Open to Requests

You may have wondered why I haven't been posting like I used to. Besides the fact that I've been very busy lately, I just haven't been feeling inspired photography-wise. As you may know, I take all of my own photos that I use here as backgrounds, but what you may not know is that most of the pictures I use are months or years old. I've been dying to go on a photography excursion, hoping to find some interesting architecture or intense texture, and my friend Joey at Redo My Shoe will hopefully be accompanying me on one such adventure soon, though our hectic schedules haven't let us do so yet.

With this being said, I am now open to using your photos as backgrounds for Paint-by-Fashion. Any photos used will be credited and can be linked to your blog or website, as requested. Leave your info in a comment, and I will be sure to do you justice.

Do you have any work that you want to see Painted?

Balenciaga S/S 2012



Due to a recent- and very tragic- mishap with my computer, combined with a lack of funds to get it fixed, posting will be sparse, if not completely paused for the time being. Although I am working on getting this issue resolved, I am currently working harder on finding a public-use computer with Microsoft Paint. Til then, you may enjoy the non-Painted collections on Style.com and send some recommendations my way.


Miu Miu Resort 2012

Today's paint is dedicated to Claire Montgomery, my gorgeous sister, my light and love. She is 22 today, and though I can't be with her on her birthday I am sending all my love her way. Happy Birthday Claire!


Fall Couture!

Couture is here!

Since I started this blog I've been awaiting the new couture collections. My favorite thing about couture is the strong character that the clothes present. Basically what I do in this blog is put the character in her setting, whether it be literal or not, and couture gives me the chance to play around with the entire story I'm creating.

This season the Jean Paul Gaultier collection presented me with the same problem that the Lanvin resort collection did: the impossibility to choose my favorites. The end result being the entire 60-piece collection is saved on my computer.

Now, which are YOUR favorites?
