Hey Friends!

I’ve just opened my ZAZZLE store in association with ArtProjekt, founded by artist Andy Howell!  ARTSPROJEKT is a curated platform that empowers emerging and established artists and brands to connect, collaborate, and showcase original art, designs and ideas with fans and consumers.  This store has allowed me to make my art available in other product categories such as iPhone and iPad cases, mouse pads, buttons and more.  I just updated 6 new MOUSE PADS to my ZAZZLE store!! Hope you like them….and thanks for all the support!  You guys are the BEST!

ASOS is quickly becoming my favorite place to shop.  They are always coming out with new amazing product and my wishlist keeps getting longer!!  Especially with their great maternity options!  This flowy swallow printed blouse is from there.  It’s the perfect maternity top…with plenty of room for my baby bump to grow!  It is still available in a RUST color on the site.

And this cute white faux leather jacket was sent to me by Collection B.  If I didn’t know better, I would think it was real leather! It’s super soft and comfy.  Check out more of their leather goodness in their S/S 2011 Lookbook….featuring some of my favorite fellow LOOKBOOKERS!


Chin up, chin up / Everybody loves a happy face / Wear it, share it / It’ll brighten up the darkest place / Twinkle, sparkle / Let a little sunshine in / You’ll be on the right side, looking at the bright side / Up with your chinny-chin-chin.

– Charlotte’s Web circa 1973

My sister and I were watching the original Charlotte’s Web the other day with her little babes.  Bruce – 2 and Copper – 5 months.  Bruce said “Hey “elli”, let’s watch “ilber”.  I couldn’t resist.  I forgot what an awesome movie it is.  But maybe I love it so much because it brings back the child in me.  It makes me think back to when me and my sisters were little and we would all huddle around the tv and watch it together and sing along. I still know almost every word to “Chin Up” ! haha.  Ohhh to be 2 again!   Anyway, Charlotte’s Web really has nothing to do with this post other than titling it “The Bright Side” from the  Chin Up song.  I’ve always been into pairing pretty things with rougher/tougher things when it comes to fashion.  Here, I paired my skinny military cargo’s with a more delicate chiffon blouse and flower crown.  Shoes are old Steve Madden, borrowed from my sis.  And my hair is freshly whitened….by none other than….my sis! She’s the only one who get’s that I want it as close to white as possible…almost grey even. I know, it’s weird.  But I just can’t rock that yellow tone.

My headband, is surprisingly hand made by my mom.  (I say surprisingly because she would be the first to tell you she’s not much of the “creative” type) I was very proud of her…and I love it!  I wear it as a necklace, a crown/headband like in these photes, and even as a belt shown HERE.
