TOOFLY BUBBLE STICKER

I’ve been on a roll this past few weeks creating new designs for my spring product line. I recently created my latest die-cut bubble sticker at 4″X3″. It’s been a minute since I made one. I believe the first bubble sticker I made was back in 2005! Almost 10 years ago. Everyone’s jumped the boat since then. It’s all good cause while everyone’s biting your style and your ideas your originating them. True skill over hype anyday baby!

NATIVE SOUL TOTE

March 29th, 2014 | Category: Art & Design,Fashion,TOOFLY SHOP NYC

My first ever tote is hot off the press! This past year I created a few new ink drawings. Recently I started messing with them as new designs for t-shirts and totes. The “Native Soul” ¬†image was one of the very first drawings I started this whole series with. I love the hair flow, and native patterns. She’s my favorite so far. $25.00 now exclusively available on my online¬†shop

ARTE.VIDA.CULTURA.

Earlier this year during my trip to Peru I met Alejandro Carranza Vela. A local artisan who travels throughout South America ¬†“parchando” ( setting up shop on the street ) and living a carefree street life. From Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Ecuador, and heading north this year, Alejandro is an amazing soul. I was impressed with his handmade jewelry works on metal, and thread. It’s amazing what one can do with stones, rocks, and beads. There is a whole tribe of friends like Alejandro who travel and set up shop in plazas. They live on the basics, and spend afternoons under the sun making art, music, and friends. I’m enchanted with this whole bohemian hippie life! ((( Inspired ))) Stay tuned for our 2013 jewelry/art collaboration:)

LADIES LOVE PROJECT‚ĄĘ HOLIDAY 2012 RE-CAP! 11.17.12

November 20th, 2012 | Category: Community,Events,Fashion,POP UP SHOPS

Success! LLP rocked it out this year. It was¬†particularly¬†special this time around because we worked really really hard to make the Holiday Pop-Up Shop kick off the holiday bigger, and better than ever. Our new location in the lower east side made all the difference. Thank you UNIVERSITY SETTLEMENT! We also had the most vendors this year, and the most interactive booths. From nail salon, to make-up on set, tarot card readings, live silkscreening, and the infamous LLP photobooth! It was also one of our biggest turnouts. Our little counter investment proves it! LOL…The LLP team wants to send a super warm and special thank you to everyone who joined us this year, and who made it all happen. Shout out to hommie Yevette Hidalgo who helped us gather items for folks affected by hurrican Sandy. Any little effort counts. From an amazing crop of creative vendors, to fly, and heart felt performers, to the foodie cooks who kept our energy going, our darling photographers, and to our special sponsor this year Vita Coco. We like to thank Allison at University Settlement for all the help in making this happen we look forward to building with you on future events:) To all our guests thank you for all the community support and for shopping handmade and local. It’s a little hard to fit all the wonderful pics we took this year so visit out LLP Facebook Page to see the rest. Allright ya’ll, in case you missed it here’s a re-cap of LLP HOLIDAY 2012!!!

We had some really dope vendors on board this year! Thank you everyone!

NEW! TOOFLY SPRING 12′

March 20th, 2012 | Category: Art & Design,Fashion,TOOFLY SHOP NYC

HELLLLLLO SPRING! My favorite season of all. A time to come alive again, and spring up with a fresh new look. I’ve been busy working on some new goodies for ya’ll. Happy to finally get a chance to share them with you on this special day.


There’s an array of (((NEW))) items with lot’s of pop colors and native designs as well as the classic NYC graff styles you all love. The mini graffiti canvases were a great hit during the holiday so I decided to make some for the shop for all to enjoy. I couldn’t wait to work with my wood crafter guy again. I was out of stock on a bunch of items. The holidays wiped me out. The eco-block rings continue to be a huge hit season after season so when I finally got a new batch to work on I got busy painting!

The designs are as colorful as ever, and come in various styles. Our new special item, the embroidered flower earrings, was a lot of fun to work on especially because it’s a collaboration between my mom and I. I love these designs! I have always wanted something this colorful to wear with my spring dresses. Make sure to cop yours they are extremely limited in numbers.

I’m really inspired living in South America these days, I hope you enjoy the new Toofly steelo flowz:)
