Yes, Joy, a yellow dress is more than a yellow dress.

In the world of safe hues, like black, red and white, yellow shouts: "Look at me. I'm happy!"

My mother always told me to dress up when I felt tired, to dress happy when I was sad, and to recognize that sometimes clothing is more than something to safeguard modesty, provide warmth and protection from the elements, solicit attention, or display personal style and taste. Sometimes it is also a therapeutic carapace, a shell that hides our weaknesses and counters our grief and sorrow with defiant counterpoint.

Joy Sewing of the Houston Chronicle wrote a fun article called Why a yellow dress is more than a yellow dress. Could anyone who is feeling low find a more perfect carapace to project power, strength and joy than this bold, yet minimalist, sheath from Thalia Heckroth™?

New To Me MURRAY at Hair Fair

New to me Hair shop MURRAY is on my list of great styles and BEAUTIFUL beige blondes. I discovered them at HAIR FAIR this year and I can’t recommend them enough. The styles all fit my Lelutka head perfectly, and the colors and so gorgeous. I’m wearing one of the light blonde tones – I really love them.

I picked up a new skin applier today – an old favorite brand released a new skin and I just had to have it. Lara Hurley’s CINDY skin is gorgeous. I recommend you check it out.

That’s it for me from the studio! See you girls later!

Long Styles from Hair Fair in the Frame

Hair Fair in the Frame

This new top and skirt from Hucci for Collabor88 is just the ticket for showing off some of the longer hair styles from Hair Fair. It’s short, cheeky and free of collars (or even fabric) to interfere with the hair.

I had college roommates from Malaysia who wore sarongs all the time. It was amazing how active they could be without their sarongs coming loose. They showed me the proper way to wear a sarong and even gave me several sarongs over time, but I never quite got the knack and always worried when I had my hands full that my sarong might come loose without a hand to grab it. No such worries with the Hucci sarong though. Pixel knots stay in place.

Who Was I Kidding About Staying In?
