Sucre Féerique

Fairy Tale

A police officer walked by me as I was crouched down behind the LANCÔME makeup counter (where I make women more beautiful daily) and asks me what I'm doing as I am reading a text from my hunky Aussie boyfriend, noticing he affectionately calls me "tinkerbell" so I look up at the cop and say "I am a fairy and I'm doing secret fairy things that are very mischievous," which immediately distracted him into tripping and falling over the counter and knocking things down. Of course I giggled and he'll swear to you that I blew pixie dust his way. Then as usual, I thought of fashion, and that I haven't seen any cool designer labels come out with any fairy trends recently so I'd just have to do some research of my own and find some inspiring images.

I am a fairy, see?

I'm not really a fan of this, although it may be inspirational for prints

Balmain Spring RTW 2009 - My little pixie heart started humming when I saw these!

perfect. just perfect.

Just when I thought it couldn't get better I saw this dress and literally took my breath away.
I've never seen anything on the runway that was remotely close to my idea of pretty until I saw these dresses.

I found this book very inspiring, also.
