CHIC-A-BOOM ...
~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."
~Claudia Byrdine

~ CHANEL ~ Classics Re-Presented



A long tapered skirt fringed with layers of marabou fringe, topped with a stunning slender black jacket featuring slightly padded shoulders. What an exquisite line.

A black silk chiffon evening gown embellished with golden embroidered wheat grain florets.
- I question the choice of brown-toed black spectator slings. Gold strappy sandals would certainly be lovely.


This fresh little bow-tied blouse [which may be the same one seen peeking from the slender black jacket in the second photo] is paired with a very "Natasha Fatale" hourglass skirt with separate train. The cut of the skirt has naughty written all over it whilst the blouse says sweet little girl.


A fitted white vest emphasizes the flared evening pants with a tuxedo tail.
The long gloves are like arm hosery. I covet them.



Again, wheat detailed fabric. A short cocktail dress in robin egg blue.


I love humor in design, and I adore this sleek body fitting gown with wide black tie.

Boy suit with pearls... so Coco.
