Animal Motif Sweater

Animal Motiff_1 Animal Motiff_2 Animal Motiff_3 Animal Motiff_4

Wearing:

Topshop Doberman motif sweater
Burberry shorts
Thick tights that don't have a label lol
BCBG sude and leather pumps
Burberry watch
H&M headband
Vintage purse
Mac "Fresh Moroccan" lipstick

I have some major explaining to do.  First of all, this look is a repeat from 2 years ago.  If you followed my last blog (which is now long gone...thanks Google!), you may remember this look.  I repeat my outfits more frequently than you may think.  I just don't always have time to take a picture of every one of my outfits.

Secondly...it dawned on me the other day that I never fully introduced myself.  Like, you guys probably don't know much about me other than "I'm an illustrator from Northern California.  This is my personal style blog."  LOL!  Let me elaborate on that a little.  Here are some fun facts about me that you should know about:

-I'm from a very small, gossipy town in Sonoma County.  It's a pretty place, known mostly for its vineyards and wines. They call it Wine Country.

-I've been drawing since I can remember.  I've shown my work at art shows since I was in High School.    I've painted murals and produced commissioned work for years.  Right now I'm finishing my BFA in Illustration.  This would explain why sometimes I don't have time to post much (sorry about that).

-My boyfriend Jaime, who takes all my pictures, is also an artist.  He's far more talented than I :)

-I love birds.  I currently own a 13 year old Lutino cockatiel named Peaches.  She's the sweetest thing.  I also own a few rare breeds of chickens :)

-I love muscle cars, specifically the Ford Mustang.  I know more about classic Mustangs than most guys my age.  True story.

I'm not sure what else to add. I'm not very good at writing about myself.  I also don't like sharing so many personal things about myself as I like to keep things private here on the web.  I've had far too many bad experiences on social networks.  But at the same time I feel that it's important to have a voice for my blog.  I think it's helpful for you guys to get to know me a little better.  So from time to time, I'll share a snippet of my life.  And today, you get little random facts about me.

Thanks for reading!

  30. I knew most of those facts so I feel special and I recognize that sweater. It's me, out from under my rock. You don't even know what's been going on in my neck of the woods lately. Deadly bus crashes, cop killers on the loose, police pointing rifles in my car on the way to work. Oh, it's been fun. I live off a major highway. I want to share my stories but Im scared too. Too many exes, uh I mean freaks out there that might be googling me. I hope you are well my raven haired friend. I'll keep an eye out for bird stuff for you, I just sold a cute pair of vintage bird earrings, I should have sent you them. Are you ever going to show your art on here?
