Inspiration & Sneak Peek Into my Dressing Room

I've been slammed since I last wrote on here and I'm kicking myself for all the catching up I now have to do. I've been ripping and running with my brother who was in town visiting. It was great but now life is back to normal--full of cooking, food writing, photographing that food, editing, etc... And somehow find time to snap pics of the fashionable element that makes up the sane part of my intellect. 

I was sitting at my desk just about an hour ago and quickly jumped out of my chair  to snap pics of my dressing room. I needed to find some serious inspiration! I was feeling so blah and totally overwhelmed with the amount of work I have to do. 

My dressing room is my fun place. In fact, it's the fun place all my girlfriends love entering.  Eventually I'll do a full out photoshoot in there--because it really is deserving. But, in the meantime, enjoy some images of the room that inspires me, where all worries are squabbled, all dreams are reality, all hats are fabulous and all shoes are fancy! 

In no particular order of preference.... 

Gold earrings I designed and had a local designer make. Luuuuurve them! 
F21 feather and net hair clip. 
"Crowns" book written by an old friend of mine, a renowned photographer.
Assortment of pearls by C.B. Herrera, namely Swarovski pearl necklace.
Bowl of chunky cuffs and bracelets.
Shoe cubby with bracelets and peacock feathers. 
Vintage pillbox hat found in Philly.
Marc Jacobs and Dolce & Gabbana pumps--two of my faves.
Side view of my garment rack holding vintage B So Chic! inventory.
Vintage mink stoles.
My mom at the tender age of 17 back in Cuba. In the smaller frame in front is moi at 14 months in Cuba as well. How cute, right! 

Enjoy, lovelies!
