Words of Wisdom : Always be a Unicorn

“Be yourself. 
Unless you can be a unicorn, 
In that case, you should always be a unicorn."

-Elle Lothlorien, Alice in Wonderland


Mermaid Monday : Lacy Lady Caftan

My love of all-things-lace cannot be overstated...
and wearing it in a supremely elegant caftan cover up, is one of my favorite ways to show it!!

This florally, stretch lace fabric feels like a dream to wear, drapes beautifully, and never met a body shape it didn't want to flatter!!

...If it's summer where you are...or if you're headed somewhere tropical (lucky you!!), it makes a gorgeous beach cover up!!
But if cooler weather is more like what's on your horizon, it works as an elegant layering piece too!!

There's always something new at Mademoiselle Mermaid=)!!
...Speaking of which, is getting a little makeover this month.

So pretty please pardon my dust...
I promise it's going to be fun 'n fabulous when it's done=)!!

Friday Flower Pick : Sunshine Roses

From a soft, colorful a full 'n hot midday sun...
to the sunset's low and golden glow...
the sparkling star of our daytime sky has oh-so many looks and moods.
And I love exploring how she plays with the roses dancing in the garden throughout the day!!

Today's Friday Flower Pick  features a few snapshots of some favorite subjects: roses 'n sunshine!!


Things I Love : Fringe Leg Warmers

Hello, October!!

Welcome to a new month!!...and one of my favorite months at that=)
Halloween is on the way...and so are longer nights, cooler weather, and beautiful Fall breezes.

I'm so inspired by the magic of this time of year...
and these fabulous new leg warmers are a result=)!! 

...It's been a while since I released a new legwear design,
and I'm glad that the new edition to my line is something a little outrageous=)!!

My handmade and high fashion crochet leg warmers, 
with a cascade of fringe and vintage-look buttons,
are just in=)...on Etsy!!

Words of Wisdom : A Path of Your Own

"Pursue some path, 
however narrow and crooked, 
in which you can walk with love and reverence."

-Henry David Thoreau 


New! Color Block Bow Turbans by Mademoiselle Mermaid

Here's a fun little something that has been waiting, 
all sketched-up and hanging on my design board, 
for quite a while now!! 

...So I thought it was high time I brought this fun, colorful, color block turban to life=)!!
The 'tropical punch' palette is charming, and definitely suited for a mermaid,
but I couldn't resist trying out a classy black and white version too!!

Mermaid Monday : The Beach Poncho

Something breezy, gauzy, and new has just landed at Mademoiselle Mermaid!! 
...It's the beach poncho!!

I love the effortless and simple silhouette of this beachy number, which features my favorite crinkle cotton gauze and a quite alluring open back :-)

...It packs light, loves to travel, and is
available in a rainbow of colors too!!
