We just published details about our March event! I’m really pumped about it because it’s going to be hosted at one of my favorite venues in town, ADC, the “gallery in the sky.” On the walls of the gallery (special just for our event!) the owner, Litsa Spanos, is going to feature local artists who use eco-conscious, repurposed materials in their pieces. Also, we’re doing a different spin for the fashion show — it’s going to be an hair/makeup show by the stylists at Alba Organic Beauty Studio (they use all organic and non-toxic products!). It’s also going to be a fundraiser and drive for clothing/jewelry donations. See below for all the details — hope to see you there!!
What: View eco-chic hair/makeup fashion show and eco-conscious art by area artists. shop local businesses, enjoy refreshments, and a swag bag valued at $250. Tickets are $10/pp, and all proceeds benefit St. Vincent dePaul. Plus, receive a raffle ticket for each gently used item brought for donation (click here to see list of requested items). From jewelry and boutique gift certificates to spa and salon packages, more than $3,000 in fab prizes are up for grabs!
Get ready for tears, joy, and cocktails! Join The ADC Gallery on Sunday, December 11th from 6-9pm for a book signing and cocktails with local hometown hero and writer Joules Evans!
Here are the deets:

This is a great opportunity to get out of the house, dress up, and hear the truly amazing story of an extremely strong woman! Free Parking is available and there will be an opportunity to purchase her book at the signing. Be sure to join us for what is promised to be a night you won’t soon forget! See you there!
Thanks to my intern Sara Elliott for helping to put this blog post together!
My friend Litsa Spanos (who owns ADC, Art Design Consultants) recently started a new blog. It’s all about interior design trends, inspiring ideas, and features on local artists. I’m helping her insert video in her blog, which is exciting because I’ve been learning so much and meeting so many amazing local artists in the process.
Her most recent blog was really interesting, and because it was fashion-related, I thought I’d share it with all my fashionista readers here on my blog! Below is a little snapshot of her most recent blog post. If you want to read the whole post, and see the video I produced for her, click here! (Oh, and PS we just wrote this awesome story on Cincy Chic about another thing she’s working on: The Scar Project. Click here to read all about that)
Are you unsure about your personal style? Is that large wall in the entry way empty and dying to be filled? I’m here to tell you—there is no need to stress any longer. There are indeed ways to find your style of art and discover a feel and look that fits your space and personality! Look in your closet!
Looking through your wardrobe is a great way to begin honing in on your own style. Consider the colors you tend to favor, and the shape or structure of your wardrobe…
Do you tend to choose earth tones or bright colors?
Do you wear a lot of patterns?
Do you like a simple outfit with clean lines or a relaxed look with lots of layers?
Do you prefer feminine floral patterns or things with masculine flare like a leather jacket or boyfriend blazer?
Or do you—like me—enjoy several looks? No personality is one-dimensional, why would your style be any different?
Your fashion style can easily correspond with your taste in artwork. Bright colors and bold patterns could mean you enjoy abstract and/or modern art. If you find yourself wearing soft neutral tones, and cozy winter sweaters you may like canvas paintings with romantic tones or whimsical brush strokes—looks that bring warmth and comfort to any room. If you like feminine florals and summer dresses you may also like floral art—whether it is traditionally “realistic” or representative. If you like fashion that portrays strength—structured blazers or leather accents, you may like copper or metal art that expresses confidence…. keep reading here….
