A better day, plus some more paintings!

The last month or so has been pretty rough, needless to say. I resigned from my brief job at a boutique in Uptown Park Houston, and had been pretty down on myself for being unable to really find anything else. Being an artist, of course I want to have a job utilizing my skill! But I'm fine with whatever I can get at this point. Luckily, I had an interview with Torrid at the Houston Galleria, and I'm hopeful that I might be brought on as a sales associate for one of my favorite plus-size stores. 

Not only that, but I've been getting back into painting on a regular basis as well. Forgive the photos below, the camera on my phone isn't the greatest.

The first is a brightly colored printed dress that I drew up. I was getting a bit tired of seeing black and white and frumpy shapes while shopping at Dillard's one day, and decided to create something to cheer me up. I love the line drawing, feel free to save it and color it yourself if you like!

I'm loving the pantone spring colors for this season, and I must say, Strawberry Ice is probably the color I want to wear the most! Hi-lo's are probably getting overused by now, but I couldn't help drawing another one here. 

This was a painting I did today, straight from the Torrid line-up to celebrate my interview today! It's a gold foil printed dress with an asymmetrical hem. You can find it on clearance here, on their website!

It was a really great day today, and I even managed to get some Outfit of the Day pictures of what I was wearing to my interview! Check it out!

I'm also happy to say that I'm an official member of the Houston Fashion Bloggers! I'm hopeful for the future, and what it holds for me... For once, things are starting to finally look up again!



  1. I am a sucker for houndstooth. You look beautiful and that dress is such a nice shape. :)
