Aristocratic Re-dress

Is it redress or re-dress??  Could not come up with a consensus so I just published anyway.  This Agnes is stunning!  The re-dressing ( again…not sure if I am using the right spelling) potential is high for this one.  She can go casual chic or uptown haute couture very easily.  She is very much the Baroness here.  I need to get her a little 1/6 Louis Vuitton passport cover .Smile









Presenting at the Oscars

I love watching the Oscars.  Well…mostly I just like watching the red carpet and posting my picks and pans after.  Last year I had a lot of fun and success with my “Getting ready for the Oscars” photo.  See all the information about this photo here.

Mattel had just released this new wardrobe piece and I was anxious to use it.  In my head, Barbie was getting ready to go to the Oscars as a possible recipient.  Because she was one of the contenders for the gold statue, she needed to be in a drop dead gown.  The story continued in my head that she went on to win the Oscar.  That means that this year, she will be presenting the Oscar for the award she won last year.

The Lady in Red: Part One

Photography, in my opinion, is just like any other art form.  Some days you can be inspired and others….nothin’.  When it comes to photographing my collection, this happens to me all the time.  Sometimes, I will be inspired by something that can fuel ideas for sets of shoots that will keep me in blogging material for a couple of weeks.  I love it when that happens!  I was inspired recently by one prop and a treasure trove of Jakki Peters hats that I picked up at the recent Fashion Royalty Convention.  The material that came out of those shoots has become some of my favorite shots for the entire year.  Hope you enjoy this series which I call….The Lady in Red.
