As you’ve probably noticed, I’ve been on a major fashion blogger kick lately. I’ve been reading a lot more fashion blogs since starting my own last summer and have really been inspired by the effort that goes into some of the better ones, even when the bloggers aren’t making a dime for their photo shoots.
This is actually my second illustration of Kerry from Yours Truly blog. She’s a textile designer for a living but also puts together the cutest vintage outfits and always makes them look fancy yet wearable. This is a talent I admire because, let’s face it, real vintage from the 50s and 60s can be hard to wear without appearing costumey, or worse, frumpy church lady. The trick is, I think, a) buying clothes that actually fit properly or being willing to invest in the necessary alterations, b) taking some artistic license and not worrying so much how things are supposed to look for that era and c) taking the time to do the makeup and hair to go with that net veil hat or mod-girl shift dress. Time consuming? Definitely, but so worth it. (Of course I would say that since my biggest fashion muse ever is Dita Von Teese.)
You are an posh artist! Love it!! I agree on the tweaking vintage concept to give it a more modern twist.

wow.. i wish i had the talent you have! thanks for the comment, i just love it! adorable blog too!
I know how you feel. I've had my blog for a year and recently decided to start it up again. I feel like most of them more successful ones have those nice 1000 cameras, with perfect lighting and who ever takes their photos happen to be great at photography not to mention their designer shoes and bags. I certainly don't have a willing person who can follow me around with a nikon slr
Lovely blog, ~
