"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."

DECORATING {YOURSELF} FOR THE HOLIDAYS

My favorite part of the holiday is the chance to decorate myself. (Who am I kidding ... "Self Ornamentation" is my favorite part of each and every day)
The theme here seems to be Frida Kahlo as Dominatrix.
Fur, leather, metal cuffs & flora.

This veiled, giant red bloom of a hat is gorgeous and so festive.


A hat of knotted reeds and a vest of bits and fox and Tibetan lamb
a skirt embellished with mother-of-pearl disks replicated in
bangles of hammered metal.

I love love love this red outfit! I have this hat in white with grey tips.
This makes me want to dye it red. And look at wonderful ankle strap heels.
Yummy!

One of my favorite 70's trends. High wasted wide legged
(back in the day they were called "Elephant Pants")
I love winter white
Dots for days. Beautiful neck baubles and fab fur booties.

Black quilted jumpsuit, three quarter length sleeve mohair
sweater/jacket and leather gloves.
Stunning necklace and bracelets. All topped by a dramatic white,
bandage tied scarf finished with white silk flowers.
Zip up girl, it's cold outside!

Adore this look from head to toe.


A red petaled head wreath complimented by dress,
gloves and hose of the same color.
