Tania's Outfit in Sketches



june 26

june 26

As I mentioned a couple weeks back, one of my new favorite blogs is My Closet in Sketches, where the exceptionally talented and intimidatingly-well-dressed Lauren sketches her outfits of the day. Then to my delight, Lauren wrote and asked if I'd like her to do a guest sketch of one of my outfits. Naturally I squealed aloud (embarrassing) and then sent her some pictures of a never-before-seen outfit from a few weekends back. Then she drew up this gorgeous sketch in which my legs look twice as long as they do in real life. Thank you so so much for taking the time to do the sketch, Lauren! You're one talented gal and I love the sketch.
P.S. I highly, highly recommend checking out Lauren's blog; it's different than a lot of other blogs out there and you just may get as addicted as I am.

Great outfit, as always, and I love the idea of the sketch. It reminds me of the fashion illustrations from the 60's mixed late 70's line art. Kinda etcha-sktehcy ;-)

I'm going to have to start following Lauren's blog.

Love the fab sketch and outfit! Have you seen Little Tin Soldier? She does the same thing, simple sketches and then outfit pics. I love the simplicity and adorableness of the drawings. Such a unique way to showcase OOTD looks. - Katy
