52 Pick-me-up: Iris

This week we celebrate the Iris.
Iris Petals by Len Burgess

The iris comes in a wide range of colors, but I was inspired by the purple ones.
Both of my ensembles feature the radiant purple scarf that Bella gave me last May.
Did you know that the heraldic fleur de lis motif is based on both the lily and the iris? Now you do!

I'll be linking up with Sacramento and Rosie's Share-In-Style on Monday.

You, on the other hand, will hopefully link here!

Spy Girl Watches: L.A. Frock Stars -- Vintage Rebranded

Episode 2 of L.A. Frock Stars aired last night, did you happen to catch it?
One of my favorite scenes was when Doris and Shelly Lyn visited the studio of
costume "jeweler to the stars" Joseff of Hollywood.
(Here's a video clip of that part).

I love Shelly Lyn. She is a Goddess.
She said something about respecting the "ratios" of one's body in Episode 1.
I must get her to elaborate on that now that we're Instagram pals!
You can see examples of her amazing jewelry designs here at Reikolyn.

New episodes will air on the Smithsonian Channel every Thursday at 9pm.
They are rebroadcasted, check 
this link, then click on the specific episode for air times.
The same link will also lead you to streams of all six episodes of Season 1 (for now).

Who will I sketch next? Come back next Friday to find out!

I was given access to screeners of all six episodes of Season 2 back in February. 
The above verbiage is all mine.

Are You Ready for the Return of Enid?

Enid's journal was left only half filled last year.
Leather-bound blank journal a gift from my brother (yay Randy!) 
Ducks in Paisley scarf a gift from Connie 
I'm doubling down and combining TWO April blogging events:
International Fake Journal Month 
Blogging from A to Z 

I've been brainstorming during #myshittycommute
(this particular session was for my upcoming show at TAG)
and am STILL not sure EXACTLY what Enid will post every day.
(IFJM "rules" stipulate creating the fake entries on the actual day. Enid is a bit of a wild card).

I'm lining up her inspiration and I promise it shall be alphabetically entertaining!
All I can say at this point is, it will have something to do with scarves.
A dance of the 26 veils, if you will.

Miz Bag has granted her approval

It's not too late to join in the madness!

ps: I had NO IDEA that this would be SCARF WEEK on 52 Pick-me-up when I wrote this post.
How fortuitous!
