OMG it's gorgeous [Dec. 28th, 2007|01:02 pm]

[Current Mood |ecstaticecstatic]

First, I'd like to say thank you to the fabulous s00j for pointing me to this clothing artist. I would never have found her on my own, but thanks to S.J., I am now the proud owner of this dress:


The Fabulous Dress
The Fabulous Dress


It arrived in the post today and I immediately had to put it on. Even hanging on my bounteous curves, it's gorgeous. My only regret that I didn't find out about it soon enough in the year to tel everyone that all I wanted for Christmas was clothing from her store. (Okay, that's easy to say now that I have all the prezzies I wanted, I admit it.)

It does, however, make it easy to know what to ask for in the future. I want a whole wardrobe of clothes from her.

And I know what I'm wearing to the shindig on New Year's Day. catvalente, can you please, please, please do me a favor on New Year's Eve and bring over jewelry to try out with it and let me borrow something? It deserves a fabulous piece, of which you have many and I have few and certainly nothing dramatic enough for this.

I want to wear her clothes everywhere I go. It's marvelous!!!

WOW!!!

I'm bookmarking that shop- I think my first 'reward' for losing weight in the new year will be one of her dresses. Does she make them in petite? lol!

She will shorten anything, and I get the impression that you can ask for things to be made specifically in your size. Also, everything is very stretchy and flowy, so it adapts to a variety of sizes.

Thanks!

I love a little motivation, and pretty, flowy clothes are always an inspiration. :D

/subtle hint to theferrett


Thanks for posting that link. If she's serious about making clothes for any size, I've just made my new best friend!

Not so much a hint to Ferrett. I am just so damned impressed with the jewelry Cat Valente finds - it's always amazing.

It's taking all my "post-Christmas-must-pay-off-bills" self control not to order another one right now.

I love to quilt, but am trash at actual clothing construction. I have no interest in doing it, either. I'll stick to hints. ;-)

What a lovely dress! Too bad I'm expanding right now or I'd use some of my fun money on her stuff. Oh well, yet another incentive to get the baby weight off with good speed!

Oh, but you didn't read for enough. on several of the dresses she specifically says that the fabric is stretchy enough to accommodate baby!

I like that she makes them in different sizes. =)

I am thinking about getting this one or this.
So pretty!

Well... that does give you a good excuse to dress up again sometime soon, doesn't it? :)
