Where there's manure, there's a pony !

Ever the optimist {and annoyingly to some, I might add}, when life shovels up clods that are on the nose, I will always look for the bright side ~ even if I have to dig around a bit to find it.   Call me stubborn and pass the Kate Spade.

Today's illustration finds us languishing in an aqua vision of fluffiness on a tufted purple velvet ottoman in a bucolic corner of countryside ~ as you do.  I think there's a certain romance to being barefooted and impractical.  How about you?  And on that note ...

Happy Fashionable Friday to you !

Fashion & Fluffballs Friday : I Dream of Jean-y

10.2.17

I'm not sure we could squoosh ourselves into Jeannie's bottle, but we can aspire to some Jeannie-esque hair.

When I was little {littler}, I adored I Dream of Jeannie.  My most adored PJs were pink and white spotted, with a top akin to hers.  If I could find her harem-styled outfit for a fancy dress costume today, I'd still want to take it for a spin ~ albeit with a diaphanous scarf draped strategically where a six pack will never be.

For lounging around in today's illustration, however, I've chosen something muffin-top friendly plus boyfriend jeans, being far more conducive to kitty climbing than harem pants.  The very thought makes my eyes water.  Aieee!  And on that note ....

Happy Fashion & Fluffballs Friday to you !

If you're longing to shake your booty in Mykonos, today's Ode to a Grecian Yearn illustration is for you.

We'll wear our skirts long and our heels low.  Barefoot is not recommended in case of plate smashing, but there's always someone willing to throw caution to the wind. Better that than confetti.  And on that note ...

Happy Fashionable Friday to you !

Beehiving like Brigitte Bardot takes a bigger bounty of locks than I presently have in my custody.

But today's illustration allows me the liberty of plumping them up without resorting to a hairpiece.   Our perch in Paris has a fine Eiffel Tower view when we've whipped out our compacts and are powdering our noses. Or we can wriggle into reverse if our fluffiness can be negotiated and our vertigo can be shelved.  I'll leave the choice up to you!  And on that note ...

Happy Fluffy Francophile Fashionable Friday to you !

Fashionable Friday : Going Dotty Over Vintage Fashion

Fear not, this fur is faux.   Thankfully when illustrating, the case is always so.

In a bid to disappear from the heat into a snowy wonderland, I was about to post one of my Paris carousel illustrations from several years ago and changed my mind.  Sorry if I've just disappointed you.  It's somewhat like saying, "I saw a majestic bunch of flowers at the markets that were so 'You'!  Here's a box of champagne truffles... I hope you like them."  My bad.

Nonetheless, here we are, with a something vastly different from the highly detailed and delicate work embodied in that gilt-edged and pastel-encrusted carousel, tiny enough to fit on a sheet of A4.   You could take this vintage ensemble for a spin on one of those winter-clad horsies and be snug as a bug in a rug.  Oh, all right then.  Go take a peek.  Don't say I never give you anything.  Hang on ... do say I always give you something?  Curse you, double negatives, and pass the hip flask of brandy. And on that note ...

Happy Fashionable Friday to you !

Francophile Friday : Taffeta Tango in Paris

 Today's illustration lends itself to a tango overlooking the rooftops of Paris. 

A gorgeous taffeta confection might impede our steps but would hide a multitude of footwork sins all the while. 

This vintage gown might possibly be Dior.  There was no credit on the photo from which I drew inspiration, so if you know, I'm all ears.  Well, actually, my ears are rather petite.  In proportion, I would say.  Anyhoo, what I do know for sure is this gown is a beauty.  I hear several arrondissements are vying to become its postcode of residence.  They might have to take a number.  And on that note ...

Happy Francophile Friday to you !
