I am a huge fan of old fashion pin-ups. Those girls had curves and were proud to show them! The pictures below show the real life inspiration behind some of these timeless icons.

{April 3, 2011}   Fairy Tale Fashion

There is nothing like a good story from a Golden Book to bring me back to my childhood. This reuse fashion creation, turning classic stories into a beautiful gown fit for a queen is an amazing idea! Designer Ryan Novelline brought this Fairy Tale to life, using discarded books and the golden spines to create a well fitted corset.

I stumbled upon HonestlyWTF today for the first time. And what to my wondering eyes should appear? But photos of beautiful spring attire on far away beaches. Oh, to hear the wisps of the ocean waves, instead of the icy wind mixed with snow. So because I believe in sharing here is some images of an oasis that seems so far away during these winter months. These fabulous clothes are from Free People.

P.S. HonestlyWTF is my new favorite website. Oh you bring me so many cool things yet waste so much of my time.

{September 24, 2010}   Bra & Brassieres in a new way

Laura Ann Jacobs has recreated the way I look at bras. She has taken the female form and combined it with nature.

A style like this would look jazzy in a burlesque show.

{September 16, 2010}   For the love of Betty White

This lady has been rocking out this year. It seems nothing will stop her! From hosting Saturday Night Live, staring in her TV show Hot in Cleveland, and her movie coming out in a few weeks, Betty White has got it. What is it?, you ask. It’s the attention of everyone. Betty White has a special place in my heart. Here’s a spicy video she did on her clothing line, Watch, Enjoy, and Learn from the Master.

Keeping up with the current trends, her HoodieBuddie clothing have built in headphones. To check out the different style and see classy Betty White prints click here.

It’s offically Spring! Let’s celebrate the bright and beautiful 🙂

Clarabelle XOXO

Spring is breaking through the ground. With it come bright greens, blues, yellows, and soft browns. Now you can break free from mittens, gloves, toques, and earmuffs. To help celebrate here are a few bright and shiny gems to feast your eyes on. Ps. They are all Canadian made products except for the bracelets.

{March 7, 2010}   Feeling sugar sweet?

To match that sweet sugary personality, try on a Candy Glam Rings. So artfully created with juicy colours, your mind will get lost and believes it’s carefully blown glass.  With every ring it’s a new Chistian Escriba masterpiece.

Walking to the bus stop today I noticed something, my toes felt a little wet. Seeing puddles of melted snow everywhere got me excited. Spring is coming! That means more jazzy shoes and glamorous dresses! The internet is all abuzz about fashion week and the new styles that will be grooving to the beat of spring on the street. The looks were marvellous, so I decided to look for their more reasonably priced twins.
