~an eccentric woman with extraordinarily memorable, often misunderstood but unmistakably distinctive style.


"It is my intent to showcase that which I consider wearable art.
Clothing that is whimsical, dramatic, avant-garde and on the
cutting edge of design - as seen through my eyes.
Brilliance and madness are interchangeable.
This is my style inspiration. I invite you into my world."

TOY SOLDIER ~ Playing dressup with Ashley Smith - Part II

Epaulets, YAY!

Ashley Smith takes a spin at a beauty and jewelry story for Vogue Italia "Gioiello".
Photographed by David Dunan, Ashley wearing military inspired designs from labels such as
D&G, Etro and Others. Fashion Editor: Giovanna Battaglia.

A spray of deep red blush feathers high atop a brimmed hat with bejeweled broaches around it’s band ~ala: her majesty the majorette~

The detail of the belt is incredible. This toy soldier "fit" is

marvelous…. simply marvelous.


Jewels everywhere... neclaces, broaches and
The immense ring on her left hand is to die for!

Oh where to start. Feathers as hair – wonderful.

Wrapped in strands and strands of pearls

buttons fringed with chains – want want want!!

Joan Crawford-esque shouldered black jacket with

Red leather pants to match her red feather bangs, now that, is accessorizing
