I was fortunate enough to have known Tony. I met him when I was a make-up artist on Rodeo drive around 1989. He had a crush on a friend of mine. We became friends after that -talked a lot and he showed me all of his fabulous art. He was quite the artist. He was a legend. He was brilliant in Houdini one of my favorite movies.
I know that the past few collections from Boudoir Queen have been Chiffon and I hope that all my customers aren't sick of it because........ I'm doing another. I can't get enough chiffon and we are really doing well with it. Our line and a new business I'm working on (besides The Secret Circus)is really taking me to a whole other level of fashion. We have done so many collections and I still have tons of ideas so I'm moving forward in a big way. I hope to be able to share everything by March 2011- I've put in 5 hours at the studio this morning. We have fittings for the Bleach-Online shoot tomorrow. The actual shoot will be on the 3rd. I love the concept and I want to be sure to have lot's of options! I can't wait. Lovely models too!
Early meeting with my creative director this morning and now I'm off to the studio-I have some pretty fabulous dresses for the shoot drool!!
I'm wearing a 30's lace dress with a Edwardian bodice-Leggings H&M -Necklace Chrome Hearts with Victorian Locket-shoes Stella
I just came home from the studio after this mornings fitting. I'm preparing for the shoots I talked about in a previous blog. I'm also going thru garments that just came back from Tuesday's shoot. Things are already totally hectic and then I got a call from yet another magazine that is shooting next week. My problem is I don't really like shoot the same garments twice so we are trying to make some fabulous by next Sunday! I'm also trying to move everything to my website. After last weeks mishap where my name was exposed on a treasury viewed by 1200 people I really want to work from my website only and keep up with our wholesale /boutique orders. I love being in the treasury but last week I had at least 20 and there was the "glitch". Now that everyone knows about my website I'm eager to put all the new goodies up asap. I do have business in Los Angeles and will be back and forth a lot. Keep checking my blog for updates. I'm rarely on FB. I only use it to upload video's as my link here is still not working. It could be my computer. I just haven't had the time to deal with it! Here is a little something from a nice little magazine I'm doing-more later xox BQ
I always tease our Model Cali about David baby sitting her as a child-How awesome is that! The first time I met Angela Bowie was also the first night I met Steven Arnold. Steven's friend Joanne Fradkin who is still one of my best friends invited me to a huge party that Steven was throwing in Hollywood. She always kept saying "Steven will adore you you have to meet him and be his next muse" When I arrived I couldn't believe my eyes! Men everywhere covered from head to toe in gilt serving cocktails. Live models in crazy attire. Just big time eye-candy. There was a huge circus like tent that seemed to be the center of the happening. I walk in and there is Angela Bowie as part of the entertainment doing a fabulous exotic dance of some sort. Anyway I met her and Steven of course and the rest is history.
I do remember that when I finally got home I couldn't sleep. My mind was reeling. I had never whitnessed such decadence and most likely never again.
I am loving this photo shoot. My friends at The Banker's Suite really out did themselves this time! The Boudoir Queen wedding dress and veil look gorgeous! The necklace,cuff an cami look amazing too. I love the the whole vibe of this wonderful magical photograph!
I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed right now. Fabulous magazine editorial shoot today. Stylists meetings-Fitting on Friday-Sunday for two different shoots/film -Later I'll tell you about the Lady Gaga News Segment at BQ Studio's- Smashing Pumpkins Show was faboo . Oh and The Secret Circus Page is going to be a few more days;( Shoot on the 3rd * I'm leaving out a few very important details. I'll Update soon- Great photo-vogue
Tons of fabulous BQ Dresses,cuffs,jewels and headbands just went with a new faboo stylist! This is going to a an epic shoot. I can't wait. I forgot to mention that it looks like THE SECRET CIRCUS website/splashpage will be up in 2 days. It seems like it's taken forever to get this project going. I'm pretty thrilled it's all coming to fruition. Thank you Pixel Peach for always making us the most brilliant websites ever. We love you! We are working on the video clothes this week and we will be hosting a huge shoot at our studio for our friends at Bleach-Online. I love working with such talent.
When I get the time I have a fabulous Elle article with great photos of Pearl and Anita taken a few years ago. I need to scan and share. Great style and great decore'. As you can see my living room is much like the red room in Performance my closet room as well. Anita in Edwardian tops. I literally have about kazillion tops in this vibe that I have collected for years. These tops are pretty much "my uniform" I never get tired of it. Lot's on fringe shawls as well. Anita is the Grand Dame of this now ever so trendy look. I also adore the decore' in the movie "Stoned" The set designer did an amazing job and when we finally move I will do that look way over the top for sure. I love decorating my bedrooms with a " Poiret Vibe" Yum! I wasn't going to be on-line today but we have a little Breaking News that I might share later. It has nothing to do with the post where I said I had news. This is something totally different and I hope to let you all in on it a little later.
Ok last bloggy- so.... my hair didn't turn out quite as Ombre' as I would have liked-Mainly because my hairdresser thought I would freak. So next time more brown on top. Costume of the day consists of Diane von Furstenberg black lace wrap top (Barney's Beverly Hills)- BQ rings sold- Gorgeous 1920's nude beaded tunic dress that comes with a sash-stockings Nordstrom and shoes Prada flats -oh and my necklace is genuine pearls that my father-in-law bought me on his trip to Asia. The music has stopped. The rain has stopped...so I'm off.
I'm getting ready to go buy more faboo textiles. I wanna say thank you to my ladies who go all over the place just to find me goodies! Especially one who is my fav and she knows who she is. I'm sorry I haven't been able to get the pics up on the vintage part of my site yet. What's happening right now is utterly incredible and soon I will be able to spill the beans. I do have 2 shoots next week. One magazine and one for a fab online magazine/fashion blog. I was asked to do a really fun fashion show in town. I'm very bummed that I had to decline do to what is going on in my life right now. When the invites go out-I'll be sure to let all of my Austin friends know so they can attend
Now I'm off to go buy goodies for www.theboudoirqueen.com- The boys in Mark's band are playing in the studio right now. They have an acoustic show at a record store next week -I'll post about it on Monday!
Have a great week- I won't be on-line much over the next few weeks. Email me direct with any questions. My assistant will be on my website and on Etsy. We are mainly selling on our website and trying to slowly move everything over from etsy-sadly I just haven't had the time to finish as it is a huge task.
Much Love BQ
