Thank you!

This is a thank you to all the people who helped me get my collection finished and my lil' shop up and running!

Lorax hats

I wanted some amusing lil' hats for the collection so dearest Piroska made these Lorax hats. Infused with Dr. Seuss noodle-ish-ness they are made to perch on the side of one's head.

Open that shop

 Last Friday I opened the shop. Sophie (Piroska) made the Lorax hat for me, thank goodness, because for the first time ever I didn't have time to work out my own outfit. 
 Hopefully Jo Duck will shoot me a look book so I can show what the collection looks like.
They started out all puritan nun and ended up all Agent 99 meets Wednesday Adams & Prunella Scales in Fawlty Towers.

Reticule

So I've started making these little bags to sell. They seem to fit all I need, my phone, keys, mirror, two lipsticks, purse and card holder. Reticule is a French 18th century word for little bag.

The women we wanted to look like

I bought this book second hand today for $15. My mother has it and when I was little I'd pour over this book drinking in all the glamorous ladies like Hedy Lamar, Loulou de la Falaise, Lady Diana Cooper and Wallace Simpson. There are amazing stories of these womens extravagant lifestyles. I'll give you some examples as I re-read it.
