Did you know that some believe that wearing peacock feathers is bad luck? Especially in theatre – they’re not allowed on stage. But others believe that peacock feathers protect our psychic health, and keep them in their homes… peacock lore

Gosh I have so many wonderful outfits to share with you – but Jule Hastings just sent me the finished product from our shoot a couple of weeks ago, so here it is. I seem to be attracted to peacock colors lately – one of my bedrooms is decorated in that theme, and I often find myself choosing peacock colors to dress myself. They’re a pretty joyful natural combination  – definitely not bland 🙂 I wanted to wear a White Widow face makeup for our shoot, since it’s Julie’s baby. So many gorgeous offerings there – and when I saw the peacock style I knew what my dress would be 🙂

I don’t know about you but I just drool when I’m in the Fellini Couture store. Every dress is a work of art, and has its own unique personality. I own a number of her gowns and I really need to blog them! So special. The Blue Bird gown is no exception. I decided to forgo the headpiece, for the sake of a more intimate expression, and added a fan, ‘cos I’m a flirt. This one is from Urid Dal’s Hat Shop. He’s got other things there – vintage-style hats, some canes and umbrellas – but it seems his specialty is these fans, which come in many different colors and a few styles. You can carry it closed or open.

I have to tell you about the shoes. They are from Firebird Designs, simple and nicely shaped and textured as you see – didn’t want to get too complex because there’s plenty going on with the outfit. I got them on Marketplace, and what do you suppose the packaging was?




Apparently it says something when you open it… I didn’t hear it ‘cos I had the sound off… something for you to discover if you buy the shoes 😉

Working with Julie was lovely. I have enjoyed all the photographers I’ve worked with so far, and they all have their different styles. Some like to be very quiet and concentrate; others like to chat; Julie is of the latter type. So we talked about life and love and art… it was a very nice time.

The jewelry is from Lazuri… this stuff is *amazing*! It’s texture change so you can have many different color combinations, and you can also change the configuration of the jewelry for a different look.

Love this hair from D!va! It had just the right color and dramatic flair I was looking for. And of course here you can see the detail of Julie’s wonderful peacock tattoo…

I’ll have some more for you soon… a pre-summer look, and some outfits for the Allure show I was in this weekend. Enjoy your week!

a very ribbon


“I love it but… I don’t know about that yellow ribbon… I want to take it off” I said.

My wise friend said, “But it adds color. I like it!”

“Oh, okay” I said, not really convinced. But when you receive something to style for a magazine shoot, you go with it. A nice challenge! 

I started to think about that ribbon. The swimsuit is lovely, sort of a leopard print with a soft blush suffusing it, a sexy flush. It would be just fine without that ribbon. But there it is.

And then it occurred to me… Shakespeare’s plays, unlike modern plays, don’t have a lot of stage direction. In modern plays, stage direction can help you understand what’s going on. But with Shakespeare, you have to read and study the play to get your stage direction and clues to your character and the story, the emotional truth behind the words. Once you understand those cues and clues, creating the character can be much easier; you know better what choices to make. And the yellow ribbon in my swimsuit was my styling cue. Made it very easy!

I kinda dig the yellow ribbon now…

vanity and perfectionism


So I received this skin to blog. It’s a pretty nice one! Vanity from 7 Deadly S[k]ins. I thought about wearing clothing with it but I really wanted to show it well… so you get a semi-nude of (sort of) me. 🙂

I decided to wear the skin over my shape – it comes with its own but seems to work really well with mine. Added Lolas ‘cos they look awesome 😀

The title is about how long it took me to bring you this – I wanted to get it just right. Vanity definitely inspired perfectionism… not necessarily a bad thing.
