Popping in to say Hello!
Oh yes,my Christmas decor is already up(thus I had to change my fall blog decor)! I will take pics and have my holiday open house later,but I just wanted to pop in and say hello! I have a funny feeling The Pagoda will get a bit dusty this upcoming month.My rehearsals begin tonight,and my role in this show is bit bigger than my role in Hair was,plus my daughter is in it ,plus its the holidays!
I did hit a couple of extraordinarily delicious estate sales last week and wanted to share the bounty(including the bendable twin cuties in the top pic)! Bedjackets!
Several of them for almost nothing!I've already worn this white one with the delicate rose embroidery,and because I like to mix them up with denim,I throw all of them in the washer and wash on the gentle cycle,even the silk ones!
I also stocked up on beautiful old lady crystal beads!
This necklace/choker in particular will be seeing mucho holiday wear(you may click to enlarge images).
Check out this adorable vintage needlework bag.
Or how 'bout this one?I found both of these at the thrift last week for under 2 bux!
Anyone care to comment about Project Runway last week?
Though I did think it was a wee bit early to veer away from solo work,I thought the challenge,(design something for Sarah Jessica Parkers "Bitten" line for a crazy small budget,what was it? eleven dollars?) was quite wonderful.I love making premature and provocative predictions,but boy did I get it wrong with Marion! I admit to basing much of my early attachment to him on his very clever submission video,plus when he got a pot shot in on Babys Breath (on his vid)he had me!On the other hand I got it right about Elisa. I am loving her!Crazy new-agey spitmarks and all ! Her ensem was probably my fave of the challenge,though I did expect Victorya's design to win the challenge even while I found it a bit boring.Thus far,I am sticking with my original predictions for final 3. Rami's design was excellent and a bit bland.Interesting that he chose as a partner ,my other prediction Jillian. My final ,and totally UN-scientific choice was Stephen,Marion's partner. Did you see his sketch? While horizontal stripes look good only on those over 6 feet and under 110. I thought his sketch to follow the Bitten "dossier" quite well and it was beautiful and chic. I was very surprised Marion's sketch was picked at all.
Who in my heart of heart wacky fashion loving self do I favor? Jillian,Elisa,and Kit(loved her Bitten piece).
Did anyone see Enchanted over the Holiday week? Adorable! In many ways I felt like I was watching my own autobiography,so enchanted is my own life,complete with my own Mcdreamy man!Oh,yes,there is much bursting into song around my house!
I promise to do my best to keep up in beautiful Bloglandia ,but hope you will forgive my absence. I decided to let myself off the hook for this months "My Own Vintage Clothing Fashion Magazine",its my fave thing to do in my personal cyber corner,but its one too many things for me this November! My show opens mid December so expect to see me back on a more regular basis then. This will be unchartered but terribly exciting territory for me(doing a show with Ruby). I am usually a bit of a lone wolf when it comes to my artistic process,but I happily will make room in that process for my first born!
