So, Justin's little sister Abigail is graduating from FIT! How exciting huh?! I love my antique jewelry and hair doodads....one day she emailed me asking if it would be okay if she invested in some cute antique earrings she found in some little boutique. I of course encouraged the purchase of trinkets unique. For her graduation present I spent a day going to all of my favorite antique shops, small boutiques...and of course Anthropolgie, buying up all the pretty little accessories I could find. I designed a fun hand illustrated wrapping paper (as she too is an illustration major) and illustrated tags to attach to each piece of found jewelry. On the backs of the tags I included websites/contacts of places to begin job hunting. For instance, Surtex website for next year's show and Wearhaus ( a local fashion event HQ here). So, not only is the present pretty and fashionable for the Fashion Institute grad, but also informative. Congrats Pretty Abba! I hope you enjoy.
