Hi everyone- I'll be listing more at the end of next week! Worked on the new site all day. Its still not finished hopefully in 10 days or so. Enjoy my blog because I'm probably deleting it. I have a new one on my site. It's great. You can pin my items to pinterest it has my FB - instagram links. All sorts of fun stuff. Im relaxing now. I bought all new gorge flowers for the front yard yesterday. Getting the tent up and the fountain going. I happy to be getting the yard in some kind of order. The people that owned the home before didn't do anything to the yard. The trouble with large homes is there are just way to many projects. I need a staff in this place. Ok back to relaxing have a fabulous weekend!
Ageing gracefully! Jessica Lange, 68, proves that not all actresses rely on Botox and she still gets the best movies scripts!

Good morning, so as you can imagine we are getting really amped up for our show. The clothes thus far are sooooo fabulous I can't even tell you. A little of our old style which is so hot right now and mixed with new. If you are a fan you will flip! The textiles are divine we did not skimp on the luxury fineries thats for sure! Start saving now for May 21st! As usual we were asked to be the finale. You all know I love to open with a bang. After I saw this line up Im thrilled I made the decision to go first! I'm also driving back to Smithville that night. It is going to be a VERY long day! Mark of course is doing the cool music mixing that he always does! On another note- My web person will be here on Saturday and I hope to have the new site up and running by next week. Who knows I might even put one of the new pieces up for pre sale ;)))))) xo BQ

So many people don't know about the show we did on Congress in Austin at PINK in 2002. It wasn't filmed I had just arrived in Austin so Im going back into my archives for the hair and make-up. Im mixing it up however, I'm really not giving many clues at this point but its looking good so far! Making the clothes is the easy part. Getting models - Hair and Make up on the same page for an event that I do not have full control over is the hard part. I will not be using any BQ models just Agency Models from Houston. Here we go........
Hi Just a quick note about this dress. I have had a ton of interest in it. Its one of my best pieces. I was looking thru all the close up images just now and noticed at the waist in the back it has a slight discoloration. I can see in the photos but didn't notice at all on the model at all. That being said I am reducing the price and if you want to see more photos LMK now 375 as is. Normally imperfections is the norm for me but I had this priced as a pristine piece. So I'm changing the price on ETSY now was 575 The discoloration has been enhanced my husband didn't even notice this when he was shooting so someone will get a deal on this!
Happy Monday! NOT! lol so I'm taking a break from listing today. I know you all thought I was exaggerating when I said I have massive amounts of vintage to shoot and know you can see why I have procrastinated. I haven't even cracked the surface. Usually when designers do shoots they do about 4 looks a day. We do about 20+ its exhausting. Shannon is working on the couture today and we are shipping packages as well. My studio and home look like a war zone. Textiles,flowers,fabrics lingerie,shoes everywhere. Looks like some crazy teenager lives here. I just can't live like this Im a neat freak. That being said I need to get some things done so happy shopping! There are tons of pretties up for sale. Don't forget we will have a new shop too. Thats another story. I have to transfer everything from Etsy to my new store and do a fashion show!!! I faint....ok have a great day I'll be cleaning ;)
P.S. Happy you're all enjoying our BQ Instagram and it will be featured on my new website front page. Yes I'll be listing more of my Egyptian Czech Jewels and my original beaded choker designs from 2006! Our fabulous dresses meaning our designs. Our distinct style of cuffs late nineties. Maybe they will come back in style. Its been part of our collection since day one. Thats whats great about dated editorials. Thanks for all the nice comments online happy to see people are seeing the light. There's nothing lower in the design world than using other peoples designs and trying to slightly change and pass off as your own and thats putting it mildly. At least say its a knock off right? I mean imitation is not the sincerest form of flattery. Its Just plain creepy. This is about working hard on things, only to see others trying to steal your identity. There needs to be some rules in the fashion world like the art world. There is intellectual property but who has time for that. Not me. Thats why I love all the editorial work I have under my belt dated documented fashion! The only words of wisdom I can give designer friends is keep changing and moving forward. I can tell you without a doubt honesty does triumph in the end!
Hi everyone!! I have some very exciting news. I have an all new website. I was hoping to launch today but due to the holiday I have to wait for my website person to finish all the details and there are a lot. This site is great it will have a new blog and be connected to all social media, phones you name it. I will be ditching big cartel. You will be able to go directly to my new site when I upload the link or you can do it thru www.theboudoirqueen.com. Its best to go direct. The great news is I can also make my blog private or keep out certain undesirables. (meaning people who rifle thru my blog for copying purposes not shopping or admiring)I really must say that due to the Texas person that logs on my blog night and day my blog is worth over 3k from constant hits. (there is a site that gives you all the info) 756960 Lifetime Pageviews
Average 428.69 Pageviews/Day Now I will be letting it go soon for the new one. I do have a large blog following (worldwide) and its been up since 2008 so its time for a change. I'll be listing on Etsy today and my blog and my new site. Its just not even close to being up and running today so here is a sneak look see. I still haven't come close to shooting all the vintage. We shot unrealistic amounts of clothing I'm still exhausted. I'd like the new shop to be fully working by the time my couture collection comes out May 21st- So I will be listing some bed jackets and smaller things on Etsy today and contact me if you want to buy direct from the blog. xo BQ
Hi everyone! It's about 8 a.m. the team should be arriving any minute for the shoot today. This is a product shoot. I'm getting super excited.....I've been working my little fluffy tail off bring you all something new that I will be revealing hopefully Sunday ;))). Today will be my specialty a boudoir fest. So check for teasers on the blog-tonight Just keep checking the blog contact me if you want to buy something and I will do my reveal sometime Sunday. Have a great weekend!
I might want to add this is not an art-shoot or "so called art shoot". I'm saving that for my show! My friend from Paris will be shooting backstage and their will be a video as well. This is about selling clothing/showing clothing and I will be starting my new online format. It will take a bit longer to list than normal. I'll put up a photo the night of the shoot so check back. The new BQ luxury couture will be out May 21st and is higher end than the one of kind pieces Im listing on Friday. So if you're looking for less expensive Boudoir Queen This weekend would be the time.
Hi everyone, My blog will be dark until Saturday night or Sunday morning. I am shooting items this week that will not be in my show. I could literally sell out of everything in one day so it will be everything I can do to not show photo's of the new collection until May 21st. I am listing several gorgeous pieces all "new" and divine. My show has a very specific theme so these pieces are wonderful they just don't fit the theme of the collection and there are several vintage pieces.Many pieces Ive been wanting to photograph for awhile now. More bed jackets and Cami's I just can't keep in stock when I make them. I basically sell direct now on my www.theboudoirqueen site. I will be updating my big cartel with the new items -same check out as ETSY. I of course will post on all my online media and blog. Many have already asked to pre buy so if you want to be on that list email me before Friday because they will probably sell before I post. Thank you for the great response on my show. despite having a very short time to work on this.....I think everyone will like the theme and of course Mark will be mixing a great soundtrack for the show. Im pulling an all nighter tonight Shannon and I are working from 6 to who knows when! Cheers xo BQ
