charcoal yourself pretty


{via}
No matter how old I get and how much further away I get from the respectable Barbie years, my heart still pitter patters over fashion sketches. The perfectly coiffed up-dos, the dramatic, magnificently applied eye shadow and the dazzling dresses are all begging to be transformed into real life à la mode Enchanted and off to live a life of glamour!

Naturally, to the fantasizing eye; these gals are just one storyline away from popping off of the page. Got any ideas for character profiles? I'm completely enraptured with the femme fatale in the upper right corner, love her gown, love her hair but really...she had me at black eyeshadow.

Which lovely lady would you like to emulate (or take on a date!) above??

I would say the Red Head or the Blondie! =)

Ooh, I so love these sketches. I want to be the first girl - the upper left-hand corner. Yes, she is incredible!

BTW...I totally agree with you on JWOWW's book. I read it the minute it arrived - quick read, like you said - and loved it. Like you said, a lot of it is pure fun, but it does have a lot of great points. :)

Either the blonde (top right) or redhead (bottom left). :)

I love the red head in the bottom left corner! If my ponytail would look like that on the regular I would be a very happy girl....plus I love a girl who can rock out red hair!

Black eyeshadow! My favorite, it's such a sexy look. I tried flirting with a woman from my floor at work who wore her sexiest with black eyeshadow. However, she gave me the "i'm kinda seeing someone" reply (whatever that means, cause I'm not a jealous person).

Black eyeshadow, always a favorite.

Also, my friend Leigh is an artist and you probably would like her work: http://jkldesign.blogspot.com/

I've always loved sketches too!!! Especially since I'm not any good at drawing. Always wished I could just take a pencil and effortlessly draw something pretty, just like the talented drawers do! lol
