illustrated favorites: mid-summer

favescanedfinal2

Illustrated favorites take awhile to complete, but they always turn out so cute. This is about the limit of my drawing skills, in case you wondered.

You may recognize that floral dress from yesterday's The Moral Wardrobe post. It, along with a matching set I'm waiting to receive from The Floral Prince, are my two statement items for the season. I've been getting a lot of use out of my Leah Goren tote and various casual shoes that are suitable for work. I'm also anxiously awaiting new glasses from BonLook (they're not particularly ethical, but their production chain is roughly equivalent to Warby Parker).

Remember how I used to draw my monthly favorites? I ran out of drawing paper and didn't bother to buy another pad, so I temporarily removed this feature. But polyvore is also a great medium for product lists and its styleboards are shoppable, which makes life easier for me by ensuring proper credit is given to the companies and retailers that sell listed products.

It's been quite hot in Charlottesville, but last night's rain brought cooler temperatures, which means I can wear the cute varsity cardigan my friend gave me earlier this week! Other recent favorites include Mel by Melissa jelly sandals, a domestically produced eye ring, an upcycled vintage dress by ASOS, Leah Goren's Girls tote (I bought one with slight imperfections for half price!), and pretty purple eyeshadow from Clinique.

designer: leah goren

I know Leah Goren is old news in the blogging world; her cat dress was a favorite among fashion bloggers a couple years ago and her collaboration with Anthropologie made her designs even more accessible. We also share a first name, so I feel an affinity with her; Leahs need to stick together.

Though she's been selling her original prints on etsy for years, it seems she's just recently opened up a Society 6 shop, which makes it easy to put her ethereal and cheeky watercolors on your walls, your couch, your phone. And since Society 6 produces a good deal of its products in the USA and allows the artist to set her profit margins, it's a pretty ethical way to shop.

Did you jump on the cat dress bandwagon a few years ago? The Anthro dress is still on ebay for ridiculous sums of money, so I guess people are still a bit obsessed.
