doodles

Lately, I have really been enjoying doodling little wants and likes in my sketchbook. It is filled with little outfits I put together based on some of my favorites on etsy. I can't go shopping all the time, so I figured I could scratch that shopping itch by drawing my dream little outfits. Drawing is so addictive to me, once I start, I can't stop and then Ben says, "Um... isn't there something else you should be doing rather than drawing up dream outfits?!" There is indeed more important things to be done, but a girl can spend a little time dreaming things together, can't she?!!

Just a little list of things I want for fall, but I guess winter too, since it is right around the corner. Though lately, I have been living in sweats and a cardigan.

I am by no means a fashion illustrator, but I just doodle things that fancy me.

outfit details: heart on my sleeve dress (can't find it in my faves, must have been deleted). tapestry purse from ms. tips. retro maryjane t-straps. sprinkles cupcake.

This is one of my favorite little getups...

So sad some of these things have already sold, but it is just as well, because it wasn't in my budget to buy them. I am sure they are going to a nice wonderful home where they will be loved! Also, I have pages full of drawings (little outfits for my girls too), so my wish list is too big and you may see more of my doodles round these parts. This is my way of scratching my shopping itch.

Have a good weekend and do tell me what is on your etsy favorites list...

  3. when i was young i always dream about clothing...to make the story short. i went to fashion h.s to fulfill my dream also went to college to study the whole fashion business...designing, creating...work for few years in the fashion district on how to learn the concept of designing to production. I don't dream as much anymore...maybe because I could afford it or maybe because I work in the fashion district for more than 10 years.

    I should go back to doodling...I do miss it though.

  12. I used to draw dream outfits for myself but I've got out of the habit these days, although I still do it for haircuts! You're so right, a girl can (and jolly well should!) spend a little time dreaming once in a while :)
