Mirror Mirror

Oy vey!! I have been in & out of Curtsyland over the last week.....and today found myself completely overwhelmed by how good the UPS man has been to us lately. Sooooooo many new goodies to play with!! First things Tarina arrived......can't do anything until I fall head over heels for every new piece we received. The catalog and internet never quite do her jewels breathtaking in person! I love love love the new earrings from the Floriculture collection.....the vintage resin flowers are so gorgeous and just what a drab winter outfit needs. I also adore the new lucite jeweled butterfly pieces.....we have the butterflies adorning a long necklace and an elastic ribbon headband.

I have fallen behind on watching my normal tv shows this past week. But my BFF was in town and we are both addicted to the Rachel Zoe Project so we made time. For those of you who aren't familiar....Rachel Zoe is best known as a stylist to the stars. Long before stylists were the norm for celebrities.....the legendary costume designer Edith Head was dressing Hollywoods most fashionable women & men on screen & off. During her forty-four years at Paramount Pictures (1923-1967), she dressed Hollywood's biggest stars and created some of the most iconic fashion images on film. She won eight Oscars and was nominated thirty-four times for the award during her career. In 1959, she published a best-selling memoir and style guide....The Dress which she shared tips on style and dozens of entertaining anecdotes on Hollywood's A-list with her fans. We just received a special edition of the original volume.....filled with Head's timeless tips on the art of getting dressed.

We also received a new jewelry line that I was uber excited to play with....Mirror Mirror on the Wall. The line includes gorgeous pins, earrings & necklaces with pretty images adorned with glitter and usually surrounded by jewels or pearls. I love the "Life is Good" features the silhouette of a lovely surrounded by blue jewels. I also love the pearl Paris bracelet. It features five black & white images of The City of Light.....each surrounded by clear jewels & pearls.
