The Sketchbook Project is coming to Toronto this weekend. Don’t miss it!
Every once in a while, I’ll get a gem in my inbox that I need to blog about. Do I love Jonathan Adler? YES! Do I love stationery? YES! YES! I am also happy that this led to the discovery of Paperless Post. Genius!
It was really hard for me to choose favourites among the 50 designs. I’m in love with all of the bold colours and quirky illustrations which is typical of anything Jonathan Adler. The collection launched on June 4th. So… what are you waiting for?! Send me a card! ;)
Hiiiii! Did a super quick sketch of Michelle Harper from the CFDA fashion awards. I don’t think you could ever miss seeing Michelle. She stands out and makes a statement at every event she attends. She is wearing a vintage Yves Saint Laurent skirt and she put a bird on it! Ha! Love it!
I feel out of practice, which is never a good thing, so I’m gonna try to make more of an effort to draw and post more frequently. Okay? OK!

I know, I know… we’re just starting to get some warm temps in Toronto, however, looking at this collection makes me long for Fall. I attended a preview of Rudsak‘s Fall 2013 line called Stardust, a nod to the 70′s. There were hints of disco glam yet the pieces still maintained their modern edge. So much effort goes into the construction and detailing in all of their pieces; you can change the style of the coats with an additional zip or turn of the collar and most hoods and fur trim are detachable.
Rudsak is known for their leather jackets and bags but I think what surprised me most is their clothing line. Kudos to designer Evik Asatoorian. I wanted to take everything home with me! The collection will be available in stores this July/August so we don’t have to wait too long, thank goodness.
I watched this today about the making of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games logo. So much thoughtfulness and meaning and intelligence. It’s beautiful.
This year’s theme for the Met Gala was PUNK: Chaos to Couture and I don’t think anyone did it better than Linda Fargo. I mean, the hair alone did it for me. While most people donned their designer gowns and looked beautiful, a select few took the theme seriously and I applaud them for it.
