I just stumbled across these darling photos of my dear friend (and Matchbook illustrator!) Katie Evans. Seriously though, how cute is she?! I adore her quirky bracelets and gold heels — such style. I still remember how starstruck Jane, Fallon and I were the first time we met her (we’d long admired her work for Kate Spade). Katie’s so talented yet humble – a Matchbook girl through and through!
Illustrator Caitlin McGauley recently completed several illustrations for Tory Burch’s Spotlight and the finished product is beyond charming. I love her tradition of buying one new or vintage glass ornament per year, how sweet! The first watercolor is my very favorite though — orange, turquoise and leopard, oh my!
Morning loves! I have some exciting news for you—starting today the Matchbook team will be doing a giveaway every Tuesday until our launch in January! This week we’re giving away a large print by Swedish fashion illustrator Kristina Hultkrantz of Emma Kisstina. The poster is 30cm x 40cm (11.8″ x 15.7″) and the winner gets to choose from any of Kristina’s darling designs. I personally am torn between the Lolita-inspired frames and stack of classics, but the choice is all yours! To enter simply “like” Matchbook on Facebook and leave a comment below telling us your favorite illustration. We’ll draw a winner tomorrow at 4pm EST. In the meantime I encourage you to live vicariously through Kristina’s charming Stockholm adventures on her blog. I’m a regular visitor ; )
UPDATE: Congratulations to our winner, Laura Marie! I hope you love your new print! xx
Bonne chance and thank you so very much for your support!
