This week, it was just one of those weeks. The kind where you feel like you’re treading water. Looking outside, watching the summer go by and just trying to get through everything. But of course, there’s always those funny moments mixed in. Yesterday, this was going through my head: “I’ve hit a wall, nothing is coming together and this blank computer screen won’t cut it. I’ve gotta make some magic happen, NOW.” I ran down the street, grabbed a coffee and turned on some Hall and Oates because you can’t possibly be in a bad mood when they’re on. And it worked! Concepts started flowin’ and the day wasn’t a total bust. I created stuff that made me excited. If you’re feeling stuck, face the challenge head-on, take a walk, change up your tunes and MAKE IT HAPPEN.
I came home the other night and Joey was like, “Your dress looks great with the rug.” Yeah, I’m going to have to start filing mentions of the rug away for that Big Lebowski 2 film I mentioned. I first wore this dress for my birthday party in New York last year and will never get over the puffy roll-neck and the op-art masterpiece on the fabric. I just belt it, slip into my spiked sneakers and hit the road!
Most of last weekend was spent working on a packaging project. Sometimes it’s nice to switch things up and dig into the production side of things. Really happy with the way it all came together — there are a few more components that I need to wrap before sharing.
Yesterday, the new issue of W showed up. Before I get into a magazine, I usually do a quick flip-through, back to front. And Boom! The first thing I saw was this Akris ad. Maybe because I’d been creating poster designs all day, this layout just hit me as being somehow perfect. That shot of inspiration I was looking for.
Have a great weekend! I’ll be doing house stuff like wallpaperin’ the living room and IKEA prowlin’ for a few odds and ends. Trying to whip our place into shape for a late summer party. Any plans you’re looking forward to?
