Mr. Big Bradshaw

Tulle be or not Tulle be… now there’s the obligatory question.

At the crossroads of Radically Chic Street and Shopaholics Anonymous, I’m bordering a quasi-suburbanite logic that if I can’t gallivant merrily about New York… why don’t I just bring a little Sex and the City to a vicinity near me?

Feeling somewhat zingy-zangy over the looming Halloween trickery, a fashion epiphany struck like a subtle carnage knocking at my door. Inevitably, this was followed by a swarm of butterflies in the pit my stomach that most experience while falling in-love. A mere 25 dollars and 12 grueling hours later, my Carrie Bradshaw/Neo-prima Ballerocker skirt was conceived, and I have my sewing genius mother to thank… because frankly, I can’t whip a stitch.

The Blahnik of skirts everywhere, the couture in a sea of converse, the gossamer kingpin… it is now the First Lady of my wardrobe.

Lucky is teaming up with and holding a smaller/separate contest for their "Style Your Jeans"... so if you're interested in winning uber-cool prizes while touting your give-all fashion, then click the link below and follow the contest instructions. It's simple. Take the "My Denim Transformation" Challenge and show'em what ya got!

Pfffffffff And such a scorching declination of "immaculate néo-romanticism" !!! I am sure (and the -"oddly GLAMOURissime" -forecast ) is easy !!!) that many persons would like to be the "Sex And The City-esque Mr Big" with a statuesque ballerina as You !!!!!

A Bientôt, Antoine

Ya know, I saw what the anoymous commenter said ealier and I've sen it on others blogs as well. I have my own blog too and I want to tell thesee haters to over it! Bella is lovely!
oh my god this is one of the most wonderful looks I've EVER seen in the blogosphere! I LOVE IT times a billion.
Link trade perhaps? Your blog is too fantastic.
I would email you more in depth about what you commented in my blog, but I don't see it in your page? Anyway, don't sweat it, we all get it. You can't escape it, unfortunately. As my Mom says, "there's one everywhere..." if you know what I mean.

Anyhow, I look forward to your comments, when I get an email saying "Bella" has left a comment for you in your blog, I feel all cheery like. Your drunk in the boots comment made me laugh out loud. I slip them on and off, like they were made for me. Everyday I want to wear them. Many more outfits to come with those babies. ;)

Keep on inspiring!

When life gives you lemons... add Patron

Yesterday's climax was hell-bent in every conceivable way, but even as I framed the scope of persuasive language, I'm grateful for silver-linings and unfathomably small miracles. During the course of this picture-taking calamity, I (in retrospect) remorsefully set my clutch on top of the truck and then proceeded to drive off only to remember this ill-constructed act an hour later. So there I am, set deep in the valley of the shadows of horror while driving back to the scene of the crime... where of course, the clutch had turned Houdini and magically disappeared.

But the long and short of it is that when I finally got home, a welcomed voice on the answering machine said they had my belongings safe and sound... minus the cash that had been removed during its prior abduction. So thank you Jessica for finding it, driving 60 miles out of your way so that I could retrieve it, and for saving me unwarranted amounts of angst. And in a sigh of reprieve and raw contentment, I've come …

Watercolor Wonderland x Nasty Gal

Still in shock...  Apart a from my instagram sneak peeks, it's been torture keeping this secret, but now I can finally share the amazing little fact that yours truly was featured on the one and only Nasty Gal (falls out of chair)!! When I was first contacted by NG and asked to design a few exclusive illustrations/paintings, I'm pretty sure my response was some highly intelligent verbiage falling along the lines of, "Wha-um-can't breathe. OMG am I dreaming?" But okay, here's a totally cliché moment... dreams come true!
