A big part of my quest to slow down is appreciating the beauty and creativity that lies beyond my pinterest boards and computer screen. I’ve been spending more time taking photos, reading books, and drinking cheap wine with my friends all in an effort to find new sources of inspiration. I graduated from an art school last May and got to know some incredibly talented creatives while I was there.
I took a textiles class with Shelby where we bonded over knitting scarves and our crazy professor. After that semester, I switched majors but Shelby stayed in fashion and honed her skills. If I’m ever lacking in inspiration I pull open her collections and die happily over the well-placed details in her beautifully constructed garments. I know we all have spring on our minds but Shelby just released the images for her F/W 2013 collection and I couldn’t resist sharing.
That gold skirt? I’m 100% sure I need it in my life. You can check out the rest of the collection on her website and if you’re lucky enough to be in Chicago you might get to see these beauties up close and personal. Which is your favorite!?
