ArtIllustrator: Luci Everett

 
I’d like to introduce you to the work of Australian illustrator, Luci Everett, a mistress of paper, watercolor and collage! With a curious, Indie sensibility and a soft, feminine hand, her darling little works remind me of long summer vacations spent journaling, drawing and whiling away hours with handicraft.
 
 
 
Below are a few pages from her book, Pillow Fight, which she describes as, “A visual & experimental documentation of the whimsical, illogical, curious and frightening nature of dreams. A tactile book which documents dreams collected from friends and strangers visually translated in surprising ways.”
 
 
 
 
 
Attention Readers! Do you draw or illustrate? We would love to see your work and possibly feature it on our blog! Email sienna@lulus.com with images or a link to your work!

FashionScene Stealer: Mod Style of Carnaby Street, London

The 1960s is, by far, one of my favorite decades for fashion. From the structured dresses of the Mods, to the free-spirited Hippies, the times were a-changing and the clothing reflected that. What is so amazing about Carnaby Street, you ask? Well, let me just show you!
Carnaby Street became a hot spot for the hip and fabulous Swinging London scene, with independent fashion boutiques and designers who helped popularize the Mod style. One of those designers included fashion legend Mary Quant who practically invented the mini skirt and brought us one of our favorite fashion icons, Twiggy!
While we have no time machine (sorry guys), you can still get the Mod look with a little help from some A-line dresses, Peter Pan collars, and stylish flats!

GeneralMarita Francescon: MakeUp Now!

In my dream mansion by the sea, I would also have my own walk-in closet and a boudoir filled with these:
 
 
 
The incredibly talented architect and designer Marita Francescon studied in Naples, Madrid, and Barcelona, and she currently resides on the island of Ischia in the Gulf of Naples– poor thing!! Her focus in designing is to create objects that convey the joy of living and positive emotion, and these awesome makeup-inspired creations definitely hit the mark. 
 
 
Mascara-shaped hat rack? Yes, please!
