Wishing for Fall…

fall-wishlist-joanna-bakerNew York Fashion Week kicks off tomorrow and although fall clothes and sales are everywhere, New York is definitely still in a summer state of mind! It may be ninety degrees outside but that’s not stopping my day dreams of oversized coats, cozy scarves and the cutest red booties for the season. This tee adds the perfect touch of metallic and I’m in desperate need of some new Hunter wellies!

I’m excited to be able to attend a few events for fashion week while I work through commissions and keep up on the latest fabulous things strutting down the runways. Be sure to follow me on Instagram for of-the-moment sketches as they happen =) I’ll be busy, busy, busy! On your mark…. get set…. sketch!!

Birthdays, Features, and Mentions…

birthdaycake-joanna-bakerHappy April!! This past week has been super exciting for more reasons than one and I’m so happy to be able to share it all with you. If you follow me on Instagram, you may know that a week ago today, I turned twenty-nine. That’s right, it’s the last official year of my twenties and I can’t believe I’m that much closer to thirty!! Yikes. According to my eight year old self, I should be married by now, have a house in the country and a horse in the backyard. Thankfully I can check at least one of those things off that list =) I had a moment last week where the realization of “thirty” caught me off guard. I gave it about five seconds of thought and then moved on… there’s too much to do to be worried about that one!

I had a great birthday and was lucky enough to soak up the morning sunshine while strolling through the floral district, get a glittered mani-pedi, meet with a client downtown, try my first ever doughnut from Dough (heaven), do a little window shopping, have birthday drinks at The Winslow and devour yummy birthday cake from Milk Bar. Life’s biggest moments are so much better when shared with friends!

There is some exciting shop news to be revealed shortly but in the meantime, I wanted to share a couple of Instagram mentions… march-april-press-joanna-baker

Copic markers are my go-to for all my illustrations and last night, Copic featured my floral eiffel tower illustration on their Instagram! My collection of Copics is one of my most prized possessions so I was excited to get mentioned on their feed. It’s about time I go to the art store and stock up on my favorites!

This morning I woke up to an Instagram mention from Bergdorf Goodman… the holy grail of fashion… who featured my Christian Louboutin shoe sketch on their Instagram account. So exciting!! I visited BG on Saturday and pretty much drooled over these amazing beauties… I knew they just had to be sketched =)

All the wonderful comments and support I’ve gotten on social media over the past couple of weeks have been amazing. Sometimes it’s hard to put work out there and wonder what happens to it…does anyone see it? Does it just sort of float off into the Instagram stratosphere? You are all so kind and those encouraging comments help get me through the inevitable times of doubt. Thank you so much, dear readers, and if you’d like to catch glimpses of my works in process, be sure to follow me on Instagram! xoxo

Wednesday Wishlist…

I’m finally back in the city after a really nice time with my family… relaxing, making a delicious ice-cream cake, going to the beach, taking a morning ride with my Dad in his plane. The suburbs are just. so. comfortable. And it’s hard to come home to a tiny one-bedroom apartment after stretching out in all that space…

This last bit of summer has been quite kind to us on the east coast. The temperatures have been pretty mild which is kinda strange, usually its pushing 100 degrees and I’m dying for tights and boot weather! But this time around, I’m looking for that perfect transitional dress… the kind you can wear in August and then throw a jacket over as it starts to get chilly.

This floral dress is the perfect in-between-er. I’m super excited to have gotten this jacket on sale a couple days ago, and am in love with these new fall booties. Hope you’ll add these to your pre-fall wishlist =) Happy Wednesday, everyone!
