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....
