This commission piece was made for the lovely Juliana. ( @its_jayci ).  She explained to me that her room was a teal color with hints of neon pink and was covered in the damask brocade print. ( Which I had no idea what it was, until I googled it. ) I have definitely seen the print before but have never tried it. I’m such a huge fan of black and white print, which explains my constant use of stripes and polka dots. I’m obsessed I tell you! So I was super excited to try this one.

Either than a color scheme, she gave me full control of what to do with piece. I have to admit, I was stuck. I then realized, how long I have been wanting to paint a Minxette staring at herself into an ornate vanity mirror, everything just flowed from that  point on. I gave her some skin toned pantyhose, garter belt , of course!

She covers herself in a black sheet with white damask brocade print all over it. Baby pink wooden floors, with a white and black polka dot area rug…. let’s not forget her tattoo sleeve in silver with the minx logo!

You’re seeing these pictures now, but I had no visual of what her room looked like until AFTER the piece was done. I have to say, I think it fit in perfectly! I was even more satisfied that Juliana loved her piece, especially when she noticed that I had painted her Jeffrey Campbell spiked heels on the Minxette.

Thank you J. Enjoy.

DIY Wedges Makeover

I rocked these shoes once for a gig I had. I picked them out because they were simple enough to blend with my outfit. But after that night, I was sick of them.

I’m so used to having things that stand out, or basically, just a little weird. So to make that change that I grabbed a brush and paint and got to work.

Of course knowing me, I had to add stripes to the mix, and what better way to blend in black and white with some spikes! I’m in love.

I can’t wait to rock these.
