It has sadly been an eternity since I've posted about my nephew and his mannequin muse Martinique. For those of you who are new to my site or if you'd like a refresher than just click here to get all caught up. As a super quick reminder--- my nephew is what I'd like to call glamor-focused meaning he's well versed in the fine art of fabulousness meaning he's a mega fashion designer in training. He'll take stray bits of fabric mix with pieces from his favorite store, Forever 21, and create perfectly styled outfits on Martinique, snap a photo, and then send me the results.... all to my great pleasure. It's nearly impossible to wipe the smile off my face after I see one of his creations.
He's had a busy summer and going to a new school this year has meant a complete lack of any new photos. :( I do have a fun story relayed by my sister which is pretty darn good. Picking him up from a friend's house the other day, my nephew climbed in the car, and with pointed sincerity asked my sister, "What are your three favorite trends?" Her reaction was probably the same as most peoples, "Ahhhhhh..... well...... I need to think that over. What are yours?" Without missing a beat he replied, "Shrunken jackets, high-waisted skirts, and ankle boots" Snap, snap, snap. I mean really..... does it get any better than that?
Since I just learned how to make a .gif, I decided to create a tribute to my nephew and his great styling. Hope you'll enjoy.
My readers Joe and Rick were just in New Orleans for southern Decadence and they spotted what looks like Martinique's Louisianan cousin. :)
Thanks Joe and Rick for the photo and thanks to all of you who email and ask about my talented nephew. :) Hopefully new photos coming soon.
