I would love to pop in and work with you all! I think I'm a bit far away though. I said WOW when I saw your bag, it's fantastic. I also adore those spats, they're just mad, I love them. And your dog too, what a sad face!

Sara said...

Oh, how I'd love to visit your shoppe; so many fabulous things! I ADORE your bag..and the shoes and spats are so fantastic. Thanks for your sweet comments. :D

Melanie said...

You must be kidding! Those are the most awesome spats I have ever ever seen! They are incredible. Now I must run out and try to make some inferior ones.
Your outfit is an inspiration. The handbag, crinoline, the works. Thanks so much. All of these style pieces are gorgeous.

When one is lucky enough to have bucket loads of creative energy and imagination like yourself, one is never too long in the tooth for a fantasy in my opinion.
The "best do before" malarkey may well be the staple view of the majority, who sadly let their childlike enthusiasm for getting dressed die in their late teens or early twenties.
I love how much thought you put into each and every one of your fabulous ensembles & your brilliant attention to detail...you ROCK!

I'd love to work you too, but I'm so faraway! I adore your shop, its style, philosophy and the research behind every item!!
I like children fairytales and imagination too, I live surrounded by it and I'm glad to have two little daughters to remind me how beautiful is to keep on dreaming!
Your outfit is perfect in every detail and I love the crinoline skirt, the headpiece and your stunning floral spats!

This outfit of yours makes my heart skip beats, I adore the shoes and all your ruffle bits, that purse and your pups! You are a feast for the eyes, as are all these unique handmade treasures at your shop. Your customers are as colorful and stylish as you are. What a wonderful world you have created, all of you!

If you want to be Little Red Riding Hood, then why not? And I love the idea of you attacking the wolf! You look amazing, those spats are crazily good!
Your shop looks so inspiring, the headpieces are divine, as is that spectacular wedding dress. xxxx

Great opening photo, and that bag is just perfect!

OMG, I'm slightly palpitating over this magnificence!!!! WOW WOW WOW!!

Jet Kuhn said...

Oh your outfit is too fantastic for words! And those dogs, I love them! Irish Wolfhounds? So beautiful, I always wanted one, but being a wee faery sized woman I had to think (when my daughter was little) that in the event of any emergency, I'd have to pick one up in each arm and flee, so a wee Westie was the choice. (Now what am I gonna do with a 13 year old a dog and a cat? Yipes, hold off on that zombie apocalypse!) Every time you show pics of the shop I get so excited, its really filled with goodies and displayed beautiful, may it prosper for many, many years to come! XXX

You my dear are absolutely glorious!!! If you were to walk past me in the street I would stop you and offer to take you to the nearest cafe and fill you up with tea and yummy cakes, just so I could bask in your glory!!!! Not only do you have the most wonderful emporium, but you take wonderful care of the beautiful waifs who waft through and bring their special magic, encouraged by you! You are an inspiration to every artisan on the planet! xoxoxox
