ArtSite to See: Camilla do Rosario’s Portfolio

Brazilian-born Camilla do Rosario is a young fashion illustrator extraordinaire making waves in the design world, regardless of the fact the she is only in her early twenties! Her colorless line work melts seamlessly into a modern color palette with tribal tendencies, and not only is she a master of drawing and painting, but this South American phenom has a careful eye for collage as well. Her sketchblog on Tumblr is enough to make you dig out your pad and get drawing, but her portfolio features even more of the polished pieces seen below!

FashionMissoni SS 2013: Welcome to the Playground!

Even if an Italian vacation isn’t in your near future, you’ll get all the excitement of planning one when you see the Missoni SS 2013 collection! This warm-weather collection features a sprinkling of Missoni’s signature candy-colored zigzags, but is surprisingly toned-down with neutral frocks, tops, and swim low-lighted with understated bits of color and pattern. The vibe is like a newfangled playground located on the grounds of an Italian villa, and there’s plenty to appeal to both mothers and daughters.

FashionUlyana Sergeenko Couture S/S 2013 by Olivier Zahm

Take a seat in the front row of Ulyana Sergeenko‘s Spring/Summer 2013 Couture runway show!

The 32 year old Russian fashion designer, photographer, and former model has been one of the biggest stars on the map for 2012, and things are getting to a steamy start in the new year. In fact, you’ll find as many pictures of the ultra-stylish Ulyana herself as you will of her nostalgic fairytale designs. Her latest collection has been quoted as “Gone with the Wind meets Wizard of Oz” where models walked out from a gigantic open storybook and down a glittering gold runway (à la yellow brick road). Olivier Zahm of Purple Diary takes us there!

DIYValentine’s Day DIY: Heart-Shaped Tea Bags!

Because Valentine’s Day doesn’t just have to be about you and your boyfriend!

This Valentine’s Day DIY is perfect for sharing with your BFF’s, your mom, your grandma… or any tea lover you know. Pick out your favorite loose-leaf tea (or blend your own) and have fun creating personalized messages on the little tea tags.

TIPS: I used a sewing machine for this project, but you could easily sew these by hand as well. Just use short stitches so the tea doesn’t fall out. When you’re done sewing, leave a double-length of thread approx. 4″ long; this will serve as the string for the tea tag!


What are you making for Valentine’s Day?
