Facelift

As you might have noticed my banner has had a little face lift, and I'm finally happy with the layout of this blog. You might wonder who is behind the banner drawing, and in fact, there is a nice little story behind it.

About one month ago, I organized a birthday competition for my blog's first anniversary, giving away this amazing silver bracelet from Funky Marie Design's shop. The competition was won by a Brazilian reader of mine, a fashion design student called Nathália Nunes. As a thank you for winning the competition, she send me this cute color drawing that she had quickly drafted of me. I could see that she had real talent there, so we started exchanging emails and thoughts about fashion design, and she also let me see a glimpse of her past collection.

Thereby, I asked her to draw another picture of me (featuring one of my all time favorite outfits) to use on my blog's banner, and here we are. I'm really happy with it, thank you so much Nathália! As a result of our discussions, she has also started a blog called Out of the Blue that will feature fashion and her up and coming designs. I wish all the best for her and her career!

Anonymous: Thanks, me too!:)

May: Yeah, I agree. :) No one has ever drawn me like this, so it's interesting to see how others perceive me. Well, actually my boyfriend has drawn me as a anime character couple of times but that's it. :D
