Friday's Fancies

1/27/2012

Happy Friday darlings! Kirby and I are so happy to be joining into the Friday Fancies fun!  My inspiration came from my wall actually (which I stare at a lot in place of actually getting things done). You see I have two incredibly gorgeous paintings by the talented Peggy Wolf hanging above my dresser and I'm just mesmerized by both the colors and the expressions on the womens' faces. I quickly scurried to Peggy's site and found the above print, which I am now obsessed with.  The woman pictured wears bows, and boas and big, gaudy rings and colors that don't sync and yet she looks dazzling. Her outfit consists of black lace, polka dots, gold, teal and sparkling yellow and red... and I'm pretty sure if I met her, I'd never forget her.
