Update-Candace Michelle Fashion Designs

Okay so as we speak right now. I'm currently working on my second dress, close to finishing the first dress. I'm putting the finishing touches on the dress and it will be up for sale around the end of the next week. The second dress I'm currently working on is very 50s. When I mean 50s, I mean housewife 1950s, It's really cute and I can't wait to show it to you. It's in the beginning stages, I have yet to sew it since I just cut out the fabric last night. I might make a headband to go with I'm not entirely sure yet, and a handbag to go with it.

The third dress will be cut today and will be sewn within the next couple of days, it'll be 70s inspired. After that either a LBD (Little Black Dress) or a jumpsuit. I haven't decided yet. I will keep you updated. Ciao for now!

Kate Sparkles!

Officially a Duchess, but most like to call her Princess (like I do) was looking ever so beautiful tonight at the 10th anniversay of ARK (Absolute Return for Kids). Her handsome husband Prince William (officially a Duke but we like to stick to Prince, lol) was seeing sparkles before his eyes as his beautiful wife, Kate wore this AMAZING Jenny Packham Swarovski crystal gown and shoes from LK Bennett both favorites among the Middleton ladies. This is the first social outing in the public eye since. They were seen a few days ago at the Epsom Derby, but that doesn't count. It wasn't official :-) Kate didn't fail to impress. And I myself am speechless. If you followed the 29 Days of Kate Middleton you would have seen that she doesn't do a lot of crazy colors or prints and hardly any sparkle can be seen in her wardrobe. That's why I'm speechless! lol. And her arms are bare which she doesn't show often, another speechless moment, she looks bedazzling and William likes it too! All in favor of sparkling Kate say I! I!!!!

Marilyn Monroe-Sexy Classic

Today is June 1st, which is the birthday of the sexiest blonde bombshell, Marilyn Monroe. She is a sexy classic. Her look, sexy, is a classic look. She couldn't be desexified if she tried. Which she didn't thank God. It was natural, I think it was always in her and she discovered what to do with it. Trying to make Marilyn unsexy is like trying to take out sugar from coffee, you can't do it. She wasn't only sexy, but innocent. This is probably the only female, the only human being on earth that could do sexy-innocent very well. Why? Because it was natural. She had a great figure which we all know, she knew how to carry herself, what to wear (and not wear underneath), but off screen she was vulnerable, insecure, and was still a scare little child. Which came across in her the image she created, Marilyn Monroe, she was still Norma Jean on the inside.

 Her iconic looks are of course the beautiful halter neckline full pleated skirt that she wore in Seven Year Itch, the beautiful pink strapless dress with a big bow and pink gloves in Gentlemen Perfer Blondes and of course the beautiful sew-in sparkly gown that she wore when she sang "Happy Birthday, Mr. President". These 3 dresses signified her as a sex symbol. But don't think that she only wore figure hugging dresses. If you watch Gentlemen Perfer Blondes, the wardrobe for that movie, a lot of the clothing and also on Jane Russell can still be worn today, classic of course. Niagara, The Misfits, and Something's Gotta Give, clothing are also classics. Too many starlets try and copy the look of Marilyn, but most come off too sexy or trying too hard, Marilyn even made casual clothes sexy, she was just natural, from head to toe. And when she died she died, "Forever Young".
