Queen Michelle of KOS worked her twilight magic and some kittenish charms too with my SWANclothing Fringe Corset dress for Dark Swan. and i love it. the black swan image and night sky are also from the KOS site. much thanks Queen Michelle for the beautiful pictures. though SWANclothing is sweet it is always only half-sweet.

i can’t do it very often but sometimes i just send things out into the world. i actually wish i could do that all the time. Rhiannon of liebemarlene vintage commented that she liked the Tiny Rose purse in my Flickr stream and i thought it was such a perfect match. Rhiannon wore it on a 4th of July visit to see her family in Tennessee. here she is with her sister Lauren.

i love the photos so much and her stylings and what Rhiannon said…

“The lovely Tara at SWANclothing must have known that I was getting bored of the 2 or 3 purses I carry around on a regular basis, because she offered to send me one of her new Tiny Rose purses, which I’d been eyeing. I think I’ve used mine about every single day since it came in the mail—small cross-body bags are just perfect for summertime anyway, but this one is especially nice and light. The denim fabric gives an edge to my a lot of times too cutesy outfits in the same way that a denim jacket does—I was actually tempted to wear a jean jacket with this dress, but it would have been way too hot and I would have gotten teased, and, besides, the Tiny Rose really gives the dress the same sort of feeling.”

much thanks Rhiannon :) and also Drew! for the photos.

Jennine of THE COVETED got her new SWANclothing Rose Quilted Louche. she did a sweet write-up and took some sweet pics in a sunny German forest . like i’ve said before, i just love to see where my totes travel to. thank you very much Jennine! enjoy your tote.

and just wanted to add, Jennine has been very supportive of my SWANclothing undertakings. my thanks is fully heartfelt. her blog continues to be a very clear voice in the exploding array, and sometimes disarray, of fashion blogs out there. i’m a fan, and if you aren’t yet, go be one… she also herds a flock of us fashion bloggers as IFB. a very astute fashion bloggers resource.

ok, back to making FALL ITEMS!
