here are a couple of pictures from Dior's fantasy island: SS11 Spring 2011 show.
classic vintage makep that was "supremely glamorous, and flirtatiously tropical"
pops of color on the lids...LOVE it! i've always been a fan of bright and bold colors, whether it be green, purple, or electric blue with sparkles!!!
maybe growing up in the 80's took it's toll on me, haha!
back to Dior, i love the vintage feel betty bangs, with a muted punk edge, it's like rockabilly on vacation!

i must admit, i've been one at heart for as long as i can remember, so this suits me just fine! also, as you all know i LOVE using feathers in my hair accessories so can i get a WOOT!?!?!
on a side note, can i just say that i LOVE the aqua and blue shadows they used on her eyes, fierce! another big trend for spring, more on this later, let's stick to the hair!
next, the milkmaid braid, sticking with the boheimian feel, the milkmaid braid falls right in line.
i seriously need to figure out how to do this, or a remix i can manage on myself!
i got to wear aversion of this at a fashion show i did not that long ago, the designer was going for a greek goddess sort of feel. i really loved it! what do you think?
as thoughts turn to organizing and prepping for the holidays one can not help but think of creative/cost effective ways to package and keep purchases personalized for customers. this is definitely one aspect of my shop that i intend to focus on. found this lovely and inspirational article on the Heart Made Blog via marthastewart.com.
