Back to back postings about my 11 year old nephew and his mannequin muse Martinique. Woo hoo!!! As I was writing up yesterday's posting, I received five new Martinique photos and couldn't wait to share them. But before I do, it's with a bit of hesitation that I write this next part. I've touched on this once previously and I'm mentioning it again now as I hope it will make you appreciate his talent and perseverance even more. My nephew has been struggling with an especially nasty illness for about the last six years. It comes and goes but it's presence lingers. I've referred to it as the bad bunnies and will continue to do so. Those bunnies have been especially bad of late and they're trying to nibble away at him and his creativity. Very, very bad bunnies. I don't mean to make light of his situation and the gravity of it by assigning such a silly name but somehow it's easier to type bad bunnies than the real illness. So when those darn bunnies are up to no good, my nephew finds joy and light in creating outfits for Martinique and his favorite place to shop is Forever 21. My sister being the great mom she is happily takes her son to a women's clothing store and let's him get a number of items from time to time. Bravo sis! I said it yesterday and I'll say it again here.... putting it out there to the blog-o-sphere, I want Martinique to be the face of Forever 21. I want her to be in their catalogs as styled by my nephew. I want her to receive at least 30 new outfits per month. Are you listening cooperate Forever 21? We'll be awaiting your response.....
I received five separate emails yesterday each other beginning with a single letter.
Here goes the first one titled "C".
The second image was titled "U".
The third was labeled "T".
And the forth was titled "E".
And the last was given an "!".
I will absolutely call that CUTE! Cute, chic, wonderful, creative, bright, bold, and full of talent--- that's my nephew.
Bad bunnies be gone!
Thanks everyone for your nice comments and messages about my nephew.
