When I saw this lovely bright and luscious dress at Ninia, the Big Maybelle song Candy jumped into my head and stayed there. Of course, it was her deep, syrupy voice that makes the song, that signature growl of hers, but for whatever reason, it’s always a joy to get Big Maybelle’s music on your mind.
Why I call my sugar candy
I’m sweet on Candy
And candy’s sweet on me
Shiny Things has some wonderful sandals that are perfectly candy-like. The come with these light wood platforms or with dark cherry platforms.
The lovely Fresh Baked Goods Thumbprint Cookie jewelry set reminds me of Stained Glass Candy that my sister makes. Basically, it’s cooking a simple syrup so that it will set hard and brittle and then dropping a dash of food coloring and food flavoring in it. She usually uses anise with red coloring, mint with green, etc. When you’re cooking simple syrup to a hard crack stage a lot of steam rises. Here’s a very important tip, when you drop your anise flavoring in, whatever you do, don’t be close enough for that anise infused steam to get on your face and eyes. It’s a whole new world of hurt.
For this I chose the one of the spring makeups from PXL Creations July.

Oh that is a hot dress, I love the texture!
I don’t know about hot, but it’s absolutely lovely. I thought it looked great when I saw it on Flickr; it’s good to have it here on the blog as well.
