Our new apartment in Paris!!! (plus info on my next illustration series)

Ok, so I promised everyone that I would post more pictures from my Paris trip. Here are some photos of our apartment in Paris. I feel like it is home already and I can't wait to move there in July! The apartment is still pretty bare but it's going to take some time...(and money!) to fill it up!
 


Next Illustration Series:

My next series is going to be lookbooks of my favorite bloggers out there. I'm going to be asking for high res images (300dpi) from some of the girls (or guys possibly?) out there. I'm also going to include in the illustration a short write up on how each blogger describes their personal style..

I was inspired by the "First Look" page in Elle magazine. I wanted to do something along these lines: Full figure with indications of what brand each article of clothing/accessories is.

I already have a few people in mind that I'm going to ask to be a part of this...but if you have any suggestions of who you think would be interesting to illustrate please let me know...even if it's you that wants to be a part of it!

Hi! Wow I can't believe you were just in Paris, and you are going to move there in the summer!!! How incredible! I was looking at your work from a few other blogs, and saw a link to your blog! I'm sure you have other girls who are super interesting to illustrate, but I would be incredibly honored if you drew my picture and included me in your series! I'd frame it and hang it up in my room and make it my profile picture on everything haha! and probably write about it on my blog endlessly!

I so wish I was you right now. I've never been to Paris and it's been a dream of mine to visit all the major fashion cities in the world, Paris being one of them. One day :)
For now, I will live my dream vicariously through your pictures!!
