Penned Out

You can imagine how I beamed when I opened up my inbox to discover this illustration by Aura Lyndon at Auracouture. Its such a high form of flattery to have someone of talent illustrate you - this is the third time since I began blogging that I've been lucky enough to be portrayed in this way.
Check out Aura's blog, she's also featured a great illustration of Gala.

This slubby jumper is the only thing I purchased from the Fashion Weekend. There's so much to find at these kind of events but you really have to wade through the dregs to find it. I found some delicious candles (you can never have too many candles!) and this super comfy oversized number which I picked up at the Tristan Blair stand where I proceeded to swoon for about 20 minutes before I collected my resolve and reminded myself of a pending overseas trip which, being in Australia, is going to cost me an arm and a leg. The epic shoes will come my way eventually... I love you Tristan Blair.

So my outfit, definitely roughing it. So cosy I can't help but smile.

Very nice artwork. Pen-n-ink with marker is such a fun combination. Congrats on being illustrated again!

That outfit looks wonderfully comfy. I wouldn't mind getting one of my own and snuggling up in it. Tennessee has turned to some downright infernal cold weather!
