Live Drawing At Vera Bradley

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure to illustrate live at one of the many stores that Vera Bradley has. The store where I illustrated is located in Orlando, FL. inside one of the most popular malls; The Florida Mall. I had the pleasure to attend one of the events they had at another location, and I learned so much about the brand. Before the event I visited the store and Jacquelyn the store manager shared with me so much information and facts about the company.

Many fellow bloggers, friends and family members came to visit me. I’m not gonna lie but I was little nervous. As soon as I sketched my first model, I was able to relax a little and get ready for a fun day.

The awesome team from the store created this cute set up for customers, and included the giveaway, products and some snacks.

This was the giveaway! An adventure key necklace, fine point pen set and a sticky note set.

This was such a fun event. Thank you to this team of ladies who prepared the event, and were my models as well, I had a blast drawing people live, sharing about the brand and making new friends. Thank you also to Vera Bradley for giving me the opportunity and I can’t wait to be part of another great event.

Fall Blazers

Hello Friends!

It feels good to be back. I have been trying to get back into the groove of things but unfortunately there was a hurricane a week ago. IRMA hit pretty hard and left the state of FL with some damage and powerless. I didn’t have power for a week, so the struggle was real but I am here sharing with you guys a new post all about my latest fall blazers.

If you were able to attend NYFW or catch the shows live, there were tons of blazers on the runway, as well as the street style looks from people that attended the shows. Even though I couldn’t attend due to the hurricane, I watched most of the shows and kept up with looks from many people that I admire in the industry.

I grew up watching my mom get ready and wear tons of stylish pieces. This plaid jacket that I am wearing is hers from the 90’s. It’s wool, with a medium lapel. and gold buttons.  It’s perfect for fall and winter season, and you can style it with anything. I wore a pair of skinny jeans under, a black top and adidas originals slip on sneakers.

The 2nd jacket I am showcasing is this vintage, light wool, bright pink 80’s blazer. I found it at a dance event that I attended for $5.00. I love the color, love how it’s light weight and wearable.

I wore the same base pieces from the previous images, added a pin that my mother gave me and sand suede mules to bring the outfit together. So there it is…. some of my essential blazers for this season. Don’t feel pressured to get one, I’m sure you have one in your closet and you can style it in many ways. If you don’t have one, trust me a lot of stores have some great ones and I have included links where you can purchase them on the items. I hope you guys found this  post helpful, continue to have a great week and rock your own style.
