A New Look

Notice anything different around here? Yup, York Avenue finally has a header, and I couldn’t be happier with it! It’s a custom sketch created by the lovely and talented artist Esther Bayer. Esther was such a dream to work with. She is obviously over the top talented, and she really took the time to ensure that the end result was exactly what I had in mind. She is a super sweet girl and made the whole process really fun! I highly recommend commissioning Esther if you’re in the market for a custom sketch or blog header. If you’re not looking for something custom, you’re still in luck because Esther has an Etsy shop you just gotta check out. It’s full of gorgeous watercolors and fabulous fashion sketches. It was hard to pick just a few, but here’s a sampling of my favorite items from Esther’s Etsy shop:

All of Esther’s gorgeous $30.00 art prints are 25% off until the end of December, so if you’re looking for a holiday gift for the fabulous fashionista in your life, or just anyone who appreciates great art (or you want to give yourself a little gift!) you’re in luck!
