Friday Lovelies: A bit to oggle your brain and assault your senses!

A few tidbits to tantalize your noodle and unleash your creative sparkle......Brace your pantaloons, this is a a tad on the longie, making up for last weeks rushed flurry of posting!....

Behold.....Rachel Brice, the international tribal fusion bellydancer extraordinaire.... (This should be one of those Wayne's World "we're not worthy" moments.)
For about 7-8 years now, this woman has been an endless source of inspiration for me. Gypsy glam meets vaudevillian temptress. With moves that could charm the skin off a snake. She is positively hypnotizing, when she takes the stage, you can feel the aura of the entire audience change. Utter silence and awe sweep over every single person in the room, it's like you're peeking through a precious window of the past, a fleeting moment where you know the woman slinking about could very well have held her own with the best of Ziegfeld's flock. I suggest you catch her on tour with The Indigo if you ever have a chance. It is gauranteed to be an evening you will not soon forget. Just ask Tracy, my latest convert...

Since we're on the subject...Drink up all that is dazzling about said lady de dance...

Do you ever feel you have so many dreams you may just combust into a flurry of overwhelmed bits of creative dust bunnies? Does it sometimes give you the jeebies that you might not be able to accomplish them, and find yourself talking your way out of committing, moving forward. etc. chalking them up as another hair-brained scheme that never should have been? Well knock it off sister (ahem, or brother darling!) Channel your inner Rosie the Riveter and give yourself the greatest gift, the confidence that you CAN do it! I don't care what it is, how grand a scheme, or silly a dream. If you have the heart, you'll find your world around you will begin to mold it's way down the path to bigger, better, and far greener, glittering pastures you may have missed. I love the challenge of accomplishing some wild goal I've dreamt of since I was a child, model on the covers of international magazines? Check! Launch my own successfully unique quirky costume line? Done! Craft makeup magic and hair delights on indie film sets in Hollywood, yup. Travel in far off countries, all by myself? OUI!....The bejeweled bottom line, my dearies, is that you can run with your dreams and find yourself living them. So, tonight before your lovely cheek hits that silken pillow, ask yourself, what twinkling delight your heart desires most right now. And wake up with a new found purpose....

My very first post here on my wee little blog, in the not so distant past, was about my enthrallment with the new costume drama heading for the big screen...Water for Elephants. In need of a good read since I obliterated last week's book in my stuck-in-bed sickee state, I had to nab a new copy today so I could brush up before running, well, clamoring, to see it as soon as it hits theatres. I will repeat, *and often* how dearly I've always wanted to run away with the circus. (:::ahem::: Regarding above post, note one of my long standing goals is to perform in a cirque of some kind, working on it now!!! Keep ya posted!)

This literary drama whisks you away to the age of glamour and showmanship, where whisps of silk chiffon danced across the center ring with glints of slightly tainted stones reflecting the twinkle in your eye as you watched the chorus girls dazzle with their charms, the trapezists perched precariously above your head, the master of ceremonies in the midst, tantalizing and tiptoeing with danger....But this is only the tip of slightly worn top hat....Behind the big top lurks a world of intrigue, romance, lust, revenge, and creative souls longing to soar in a dying art.......
Check out my previous post for sneak peeks at the drool worthy glam de garb, and a run down on the flick!

While writing this blog-a-doodle my music meandered to my fave pondering-mondo-inspiring bootie shaker playlist which features heavily the tribal-vaudevillian-nouveau techno sounds of Beats Antique. Not everybody's cup-o-tea, granted I know, but it's what tickles my fancy at the moment....

NYFW wrapped up with little to be left to make the mind wander and bend around the endless possibilities of creative expression through fashion, with the exception of Betsey Johnson. *Of course!*
But, most inspiring was not the appearance of her drop dead delectable dresses and eye candy prints. It was her casting for the new "Pink Patch" half of her show. *(Pink Patch will be her under $100, kinder to your glittering purse strings diffusion line, coming this fall. Squeeeeel! Swoooon!)*
Betsey had me all a twitter over the fact that she sent tattooed ladies, preggeroo mama jammas, gloriously gay men, and curvy femmes, all selected from her actual employees, led down the catwalk by the queen of bloggie heaven Ms. Gala Darling herself! It was a lusty sight to behold indeed, with the added anticipation of the fact that many of these little 'fits will slide nicely into my closet with fewer grumbles from my wallet......

Honorable mention goes to Marc Jacobs for giving it a-go-go with polka dots, and pairing with the saint of all millinery Stephen Jones........Oh Mr. Jones how your hatties send me!

Just reaffirming our Ponder topic for you my dearies!.....

Hell yeah wall hanging!!! By Cathe. 
Kitschy Coo-Coo wall hangings make your heart do the happy dance? Well fear no more, here's one blogger's guide to crafting your very own masterpiece.

Well, I'm off for a wild adventure in the desert wilderness, camping ahoy! Cannot wait to read by the crackling fire beneath a full moon, with a canopy of stars to snuggle under....Happy weekending my dhaaaaaalings!
