Hey guys! I am wrapped up in a new project and didn’t have much time to write you online, so please, accept my apologies! 🙂 However, thank you for all the support for my Etsy store! I’m creating new pieces when I have some free time and also, new magic review is coming up soon! Have a great week and shoot me a “hello” when you have the time! XOXO
Do you still have some pieces in your wardrobe that you just simply cannot part with? Well, for me, I have a number of these baggy pants, that I always used (and sometimes I’m still using) for backstage, during load-in and load-out of the theater, and for rehearsals. Luckily, I have now other people to unload the trucks of magic goods, but I still love these “work pants” and I cannot part with them.
I hardly, (aka. never) shop at Old Navy, but I’m happy that I did snatch all these pants (in every possible color) a few years ago! 🙂
It was a quick idea, to just grab these pair of pants for the photo-shoot, and therefore have them be featured. They worked so hard with me over the years, I believe they deserve a hooray! 😀
Hope you had a great week and have the chance to enjoy this beautiful weather! xo
You might have seen me on stage wearing this costume, which was one of my first crafty projects when I moved to Vegas. The half silver beads sewn onto the bra are vintage finds and there are large glass beads sewn onto the bottom. I made 4 sets, and each included a feathered head-dress and rhinestone chokers as well.
I find it funny sometimes, how some people can get offended by showgirl costumes. To me, it’s exactly the same as a bathing suit, minus the rhinestones 🙂
I’m not sure if I would ever wear this on stage again, but I loved this photoshoot, brought back lots of fun memories.
PS: I’m wearing a very high quality push-up bra and makeup, therefore, I don’t endorse implants and whatever else girls are injecting into themselves these days.
I am excited to share that a new bracelet style has made it into my store today! I’ve been working on this design for a while now, and I’m happy to finally release this new style! Inspired by the romantic beauty of spring weddings, each of these floral hand pieces are perfect for special days like these, or brunch with the girls, a night out or just to have something delicate to show off while you are out and about! 🙂
The carefully hand sewn fabric feels invisible and comfortable to wear throughout the day.
Currently, 3 different styles of beads are completing these beautiful floral pieces: Czech Glass beads, Japanese Glass and 22 Karat Miyuki Japanese Glass.
A quick note on quality and prices: Japanese beads are carefully hand created, and are amazingly uniform in shape, brilliance and quality (always exceptional). Please don’t confuse them with China or Vietnam made beads, (the kind you will find in most department stores for bargain prices) Those are also beautiful in their own way, but made differently. Cheaper beads can vary in size, and coloring can wear off over time. Japanese Miyuki is the superstar of seed beads, if you ask me. 🙂
When I created this style, I wanted to make sure that it’s not a “one size fits all”! I want every piece to be made for the one who purchased this and to fit snug, no matter how hard the wind blows or how wild you might be dancing, so make sure you “request a custom order” if the available size doesn’t fit you perfectly!

The heavy is the root of the light.
The unmoved is the source of all movement.
Thus the Master travels all day
without leaving home.
However splendid the views,
she stays serenely in herself.
If you want to learn how to govern,
avoid being clever or rich.
The simplest pattern is the clearest.
Content with an ordinary life,
you can show all people the way
back to their own true nature.
– Lao Tzu
Empty yourself of everything.
Let the mind rest at peace.
The ten thousand things rise and fall while the Self watches their return.
They grow and flourish and then return to the source.
Returning to the source is stillness, which is the way of nature.
– Lao Tzu
“The smell of moist earth and lilacs hung in the air like wisps of the past and hints of the future.” Margaret Millar
