Wednesday Wishlist…

off-the-shoulder-joanna-bakerHappy middle of the week! We’re half way there =) I’m loving all the off-the-shoulder blouses trending this summer, they’re so feminine and pretty! I stumbled upon this look by Caitlin from Dash of Darling and just had to sketch. Lace + eyelet + pale blues + feather whites = perfection. Here are some other off-the-shoulder lovelies I found and have been adding to my summer wish list!

1. Floral Bell Sleeve Blouse from TopShop
2. Cold Shoulder Tee from Urban Outfitters
3.Lace Floral Blouse from Asos
4. Ditzy Floral Top from TopShop
5. Daisy Blouse from TopShop
6. Striped Blouse from Asos

Have a great rest of your week, hope it’s happy and productive!

Miss Ladyfinger X Joanna Baker…

This lovely lady is a very talented friend and former co-worker… and it’s about time I turned her into a fashion sketch! Taryn Multack of the fabulous nail art blog Miss Ladyfinger is such an inspiration for me. A couple years back, she left her day job (just in time for fashion week) and took a leap of faith to pursue her nail art career full time.

She’s had so much success with followers from around the world, fashion week passes every season since to cover all the amazing nail designs backstage, and dozens of magazine features… even a TV appearance! If you don’t already know her, I suggest you hop on over to her blog immediately and check out her twice weekly nail designs for yourself.

When Taryn saw my Instagram post of our mutual friend’s custom fashion birthday illustration, she had to have one! And after going through some of her favorite looks to illustrate, she left it up to me to decide, so I surprised her with this one from NYFW. It’s definitely not fall-like, but I couldn’t get over the color in this vintage top. I knew it would make for a fun illustration!

I hope you have a great Tuesday, here’s hoping this week is a short one… lately I’ve been living for weekends. I should really just wear this sweatshirt 24/7 =)

Happy October! I know I’m late to ring in the new month… nearly a half month late, yikes! My fashion design day job has literally taken over my life the past couple weeks and I just now had a moment to decompress from the stress and sketch some pretty things!

And the perfect way to celebrate the *half way point of a* new month? Sketching a chic fall transitional look by Ania B! After the lovely model/blogger wrote a sweet comment on my last Instagram post, I went over to check out her site and found a beautiful, of-the-moment fashion, and personal style blog. You should definitely have a look for yourself!

It’s so great making connections over Instagram and I love making new blog friends. Thanks, Ania for being this week’s blogger inspiration!

Fall is in the air in NYC… it was so cool last week you could feel the seasons changing! That’s not to say we won’t have a few warm days next week but it’s enough to get me excited about dressing for fall.

This look by Helena Glazer of Brooklyn Blonde is exactly how you celebrate the new season. Fabulous from head to toe and I love the amazing hat!

We’re relaxing this Sunday with the hubby’s homemade chili and a bit of football – I’m drawing, he’s watching =) Have a great rest of your weekend!
