Good Evening My Loves,
I feel absolutely terrible having been away from my blog and blogger friends for almost a week now. My title is entirely indicative of how the last 10 days of my life have been. I've missed my internet family and our great exchanges. Hopefully once NYFW passes I will be back on schedule. As I was saying, 'Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger' is not just a favored Daft Punk song but the complete momentum of my life right now. I'm so thrilled to have some downtime in order to update you all on the exciting ventures that have and are about to take place.
This past weekend I had the great fortune of meeting the gorgeous and endearing blogger Ania . B!! When I found out she would be in town for a fashion blogger's conference I was ecstatic over the opportunity of seeing her. You can check out a photo of our Marc by Marc Jacobs shopping extravaganza on her blog here. One of the sweetest individuals ever, I'm so fortunate to have met her. Furthermore, my class has been preparing to illustrate at the Oscar De La Renta show tomorrow. We practiced by illustrating the make-up room backstage at an FIT fashion show.
I've been really trying to push myself and challenge my comfort zone when it comes to my illustrations this week. It feels like all the instructions I've collected over 4 semesters is finally falling into place. I love going faster, letting go of my fears of perfection, seeing what comes out when I let myself go. I feel myself improving in my ability to think about what requires definition and what can be left to draw itself. I guess in a way it's all a reflection of me growing into myself, embracing all the mistakes along the way. Feels like Valentine's Day really worked this year :)
