My first Treasury - score!

Army shirt
Buy Now 
Woohoo............I got featured in an Etsy Treasury for the first time. Thanks to Sudrishta Shop who curated this awesome treasury of all things Khaki - my favorite color! 

Sudrishta sells beautiful knitted bags - do pop over to check out their handmade creations.

Treasuries are pretty awesome in the sense that they give you great exposure in the Etsy world and increase traffic to your shop. I gotta make time to curate a couple myself - thinking of doing a Bohemian themed one - will post it here when I do it.

Bella has arrived

My assistants and  our dog Coach 

After much searching for a dress form, the husband (who can find just about anything online) found this place called 'Recycled Displays' in Toronto and we found 'BELLA' there.

Instead of a dress form I opted for a mannequin as it has the benefit of arms and legs. Now this place Recylced Displays was a treasure trove - and mad thrifters that we are - we went around the whole warehouse just ogling. They had tons of mannequins (of all kinds - silver ones, gold ones, embroidered ones), dress forms, hanging forms, etc etc.......turns out they also rent out props to TV series like Rookie Blue, Sherlock Holmes, etc - they had mad stuff! mad stuff I say! vintage typewriters, cash tellers with those beautiful raised keys, vintage clothing, giant horses, vintage mini cars, doctors carry cases (now this I wanted to steal shhhhhhhhh), shelf upon shelf of beautiful things lost in the mess of that warehouse - I'm sure they have an inventory system but what a thrill it would be to rummage through it all! miles and miles of joy...............

So back to topic - yes I finally got my mannequin and my daughters named her 'Bella' aptly (who isn't a Twilight fan now!?) and I got to work with trying out the clothes and camera work....will post more pics of the warehouse later tonight!

Golden Globes 2012 Favorite dress

Evan Rachel Wood
Golden Globes 2012
So many award shows to keep up with.............my favorite dress from the Golden Globes was this Gucci gown worn by Evan Rachel Wood (she's only 24 yrs eh!?) it was a beautiful creation that started of with sequins, graduated into fish scales and then cascaded into feathers. Such a myriad of beautiful colors - that green, black, grey metallic mix...............ethereal......just ethereal.

Best Crochet skirt ever

via Stockholm Street Style 
Who doesn't love a pretty crochet skirt - she has paired it with unusual things but it works...sure it works for her! I would probably don it with a white cami and low slung brown thin belt. Yes and I would keep the scarf. Either ways its a beautiful skirt on a pretty lady.
