Are blogs dead

Intermix says - go graphic! Fashion illustration by Katie Cadamatre

I’ve been agonizing over this for a while. And, after careful consideration and much consultation, I’ve decided to shift gears with my blog.

I’ll be putting the using my Instagram and portfolio to highlight and share my finished work. Plus, I’ll be putting more effort into my Youtube channel to share my process and development. So this space, my blog, will be dedicated to my thoughts, ideas, and other random things I want to share with the world. (Essentially, I’m going back to blog basics.)

Why Change the Blog?

Sadly, the truth is, I’m not a fashion blogger. I don’t look ah-mazing in my (plain AF) outfits. There’s really no need for me to share “my #ootd” or let you know where I’m eating. (Spoiler alert: It’s probably my couch.) I’m an illustrator. And, my focus is my artwork. It takes a while for me to make quality artwork. Rather than stretch myself thin trying to generate (somewhat duplicative) content for this site – I’ll be focusing on making beautiful art.

And, I’ll be using this site as a diary of sorts. (So, I foresee the already low hit count on this site to diminish more.)

For those of you who stick around, thanks for the support and good luck reading my ridiculous rants and grade-school-level writing!

Best,

Katie

Street Style Sketch: Soho, Mercer & Prince

Spotted these summer cuties in Soho the other weekend. Shopping with your bestie is definitely the best!Bestie alert on Mercer & Prince. Street style sketches by Katie CadamatreI was immediately drawn to their coordinating, but individual styles. They looked like they were plucked from the pages of a magazine. So, I had to take my creeper photo to sketch later.

I love the fun fashion details. And, I love how the girl on the left added interest to her all black attire with full sleeves and a hint of gingham at her feet. Plus, you know I love nothing more than an easy effortless summer dress. These fashion friends know what’s up.Soho Street Style Sketch, fashion illustration by Katie Cadamatre

July ’17 Fashion Calendar

Believe it or not, July is here! You may or may not know this, but July is possibly my favorite month. Why? Because it’s my biiiiiiirthdayyyyyy monthhhhhh! (Yes, I’m one of those people.)  I couldn’t skimp out on the fashion calendar. I’m happy to share it with you – on time! I love this dress, which I saw in a Goop email newsletter. (Yes, I subscribe to the Goop newsletter. I mean, of course, I aspire to be like Gwyneth!)

Love this dress

I’m thinking the team at Goop is on to something with free-flowing summer dresses. It looks super comfortable, cool, and cute! I’ll take three, please.

I hope you enjoy this month’s calendar. I’ve already loaded mine onto my phone and desktop. (:
