Dear Darling Followers,

I am sorry I haven’t posted much lately… I’m moving in with my boyfriend (yay!) and had to leave my old job (Booooh bad bosses) and start a new part time job (yay! more money, only 3 long days a week, I get benefits… yahoo!) and move the office I had JUST MOVED INTO the old job OUT and into a new space (yay for theatre connections!)

So I haven’t posted lately. I’m essentially moving 3 places at once, all while trying to learn a new job! 

Thank you for your patience, and I SWEAR next week will return to posting inspiration, photos of new work, processes of SUPER new work, oh… and…

I’ve thought of changing the name to Rose Tinted Boutique… Any Thoughts?

Ñ This may be my favorite photo from Justine Johnson Photography… Ever.
This is Cora, a 1920s style Black and Red Lace Couture Halloween Alternative Wedding Gown. I took a vintage shawl, a beaded collar, and a vintage slip and stitched them together to make this STUNNING creation. If I were having a Halloween wedding or a glamorous 20’s party, I would keep it all to myself!
This gown was inspired by the glamour and elegance of miss Dita Von Teese.
