While my initial intention for today’s post was to write about something completely non fashion related, last night I stumbled upon the works of Berlin based artist, Belinda Chen and had to share her with you. Belinda does everything from fashion illustrations to mixed media collages and has been featured in a number of magazines such as SOKO Magazine and N*Style Magazine. I particularly love her heavy and noticeable use of outlines reminiscent of Matisse and another artist I’ve featured on Runway Hippie, Hope Gangloff.
I’ve always wanted to try out mixed media art but either never have the time or get extremely frustrated when the piece isn’t turning out the way I envisioned it…which is probably why I’m not an artist…
Either way, I’m completely obsessed with Belinda’s work and I think it’s only a matter of time before her illustrations pop up in more well-known magazines like NYLON and Paper.

Even though summer isn’t officially over until September 21st, I’ve always considered the final days of summer to be Labor Day weekend. Its around this time that summer tans begin to fade, kids are back in school, summer homes are seeing their final barbecues, and people are more than ready to bid adieu to their summer clothes.
I always find Labor Day weekend to be a bit bittersweet. As much as I love that the season is changing and fall is just around the corner, I tend to feel a little sad knowing that the long days of summer are coming to an end. So, before I wrap my head around the fact that it is actually autumn, I thought I’d look back and highlight some of my favorite events from this past summer.
