♥ we live not according to reason, but according to fashion.

in fourth grade i had the opportunity to get into an art program called "ace."
i was asked to draw a shoe. any shoe. for some reason i attempted to draw
the most complicated looking shoe from my mother's closet.
i was not accepted. the what ifs still haunt me to this day.
"sami chu" could very well have been the next jimmy choo.

i have been following janelle burger for a while and really admire her
ability not only to capture gorgeous shoes, but also fashion models.
visit her etsy shop here. read her blog here.

these mixed media fashion illustrations from nicomazza etsy shop
include real swatches of vintage fabric. what a fabulous way to combine
all of my favorite things! L.O.V.E!!
(spotted here.)

  8. lol Sami Chu. Just realized you're from Boston as well, I love running into boston bloggers! I wasn't aware that BFW was this week. Seems like I've already missed most of the shows. I would really like to go to at least one before it's over, do you have any recommedations?

  9. you know what i saw her work before i always wonder if you had a blog so i'm about to go check it out

  10. unfortunately, i did not draw any of these, and do not have the remains of my failed shoe! i think i better stick to writing about fashion rather than attempting to draw it.
