Halloween weekend is now upon us, and no doubt you're as busy as bee getting your costume in order, the candy bowl stocked, and the pumpkins in place=)!! ...It's been a wonderful week of doing the Halloween hustle at Mademoiselle Mermaid, creating lots of gorgeous costume pieces that I hope will simply delight their wearers this weekend!! This periwinkle, early morning scene (above) is just the tranquil sort of thing to refresh my senses and renew my spirit for the fun ahead!! ...Goes great with my new lilac bow turban headband, too...don't you think?!
Hello, and HappyMermaid♥Monday from under my new favorite fashion turban!! ...It's this gorgeous and silky smooth, light-catching, navy blue little number- featuring a sparkly rhinestone jewel and available in a rainbow of colors of course=)!! Flower power is the fuel I run on, so no wonder I'm loving the extra bounce in my step when I top off a fabulous fall ensemble with this playful, velvety piece!! The Flower Power Turban has just landed en shoppe, right here on Etsy=)!! Have a beautiful week!!
In Southern California, bright fuchsia bougainvillea is everywhere!!... ...in every season...around every corner. A shocking beautiful burst of hot pink spilling out from the bramble by the freeway entrance, or climbing across an ordinary chain link fence, is a common enough sight for this Friday Flower Pick-er. But this particular bougainvillea specimen really caught my eye, looking especially fetching in the early morning light, with a background of soft clouds, blue sky, and magnificent palm trees. I thought it was time to give one of my favorite everyday, California classic plants a moment in the sun!!
I'm super pleased to be announcing the launch of a new neckwear design for today's Mermaid Monday post!!
...It's my perfectly lovely and lacy jabot, available in black, white, or ivory!!
With a wraparound style neckband that ties in an elegant bow at the front, a cascade of ruffles, and dreamy floral stretch lace fabric, fans of vintage-style accessories will find this an easy fashion collar to wear...with major romantic appeal.
Orange is certainly my color of the moment. From all things pumpkin spice, to pumpkin carving, and even pumpkin colored roses...the blaze oranges have it!! ...Orange you glad it's October?! Happy♥Friday!! Love, Mademoiselle♥Mermaid
We've made it to October, one my favorite months of the year, and I'm beyond excited to get started with all things orange 'n black, pumpkin patches, and fall flower bouquets!!
...And how about a little mermaid art to start the Halloween season off most bewitchingly?!
...A lovely, new, black cotton gauze ruffle scarf does the trick too=)
