During my time off from blogging I kept on top of my style game by doing little fashion drawings, coming up with outfits for my friends and then illustrating them. It’s fun because coming up with looks for other people challenges me to think outside the box of my own aesthetic, plus drawing the outfits helps to better envision what they would actually look like in the real world. Here are a couple of looks I illustrated for friends recently…
Sara is a French-Canadian megababe who never wears heels and sometimes gets her nipples out like it ain’t no big deal (pro tip: it ain’t no big deal and everyone should take a cue from this broad). Plus she has, like, the coolest name ever.
RAEN sunglasses from Urban Outfitters, Blood Is The New Black t-shirt, skinny suspenders from Amazon, YSL lipstick, Melie Bianco crossbody bag, Forever 21 skirt, Antiquated Crow flask from Etsy, three-stone cuff from Nasty Gal, Kingdog “Castrating Bitch” ’70s reproduction feminist badge from Etsy, Zoya matte nail polish in Dovina, American Apparel pointelle ankle socks, Pointer oxfords from Need Supply Co.
Gabi is a fatshion icon, MTV TJ, and one of my favorite people in the entire world (and here’s a photo to prove it). She runs GABIFRESH.com (formerly plus-size fashion mecca Young, Fat, & Fabulous), and I tried to come up with a look that reflects her edgy city style and her love for purple platforms.
Missphit wrap top, The Row sunglasses from 80’s Purple, Bare Escentuals Pretty Amazing Lipcolor in Strength, Marc by Marc Jacobs post earrings, Luv AJ chain connector bracelet from La Dama, Patricia Field skull knuckle clutch, Torrid skirt, Essie nail polish in Silken Cord, Senso Diffusion platforms from Modcloth.
You can check out my older illustrations at yournewoutfit.tumblr.com. I’ll probably keep posting my fashion drawings here periodically, and if you like them, stay tuned, because I plan to launch a service-based site in the next couple of months where you too can be graphically styled by yours truly!
