Sitting Pretty

Are you thinking the fabulous fashion and over all "prettyness" at the Pretty Parlor come to a close when the open sign is off? If you are then your sadly mistaken. One rainy evening in February Beth Roberts and I had a well documented girly evening complete with a trip to the Mac counter (I feel so much lovelier when someone else does my make up). Rebecca LaGuire did some click click clicking of her camera while we pranced about the Parlor in some of my new spring creations. For the first round we donned some bubble dresses, I'm in a black and white check gingham strapless bubble (classic!) with a black and white plaid Dylan Rupert head band while Beth wears one of my favorites, a pucci like bubble dress worthy of a princess. Then we hit the pink satin couch in some fun sun dresses, always a summer favorite (bring on the sun). The evening proceeds with some maxi dresses (Beth in a navy and orange floral halter, and me in a country-tastic pony sun maxie) and my bread and butter for the summer, fun comfy knit tunics with pockets......and re invented empire waist blouses that I make from mens dress and work shirts. Lace is the order of the day when I put these tasty little garments together. Lace to replace the collar, and little lace cap sleeves. I'm thinkin' these little tops will also be great this fall with your favorite cardigan or light jacket. Gotta love a garment you can keep in your closet all year long.

A special thanks to the lovely lady LaGuire for her photo skills and precious time. Thank you Beth Roberts for being so hot, and thanks Anna Banana for letting us take over the Parlor for an evening there was absolutely no dearth of accessories to frost ourselves in.
