|Fashion illustration : Going Dotty Over Vintage Fashion in Black & White © Shell-Sherree|
Fear not, this fur is faux. Thankfully when illustrating, the case is always so.
In a bid to disappear from the heat into a snowy wonderland, I was about to post one of my Paris carousel illustrations from several years ago and changed my mind. Sorry if I've just disappointed you. It's somewhat like saying, "I saw a majestic bunch of flowers at the markets that were so 'You'! Here's a box of champagne truffles... I hope you like them." My bad.
Nonetheless, here we are, with a something vastly different from the highly detailed and delicate work embodied in that gilt-edged and pastel-encrusted carousel, tiny enough to fit on a sheet of A4. You could take this vintage ensemble for a spin on one of those winter-clad horsies and be snug as a bug in a rug. Oh, all right then. Go take a peek. Don't say I never give you anything. Hang on ... do say I always give you something? Curse you, double negatives, and pass the hip flask of brandy. And on that note ...
Happy Fashionable Friday to you !
