If you follow me on Instagram,
you may have seen this image in a post yesterday ...
it was of one of my illustrations in progress,
in which I posed this question ...
"Know what's missing?
most of you knew the answer to that one was
"O" for DIOR!
Well, this post and that illustration
all began when two things happened:
The First Thing:
I was dreaming over the gorgeous new
Lady Dior handbag campaign
starring French beauty Marion Cotillard ...
and those gorgeous Dior handbags (below)!
The lush tangerine and lavender colors
of the delectable bags made me crave ...
YES ... SPRING!
Okay ... I mean the actual SPRING,
not this mischievous impersonator of spring we have now
that's been trying to make us think it's actually spring
by pointing to the calendar and snickering,
all the while sneakily throwing snowflakes in the air
and prompting brrr-cold temps to hang around.
Nope. NOT that spring. That's GRINCH Spring.
I want the spring of tangerine and lavender handbags ...
Sooooooo .... enter
The Second Thing:
As I was dreaming over the above
tangerine and lavender spring colors,
my mind drifted back to the recent
Dior Holiday campaign entitled:
An Exceptional Christmas
and remembered that when I first saw it
IT TOO felt a little springlike to me ...
I mean, nothing says spring more than
green garden parteres, hedges and florals, right?
So I took my spring daydream a little further
and went back to peek at that campaign again
to soak up a little more green ...
and thought you might like a revisit too ...
Sooooooo ... with all of that Dior inspiration,
the following just begged to be created ...
I mean ... wouldn't we all secretly like a swing like this?
Do you too feel more like spring now?
No revisit to a Dior campaign would be complete
without the video that goes with it
in case you missed it ...
or maybe you're JUST like me
and need to soak in lush green..
After all, who can blame us?
It IS almost Easter ... right?
In the video you can peek at the actual DIOR swing ...
See you Wednesday, darlings!
