What I Wore Today

I'm a bit of a Flickr addict and one of my newest obsessions over there is the awesome What I wore Today(drawings only) group. It's packed with absolutely gorgeous illustrations and great fashion inspiration. It's so fascinating checking out what the members from all over the world is wearing and what they have to say about their clothing and the day their having, and the BEST part is that it's all drawings....which I think is so much more evocative than taking a piccie of yourself in the bathroom mirror. You can really create a mood/feeling in a drawing that's hard to capture in a photograph when your not a professional photographer and have only yourself and your limited wardrobe to work with.

Also I have never in my life been able to keep a journal or diary, I just struggle to keep to a routine like that.....but I find this is working for me so far. It combines two of my passions - drawing and clothing, and I think it will be interesting to page through the book in the future and look back at what you wore.


  1. Gorgeous outfits! :) and gorgeous sketch as well.

  2. Danette - I am amiss at swinging by your blog!! What a wonderful post, but first, I have to just say, WOW, regarding pattern below...that is awesome. OK, so back to this post...WONDERFUL! I think this'll be something you will just flourish with. I love that there's such energy in your journal drawings...recently I attended an all -day workshop and one of the most amazing illustrators, stressed that you must draw, draw, and draw some more. So this, combining two things you love, is fantastic. Love that you MADE your shirt on the Sept. 30 illo. Wow...good for you - and thank you for stopping by and reminiscing about sewing...thank goodness for the good times with mom, right?
    I'll be back!! : )
