Styleeast - Illustrated

I commented the other day on some gorgeous illustrations posted by Style Slicker and imagine my surprise when I received an email this morning from the illustrator, Victoria Riches - a student at Kingston - with some drawings she'd done of my photos.  To say this was a lovely surprise is an understatement, I'm seriously touched that someone has taken the time to do this, and I adore the illustrations.  Clearly a very talented girl - check out Vic's photostream here  or catch her (and me!) at the Blogger Yard Sale on Sunday (23a Benwell Rd, N7).  And please leave a comment to show your appreciation for the artist...






The first two pictures are of little ol' me and the last is Jill, aka Polka Dot of Street Style London .

  8. Oh my goodness, I don't understand, Vic did that of me? That is SO NICE OF HER!! I saw the ones of Jen.. how can I reach her? (this is JIll btw: I forgot to sign in so I won't have a profile).

    I've really missed you, Jennifer EAst! I'm ready for a Fish Finger Friday any time you are. I don't know if I'm going to the yard sale.. I'm still in denial about this weather and keep clinging to the belief that come Sunday, we'll be lounging on a British beach somewhere, sipping pina coladas, swimming in that warm, turquoise British sea.

    Hot damn, she is really really talented. I love how she even captured my suede shoes!! Have you met her? xoxoxo

  9. @ Nicole - good luck on Thursday, your drawings are amazing, you've got it nailed!

    @ Jill - hi! I don't know Vic but I hope to meet her soon (maybe at the yard sale!). She just picked these photos at random - the first is the one you took of me on our last FFF. I hope the sun comes out for you, I really do, but if not then it'd be great to see you Sunday. I'm meeting Saskia about 1pm xx
