So, something you might not know about me is that I used to want to be an artist. I drew all the time as a child, and continued to dabble in sketching and painting as I got older. Unfortunately, besides a few art classes in college to fill credits, I never pursued it professionally. (Although, I come in handy for babysitting and birthday parties!)
I say all that to say this–I am always on the lookout for new, pretty artists. On a cruise last year, I bought my first two pieces of real artwork by an artist named Shan Merry. (The artist, ironically, turned out to be a former designer for Hermes, which explains why I was so obsessed so quickly.)
I love fashion-inspired pieces–I used to spend hours designing my own clothing line by drawing little runway models. (Actually, I turned that into credit during high school. We had to conceptualize and write a business plan for a profitable business. Everyone else did things like airlines, party planning, or major league teams. I picked a fashion line and a boutique in SoHo.)
While clicking around Horchow’s 30% off the entire site sale this morning, I came across some really adorable greeting cards by Pergie Pergamino. So. Cute.
|I would get married in that dress. Rwar.|
|Gosh, I’m pretty.|
|Who needs a Bachelor?! I can take my own helicopter rides!|
|If Blair Waldorf liked dogs…|
|Don’t be sad, sweetpea. Look at your closet!|
|This one is for all you fashion bloggers out there. Haha.|
|Ahhh, I love peacock feathers.|

All the cards come with cute little epigraphs on the inside, and the envelopes themselves are like little works of art. Anyway, you should check out their site and buy a card and write me a love letter and mail it to me so I can feel special and then frame it.
Also, does anyone else think that they need to come out with their own clothing line ASAP? I think I would wear every single outfit.
AND THE SHOES.
