Ever wondered what prep looks like at THD?
This is what I lead you to believe.….….…..
Nice, pretty neat right?.….…
Then you look down the desk the other way.
See you Sunday!!!
This just in from a recent bride.…..
I just picked up my bouquet this morning and it is more beautiful and perfect than I could ever imagine!! Pictures do not do it justice.
Thank you ever so much for you amazing talents and for making my piece absolutely perfectly. Also, thankyou for your honesty and integrity.
And thankyou for the little gifts!! Love them!!”
House clothes.…..I once had a mother-in-law that swore by them. Yes, she would get changed out of her house clothes, hang them on the back of the bedroom door and put on non-house clothes, to go down the shops, sometimes several times a day if the errands demanded it.
Personally I don’t believe in them, I want to look fabulous even at home, where no one sees me, except, of course, my 3 year old (who has no respect for my ‘no house clothes’ mantra for life as she smears vegemite on me and pretends to give me a kiss while, what it’s actually about, is wiping her mouth me).
How I think I look while at home, being creative. Red Valentino Fall 2012.
I mean, how do you actually decide which article of clothing is ‘house’ or ‘non-house’?
Is there a grading system by fabric, price, quality, colour, cut or form?
Do all clothes start off life as ‘non-house’ then, if they play up, get demoted?
’ You jumper, have seriously pilled, this is a major offence, no outings for you, ever again, I shall re-fashion you into a cushion cover or some other crafty item.‘
Cushions made from jumpers and old ‘offending’ clothing!
But, in all seriousness, I do get more than a little annoyed when, after 2 wears and 1 wash ( I know, I know — I don’t wash after every wear– gross, shocking, six words for you.….….over.….….40…
But then, what to do with the offending article that I loved once (and feel it still owes me as it’s not become value for money yet — how could it after only 2 wears?). It’s not old, it has a cool silhouette, it my favourite colour (black if you’re wondering), it’s comfortable and yet stylish and looks amazing with heaps of jewells piled at the neck.
Do I take to it with a razor blade?
Or one of those special pil remover contraptions?
And then, as I am hanging it up in the wardrobe, the thought pops into my head.
‘Oh’, I think, ‘I can just wear it around the house’, and as quickly as the thought sprung up, I furrowed my brow with sadness,as it dawned on me what had begun.
I have begun the transition from hip young thing to practical, sensible hip older thing.
How could it be? Can I trust my thoughts ever again?
How far will it spread? Will I start to look at shoes as sensible or non sensible now?
So, as I contemplate my new life of wardrobe choices, I sign off to go and re-arrange my clothes and decide if I can be seen in public with fabric that’s pilled.
Amazing cool NY woman I want to emulate as I age.

And that’s when it occurs, the worst possible thing.….….a tiny little bump in the road that makes the precious stuff drip onto my phone that is crazily sitting below the cup holder. No worries, wipe it off, carry on, like all the other times (yes, you read right, other times).
Huge day shooting yesterday with Alex Bell of sundaysunset.images.
I’m sharing this with you, partly because I’m thrilled, and partly because this highlights how the small details count!
I received a wonderful email from a customer to say how happy his wife was with his purchase and to tell me how he had posted on his blog about the gift and it’s presentation.
Here is his image.
Have a read of Joe’s post and tell me what you do that keeps your business fresh and unique. What is it that sets you apart from the competition?
So I was pretty thrilled when the wonderful styling team from Sorellas Australia and Decode Hair requested that I make some custom pieces for Maylea to wear to an event. In the end she wore a custom made cuff and earrings of sterling silver, black onyx and base metal chain.
She had a baby just 14 days ago and I can’t believe how awesome she looks — not to mention awake!
