It’s time to start celebrating Marie, the infamous queen remembered for her extravagance, fashion, larger-than-life reputation, and in the end, strength and resolve. This party is the brainchild of Joy at Cupid’s Charm and she has kicked off the celebration with a sale…go check it out! The party idea came about to celebrate the new Stampington special-issue magazine title Marie, which hits newsstands today, and the fact that Joy’s work is in it:
I love any reason for a party (blog or RL), so each day I’m going to add a bit of Marie fun with some of my own kind of flair, haha.
To start, I made a little Marie ATC:
And if it’s a party, then you need a costume! And not just any costume…we should honor Marie properly and dress as her, just like Holly of The Girls Next Door did for her birthday a couple of years ago. Yeah, I’m an unabashed GND fan. ;-) Holly had Trashy Lingerie design this sumptuous & sexy Marie costume for her, and they now offer it for sale…and for today, we’ll pretend we *are* Marie and that money is no object!
(Images of Holly modeling the costume are borrowed from Trashy!)
And here I am, queen for a day! Hahaha!
