No offense to anyone ~ honestly okay... but I seriously cannot fathom spending money on a matching purse, jacket and shoes! I can't do it! I am a simpleton and I am just fine with being a simpleton. I have a few black pairs of shoes, one black purse and a few necessary jackets each relating to the season at hand. I would much rather save my money up for a vacation than pour it into my wardrobe! That being said however, I absolutely LOVE the look of it!

I cannot wear high heels anymore but I gotta tell you, when I walk past a shoe store and see a deliciously colored pair of high heel shoes my mouth waters (actually my mouth is watering just thinking about it!) I think I can totally understand why some women will spend their entire paycheck on their fashion! Maybe if I had money I would be one of them?... hmmmm... I don't know. I think I will always love fashion from a far and appreciate the designs, textures and gorgeous colors that come out every season... oops drooling again:) Maybe I am a closet fashionista ~ one who observes fashion, loves fashion, but will never wear the current fashions that cost an arm and a leg!

Besides... my boys have braces (which is like a car payment), they are both getting their learners licence for driving (which may one day be another car payment) and then in just a few short years (4 at the most) they will be in College/University which is like another house payment! Yep, so I guess you could say I won't be a fashionista anytime soon:) I am okay with that though. God has blessed me with so much I would never trade it all in for a pair of shoes, gorgeous as they may be...

This is a work in progress drawing... it needs more, and I don't like the way the hair turned out. Do you think I should doodle in the background? I'm thinking I might journal the background(?) I would love any suggestions.

Hugs and many blessings to you, I pray you have a wonderful weekend. For us here in Calgary it is Thankgsgiving on Monday and bonus it is also my Anniversary with my wonderful amazing hubbub of 18 years! Happy Thanksgiving to all you Canadians out there, and Happy Weekend to everyone else.

Hi Kelly!
You could always journal in her hair since you don't like how her hair turned out :)
Happy anniversary! That's wonderful. and Happy Thanksgiving too :)

I am the same about fashion. I like looking at all of it but I'm a very simple person.

Both drawings are really good. I like that you do lots of different poses.

Ha! Love your fashionista! I've got to tell you, I'm even more of a simpleton than you are. Dressing up to me is brushing my teeth and putting on a fab pair of earrings! LOL Your posts always make me smile, Kelly! Blessings and hugs to you.

Matching bags and shoes is out-dated anyway :-) .. but I admit to having turquoise, red and even pink shoes! I figure I have to buy shoes, why buy black? My latest thing seems to be the reverse of the usual: neutral colours for the clothes and flamboyant colours for shoes and bags.

I like her hair- and she looks so thoughtful and nice.

I am the same way. It just seems a waste of money to me. :) But your ladies sure look fine. :)

Hi Kelly, I sway from loving dressing up to the nines to relaxing around the house in trackies. I do love looking at all the fashion in the shops and in the magazines, and sometimes spend a bit more if I see something I have to have.I have never been a big shoe fashionista but gee there are some nice ones out at the moment so I think I will be tempted to splurge a bit this summer.
I do like all the ways you draw your girls, so many different expressions and gestures and positions. I like the idea of journaling in the hair.

Hi Kelly, this post is so amusing! At least we can draw what we like!!! I too don't spend much money on fashion. I scour vintage shops for clothes and I come up with winners! Your shoes and bag doodles are great! Never done anything like that before! Patsy from
