Inspiration, Gillian Zinser (and some more drawings)
As mentioned in my previous post, I have finally grown to love maxi and midi length skirts and dresses. Although I am on the short side (at 5"4 ish) they actually seem to make me appear taller! A style icon I believe works these beautifully is Gillian Zinser from 90210, above. I adore her hippy-ish quirky outfits. I would describe her as one of those people you'd think throws anything they find lying about together and it just works. The fashion illustrations at the top are both mine, aswell as the background print. The illustration of Gillian on the right is taken from a photo where I noticed she had shortened her skirt by knotting up a section from the bottom, a good idea if you're short and don't want to be trailing your skirt along the floor!
P.S I've noticed my post popular posts seem to be the ones consisting of my illustrations, I was thinking of maybe creating a weekly feature or something, in which I would go out and take street style photos, drawing from them, if this is something my awesome followers would be interested in?
