Wardrobe project: Beaded dress

Apr 10, 2009 in Wardrobe Project

I took these photos because I was thinking of selling this dress. It’s one of my most beautiful dresses and definitely the most intricate one, but I had only used it once since it was just too big for me. The beading makes it close to impossible to take in without removing beads so I thought it might be time to let it go.

When I was taking these photos I noticed that it suddenly fits me perfectly, which makes me happy both because I can wear the dress and because it means I’m actually not quite as skinny as I was a couple of years ago! I don’t think I will be selling it now.

Dress: Ebay. The brand is Jack Bryant.
Tights: Gift from Lisis.
Shoes: Gift from Henrik.

Bullet bras on Etsy

Mar 28, 2009

When I was searching for the perfect bullet bra I ordered a few before I found one that actually fit me. I just put two of those up on my Etsy store, one that was too small and one that was too big.

They’re really beautiful, both from the 60s, in their original packaging and (I believe) completely unused. Click the picture to go to my Etsy store.

Etsy!

I used to have an Etsy store, but when they wouldn’t accept my new credit card it was suspended and has been so for months. Now they’re finally accepting PayPal so my store is open again!

I will be selling things I’ve made other than paintings and drawings, like dolls and perhaps some clothing items. I’m also planning to sell some vintage clothing that doesn’t fit me. I will be adding more items over the next week so keep checking back if you’re interested!

(By the way, has anyone noticed what happens when you mouse over my blog header?)

Dressing gown

Mar 23, 2009

Last week Henrik surprised me with this dressing gown that has been on my wish list for a while. To me it’s just the perfect dressing gown and I wear it almost all the time. I didn’t think I would ever find such a perfect dressing gown that wasn’t vintage.

Anyway, it came with two 10% off discount codes, and since I’m not planning on buying anything else from the site, Sexy Panties and Naughty Knickers, I thought I’d give out the codes here on the blog. Just leave a comment on this post saying you want one, and I’ll randomly select two people who get the codes, around noon CET this Friday, March 27.
