I did this sketch for my niece's birthday card. There is something about it that just screams "wild abandon"...I'm sure my sister will love that. I see her wearing it on an adventure in Italy. She is dancing (years from now) in the Piazza Navona drunk on vino, laughter and love...her own private Roman Holiday!

Let's be honest...summertime equals music and concerts and I can't think of anything more fun then singing and dancing my heart out with 25000 strangers. Maybe we should let musicians rule the world...love, unity and harmony....there's a Utopia to live for!
And what does one wear to such an event...a body suit with mesh details and silk cuffed walking shorts with draped pockets of course!
"Happy happy oh my friend(s)"

So anyone that knows me knows that I love James Bond. I have been literally counting the days until they release the new theme song...waiting to find out who sings it is almost as good as the anticipation of Christmas morning. A good James Bond movie is like a great martini… It takes all the ingredients stirred (not shaken) together to make the perfect film. And one of these key elements is the Bond Girl. Here is my take...and probably not my last...on her.
The music swells, the crowd parts and there at the entrance to the casino, she appears. In fitted satin with a chiffon overlay and hand beaded sleeve and decolletaged....she's beautiful...mysterious....even dangerous...she is 007 perfection.

When you're down in troubles
And you need some love and care
And nothing, nothing is going right
Close your eyes and think of me
And soon I will be there
To brighten up even your darkest night
You just call out my name
And you know wherever I am
I'll come running to see you again
Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you got to do is call
And I'll be there
Yes I will
You've got a friend
- Carole King
Friendship equals silk charmuese polka dots. :)

Happy New Year! It's been a bit of a gap since entries...and in the spirit of resolutions and new beginnings, I'm gonna give myself a break and say "that's ok!"
I have always found resolutions kinda funny. I use to make them "wrong". I thought if you were truly committed to something different why did you have to wait for the new year and declare it with the masses? Safety in numbers perhaps?
Well, that was rather arrogant of me. Truth is, if someone waits to use Jan 1 as a launching pad to a new beginning, who am I to judge. Deciding to make a change can be hard enough without having others (or ourselves) doubt our intentions.
Whatever the cause, be it the need for transformation or Baby New Year himself, I say go for it...declare your resolution and don't let the syncs, myself included, weigh you down. Here's to an amazing 2015 for us all!!!
And let this cotton, silk and chiffon dress with its asymmetrical hemline inspire all your dreams. (Too much? Who cares...it's the New Year!)
