Magnificent Monday: Kim Carnes

Magnificent Monday

This lovely singer is perhaps best known for the song Bette Davis Eyes which is particularly iconic. Her distinct “raspy” vocal style makes her work very recognizable. Always fashionable, she has an enviable look that is easy to draw inspiration from.

Fantastical Friday: Bewitching Fashion

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

Today’s outfit idea is inspired by Mother Nature with whimsical earth tones & flair. You might be wondering why this isn’t a sultry date night post, but much of modern witchcraft comes from Earth-centered traditions. The seasons hold a certain amount of magick & this particular ensemble manifests some of the lighthearted, free spirit that is so commonly associated with this time of year. I, for one, enjoy unleashing my inner child (so to speak) & a good frolic is good for the soul. 😉 Everything in this post was found at Amazon, which, I’m sure you’re aware, has an amazing selection of pretty much everything. 😀

Magnificent Monday: Linda Hamilton

Magnificent Monday

Linda shaped my early life in her role as Sarah Connor, as she evolved from a simple waitress to a determined survivor. My mother particularly identified with this character too, seeing her as something of the ultimate mother consumed with the future of her child. Naturally we just have to ignore the paradox of it all & of course the special effects are not up to par with a modern expectation, but when I was 5 it blew me away. In her real life sh is also a mother.

Her style is sophisticated & charming, easily causing fashion envy in the casual observer, lol. So I was shopping around at Tidebuy & found a few selections that remind me of this beautiful woman. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. 😉

Sometimes I want a whimsical ensemble without getting into character. For those of you who haven’t read any Forgotten Realms books, or gamed in that setting, Toril is the name of the world it is centered on. If you’ve been following me for any length of time then you know how much I enjoy a good fantasy novel as well as role play. Table top or LARP, it hardly matters which, I have a great time. So today I did a bit of shopping around at Amazon & found a few wondrous selections that I am sure to enjoy when in a mood for all things fantastical. 😉

Magnificent Monday: Karen Carpenter

Magnificent Monday

She was a lesson to everyone about the dangers of eating disorders. One of the first stars known to have left this world due to anorexia which changed the nature of our conversations relating to anorexia & bulimia. Karen’s rigid dieting began shortly after The Carpenters initial recordings & the world saw her obsession grow out of control. While this is a terrible, terrible situation to have happened I think it’s also important to remember her in a positive light as well.

Her legendary vocals are still with us today & learning from her tragedy has brought a brighter future into the lives of others. Today’s jewelry selections were both inspired by her personal style & the era in which she lived. All of these treasures were found within the wonderfully eclectic selections from OASAP.

Fantastical Friday: Stylish Armor

Fantastical FridayDragon clip art attribution link

Armor selection can be difficult for a good character, even if you plan a DIY. Sometimes you just have to know someone who makes great pieces (if you do, I could use an introduction LOL). I found a few pieces that could easily coordinate well with a warrior or squire style, but as per usual I had a lot of difficulty tracking down many options with this sort of item. I found all of these pieces at Amazon & while some may be a bit more expensive than I usually like showcase about there is a lot of quality & craftsmanship that goes into the higher quality pieces. Game on! 😀

2) Womans Leather Studded Bracers Vambraces Armguards Cosplay LARP Steampunk – Black ($37.99)

Magnificent Monday: Minnie Riperton

Magnificent Monday

While she passed away before I was born, breast cancer (really all cancer) has stolen too many of our greats, the impact of this amazing vocalist on my life & other connoisseurs of music cannot be denied. I also find it interesting that she came from a big family, the youngest of 8 children, as I’m 2 of 7 (my Borg designation, LOL). Minnie’s interest in the arts began with ballet & modern dance, her parents noticed her obvious vocal ability & encouraged her to progress in that direction.  She is undeniably beautiful & though it’s possible that many have not thought of her as a style icon she had a certain way about her that was magnetic.

For this post I have chosen to mostly focus on Minnie’s hair embellishments, though I have included a few pairs of earrings as well. I hope you are as inspired by this stunning icon as I am. 😉 My selections today come from one of my favorite shops, Jolly Chic.

Riperton Inspired1) Four Pieces Imitation Pearl Bridal Hair Pins ($3.99)
2) Exquisite One Piece Imitation Pearl Hair Pin ($5.99)
