Here I am having countless tea parties with one of my best friends, and I fail to notice she has the cutest stuff right under my nose! Seriously I love each piece! She is a little to quiet about it, because I would have flipped sooner had I known. When you are working hard on your own art, sometimes you miss out on others. I promote for so many cute brands, my friends, my own, but often forget about the closest ones! It bothers me is that I make so much stuff for strangers, and customers, and my mom, tia, grandma, boyfriend, whatever….. are walking around without the baddest custom threads on. No Way! I have always been bad at prioritizing but it is never too late! Ya Know, When you get busy you just dive in, and try to make it all work. So I am dedicating this post to the fabulous creations of My girl Lissette, and her line Madame X. Named after the famous painting. I chose the pieces that really fit into my style, but check out her storenvy to fall in love with one of her pretty creations. Buying from small business and from artists who create things with their own two hands, is so much more beneficial to the world then mass produced clones. So if you want magical vibes, I promise you Madame X will deliver.
Madame X – An Apparel Affair
What I love about her pieces is they are simple enough to wear with almost anything, but fun, and far from basic. The sizes and lenghts are al perfect too, they fall just right! How Darling is this Handmade baby blue, Pastel Pearl, Macaroon necklace! It is nice and long and I love the colors! My other obsession is this Pink Magic Star Necklace! It looks even better on and really sparkles, but its also so simple and girly. I bought the earrings too! Available at: http://www.storenvy.com/stores/173886-madame-x-an-apparel-affairI styled the shoot, like always, with lots of accessories, and do my own makeup! I mixed her collection with mine for some pastel puuuurfection. The mint powder puff ping, and beauty brooches are up on my shop. Macymarie.storenvy.com. I also made the adorable cotton candy rainbow shawl. I have this vintage marabou one that I treasure, so I made a pattern from it to create this one. When I get a hang of the cost and work to make them, I plan to sell a few limited edition ones on my shop. The top, if you can call it one, LOL, is vintage as well. Go to thrift stores! They are filled with treasures like this! This color combo of pastels is my favorite, pink, mint, and baby blues forever! I tend to lean towards gold too, guess I’m just gaudy like that. But Look how pretty! Been Dolling around in this look for days. The Brocade Pastel with Gold on the sleep mask is so pretty together! The matching Antoinette Choker is also to die for. Only a few left so check it out. I wear the star necklace with everything! Perfect layering necklace, and so light! Tickle Me Pink. The beauty brooches are coming soon! Not only am I obsessed with layering pins on jackets, but I am also with beauty shop nostalgia! I have been obsessed with lipstick, nail polishes, perfume bottles, brush mirror sets, powder puffs, eyeliner, mascara, and other things of that nature…since I was a kid. The sight of vintage beauty ads, old movies, and images of Vanity’s just give me the chills! The whole ritual of dolling up, curls, makeup, dancing in your lingerie, its what makes us girls! No I really love it, my favorite part of the day or night, never gets old. So I had to make these babes. I made some fun summer ones too. Baked, hand painted, and decorated by me! I also scored this adorable 6o’s pastel baby doll dress, I wear it out I don’t care. Pacify Her, Now to drink something sparkly and pink like my soul! My closet is Fifty Shades of Pink right meow. What to wear first.MY new PINK YRU & Nikki Lipstick Shoes fit perfectly into my life! Get some if you can they are Spice girls REALNESS! HEART Eyes forever! Wear with ruffle socks! Eat lollipops, and throw a tantrum in them! Have a Pity Party!I’m laying in a pile of my favorite colors right now! Listening to CRYBABY! I love the illustrations, and the story. 99 bobby pins and I can’t find one! Pin Up Girl problems. PUFF PUFF PASS TELL. Her heart’s bigger than her body. Her Name is CRYBABY. I am a big crybaby! When I first heard the album I was so in love, so fun to sing and dance to. I like all the songs so I had to buy the album. Plus tells a story and the booklet is to die for. Illustrated by Chloe Tersigini. Below is one of them. So, I have had this adorable little pink metallic leather jacket for years now, and did not know what to paint on it until that song came on. I grabbed a brush, some white paint, and free handed it. Then I thought of my favorite fashion club crier from DARIA, Stacey! Had to paint her on the back but with a pastel makeover. Painting her also made me think of how cute those bobble hair ties she wore are. Inspired, I went out and bought tons of them at the beauty supply shop. Got some more hair clips too NEVER ENOUGH! I am a 90s girl. BTW, Giving them out with purchases too! Then I put on some cherries on her for a personal and a rockabilly twist, then some jeweled tears. This cutie is available on my shop MEOW! Macymarie.storenvy.com She cried until she then could see. That she wasn’t even worthy of All her love and ABCs. So she spelt fuck you in 123! I also went back to pink, because I feel like I should have been born with this color! Don’t see the world in black n white, see it in shades of pink. Support local music, and small business! Shop from artists, designers, your friends, work together and make magic, make love. Make Up your own mind, and let your conscious be your guide. Trust in yourself. Wear whatever you like, and always be you! Be good to yourself and see the light in everybody! Be grateful for what you have and believe in whats to come. Don’t Judge, or try to change people, love them for who they are. Have empathy and help each other grow but Don’t grow up it’s a trap!
Rub a dub dub Sushi In the tub. My boyfriend took me out on a Japanese Market Date and I picked up a pre made sushi plate, and a bottle of cold pink sake. (It cost under 10 dollars. The bottle was more then the sushi, so if you brew some tea it would be even cheaper, and healthier. You can pick up vegan sushi to go too or make your own.) I put it on a pretty plate and decorated with little cute trinkets that make me happy. (I collect things that steal my heart and keep them in boxes or out, for when I need them so I don’t have to go out and buy stuff all the time. Casual Thrifting forever!) Then I lit some candles, poured myself some sake and slipped into my lovely bath. This Picture went crazy on Tumblr so many re posts and all sorts of comments. From wow how fancy, to goals, gross, or my favorite” I want to push it all in the tub, lol.” It really shows judgement and perspective, on something as simple and fun as relaxing after work. People go crazy. If it’s not for you don’t do it, carry on. If it Is, Treat yourself to a cheap mermaid bath. (I don’t take baths often, but when I do, I make them magical. Why Not?) I don’t fall into any routine, I try to make all my experiences in this life beautiful. Plus It is not very expensive or hard! Just a little decorating. It is second nature to me now. Another great tip! Find a good friend who makes bath soaks! One of my besties made me this Glittery rose balancing one, that I absolutely love. (We make each other presents and recycle the containers back n forth.)Or go make your own, there are so many great recipes online.You don’t have to give in to the system, its cheaper, and you know exactly what you are getting. If you can afford it, or long overdue a little spoiling for yourself! Go To Lush! I fucking love that place, the one at UTC mall is the best! Every babe there. Here Is the Mermaid Bath Combo, for a sparkly golden blue bath!Here is a sex bomb sprinkled with Fresh Rose Petals. Bat Your Lashes
When I first found this white leather moto jacket I immediately thought of Holli Would from Cool World. A bombshell badass in all white, with her gogo boots riding on a white motorcycle. So I painted her on the back. I was obsessed with her! Still am. I love the way she talks,moves, and her attitude! The way she takes of her gloves. Her Bedroom, glamorous outfits, curves, dancing, obsession with Marlin Monroe and Old Hollywood! So seductive, and bad whats not to love,such a fun character. Femme Fatale Holli Would If She Could…..And She Will! Every illustration and scene in the film is eye candy, Art. So dark, twisted, and Cool! I loved the city background art as much as the characters! But each obscure character has its own charm and personality. So I had to paint some of them on the leather as well.
Lets Make Love. I painted on the flames and studded the cuff. Then I started to freehand all the characters and flash art. It took hours and layers of paint for this Baby. Also Layers of glitter and mod podge. It already sold, and I miss it so much! Pink Pentagram earrings by Marina Fini. Sparkly Sid Lock n Chain and powder puff ring on my shop. Macymarie.storenvy.com.

I also made the shoes, rings, nails, and bindi. All available at my shop!. Macymarie.storenvy.com. The dress and earrings and sparkly hand sewn shawl are all are vintage, Necklace Betsey Johnson. The gift shop shell anklet goes with me everywhere. I really love this perfect lace dress, I’m thinking of making my own version of them for my shop soon! They fit so good. With pretty handmade ribbon ties. What better is there to do when your blue than shop! I really had to have this phone tho. If you want one its Valfre. I love her art, and the concept of this phone is genius. Shell Phone, Shellfies, and it looks like you are listening to the ocean when you are on it. It was the antenna that sold me tho. How Cute! People really turn there heads when they see it, and its so much fun. Everything I ever buy is second hand or from my designer friends, but sometime KAWAII purchases that warm the heart are worth every penny. It always inspires me and I design entire looks around it, haha. It inspired me to make these mermaid french tips! And ever since I discovered Boopsie Daisy and bought her “Sea How Cute I Am” print I’ve gone full mermaid. LOL. The Little Chibi Moon Nail is http://nailcart.tumblr.com/ Look at this stuff

A rock ‘n’ roll nurse, goin’ into my head October is going by way too fast and I haven’t dressed up nearly enough. So today I went with a twisted nurse costume. I decorated the hat and leggings to my liking, and used a candy blood bag as a garter. I also made the little blood heart vile. The dress is vintage, and shoe YRU. So,Dressing up is fun and gets people in good spirit, so I go with it and inspire fun. I work at a popular record store-thrift store, with a huge costume section, so…. full time dress up! I had a blast helping people all day with their costume ideas, and Halloween dreams. I also made a Nurse playlist, because I go Hard. Seriously I live for dress up and tunes. So here it is:
