Victorian Misfit Gown


The trains all stopped dead in their tracks as she walked by…stunning, breathtaking and with devious intentions. Born of another time, lost in this world, she is a misfit.The Misfit Gown is deep blood red satin, covered with a net and lace overdress. The overdress is adorned with black lace, ribbon and sequins. This fitted A-line dress gives you a glamorous statuesque figure, while not being impossible to wear, accentuating the bust and hemline, while distracting from the hips and tummy. Dress has spaghetti straps and a side zipper.

This is a dress that is truly to die for…



Super Cool Downloadable Digital Collage Sheets


Yesterday while perusing ETSY I came across a gal in England that makes some of the coolest downloadable digital collage sheets for $3.99 each.  Currently, she has over 200 different sheets to purchase, that could be used for a plethora of different things;  from gift tags to spice labels.

My smart husband also reminded me that if the files are of a high quality, they could be used as the base for artwork such as stretched custom canvas where they use your personal image.

Where Have All The Vests Gone?


I am not sure why I am all of a sudden smitten with men’s vests.  But, I find them while worn casually, to be a really enticing adornment to a mans attire.  I think it’s one of the most underused, yet BEST accessories that a dude can wear in a dressed down sitch or a dressed up one as well!
