Take photos just before sunset and the film grain appears free of charge.

Autumn Aspirations

Just a few snaps of an outfit I wore back in October to visit the Denver Botanical Gardens with my parents. This dress is a favorite and must get worn at least once every autumn, becuase this print is the beeeeest ever. I paired it with a striped plasticflex handbag, green pumps from American Duchess, and some antique brass lantern charm earrings. 

Wishing everyone a happy December! I'm busy as ever and moving slower than usual too, as my mind seems to want to shut off and hibernate until the end of the year, but it just won't do. I simply must cut out my 1890's bodice tonight!!

November Noir


A beaded 1940's suit jacket in the woods. The day after this I came down with a cold and haven't been glamorous since. Sadly most of the leaves have fallen now too.

The Carmine Gown


Not exactly sure why these photographs came out so blurry...but let's just say it was an "antique" look I was, uh, going for on purpose. This is the quilting cotton bustle gown I made recently and I am very happy with how it came together. I'd love to wear it to hand out candy on Halloween, because let's face it, my end goal is to be the creepy lady that owns the big haunted house at the end of the road. Dress for the job you want.

Things are a bit rough behind the scenes at present, with my little kitty ill on top of my packed schedule before I leave on this long planned trip. Ever since I learned I would be vaccinated this year, I had been planning a grand adventure to look forward to, but that was all before I knew Cleo was going to get so sick and that I very well may be missing her last few weeks. Hotels are all booked, and one of my best friends is meeting me in Palm Springs which means her flights are all booked, and really it would be both expensive and heartbreaking to cancel my trip. And it's also equally heartbreaking to leave my tiny Cleo behind. It's a lose lose, and nothing I do will heal her (her bladder is mostly tumor, she's 16, this type of cat cancer is rare and doesn't usually respond to treatment). I have never lost a pet like this before, and it hurts. I should be super excited for my trip, and I was, until my littlest friend started to fade away fast. My life goes on, but I've had Cleo sitting on my lap every night for over a decade, and as someone who's already a little lonely, this is going to flat out suck.

So it's nearly fall, the best of seasons, and I've got costumes on the cutting table and an adventure on the horizon, but I'm gloomy in the worst of ways as I say an, ultimately far too short, long goodbye.
