A few months ago I got a message from my friend asking about collaborating with his shop, Tom’s Accessories. Since then I’ve worn several pieces and perused the site too many times. It’s about time I organized my thoughts (with a new fashion illustration, of course.)
Cindy Bracelet & Hazel Stud Earrings Tom’s Accessories
If you regularly check Sketchbook Closet (I hope you do!) you probably notice that I’m not the biggest accessory aficionado. Putting together a good outfit is hard work for me — throwing jewelry into the mix is just daunting. (As I mentioned on a previous post) that’s why I was so excited to work with Tom’s.
Today’s Illustration: $$ Anthropologie Corduroy Halter Dress, $$ Steve Madden Suede Chunky Heels (or $ Nine West and $$ Ann Taylor), J.Crew dream cardigan (or $ Target and $$ J.Crew), Zara gold accent coat (or $$ here and $$$$ MyWardrobe), studded cross body bag (or $ DSW and $$ asos), $$$ be mine heart studs (or $ Kate Spade), W.Village street vendor stamped initial necklace (or $$ Max & Chloe)
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.
