    EEK! Your sketch made me hop right over the j.crew website. I work sooo hard all year to curb my shopping habits, but one thing I can’t resist is j.crew fall collections. It makes me wish for actual seasons here in southern california!

    J.Crew can put together outfits like nobody’s business…and they are definately at their peak in the fall.

    I love the coat! I fell in love with an outfit I saw yesterday… the best thing is that the temptation is not so strong, since it’s 100% autumn clothes and this morning at 6:30AM it was 88F here. Summer dresses for now!

    […] not quite ready for a heavy palette while it’s still 100 degrees outside. I think Nicole from Making It Lovely should join their fashion illustrator team, don’t […]

    Nicole you she-devil, how dare you send me over so that I will now pine for those gorgeous pumps with the pink bow.

    forgot to add… you should consider selling prints. i love fashion illustration and would love several chicas like the one you sketched above hanging on my wall.

    Oh, thanks. I’m eight months pregnant and have no idea when I’m going to lose the baby weight, and you’re taunting me with great fall clothes. Waaah! I guess it gives me motivation, though. ;) I love the orange jacket with the bracelet sleeves.

    I am such a fan of J Crew’s clothing. After I graduate in May (finally!) and have to get work clothes, this is definitely one of the first places I’m heading to.

    Your sketch is so pretty too. I wish I could draw. :)
