glamour is what I sell, it’s my stock in trade.

a short and sweet post for this holiday weekend.

all of the fashion world is in a tizzy over this evening’s golden globe awards. who is wearing who? is nude the new black? will it be classic hollywood glamour or ethereal beauty? and that’s just the clothing! makeup, hair, jewels – oh my.

based on today’s mood, i am completely enamored with how breathtaking miss alexa looks in this favorite photo of mine. the endless sea of lavender tulle, decadently crafted corset and natural, breezy up do are the perfect opposites. it is probably less golden globes and more met costume gala……but a showstopper nonetheless.

i’m wishing and hoping a few lovely ladies will grace the red carpet and take my breath away like this photo did. it is those rare moments when my love affair with fashion is at its best.

here’s to all the pretty things.
