More than 15 minutes

Isn't this sad? Seriously. How far are these young women willing to go so they look "perfect" ?? And this girl, Heidi, is more famous for her plastic surgery than for anything else. So... what will she do next to extend her 15 minutes?

The Self magazine cover was shot around the same time as the concert photo. Look how much they digitally altered! It's important for people to know that the people they see on magazine covers aren't real!

Real women have curves!

Why is this so common in the acting and fashion industry??? What kind of example is this setting for women? For little girls?? This is so sad and pathetic. Makes me sick.
This is what REAL women look like! Curvy and amazing!

Resident bad girl!

Recently I experienced a bit of negativity from a SMALL handful of local ladies who seem to think that taking photos of beautiful women is... well... not all that good for Nelsonville. Apparently, me wanting to sell dresses, corsets and hold bellydancing lessons here is a bit to much for them. At first I was shocked - because everything I do is about empowerment and creating love for ones self. And then I was angered, and resigned from the committees I was helping out on. After all, why help them out???

Now a bit of time has passed and my feelings have changed dramatically. Their negativity is funny. It humors me.

Delish hasn't even been built and it's already controversial. Most of theses women haven't seen a bellydancing class and yet they think it's dirty. And I really don't know how many of these (ahem!) prudish women have even seen my photographs... but come on! Since when are corsets and 50's dresses a bad thing? Since when is taking gorgeous photos of women such a negative act? Why am I so wrong ... just for wanting to give women a space to come, shop, talk, and engage in activities that make them feel beautiful??

I love this town and plan to be here for as long as I possibly can. Their opinions really don't matter... not in the long run, anyways. Most successful businesses have faced some type of obstacle. And if everyone lived their life just to please others, then no one would really be living their own lives. Right??

My new attitude is: If you can't join them, beat them!
And now that I know I'm supposed to be controversial, it actually frees me. I don't have to walk around trying to please these certain people - cause there's no pleasing them. Instead, I'm going to do what I want to do.

There's something devilishly freeing about being the resident bad girl.

I'll keep you posted.

I love the Victoria Secret Models. LOVE LOVE LOVE them! Love their curves!

And even them... and they're definitely pretty thin, are considered curvy and more "full" than a typical model.

These women look more like women... and not stick figures. Yay Angels!

More things I ordered for the new store

I like little pieces like these earrings.

Dresses for the new store - DELISH!

We're slowly getting in inventory. Yes, we'll carry some lingerie, but I love the corsets, burlesque attire, rockabilly dresses/skirts, and cute tops. I'm adding lots of vintage finds, and eventually shoes and jackets.
Look for our grand opening sale this summer! If you would like to come in and take our survey and let us know what you'd like for us to carry, PLEASE DO!!!
