Fashion illustrator Jennifer Lilya, who recently was announced as one of CUTOUT mags top ten fashion illustrators *ROUND OF APPLAUSE PLEASE* is about to make use of one of her many other talents - collaging.
The other day I was snooping around Facebook - when I came across this wonderful photograph on my news feed:
Aren’t they beautiful!!
If you - like me would LOVE one of these in your boudoirs (or house to you normal folk) then fear not as Jennifer Lilya is soon to be including these lovely items in her etsy store! *YAY*
MAKE SURE you keep track: http://www.etsy.com/shop/jenniferlilya
From looking at other photographs on her website, I have concluded that if you arm a talented fashion illustrator with piles of magazines - your left with beautiful collages here, there and quite literally everywhere!
Wouldn’t you just love your walls to look like this? You’d certainly have the most eclectic, eccentric and fashionable house ever!

If your feeling brave enough, post a reply with a photograph of one of your collages!

Just because I thought it kind of goes with all this chilly weather. I kind of like it. Okay so that’s a lie… I really like it.
Now if you do not already know who Jennifer Lilya is then all i have to say is SHAME. ON. YOU.
Jennifer Lilya is a fashion illustrator based in NYC (a.k.a the BIG apple… City that never sleeps… I think you get where I’m talking about).
She has been illustrating for years and has recently started blogging. This is brilliant for fashionista’s, frugalista’s and people generally excited about fashion and illustration EVERYWHERE… because it means that we can now look at her illustrations online, and keep up with her and her work - BRAVO!
Here is some of her latest work:
“I have a ton of projects on my plate right now – helping to design a line of clothes, a bunch of illustrations for blogs & websites and personal commissions. I’ve started collaborating with some great artists, so I’ll be featuring those on my sites when the time comes. I’m also planning an exhibit in Brooklyn this November.”
Until you get a chance to check out her exhibit in November (should you be so lucky) make sure you visit her blog by clicking here.
If you like fashion then you WILL enjoy it. Its as simple as that.
So amongst the glitter t shirts, leather leggings, fur coats and crocheted dresses this season - another trend to be making its way slowly but surely into the lime light is the denim jacket - this time however it comes with a new look that is shearling.
Basically - its fabulous. There isn’t much more to add about it. We all saw shearling collars on leather jackets last season - great if your into the whole aviator / Top Gun look, but this season its a little more subtle and relaxed. I think it looks fashionable and comfortable (who knew those two words would be in a sentence together ;) ).
The one above is from juicy couture and was also seen being worn by Kate Bosworth some time ago.
I unfortunatley do not have the funds. If you can relate to this - then do the same as me and march your little tush’s down to Primark and buy a denim jacket - stop at a fabric shop on the way home to get some shearling… and DO IT YOURSELF.
It may take a while but it will certainly be worth it in the end. In the meantime if you have any suggestions on where to get a slightly more affordable version for my wardrobe - please let me know. You will be saving my fingers from a lot of sewing work.
