Just a little update- as many of you know I just got out (escaped) from the hospital cardiac unit and have been dealing with some other issues as well. It looks like things are resolving and the Vertigo is starting to fade slowly. It comes and goes and could last for a long time. (not happy) However, it has given me plenty of opportunity to contact all my pickers and online dealer friends. While bed ridden I have managed to buy some stunning high luxury vintage. Here's a photos of something new (Edwardian) floral and black net which is unusual. I like the contrast size 36B-27W Hips free. Later I will post my new dream dress. Stay tuned I'll be on the horn today-
For those of you who know me well or follow my FB you will know that I've been in the hospital for a few days for my heart and some vertigo issues. I hope to be up and running as soon as possible although I am dealing with some of my stressful legal issues as well so I'm trying to stay relaxed. xoxoxo

Went to the salon yesterday and had all of that silly pink stripped out of my hair. Even the chalk didn't really want to come out. I was going thru all the old blonde looks of mine. My hair is uber bright blonde and mid-back now. Probably too long but I'm loving braids right now. I have the best blonde hairdresser for all of you Austin friends. My ex husband is a hair dresser in L.A so when I leave on my trip I'll come back with a new hair cut. Excited.
This is the first of several magazines that are coming out. I love the fact that so many people read this one. Boudoir Queen in the summer issue of Belle-Armoire Special thanks to Mark Younger-Smith (photo's) and my friend Cheryl Conley Bemis for helping me with the (article) Available at most bookstores. I was gone all day in Austin at the salon and a fabulous Clay pit Indian food lunch and came home to and Etsy mania! We were on the frontpage today. As most of you know we are selling privately and on the site as well. I will also be updating my www.theboudoirqueen.com soon I have a lot of it
I'll try and update with news soon.
This photo has been a big hit on facebook the past couple of days so I'll post here. I think I was 26. This was taken in Hollywood Hills at my friend Barbara Groeger's house. I'm wearing a custom made silk green lounging suit that was very crazy. It looked like Peter Pan sort of. The hat was green velvet and my hair pretty much an inch long all over. Anyway so many people emailing saying they thought it was a picture of Natalie Portman. Funny.......
Secrets of a famed style Icon Diana Vreeland
The pillows in her house were injected with perfume via syringes
One of her photographic shoots for Vogue in the Seventies was estimated to have cost $1 million
She had dollar bills ironed before use
She ate peanut butter and marmalade sandwiches for lunch everyday, washed down with Scotch
When guests came for afternoon tea, she would have vodka poured from a silver teapot
Her favourite book, which she often re-read, was Moby Dick
with out going into too much detail Boudoir Queen has been asked to be the finale in a huge NYC Fashion Show in October. I haven't decided if I want to do it yet but if I do there will be BQ offerings at that time. We will not be producing any new garments this summer. I've had so many emails. Please choose from what we already have. We do not do custom clothing. I have lots of new vintage but again contact me direct.
Playing dress up today going thru all the new vintage. I'm doing shows now .....so be sure and ask about new arrivals. It's become too tedious to photograph everything. I'm really taking the summer off (sort of) I'm never really off work like I'd like to be. I'll also be in L.A for most of the end of summer on a buying and selling trip and hanging out with my family and friends. I may close my shops in mid- July / August or before. So contact me direct
A lot of the elements in this shoot are very do it yourself. Love it!
