Cowls for the Cold

Cowl necks used to mean either a hickey cover-up or the stretched out neck on your mom’s turtleneck sweater. But not anymore. I’m kind of obsessed with these cowl neck scarves, cowls, neck warmers, whatever you want to call them. Practical: they will never fall off when you are strapped down with five bags. Plus, they are truly, unbelievably warm. I found my Michael Kors burnt orange cowl at a Michaels outlet for $13. But here are some homemade numbers from Ozetta on Etsy.

Here’s a big cuddly version from Ozetta

And a smaller one from Ozetta too, the crochet master who learned from her grandmother. Nothing but jealousy over here. It seems like any knitting attempts on my part end up in cramped fingers and a never-ending sea of knots.

The Model Artist

Models, fashion, and art? How could I NOT be fascinated by artist Danny Roberts?

Roberts’ creations are whimsical, yet beautifully mysterious all at once. His Etsy shop, Igor + Andre, is definitely one of my new favorites. His inspiration comes from fashion such as current models (Gemma Ward and Lily Donaldson are a couple of his favorite muses) and also pop culture. Check out “The Girls in Glasses” below:

The Girls in Glasses

The fashion designer/artist/entrepreneur studied photography at Cal Poly SOL and fashion design at the Academy of Art in San Francisco, so he definitely has the credentials to be fashion’s next greatest illustrator. Good Luck Danny!

Check out Danny’s blog at igorandandre.blogspot.com

You can purchase his prints online at his Etsy shop, Igor + Andre.

P.S. Sorry it’s been awhile since my last post – I moved to a new apartment earlier in the summer and work has taken up my time.
