Adventures with the Bee

Here is today's ensemble (which I really like). There was a board meeting today at the museum, and it was the first one I had been to since I had le I wanted to make sure I looked well put together. The majority of the ensemble is from Ann Taylor Loft, who's Spring Collection I am diggin'. There were a few other pieces of theirs I would like to add to my repertoire.

Anyhow-- I also kept working on the color sketches for the book I am working on right now. Here is a glimpse at one of the pages.
I hope you're having a great week!

Miami Circle Ensemble

As you know my day job is that of VP of Education and Visitor Services at HistoryMiami (formerly the Historical Museum of Southern Florida). Today was a big day at work, after 12 years of working on this project and about 1.5 years of construction---The Miami Circle (managed by HistoryMiami) opened to the public today.

I knew there'd be plenty of press (I did end up on the news on a few channels) I wanted to raise the bar 500% from yesterday's ensemble...(what do you think?) All in black and decked out in Kristin Pearce jewels, I think my mission was accomplished. Plus there were a good number of dignitaries and museum several reasons to look cute.

Above is a picture of me with my dear friend from work, la Doctora...and below pictures of the circle and the phase 1 masterplan drawing.

The Miami Circle is an ancient Tequesta Indian site and today it is part of a passive park on the mouth of the Miami River and is now officially open to the public to enjoy.

Not My Favorite

Not really digging my look I thought I would capture it so that I could remember that. I wish I had a different shirt on under the cardigan so I could wear it open---I wish I had belted it...
Mind you the purples and greens in the scarf are actually really pastels, not is the pink I'm wearing...they are more blush pinks.

Still...not a fan.

Target to the Rescue Again! (Fashion)

So, why pay $178 for the dress on the top (Ann Taylor) when you can pay $20 for the one on the bottom?!
Personally I went with option B...and being that they are $20 on sale right now, I also got it in olive, black and this great dark teal.

Another Spring Fashion

So Oprah told me that wearing nude color heels will make me look slimmer...maybe it was Nate Berkus...point is...after searching and finding the perfect pair...I found an inexpensive perfect pair!
Since I am NOT a heel wearing girl, finding a nice comfortable pair is important. My favorites are Cole Haan's Nike Air heels...but these are not the $250 CH's... these are the $30 Target edition!
So ladies, if you are looking for a nude heel and don't want to invest too much...presto!

Orange & Blue

Last week I saw I am Love starring Tilda Swinton. This Italian film was not at all what I expected...great character development and tragic in the end- naturally. Anyhow, the bright smiley part of the film was Tilda Swinton's wardrobe and collection of Hermes handbags.

This ensemble has to be my favorite. I love the bright orange pants with the pale blue shirt and long strand of black pearls. Classic.

In the fall of 2008, J.Crew came out with some bright orange pants (more traffic cone, less tangerine)...they were lovely. This morning I sported them with a chambray shirt and brown belt. I'm not as svelte as Tilda, but I think I am pulling off the look well.

I'm really excited that fun color pairings are coming in full force this spring.

Hair Unveil

TADA! Here is my hair...freshly cut last night. 8" donated... bangs cut... I'm thinking the bangs will grow but I may keep the hair shorter for a while.

What do you think?

Hair Donation Day

Take one LONG last look friends...its coming off this afternoon. I have not decided if I am going with Pantene (8") or Locks of Love (9")... what do you think?
I also don't know if I'll do a bang or not...I'm leaning towards NO...

Would love your opinions... xoxo

Back to the Drawing Board...Literally

Last night I finished up the second round of drawings for the book I am illustrating. The book is about a bee and its relationship with his friend a cat. It's a very cute story and as soon as the author and "producers" are happy with this set of drawings I will begin the color drawings.
This is the opening scene, the cat is at home in the kitchen while its human family is working on breakfast.

Inspired by Pucci Some More

In the book Iggy Peck Architect Iggy's mom wears a beautiful Pucci inspired dress... I too love Emilio. Here I am in a dress I designed and had made in a Pucci inspired print.
This was taken at my 11x3 birthday cocktails last week.

Iggy Peck Architect

I am in love with this book! Iggy Peck Architect (Beaty, Roberts) is a fun read for parents and children. I have to say I am enamored by Iggy's mom's ensembles in the book.
My dear friend Chris who lives in NYC with 2 boys sent it to Baby C for her birth. His eldest is currently a big fan of Iggy's if you have a Lego lover in your life, or are a fan of beautifully illustrated quirky stories, I highly recommend this book.
