So… you had to know I was going to illustrate from J.Crew’s Fall 2013 show. (Sadly) a large portion of my paycheck goes right to the J.Crew bottom line. (You’re welcome, stockholders. Wait – I don’t think J.Crew is traded otherwise I would be all over that.)
J.Crew peeps are just doing everything right!! It’s so effortless and stylish. I love the bold colors, the awesome pattern mixing, and the great textures. Plus, all the accessories and soft goods are SPOT on!! The J.Crew girl is just so cool and chic; well… I just want to be her!
I know I need to be posting about my trip; Hong Kong is an awesome place. There’s gorgeous views and delicious food everywhere. I’ve been updating on Instagram and have some good ideas for some posts; so check back soon!
Hope you liked these fashion illustrations. (I’m messing around with new brushes and textures on Photoshop… you know – just having fun!)
Thanks for viewing! <3
I have a major crush on Kate Spade right now. (I’m obsessed with the accessories – bows, hearts, & more bows!) And, I can’t get enough of the Fall ’13 line. I love the retro vibe and the clean punchy graphics. Plus, they make for great fashion illustrations!
Freaking donut sweater!? What’s not to love?? Basically, I want all of it.
Stay tuned for more from New York Fashion Week. <3 Thanks for viewing!

V.Ng and I just came back from an amazing getaway in Charleston, SC. We went for my friend’s wedding which was more beautiful than the “Holy City” itself.
I knew from the home-spun invitations and the lakeside venue that this would be laid back. Most of the weddings V.Ng and I attend are nearly black tie so I had to search for a dress with a little southern charm.

Hello! I hope you safely survived the impact and aftermath of Sandy. My thoughts are with those who were hit hard. (I’m taking refuge at a good friend’s who luckily avoided power loss.)
Returning to our apartment and packing an overnight bag made it obvious that I have certain seasonal wardrobe staples. These are my top ten picks that I can’t live without.
flannel shirt Hollister (or $ urban outfitters and $$$ Shopbop), hooded puffer coat Burberry Brit (or $ Jessica Simpson and $$$ Bergdorf Goodman), white ribbed tank Abercrombie and Fitch (or $ alternative), grey heather leggings abercrombie (or $ the Outnet and $$$ Net-a-Porter), socks (or asos $$$ LN-CC), infinity scarf (or $ Modcloth and $$$ Guess), navy beanie Rugby by Ralph Lauren (or $ asos and $$$ Barney’s), white rain boots Marc by Marc Jacobs (or $ Amazon)
To all my NY/NJ viewers: I hope you stay safe and taking precautions during Sandy! Since everything from the MTA to the NYSE are closed, V.Ng and I are spending the day at home. We’re making the best of the “hurrication” with lots of Halloween candy and TV (while we still have power.)
I love hanging out in pj’s but I wanted to be productive and getting dressed helps a lot! Plus, I’m prepared in case we have to make quick getaway!
