Love Rosettes

It's no secret I love roses…from my mom, to my middle name, and my mama's beautiful garden. Oh and this beautiful dress, I just love it too! If you haven't noticed rosettes are everywhere this season…I can see why!

I have been in love with Deconstructress etsy shop for months, in fact I wanted to post her items on wordpress months ago, but since I was moving I postponed it. I am happy to finally post her work, and it makes me even happier that her shop is the first in my ongoing etsy shop series. Thank you Deconstructress for allowing me to feature your beautiful custom gown line!


Here's a brief bio on her shop:

Deconstructress states; "My gowns are created from scratch or by piecing together sample wedding gowns. I use new and old materials. Many of my gowns are hand painted using a variety of techniques to create wearable art. My inspirations come from art, literature, film, music, nature and anything else that I can interpret into a piece of clothing."

Want IT!

I was watching Oprah a few Friday's ago, as I became glued to the set. If you aren't familiar with Oprah's Friday format, she has Mark Consuelos and Mrs. George Stephanopolous aka Ali Wentworth as part of her panel. This day they shared photos of Ali's home which were featured in Elle Decor. I fell in love with this room, it's everything I wish my future abode will be when I am a rich journalist/businesswoman. Did you know that Wentworth created the swirls on the rug on her own? She stated on Oprah that the rug was stained, but instead of getting rid of it, she bought ink at her local grocery store, and designed the swirls on her own. How I wish I was that talented!
