As if we ever moved past this…

And here is some proof that this industry is just one big broken record.

Stuck on repeat.

And I am so okay with this song.

Remember when…

You are so welcome. This was way too much fun. So many laughs. And at one point I think I was crying, and rolling on the ground at the thought of Tomogatchi’s and Nano Pet’s…

Musings

Most every creative person has a muse at some point or another.  Sometimes its a person, sometimes a particular place, or even an inanimate object, just something that inspires.  I have always found a muse in different models, here are some of my favorite shots of some of my past muses and introducing my new one.  Nothing like an afternoon of flipping through old magazines being reminded why you love fashion.

Here she is, my new muse.  I found this picture in a vintage store and stopped dead in my tracks.  I knew had to make this lady a part of my life so I immediately purchased the print.  I’ve named her Ethel.  She is one bad-ass bitch who doesn’t take guff from anyone and I treasure her.  Lord only knows the stories she could tell.  I like to think she carries a derringer in her clutch alongside an extra set of pearls.  Thanks Ethel for continuing to inspire me.
