Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s Cecylia in a Kathryn Beker creation at the Launch. Some of you commented in this post that I was ‘fearless’ with fashion because of my eclectic style combinations. Thank you for inspiring me to be more fearless! Last year I had the opportunity to style a photo shoot with Lisa Frieling and Kathryn Beker (see my styling portfolio here). Since then, that stunning ostrich clad corset has been haunting me. In a romantic, exotic and nostalgic way. No, not a flash-back from Black Swan.

Thank you Kathryn for letting me wear your amazing corset. You can check out more of her pieces here. Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day! I just want to take this opportunity to tell you how much I adore each and every one of you. Thank you for taking the time to read, comment, and ponder with me. Your comments bring me so many smiles, thoughts and laughs. How I hope to meet you all one day!

And finally, to the man of my dreams. No, not the chihuahua. The real man. My husband is the best gift I have ever received from God. My best friend, mentor, partner-in-(fashion)-crime, photographer, and the one I adore with all of my heart. I am nothing without him. You know how people say that ‘behind every great man is a great woman?’ Well in my case ‘behind is a much greater Mr Cecylia!’ :)
