Christmas with Project Runway Allstars Casanova

Without a doubt Christmas is my all time favorite holiday!  Great food, goodies galore and oh yes - presents!  What's not to love???  So I was delighted when Casanova of Project Runway Allstars called weeks ago, asking if I would be interested in fluffing up his home with some Christmas decorations! They were also the backdrop for two big media interviews for him.  So you may see them when those interviews are published and broadcast as well.

From the start, I knew I had to do a 'tree dress'!  Luckily Casanova already had a form, which I layered in protective material to adhere the branches to.  I loved it, he loved it!  I brought along a few vintage pins and necklaces to adorn it with.  Top top it off, I lit that baby up with little white Christmas lights.

Like many, I  knew Casanova from Project Runway and knew it would be a blast.  Largely due to is infectious laugh and enthusiastic personality.  I enjoyed hearing some behind the scenes quips about the challenges.  

My goal by the end of the day - other than him being pleased with the results was to get him in the boa!

hope you all enjoyed your Christmas as well and spent quality time with family and caought up on some much needed rest!  

And yay! I got my boa shot!

Note: The photos aren't the best, but we had a whole lot of fun!

Emerald eyes are shining...

Pantone today announced Emerald as the Color of the Year for 2013. Opposite the color wheel from 2012's Color of the Year, Tangerine Tango, which provided an energy boost to recharge and move forward, Emerald enhances the sense of well-being further by inspiring insight, as well as promoting balance and harmony, according to Pantone.


“Green is the most abundant hue in nature – the human eye sees more green than any other color in the spectrum,” said Leatrice Eiseman,executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “As it has throughout history, multifaceted Emerald continues to sparkle and fascinate. Symbolically, Emerald brings a sense of clarity, renewal and rejuvenation, which is so important in today’s complex world. This powerful and universally appealing tone translates easily to both fashion and home interiors.”
