Your Fairy Tale Moment Is Nearly Here, Sieze It Firmly With Both Hand's & Do A Twirl,Go On!

You might wonder why You see before you an image of fairytale castle? Well I reckon that if anytime of the year is one where we should feel able to loose ourselves in a fairytale moment allowing ourselves to revel in our feminity and feeling beautiful it's the Christmas party season! So as a special treat I thought I would inspire you with a little Barbie couture. Ok we are not all barbie thin or wish to be for that matter, but why not take a little inspiration from one of the most Stylish dolls on the block! 
Rose pink fishtail dress, pure romance for that Christmas ball

Or perhaps this encrusted gold fishtale would be more to madams liking?

This black dress is achingly chic, modelled by our girl Barbie, but check out this original breathtaking Audrey Hepburn little black dress, below.

How about this collection of beauties? Vintage cuts in this seasons hottest colours.x

 I Adore this oriental inspired gold number, warming to cool skin tones and soo flattering against olive skin tones. The feathery, hairstyle, evocative of a plume on a helmet, brings this classic style bang up to date.

Bare legs are big news this winter brrr!

So on trend, faux fur shawl collar and tweed weave, pretty pink looks opulent on red heads and makes an elegant cover up over your evening dress.

Shimmer, sparkle and splash, all you would be mermaids out there!

Vintage anyone? Flapper dresses are great for boyish female shapes and create the much desired movement and swing, they were intended for originally!

Breath taking gold column dress, simply could not resist the fish scale fringing so pretty and echoing the 20s flapper look.

 Lets take Another sneaky peak into Audrey Hepburns auctioned vintage wardrobe, shall we? How many woman, could resist the elegant, feminine charms of this ivory dress of Audrey Hepburns? Great winter white dressing with a faux fur cape and lace up gold or teal boots, skater style!

Audrey had an eye for detail, layering, double bows and lace all wrapped up in a muted green that is soo flattering to peaches and cream complexions.

To finish, there is lace and then there is frothy, floaty lace!Simply stunning.  Sx

About Wendy & Her Work

Hi I'm Sharons friend, Wendy, sorry there is no picture of me, but I thought You might prefer to look at my Work!I'm a freelance artist and designer specialising in crafts and mural work.I had this idea some time ago, to combine all sorts of materials I had lying around my house to try and make something quite unusual,something very glitzy and something I hadn't tried making before.Before I knew it I had a house full of fairies, mermaids and angels, which were soon joined by reycycled glassware to which I added tons of glitter and gems.People started taking an interest and I started flying off around the world. 

Felt and flymo Jewellrey

Another area as you can see that I started delving into was jewelrey making, often making bespoke pieces.The more I dug into old boxes and bags around the house the more material I found to work with!Now any item of ceramic, glass,wood or anything else is fair game for glitzing up! 

Panel shot from mosaic mirror

My newest love is making treasure frames.These are miror or picture frames containing literally hundreds of tiny treasures, manmade and natural, shells, buttons, tiny toys, broken jewellrey, coins .... brought together to produce a spectacular feast!
I also run workshops, recently working with over with 500 people in one week-phew!I work with groups and offer private tution if needed.My mural work is seen in private homes, schools museums and nurseries in the UK and abroad.With all this going on I've no idea how I find time to chase around after my 3 teens, two cats, tortoise and my gorgeous husband!
Thanks for taking the time to read and looks at this, I would love to get your feedback on my work as I am considering selling online.If you would like to order one of my fairies, mermaids or angels and would like me to email you some of my designs, just email sharon @ sharonstyle@fsmail.net  with your email and I will be in touch. I can ship to you.Or if you are local to Lancashire you can collect your purchase or commisions  or pop along to one of my private viewings to get up close and personal with my work and enjoy a mince pie.May I wish you all a wonderful Christmas and a great 2010.Wendy xx
