway, enjoy!

Sincerely,
