" Prettiest pastels! "

As the wedding season gets under way, my mind is drawn to spring pastel shades. The colours don't need to be washed out and old fashioned. Instead think of dusky vintage colours such as teal, coral and rose, left out to dry in the sun for too long! Here's a selection of my warm pastels, available to buy in my folksy and etsy shops. The garters are in my etsy shop.

" Yay for moo cards!! "

I have to show off my fabulous "free" moo cards. I'm so pleased with their tiny images that I can hardly bear to part with them. I will however, be using them as tags for my sold items!

" Talulahblue photoshoot!! "

Woohoo, at last the pics have come through from the latest "talulahblue" photo shoot!!
I have to say, they are all we could have hoped for !!
it was great fun getting all the props and "attire" ready for our models, Chrys and Laura. As always, we are promoting burlesque as contemporary, fun entertainment and a great way to spend an evening with friends.

" It's all black & white "

There's a lot of pressure at this time of year to look fashionable, cool and confident, during the wedding, proms and races season. Black and white are always a safe combo to choose, if you're unsure about looking more " Widow Twanky " and less " Mother of the bride!" Okay, so your event is a friend's barbecue, but you still want to look like you've made an effort, without trying too hard. Try adding a couple of black and white accessories, to sharpen your look. Here are a few ideas to consider, from a dinky cocktail hat, bunny ears for a prom queen, to corsage headband for an updated "day at the races". All items available in my on-line boutiques.
