Currently Obsessing...

Besides all the wedding madness, here's what's taking up precious space in my brain these days..

Can't Stop Coveting...
Ok Tracy Reese. Enough with the adorableness please. We have a honeymoon to pay for! I want everything Tracy Reese makes. EVERYTHING. So maybe I am on a shopping hiatus for a while, but I can still dream, right? Right. Besides, her Frock Line (see some of my faves from the Spring 2010 Collection below) is absolutely fabulous and more affordable than her other collections. And, Daily Candy has a deal- 25% off everything on her site. Just enter Enter code TRDC25 at checkout. WOWZA!

Oh, and while you are at it, oh Magical Shopping Fairy Godmother, I would also like these...
1. Griffin Elan Form Chilewich Case for iPhone 3GS - Gravel (here.)
2. Victoria Pumps in Blush: perfect for making my stubby legs look looooong. (here.)
3. Wicked Tickets (Geoff please?!!! wink...)
4. Incase 13" Hardshell Case for MacBook Pro (here.)
5. Faceted Mirror Side Table (here.)
6. All Seasons Shirtdress (here.)
7. Know Your Anemone Dress (here.)

Can't stop Sketching...
One of my blog-girl-crushes, Jessica of What I Wore introduced me to my next obsession. My Fashionary is my new favorite activity/relaxation tool. I forgot how much I love sketching-and this genius little tool has allowed me to combine my love of art with my love of fashion into one neat little portable notebook. I literally carry it everywhere now. It has a ton of reference material in the front as well: from online fashion resources to body measurements to standard
sizing guidelines. Check out some of Jessica's gorgeous sketches here, and you can see some of mine below. Get your own Fashionary here-its so much fun!

Hope you all are having a lovely day!

You are such a talent! I love the outfits you drew - can you draw outfits on short people, such as myself so i can see what stuff would look like on me??? Add a few pounds to your "model" as well - haha :(
