Weighty Ghost

Weighty Ghost- Wintersleep
The other night I met up with my lovely fashionable friend Brooke (of Center Sage) for some farewell wine. Putting together an outfit when your place is a disaster and you have no idea where most of your clothes are is...fun? Basically, I'd been wearing an oversized white tee and leggings all day but figured I should step it up a bit- so on came the sequinned dress! Nothing says "I swear I'm not a slob!" quite like
sequins.

On a side nore, Brooke entered Refinery 29 and Covergirl's Hunt for the Next Big Style Blogger and really, this girl should win... so head over and give her some love

So, a few weeks ago I had mentioned that I was working on a project and was hoping to show you guys a bit... so here we go! I debated posting this, as it's not at all fashion related, but in the end decided that it is a large part of who I am and this blog does seem to focus a lot on me (haha). 
Here's a page from the children's book I've been working on. It's about Mati, a Red Panda, who is looking for a friend! I had so much fun illustrating it- but had Brooke help out with the writing (the girl has mad skills! Plus, my over-usage of exclamation points and made up words didn't really cut it!

Your children's book is precious. You're the one with mad skills! I've been looking over your portfolio and all I can say is how much do you want for the dancer?

    Just discovered you through 'The Fashionist' and love your 'style transcends labels' approach. Your blog has an ethereal vibe that I find refreshing in a sea of consumer (and consumption)-driven fashion blogs

    Being a Haligonian (whose inlaws live in Winnipeg interestingly enough) I also love that you named today's entry after music from one of our local bands ;) Halifax is quite a stylish little city and I'm sure you would find some inspiration here should you ever have the opportunity to visit.

    Regards,

  11. Cute illustration! Children's books seem like so much fun... though I would have a hard time toning down my colourful language.
    And yes, nothing like sequins to say all is right with the world!!
