I would also like to thank Jazzy E of Hivennn for the lovely cuff ring, which I won in her blog’s giveaway. It was the first time I’d ever won something from a blog contest so that was exciting. If you guys have yet to check out Hivennn, you should. Jazzy’s a very talented photographer and jewelry maker, who I illustrated in a watercolor portrait in January.
A blog I’ve been really enjoying lately is Pandora’s Box. When I first saw it, my jaw dropped because the publisher/model behind it, Sarah Whitney, looked like the doppelganger of one of my favorite actresses and fashion muses, Mia Kirshner. But despite the uncanny resemblance, this 22-year-old chick is no copycat. Sarah clearly has her own “SoCal” style, taking casual pieces like jeans shorts or loose fitting long sleeves tees and then infusing them with a rock girl vibe with accessories like wide-brimmed hats, jangly bracelets, and platform mary janes. Not to mention a perpetually smoky eye. Her tattoos add to the look as do the fact that everything she wears is affordable. In fact, she’s even been written up by Forever 21’s own blog for her style. If you haven’t been to her blog yet, you can check it out here.
