Would you like to join me for some tea,while I tell you of my week?I'm almost finished with mine,but since I'll be doing all the talking anyway...let me steep a fresh cup for you with my new Pagoda laden teacups from Tia. Don't you wish you lived next door to Ms. Smoochie Lips? Ofcourse no one would get anything done because we would all be too busy having fun!!!
Speaking of having fun...me and the fam just got back from Vegas,baby!!
Hmmm,which sister didn't listen...
...and which sister became The Enforcer?
We stayed at The Venetian,a beautiful and incredibly nice hotel,but certainly an Italianate,marble floored maze!My baby insisted this mural was a picture of mommy brushing her hair.
Naturally The Forum Shops at Ceasers Palace is a must!You see I never gamble while there ,but ALWAYS shop!The Forum shops is the perfect place to play out one of my favorite fantasies. *IF* I was a touring Rock Goddess ,and money was no object,what would I buy?
Well, I would start at The House of Emilio Pucci.
Make a stop at the Gap...
Where I would take all six of these white garments ,specially designed by Thakoon and Rodarte.There are a collection of 3 by a third designer ,but I care not for those garments.
Which would make room in my suitcase for LOTS of jewelry by Michal Negrin ,a spectacular Israeli designer heavily influenced by the victorian times.
Ah,but I only PLAY a Rock Goddess onstage. So this is what I actually came home with.For Crooked Halo a t-shirt that feels eerily prophetic(click to enlarge any image,while your author dabs a tear from her eye).
Another tee for the Little Blossom that is the gospel truth!
Urban Outfitters was having quite a sale and I grabbed their version of the 30's housedress for 17 dollars. Its actually better than real vintage. Oh,don't think I'm going soft on you,I had a fabulous dress almost identical to this one,that was from the 30's. Everytime I wore it it ripped a bit.
This brown dress was only 5 dollars,thats thrift store prices!
I may actually wear the back as the front (with the perfect vintage slip and accessories ofcourse.
There was one other item I was absolutely knocked out by. Anthropologie is carrying a few items by Anna Sui. This scrumdillyumtious silk blouse is 318.00. I decided to create my own version from a Kowalski undershirt,a vintage linen,a vintage collar,and a few vintage notions. Thus far its a WIP,but I think its going to scratch that Sui itch. I might even create a few more.
Last but not least some inspiration for Crooked Halos new room. We will begin that project in about a week,we have dear visitors to see this week. Up next, MOVCFM, where I take inspiration from a film that is a bloggyville fave and a contest to celebrate a special post.
