In The Dressing Room

I went to the mall yesterday. The highway we drove on was flooded from the melting snow and recent rainfall. We passed what seemed like ponds where once there were fields. Two lanes of the highway were closed to cars and open for the fishes. The world turns upside down and topsy-turvy and we drive on.
Outfit details: dress- Zara, tights- Forever 21, shoes- H&M, bag- Ruche

Some earnest commenters have convinced me to post a couple pages from my sketchbook. There are as many pages of collages as there are of doodles in it. A number are ink stained, since I continue to use a pen that bleeds all over my fingers. I often don't finish my doodles, some of these aren't even complete...and it won't be a habit of mine to post these.

Your drawings are so lovely and whimsical, dear! I do like them very much!

And it is flooding on my side of the state too!! Except we had around 3 feet of snow (if not more) and now it's all warm and wet! This is craziness, I dare say..

clairegrenade said...

your drawings are positively charming!!!
that last piece is especially wonderful!

Emily said...

I get stains & smudges all over my sketches too, but this is mainly because I'm left-handed and hold things awkwardly (or so I've been told) ;)
Your little jackalope is super cute!

Sarah Edwina Rose said...

Great idea to take pictures in the multi mirror dressing rooms.
The black ink drawings are really striking, its a shame you won't be posting them often! xsx

Amelia said...

I love your bracelets and the picture with the shoes. You're sketches are so nice. I really like the horse collage-thing.

Ambroisine said...

Ashe Mischief said...

Your hair looks like it is getting SO long! I love it.

And of COURSE I've seen Freaks & Geeks! It's one of my favorites-- and I definitely compare it to My So-Called Life in the "Greats Who Never Made It Past a Season."

Rachie-Pie said...

a cat of impossible colour said...

I love your doodles. They would make fantastic illustrations for a book. Maybe a sort of whimsical half-children's, half-adult's picture book?

amanda said...

I love the jackalope illustration!

You have a wonderful, whimsical, witty drawing style. You should sell your doodles on Etsy -- I know I would buy some!

THE HOUSE OF STYLE said...

I love the jackalope. It is amazing. Would make lovely embroidery. I have been looking at all doodles as potential embroidery lately.

the_kitten said...

oh they are truly beautiful! I love your "doodles". There is real wonderfulness in them, and I mean this!

  said...

1. that bag is absolutely beautiful;
2. your sketches are probably the best, heartfelt pieces I have EVER seen. Seriously, they are amazing! I wish you'd post these often, though... I'd love to see more!

lopi said...

I love that close-up picture of you smiling. It just brings joy.

Your sketches are beautiful. I remember back when you covered your laptop with that trademark pretty doodles, like those in the last picture. I was a bit jealous my laptop didn't look as good...

I would love it if I saw more of your doodles here from now on.

Anna-Maria said...

dearophelia said...

you're drawings are amazing, you should listen to your subscribers and put them up more.

or better yet, start a profile on this site www.redbubble.com

it's a site for artists where they can sell work and talk to other artists, i know i would buy that first penguin picture on a t-shirt.

pretty face said...

I thought you'd got a haircut, your hair looks really lovely!

I am seriously impressed by those doodles...really impressed. <3 <3

I loved your comment about girls in LOTF - so much so you inspired a mini rant in my comments section. God, can you imagine how different it would be? Definitely Cold War 2 rather than WW3.

Eyeliah @ stylesymmetry.com said...

Love all your lil bracelets. The drawings are very good, I love the jackalope pic - wow!

lisa said...

I think that first drawing would make an awesome anti-Valentine Valentine's Day card.

Swell Vintage - Frankie said...

Your drawings are spectacular!

tofuscloset said...

donna said...

Fancy drawings. I love all of them. Your tights look delicious. And your camera is awesome. What model is that? I've been wanting a Nikon D90 badly but I'm just too poor to buy one.

In-tree-gue said...

I like the pictures using the mirrors. Your doddles are lovely

Tahda said...

I love the doodles. a while back I looked at many your older posts - you used to posted lots of your art. Good to see you're still at it.

You are quite talented, my dear!

Tahda said...

PS: I think we have the same camera! don't you love it?!

AsianCajuns said...

Absolutely gorgeous sketches! We love your bag too ;)

Your talents are oozing. Lovely art!! Did you go to south center mall?

umeboshi said...

chelsea said...

you look lovely in your photos and i adore the doodles. thank you for sharing!

monkey_not_robot said...

i feel awkward commenting here, genderwise...but for once i have to speak up and join the calls for more of your "doodles".
the jackalope is already way beyond what i'd consider a mere "doodle". awesome. plain and simple.
and before i vanish into obscurity again: you dress nicer than anyone i've ever met. very classy and never garish.
'tis hard not to be blinded by the natural rest of your appearance though. (which is my way of saying "you're cute"). right. i'm rambling. last words: nevereverstopwearingtights.

Cris Lazoru said...

Sooo pretty! And that bag is to die love

K.Line said...

Denishabeybeh said...

first i love that striped dress you have there. i once found something like that, thought about purchasing it, roam more around, and when i go back to finally buy it, it's GONE! God i did not sleep for a week. i wanna be admitted to the hospital. drama.

second, you draw so cute. it's so like you. really you.

i have a sketch pad too, aka my note book in collage. the back of it actually, with my name and all the names of my crushes. hihi.

young said...

Unfinished or not, those drawings are absolutely amazing.

SO. said...

Hot Bot said...

Don't sell your doodles short, I (like everyone else) adore them. All of them.

Lydia said...

I am in awe of your artistic talent! Please keep posting these. I also love the gray and black stripes on you. And that bow bracelet is so unique, I love it.
Thank you for the sweet comment awhile back. It made me feel better!

closeup said...

first time on your blog :) I really like it :) and your bag is gorgeous!!!!!

Andrea said...

More doodles please! They're adorable. And I'm going to echo the request that you sell them on Etsy. I'm sure I could find a home for a jackalope in my little house.

the_real_phony said...

i really enjoy your "doodles." they're really lovely illustrations, with great whimsical lighthearted feel. Hmm... maybe I'll post some of my art eventually. My profile picture is a self portrait. But yeah, I really admire your clean style and selective use of detail.

Mimi said...

Your bag is adorable and I love the way you paired all those bracelets. I do same thing really often because it adds a funky touch.

And the drawings are superb.

Sales Rack Raider said...

I love your drawings! They are just delightful.

The silver bracelet you're wearing in teh picture is very pretty.

fash said...

i love the pattern you draw, the one on your laptop and nasha and the last picture. and your silver bracelet that looks like feathers tied in a bow, it's stunning.

jellyfishlondon said...

You need to post more doodles,i love them, I'm never patient enough with ink patterns.

annah-logue said...

i ADORE your 'doodles'
i'd buy prints!

Nico. said...

Your sketches are fantastic

Brittany Noel said...

Rebecca! This is the loveliest post! I love your pictures of the three-way mirror. So much fun! And your sketches are great! I love the last one the most. I have a thing for photos/drawings of feet. And I love how you've made the feet/legs the negative out of a pattern. I think you could sell that one as a print. I'd buy it at least.

fashionaddict said...

wonderful drawings. the beauty of doodles is that you don't have to finish them no? :)

Anna Pope said...

Love your outfit and the first photo. Very cute!

You are a very, very talented girl!

Lauren said...

Wow, those doodles are so incredible. I never really drawy with pen, but the black ink really adds a certain element to your drawings. I love the patterns in the last two.

melly said...

Becca Jane said...

I'm so so so glad you posted more of these, they are fabulous! very talented.

kelsea said...

frncs said...

I adore those drawings!

Maeko said...

In particular I find that tri-angle photo of you looking down demurely flattering, mature and rather beautiful in a simple, charming way.


as for your sketches, I honestly think you could make a living selling your designs as post cards and posters. Just an idea. Probably has already been pitched to you dozens of times.
