BLUE is my Color

Hi Guys!  It’s been a little while…11 days to be exact.  Sorry for the absence; life has had me in its grip but I must say I’ve been enjoying the ride.  So, here’s a what’s been going on in my world type of post to be followed shortly by a fashion feature.

Peep my accessories for the day…and my makeup less mug!  I’ve been going sans war paint a lot more recently, except at work where I feel I owe it to my patrons to look alive.

photo (59)I’m steady rocking my L-O-V-E necklace but layered it with a shades of green statement necklace today.  The ring was a gift from my grandmother when I was a wee little elementary schooler.  My baseball bracelet is a rally bracelet for the Boys in Blue to pull out the win tonight and tie the NLCS up with the Cardinals.  And you can barely see them, but I’m wearing my Clemson Tiger paw earrings.  Beat BC!

Speaking of The Boys in Blue…Go Dodgers!!

Ain’t he?  Oh my….

Be back soon with some sartorial thoughts and visuals!  xoxo-Katie

 

Art Fart

I’m not a particularly “artistic” person in the traditional sense.  I can put paintbrush to canvas and manage to look like I’ve graduated elementary school.  I can even sketch a half way decent body form for fashion illustrations, but thus far that is about the extent of my traditionally artistic skills.  With that being said, I consider myself quite creative in a variety of ways and most importantly, I have an appreciation of all things beautiful!  Of course what qualifies as beautiful is up to the beholder and I do have a vaguely eclectic taste when it comes to art.  I fancy myself a bit of an amateur collector with no real education on the matter.  So far I’ve got some great thrift store finds and a couple of pieces that have been gifted.  But right now, I’m really crushing on Art Deco prints and galactic photos!!  Peep a few that are on the top of my wish list:

Trippy!  This is a costume sketch for a ballet…I think he’s supposed to be Vishnu, a Hindu God

Just to further validate my lust for the galactic shots…my most recent tattoo is of the Aquarius constellation.  I’m so fascinated by the night sky.

003Again…galaxy pants!

Can this be true?!  Unfathomably beautiful…

I’ve put a few memos out to loved ones about these illustrations and pictures, so maybe around Christmas time I’ll be sharing a photo of one of these little treasures hanging on my wall.

And last but not least a few shots from my life that I love…
