Want to buy less fast fashion, but still love to shop? Buy vintage! I love going to second hand shops because you never know what treasures you might find. It’s also good for the environment ánd for your wallet, so what’s not to love?
(Almost) all items on here were thrifted by me, except for the lipstick of course 😉
PS. I still have 20% off on EVERYTHING in my ETSY shop until February 4th.

This will probably be my last what I wore illustration of 2019. I haven’t made that many of these this year, because I just haven’t been buying a lot of clothes. One of my goals at the start of the year was “Less stuff, more adventures” and I really have gotten rid of so much stuff already ánd bought very little new stuff. All the items in this drawing were bought before 2019, except for the skirt (and the food of course!) As for the “more adventure”part: I did travel quite a bit this year and tried some new things. I will continue to keep this goal going into 2020, with even less (unnecessary) stuff and even more adventures!
Bye bye November 2019! I will not miss you (although you had your moments). I’m happy and excited to start a new month in my new and improved workspace.
PS. I also still have my big SALE on Etsy until December 3th.
It’s starting to feel like autumn. I always love dressing for a new season but I do hope for some more summery days! (And I’m trying really hard not to get sick.)
Above an illustrated recap of my recent trip to Northern France. Below you can see the (very stylish and sunny) picture I had in my mind before going. Here now, is the more realistic “after” version. The weather was pretty bad (no bikini needed) and the trip certainly had some challenges (including being stranded hours away from our apartment at night, and no taxi willing to pick us up) but the bread, wine and cheeses were so delicious it made up for a lot and almost made us forget about the rain!
Reality: no bikini or aftersun needed. Raincoat instead.
Reality: zero time spend in the sea.
This is the illustration for the August page on my birthday calendar. It’s an older one but still pretty close to my IRL beach/picnic look today.
The last 2 months have been so busy that I almost forgot to make summer plans! Most days I happily spend behind my drawing desk. I also don’t have much new clothes to draw because I’m still trying to buy less and only what I really, REALLY love, preferably vintage, like some of the “old” favorites on here. If I buy something new, I have to get rid of 2 similar items, which is not always easy, but still makes me feel good about minimizing my stuff. I did get some new art supplies, which always makes me very happy! ☺️
