This page from my October 1948( I know, I switched decades!) ,Seventeen Magazine is making me smile!
Did you know Rita's forehead was so mall they made her pluck it for more face real estate. Imagine that, a red-head with a small forehead.There are more scanned goodies to come from this e-bayed vintage fashion delight!
Speaking of e-bay,look what else I bid on and won....and for just 15 dollars(shipping included)!An incredible hand painted Mexican skirt to go with my collection! The seller let it go cheap because it has a couple of small age marks on the back.These souvenir skirts get way up there whenn bidding,so I am smiling a lot! I might even be able to remove the spots.
Quite the "bodice ripper" dontcha think? Barbara Cartland would be proud.
Speaking of romantic heroines,look at Willow in Tara's dress from the "Once More With Feeling" Buffy eppy.I have been captivated by the BTVS Season 8 comics,scripted by Joss Whedon himself.I am smiling because today my pre-ordered issue of number 6 will be mailed out!There is something about her ethereal witchy beauty here that reminds me of Kate Bush
She always makes me smile and she moves me to tears as well,so beautiful is her music.
Fess up! How many of you were fished in by this brilliant but kitschy marketing ploy?
Jack and Jill are making me smile ,AND they're available in my ETSY store.
I am simply agog over this months Paper magazine.It has an incredible article about fashion extremists. Simon Doonan and Ruben Toledo chat it up about the crazy/wonderful style mavericks Iris Apfel,Anna Piaggi,and of course..... the rare bird herself,the late,Issey Blow.This issue is full of eloquent musings on personal style.
....and don't miss the "outsider artists" takes on this seasons collections from Creative Growth.
Its time for another round of my FANTASY GOOGLE IMAGE FASHION STYLIST game.
This time in preparation for the beautiful Elizabeth's Bloglandia Ball on September 26th. Getting dressed for a special event is always smile worthy! This time I chose a stunning red gown.
I added jeweled flowers at my neck....and just so you would be sure to recognize me an antique pagoda embroidered purse....but I gotta be me...
So I shall kick up my heels in these Dia de los Muertos boots!
Don't forget the date September 26th!It will be a full moon so be there!Lastly a face that is always smilicious to me.OOOOO,scary! Puts me in the mood for Halloween!
