Inspiration Collage

Well, I'm preparing for a big trip so I haven't put any energy into my clothing.  But, I'd like to show you the back wall of my desk.  I had some fun cutting out magazine pictures that inspired me for Fall.  Look at this:
Love all the rich textures.

Yay! Animal prints.

Yummy bright colors.

And I haven't forgot about my Apron Giveaway.  I will choose the winner tomorrow so you still have some time to enter or refer more friends!
Good night. :)

Time for..... LEOPARDY!

Here I am cleaning out the old motorhome so my Pop can sell it.  The other day, David said that my leopard print hat looked awful with my magenta silk dress.  Well, I explained to him that I wear animal prints as if they were neutrals.  If Betsey Johnson can do it, then so can I.  See!  (I don't know if my conservative guy is gonna go for that argument.)
The outfit I wore above, reminds me of this cute little guy that I bought for another cute little guy's birthday.  My little friend, Nathan, was so excited to get a Canadian coin in the mail from his grandparents so I told him I'd get him a bank to put his money in.
In the meantime, I'm working on duplicating this dress for a client, also known as my friend, Jen.  
She picked out a nice blue and gray large flower print and thankfully agreed to model it for us after I complete it. Yay!

Beefing Up

I've been working on beefing up my etsy store, Stormybelle Statement Shoes with some much needed inventory. Hee (embarassed smirk).  I'm focusing on special event shoes for Weddings, Parties, Dances, Costume Balls, and other unknown shindigs you might be attending!  They are all designed and hand-embellished by me and made to last.  Just right for other shoe fanatics, like me. Here are pics of the new ones so far:

"O, Pioneers!"

these are a work in progress

Thanks for looking!  Whew, so many projects, so little time.

"The Farm Theotime"

I read this "Prix Renaudot", award-winning book right after high school and loved it.  It's  an english translation of a book by Henri Bosco about the farm life in rural Provence.  I first fell in love with the cover, which is my favorite shade of magenta.  But the story leaves you with a quiet sense of the beauty of living from the earth. "Green Acres, is the place for me!"  I also have a romantic view of another agrarian culture; Mexico.  That is where I bought this beloved blouse.  If you ever go to Mexico, bring back a beautiful piece of traditional clothing or a striped blanket or pottery.  For me, those charming trinkets become more endearing over time.
