This beauty was a commission done for a chic customer in Washington, DC. Coincidentally, I am babysitting a Maltese for two weeks, starting yesterday. She seems to want to sit at my drawing desk in my chair at all times. Maybe she is secretly a little artist?

I have never been one to post daily outfit posts, but the other day I was chatting with my lovely blog-savvy cousin-in-law and she suggested I start recording even one or two per week. I suppose today being one of  the first good weather days all year, it was time to start.

In this outfit (wore it to church this morning) I am wearing a classic black circle skirt (French Connection) which I found at a thrift shop for a whopping $7.99. I do love when I accidentally stumble upon a deal! I was going to purchase one just like it from Etsy, but all along my local second hand store had just the thing. I do have a confession to make, I took a little bit of an afternoon nap in this classic outfit before shooting, but I quite like the (slightly) rumpled look.

My purse is a classic Hamilton, from Michael Kors in the luggage color. I tend to wear it a lot as it seems to go with everything and it just gets better with age. I generally love when things look worn as opposed to brand spanking new.

My flats are nude/blush colored t-straps, ordered online from Beyond the Rack. I paired it all with a massive (messy) sock bun and a tucked in button-up shirt.

There you have it. I now need to pay my photographer (husband) with hamburgers, so this will be short and sweet.

Here are a couple of recent sketches that I have completed. The first was just for fun, I sketched a model I saw on the runway and added my own flair to the dress.

The second sketch is one I completed a couple of days ago for a customer who designs jewelry. It was a commission for me to draw a fashion illustration of her wearing some of her pieces. She will be putting it on her business cards which is a simply brilliant idea!
