The {L}BD……#AtoZChallenge2014

Here’s to Day #12  of the #AtoZChallenge2014

…. The Letter  {L}!

and a Salute to THE {L}ittle Black Dress

aka The {L}BD

Irresistable!  The {L}BD

LBD

CLASSIC LBD

Growing up, it was ingrained in my psyche what every young woman needed to be prepared for that unexpected invitation – a pair of elegant heels and aThe “{L}ittle Black Dress”  or {L}BD. The The “{L}ittle Black Dress” was, and still is, considered essential to a complete wardrobe. Many women and fashion observers believe it a “rule of fashion” that every woman should own a simple, but elegant black dress that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.

Every woman I know has an {L}BD that can be worn with a jacket and pumps for daytime business wear or with more elaborate jewelry, fancy shoes and accessories for an evening affair.

... ala CASUAL

… ala CASUAL

The “{L}ittle Black Dress” is also worn as a sign of belonging and as a sign of individuality, as a way to conceal and as a way to be noticeable. It is the most trusted staple in a woman’s closet.

Sometimes theThe “{L}ittle Black Dress”  has a function other than evening elegance or the daytime boardroom. It has been known to be used by many a femme fatale for the sole purpose of seducing men. And of course, most women have at least one of those in their closets.

{Hello} Audrey ...

{Hello} Audrey …

Now according to the urban dictionary,The “{L}ittle Black Dress”  is the dress that is just a little too short. Just a little too tight. One that hugs curves you never knew you had. One that looks as if it was made for your body; and your body only. One that makes you feel sexy the second you put it on.

…just a {L}ittle Black Something Something

{L}BD with a {L}ittle Fringe....  Yep!.

{L}BD with a {L}ittle Fringe….
Yep!.

It has to be simple. All black, no buttons, no ornamentation. Plain black. The exhibition of this The “{L}ittle Black Dress” is only used for one reason and the woman wearing it knows its full potency by the stare of her target.

Ohhhh LaLa

Ohhhh LaLa

Still, every young woman should own one elegant  “{L}ittle Black Dress”.  The kind that will take you to the boardroom and not someone’s bedroom.

... That's Right!  Luv! The LBD!!!

… That’s Right! Luv! The LBD!!!

You know that you have one!

Day #9  of the #AtoZChallenge2014

The Letter ‘I’

Because of the work that I do, I spend a good deal of my day peering into the eyes of colleagues and clients.   I have found that I have yet to grow weary of the colour – this part of the eye is called the {I}ris-  of the many eyes that I am privy to gaze into.  Lots of years and even more {I}rises later, I have come to be very comfortable looking someone in the {I}rises of anyone willing to make contact.  I’ve also noted that, when I meet someone either for the first time or someone whom I recognize, the first thing that I do is to look them dead square in the {I}ris- because I’ve found that I remember people by their {I}rises.

Here is a peek into the some of the beauty that you can find when you {I} gaze.  *I’ve used pictures of ‘Little Ones’ because it is my hope that the pix have not been retouched*

The Word….

{H}appiness is an easy enough concept to grasp, but a truly elusive state to sustain.

{H}appiness is: {H}opeful.  {H}onest.  {H}uge. {H}ealthy.

{H}eartfelt.  {H}onor.  {H}umble.  {H}ospitable. {H}ypnotic.

Personal.

 

  Remember THIS  {H}appy Song!!

 

I hope that you fill your days with {H}appy.

The {G}entlemanly way to eat a {G}loriously, {G}ooey cupcakes … #AtoZChallenge2014

Good Morning Luv-lies,

Day #7  of the #AtoZChallenge2014

Today’s letter is  *drumroll puh-leez*

The Letter ‘G’

 I really enjoy a decadent cupcake.  You know.  One that is moist, amazing on the eyes, fun and whimsical and, of course flavorful.

I’m not picky when it comes to the topping.   Fondant.  Buttercream.  Whip Cream.  Nothing at all {although this is not as fun as eating them with a topping}.

I luv ’em!

… the challenge.  eating one without your nose & fingers becoming part of the meal.  Right?.

The arrival finally  of the warm days of spring is a signal for me that the ‘Pastry Season’ is underway.  Yessssss! *fist pump*

I wish that I had this slightly {G}oofy, but effective, demonstration long before now.

I could have been eating my {G}loriously, {G}ooey cupcakes like a {G}entleman without fretting about buttercream on my LBD 

 

…. it works for .Pink cupcakes, too ….

Tomorrow …. The Letter ‘H’
