My incredible Sister

All of us sibs have been raised with an almost maniacal work ethics.  I want to give a special shout out to my next sister right after me 

She is a true phenomenal woman. 

She runs her own dance company, (the only one of us kids to start her own business), manages and teaches in a dance studio, performs at places like Kennedy Center, gives individualized personal fitness traing (I'd proberly last one week) and is successful ias a single mom to 3 children (dad drifts in an out of the picture).  This is one my favorite pics of her performing.

Renewing our Vows

So the hubby and I are facing some pretty steep challenges and I suggested renewing our vows.  Just to remind ourselves and others that our love for each other can weather any storm.  We had planned to do it on our 10th wedding anniversary then our 15th and now somehow time has slipped away from us.  It will of course be Egyptian themed and here are some things I found on line.  Unfortunately, I don't think any of these are for sale in the state of Georgia.
I did find this adorable Temperley London dress, but it's a 2013 dress.  Probably expensive as heck, but maybe not

Celebrating you, Marilyn! Rest in Peace

This week would have been the birthday of one the first in a long line of man-made icons.  Sometimes I think she was the first in the line that leads to the Kim Kardashians of today.  Some tell me that she was different.  That she was special.  What ever we each think of her, we have to admit that she is now a part of Americana.  Just like Kim Khardasian.

Fashion Illustration for children!!!

As you all know, I am obsessed with the art of fashion illustrationists.  Well, I've just discovered illustrationists that specialize in children's fashion.
This one is SO cute!!

Iconic Movie Costumes

The fashion institute of Costume Design has declared that the white halter dress worn by Marylin Monroe in the movie "The Seven Year Itch" is the most iconic costume from a movie.

In second and third place was Olivia Newton John' s back skin tight costume from "Grease" and Jusy Garland's Red Ruby slippers worn in "The Wizard of Oz".

I'm very glad some shoes made in the top three!!!!

Fashion illustrationists

Fashion illustrationists are artists in their own right. A few are self taught but most went to institutions like Central St. Martins to learn not only drawing but the art of design to incorporate into their own art. They are highly sought after by fashion magazines for their sketches.  My favorites are Hayden Williams, Arturo Elena, Nuno Da Costa and Inslee Haynes. 

I hope to post images and bios of these 4 over the next few days!!!
