Princess in a Crown of Skulls

1-skull-princess-sm

There are so many wonderful things in the February BishBox that you really should be tempted to sign up for the March edition. The items are a bit edgier, a bit hipper than other subscription boxes. But the addition of the Bish crown from Astralia makes the hippest chick royalty.

And she plucked up the crown of skulls, placed it on her head at a jaunty angle, and became a princess.

The end.

Role Model

1 Role Model

I don’t quite have the stance down pat, but I’m working on it! As a role model for posture, Miss Dress Form is perfection.

I mentioned a couple of days ago I seem to be carrying a mannequin theme lately. It honestly hasn’t been a considered idea; it has just happened. I love pulling items out of my inventory, scattering them, taking some back, moving others around, digging for another gem or two. Or six. Or eighteen.

I have several dress forms in my treasure trove (surprise, surprise!), but this one from Apple Fall has to be my favourite. It actually reminded me a bit of the frock I’m wearing from Apple May Designs. The dress comes in four colours, with the pink I am wearing on sale for 50L for a limited time at the main store. What a bargain!

I spent two hours setting up this room for a client shoot. She was a no-show. So instead of getting upset, I decided to use it myself.

How’s that for being a role model for fashion, economics and resourcefulness all in one post? 😉

Music of the Night

Night Music_0262

Slowly, gently night unfurls it’s splendour
Grasp it, sense it, tremulous and tender
Turn your face away from the garish light of day
Turn your thoughts away from cold unfeeling light
And listen to the music of the night

~From Phantom Of The Opera – Music Of The Night Lyrics

Seductive, dark, haunting. The music of the night will capture your heart and lead you to love…or endanger your soul.

Floating, falling, sweet intoxication
Touch me, trust me, savour each sensation
Let the dream begin, let your darker side give in
To the power of the music that I write
The power of the music of the night

Feel the music of the night…

You alone can make my song take flight
Help me make the music of the night
