GOOD/Cole Haan Illustration Submission

I found this great contest through GOOD called Project Doodle: Something Good in the World. The challenge is to do a drawing based on someone or something putting good into the world. I am a sucker for a competition - and it helps that it is being supported by Cole Haan. I immediately thought of a national but locally started non-profit called Growing Power. Their vision is to inspire communities to build sustainable food systems that are equitable and ecologically sound, creating a just world, one food-secure community at a time. They were the PERFECT subject for my illustration.

Here it is - I’m pretty happy with it. Remember people: take care of yourself, your community and your planet.

Shoe Love with Chelsea Crew

I picked up the most comfortable, amazing pair of low-wedge, Chelsea Crew oxfords on Bedford Street on a hot Brooklyn day last summer. I have been in love with Chelsea Crew shoes since. These are my latest loves.

Neusteters Dress from NodtoModvintage

The other night, I stumbled across this amazing 1950s Neusteters dress in NodtoModvintage’s Etsy shop. I hemmed and hawed, but ultimately - I could not bear the thought of someone else snatching this dress up! It now belongs to me and it is as fabulous in person as it is in pictures. I can’t wait to wear it to a summer wedding.
