A few months ago, I was inspired to make a fanciful little girl's dress embellished with yo-yo's. Shortly after, I spotted the mirror ball dot fabric and thought it could be made into very festive yo-yo's, perhaps sewn onto a Christmas dress. I then happened on this gorgeous Christmas garland at our neighborhood plant nursery, Figaro's Garden, and was further inspired. Lastly, I went to see Sofia Coppola's "Marie-Antoinette" and was completely smitten by le look of the movie; the very pretty bonbon-esque layering of fabrics, trims, ribbons and sheen has been on my brain ever since...With all this jumble of eye-candy in my head, I came up with this little girl's dress just in time for Christmas Eve and, given that today is New Year's Eve - a time when some of us don glamy little dresses-, I thought I would show you some shots I took of my 7-year-old daughter twirling in her new festive little dress -
Hope you don't mind, but I also squeezed in a few
of my favorite images of "Marie-Antoinette" for those of you who
haven't seen this fabulous piece of eye candy! If you'd also like to
see some other very gorgeous Marie-Antoinette related images, look here, here, here and here and, if you're interested in yo-yo's, here and here.
And on this very frivolous high note, I bid you all the very best in the New Year!
