These two ladies commissioned by Jess Gold, designer and proprietor (with Catherine Doyle) of Dobbin Clothing ( I was so impressed by Dobbin's mission, to produce beautiful luxury staple pieces manufactured ENTIRELY in New York City's Garment District, at an affordable price point. My ladies wear looks from their opening collection, but their current Fall '13 collection is gorgeous and worth a gander. Italian fabrics, chic staple pieces, all made in New York!

Read about Dobbin's Jess and Catherine:

"We started Dobbin with a simple idea: a line of fashionable staples, tailored to fit and flatter, using the best Italian fabrics, and manufactured here in the USA.  We also knew we wanted to keep prices under $200 without sacrificing quality, so we set out to sell exclusively online, where we could cut out the middle-man and pass the savings to our customers.

The two of us - Jessica Gold Newman and Catherine Doyle - met at Liz Lange Maternity in 2003, where we headed the company's marketing and fashion design, respectively. We bonded quickly over our mutual love of art and literature, vintage fashion, and the city of Paris. We've been friends ever since."

What do I paint in a heatwave? Ladies in print, ladies in maxis. Here's a peek into a new fashion project.  Stay cool out there, my friends!

Latte Lady.

After flipping through the Spring '13 Anthro catalogue, I painted my own little "Latte Lady" by her be-curtained kitchen window, hydrangea latte bowl and all! I do eat my cereal from their palest mint-colored one every morning. I think it's important to (not only eat color!) but do what you can to get color into the little moments of your day.
