Every Friday I will be posting a big ol' drawing of Things I Like. It's my ode to the long lost similar post on Kate Spade's Behind the Curtain version. [sniff]. Love is a strong word...but I LIKE a lot of stuff!
Clockwise from the top left:
This AWESOME looking beer. Note I've left of the IPA. Pale I can do. Ale I can do. IPA I need to work on.
So I was at this paella party one night (long story) and this chick walks in wearing a snazzy strapless dress and platform glittery pumps. And she was awesome. Even after I found out she was a republican because...platform glitter pumps. It's proof that world peace can in fact be brought about by shoes. Also, Louboutins. *I can't fnd this version anymore . :(
Last Friday was Texas' birthday. Having been here 10 years now as a SoCal transplant, I've been informed that I am a bona fide Texan. This is especially the case here in Houston where half the population is a transplant. But in thinking about it, I'm pretty much a fine mix of both, as illustrated by this post.

My first year here one of my alma maters (USC) was crucified by UT. I wear this in defiance. At least our colors make sense :PPP ~ California
What other state has their own line of O.P.I nail polish?? Pictured here: ~Texas
Don't Mess with OPI
Guy Meets Galveston
Y'all Come Back Ya Hear
Bikini Bottoms. Only applicable in Austin and a shrinking number of spots in SoCal~Hybrid
Shiner Bock~ Totally Texas
I started wearing denim mini skirts here because...I can. I'm pretty sure it's still faux paus in L.A. ~Texas
Cowboy boots. Note the missing hat here. No one here wears cowboy hats. That's just something we tell people when we travel so they can laugh at us and then we can secretly laugh at them. ~Texas
I have yet to meet a Texas gal who doesn't have or once had a tattoo...secret or other wise. Superman is an inside joke...she knows who she is! ~Texas
So technically I guess I come out a bit more Texas than SoCal...and I'm totally okay with that!
Once upon a time I had a little blog called Drawn in Style. I did the same sort of drawing and stuff that you see here...then I quit. Fortunately I saved all my old drawings (how could I not?!). So you'll be seeing some of them here. Just ignore the Drawn in Style copyright...it's mine, trust me!
As you'll eventually come to realize, I love drawing shoes more than anything. And while I love drawing other people's handiwork, sometimes I like creating off the cuff. I don't necessarily want to make this a "shoe" blog so I've curtailed my love to just one day of the week. The basic idea is I take a photo that has somehow inspired me. Today's inspiration:
Basically I want to draw from my inspiration, without being too literal. Sometimes that works out better than others. But I still love my outcome for this week!
Basically red sequins with black seed beads in the center and brown stitching as the "vines." So what do you think??
