Bardot inspired makeup and fanciful tulle

Tis the wedding season!  With two sample bridesmaid’s tulle skirts to show off and put up in the shop, I thought why not have a little fun doing so?  I stumbled upon this stunning photo of Brigitte Bardot in all of her kitten meow-y-ness, and did my very best attempt to re-create the look.

While taking the photos, I was listening to my favorite lil French playlist and decided to make a super short lookbook vid on the cotton candy tulle skirt.  It basically just gave me an excuse to twirl around in a pink tutu, ham it up for my cats, practice my very best Marilyn Monroe moves, and silently play the mandolin to Quelqu’un M’a dit by Carla Bruni.

Here are the lyrics in case you’d like to join my mandolin cover band:

Both of those fanciful 4-layer skirts (less poufy than my usual skirts) are available in the shop (just click on the pics).

And last but certainly not least, voila!  Here is the final skirt the blushing bride and I decided on for her ‘classy glam’ wedding with a neutral palette and pops of eggplant:

Bisous, toujours.

Oh yes…and this was my headbanging hair after brushing out BigSexyHair Volume Dry Shampoo.  Turns out, it doesn’t brush out.
