Eat Me Do "Breakfast Club" Collection

Hey! long time no blog, right?! Sorry :( no excuses, I suck sometimes..
But yeah! I want to talk about Eat Me Do 's latest collection. As probably only like 2 of you know (the last time I posted about Eat Me Do, I only had like maybe 2 followers!) I've loved the Austalian based brand designed by Lara Ivanovic for several years now. The name says it all; every single collection centers around food in some way or another. I know what you're thinking...and I know right?! "You had me at food." ;)
I cant think of very many other designers or brands that are confident enough in their creativity to base thier entire brand on such a specific pinpointed theme. I mean, regardless how extremely mega hugely broad the topic/chosen theme may be, it's also limiting. I'd be like "This is such a cute idea, I'm going to do it! ..fuck shit fuck, it has nothing to do with food...guess I cant do it" *cries curled up in a ball for 3 days*. 
But inspite of the potential limits Eat Me Do has had 6(out of 7) extremely strong and amazing collections thus far. The only one I really was not a fan of was her "Veggie Patch" collection. It seemed like the sucky-ness came out of now where, I mean in my opinion her strongest collection and lookbook was  B-A-N-A-N-A which was right before Veggie Patch, B-A-N-A-N-A was on anothert level. It was like when Matthew Mcconaughey did the Lincoln commercial "like wtf, why??" Looking at the eyesore aesthetic, poor quality and lack of creativity in Veggie Patch compatred to her other 6 genius collections, you would almost think someone else designed it. 
On a much much brighter note though,Breakfast Club (her newest) is right up there with B-A-N-A-N-A! Sooo good! Check it out..

Jeanette Converse

I first came across the amazing rainbow/ bunny/ kawaii enthusiast, Jeanette Converse on (where else?!) Instagram. I was immediately drawn to her enthusiasm, positivity and overall aesthetic. "This chick is fun af!" I followed her for several months, later discovering her Etsy shop. I hit her up on Depop a couple days later and I ended up ordering a custom jacket... I just told her what I wanted it to say and requested "rainbows" to be added somehow into the mix, but the jacket was predominantly her brain child.. I really wanted to just let her be super creative and do whatever.. And this was the result:

Completely rad, right?! 
So, Jeanette was awesome enough agree to a little interview..

Name: Jeanette Converse

Favorite childhood memory?
I was a State champion gymnast. Having spent most of my childhood upside down was wonderful and I totally recommend it! 💜

How would you describe your style?
I like to think my personal style is Japanese kawaii with a dash of punk rock and Lisa Frank thrown in for good measure. 

Who or what inspires your designs in your shop? Lately my husband and I have been watching nothing but Jpop videos and the art direction in them has been incredibly inspiring! Our favorites are by artists Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, Dempagumi Inc. and Baby Metal. My husband Dima Drjuchin, is also an incredible artist and we constantly inspire each others work. 

How /when did the bunny love startI have alway's loved cute animal cartoons such as Lisa Frank, Poochie, Care Bears, and Strawberry Shortcake. And I would always draw cute animals in the margins of my papers in school. But the original #bunbungirlgang jacket started as something I was going to make for myself. I thought putting a bunny on the back might be a cute idea, and when I painted it the face ended up looking so much like my maltepoo Glitter! I completely fell in love. And the response I received both online and irl was overwhelming. Suddenly lots of other people wanted a bunny jacket, so I made it my logo. And I have made many other jackets since that have been purchased by the most incredible people, including gorgeous goddess Elle Fanning. It has now become a staple of my shop and I am so thankful for all of the love and support that they have brought my way! 

If you could be any character from any nickelodeon show, who would it be and why?I think I would be Clarissa from Clarissa Explains it all, she always had the sweetest leather jackets, and a cute boy climbing up her window everyday!  

Brenda or Kelly?
Wow this is tough for me. I love them both! I like to think they worked out their differences and now run a bad ass girl gang that supports other women! (What can I say I'm a dreamer lol)

Brandon or Dylan?
Brandon all the way!  

Biggest pet peeve
When girls hate on other girls out of jealousy. Don't get me wrong, I get jealous sometimes too, There are a lot of amazing girls out there doing awesome things. But we need to support and inspire each other, not tear each other down. If you support awesome women doing awesome things they will support you too!  

Fastest way to your heart?
Food! Haha I am hungry 100% of the time. And I have many food guilty pleasures. 

What can we expect from Jeanette Converse in the near future? I hope to get Jeanette Converse into more shops this year, and I would also love to sell at some Cons. Etsy has been good to me, but I feel like my stuff sells really well in person. One of my biggest dreams is style/ create costumes for a pop star/ Jpop star! That would be too much fun

#Realtalk: A (not so) comprehensive look at how people really feel about our generation

I don't do many posts like this, but I thought this was pretty interesting;.
I typed the word "Millennials" into google several times with different verbs after it each time and these are screen shots of those results..

Hiii! A new editorial that I styled was published by Grunge N Art Magazine! We had some last minute hiccups / hurdles, but I'm so pleased with how it turn out! It honestly just reinforces my theory (or opinion rather) that when a team works as a collective rather than only being concerned about thier own craft/role, the final product will almost always be pretty amazing. Without hesitation or any doubt I will say that I not only respect and look up to my other 3 team members as artists but truly like and care about them as human beings.
