Pearls are a Girl’s Best Friend

I don’t like diamonds.

I know, I know. *GASP!*  Not really sure why. But I do love pearls. 😀


What type of pearls do you like best? I’m in love with ivory toned watercolor pearls.

Put on your Snazzy Hat

Tito & YayaIt’s been a bit since the last post.

I’ve been working 50-60 hour weeks what with 2 jobs and trying to keep up with college credits. Burn out was inevitable!

And then, this past week my grandmother passed away. It felt…odd. So lonely, yet unreal. I still cannot fathom the implications of never seeing her again within this lifetime. I shan’t bore you with sentimental descriptions of her beauty or stories of her one true love.

Instead, I want to tell you how she lived a remarkably long life (90 years), and overcame a frightful youth. In her early 20’s she ran away from her family and moved to a new city to start a new life. She was brave. Stubborn. Opinionated.

On the day of her funeral, my grandfather wrote her a letter. I have taken the liberty to quote from it…


“…Sweetheart, hon, toots,

I loved,

You loved,

We loved,

And we will always love each other…”

But there is one thing I will always remember of grandma. She was not afraid of bold colors or patterns. Heaven forbid old age stop her from wearing what she pleased!

As is usually the case, I have  turned to artistic expression for a small measure of comfort. Grandma was not one for hats per say, but color, yes. I know she would have enjoyed this showcase as much as I did.

For after all, one is never too old, too young, too tall, too small for a snazzy hat. Enjoy, loves.

25 Inspirational Fashion Sketches

Hello lovely dolls and handsome gents that may happen to peruse this blog !!

I’ve always enjoyed looking at both vintage and modern fashion sketches/illustrations.  I always like the ones that had a Barbie look to them the best, for some reason. haha 😉  And if it has swirls and lace, I am one happy girl !

( I uploaded some designer sketches from Pinterest and designers like Ellie Sab and Bob Mackie. None of the designs are mine, and no copyright infringement intended. )

Hope you enjoy this as much as I did… 😀
