I have been trying to keep up a sketchbook/journaling practice lately. I have been a daily journaler for years now, but since I have been doing so much artwork I wanted to do a more visual diary. I have also been trying to buy less, and spend more time appreciating what I already have. I am not immune to the draw of beautiful new clothes and shoes (as this diary shows!). But I do consider this journal a little thank-you note to all of the clothes I wear on my back (and the shoes my feet) and the ways they serve me in my life. This fashion sketchbook practice was a nice way to slow down and be appreciative of the present, through the good times (going to the museum, eating so much delicious ramen and watching wonderful movies) and bad (passing out on Saturday, sick day Tuesday…damned chronic illnesses). Maybe I should keep this up!
These are so so beautiful and expressive! I love seeing the new directions you’re going.
I appreciate it and look forward to continuing the process. Thank you for reading!! xo
These designs are so beautiful. I really appreciate your idea and your journal is so inspiring. Loved it.

this is perfect and inspiring. i hope you continue to share your week with us in this way. i hope you are feeling better soon, i’m sorry you have to deal with the health issues!
Thank you so much! It’s been a true joy combining my posts with the rewarding practice of sketching and keeping a journal.
I can easily imagine your journal entries as a hardcover art book. Would be a beautiful read!
What is the model of the Onitsuka Tiger sneakers?! They look perf!
This is such a neat idea and so beautifully done. Especially the blue dress. That must have taken ages.
I especially like the idea as a way to value what you already own. I’ve been trying to buy less and wear my closet more too and it’s been quite rewarding
Oh my gosh, I’m so floored by this post! You are so talented and did such a good job illustrating the pieces. I really love the idea of doing more tactile art – and the combo of art, journaling, and collaging you did here is so inspiring <3

so inspiring to do too. I am good I sketching but never though on doing it. I have lots of holidays planned in the next 8 months (Norway, Sweden, France etc) so I might start doing this. Thanks for inspiring me. You are very talented.

This is one of my favourite posts ever (and I’ve been following your blog for over a decade). I feel like these sketches & collages allow me to see style through your eyes.
I’ve tempted to paint a jacket because yours is so gorgeous.
I hope to see more of your art soon!✨

I love this! I’m an avid journal keeper too. Such a fun way to change it up.

This is amazing. Love it!
This is very inspiring. I’ll think about doing this too, after all 5min drawing every 2 days might be a good thing to get back at drawing :).
Hope to see more of it !
this post is truly giving me LIFE during quarantine.
