ANNOUNCING WORK PLAY AND SOCIETY 6

9.30.2014




The moment we have all been waiting for has finally arrived, you can now purchase my watercolors as prints, mugs, totes, cards and so much more. Start your holiday shopping early (or just treat yourself), and head over to Society 6. I couldn't be more excited to launch my site, and I can't wait to hear about the items you purchase. Make sure to send me an email (amylschwager@gmail) or hit up social media with photos of your items once they arrive. 



I can't say enough great things about Society 6. Their products are of amazing quality, and they ship fast! I got my "Among the Flowers" case within a few days (and for all of you with the latest and greatest iPhone 6, Society 6 is about the only place that has cases right now). I suggest signing up for their email blasts because they do free shipping now and again. 

If you see something you like, but it isn't exactly what you want, contact me for custom prints or paintings. If you want something we will find a way to get it to you! Lastly, I am currently taking bookings for custom holiday cards and gifts, so get on the schedule before I am booked up.

I'D RATHER BE WEARING MILAN FASHION WEEK

9.22.2014



Another fashion week in the books, and this might have been my favorite yet.

Iceberg had the perfect pants and color-blocking. Versace did geometric patterns like we've never seen them before, and Blumarine had the softest florals. We've been seeing the romantic Dolce & Gabbana images all over social media, they took bedazzling to the next level. Short full skirts by Philipp Plein reminded us of a modern Scarlett O'Hara.

Next up is Paris! And if you missed my New York and London reviews, be sure to check them out.

BOTANICALS IN THE SKETCHBOOK

9.19.2014


Just a quick little sketch before bed last night. I expect to see more and more botanicals this year, and I'm not mad about it.


I'D RATHER BE WEARING LONDON FASHION WEEK

9.16.2014

And that's a wrap. London Fashion week has come to a close, and I still really want to go shopping. Here are a few of my favorite runway looks.

Emilio de la Morena was fabulous in all its iridescent and textured fabric. Colored leather is here to stay and Alexander McQueen taught us how to wear it. The best work wear goes to Orla Kiely, the vibrant colors will make you want to wake up in the morning. Topshop brought us the best party dresses and Mother of Pearl showed us patterns done right.


If you missed my favorite New York looks, check them out here. Next up, Milan.

I'D RATHER BE WEARING TIFFANY



Tiffany's newest director, Francesca Amfitheatrof, just launched her first collection, Tiffany T, and it's left us tempted to blow 6 months of rent on one bracelet. The collection embodies the Tiffany brand in the most simplistic and refined way. Each piece is a show stopper when paired with your newst LBD and fav heels or stacked with the friendship bracelet your niece made. These are the classic pieces you'll hand down for generations, and years from now people will find themselves scouring vintage stores and ebay just to get ahold of one.

So, excuse me while I go and try to win the lottery, the Tiffany T square bracelet in gold is calling my name.

“I BELIEVE THERE IS
GREAT POWER IN
SIMPLICITY.”

—Francesca Amfitheatrof, Tiffany & Co. design director

I'D RATHER BE WEARING NYFW

9.11.2014



The end of New York Fashion Week has left me with the urge to go shopping. A whole lot of shopping. Here are just a few of my favorite runway looks. 

Michael Kors whole show was fantastic, florals and coats that will be in our dreams tonight. Theory stuck with bold colors and structured perforated goodness. 3.1 Phillip Lim rocked the house with the most beautiful asymmetric pieces we have ever seen. As always Oscar de la Renta astounded us, the fringe and flowers done to perfection. The long awaited Boss line was better than we could have imagined. 

What we took away from the week.. Gingham, botanical prints, braids, and head-to-toe white.
