While the new Mrs. Urban (OH, how I love that last name) is off somewhere honeymooning (and apparently beforehand, moonlighting), I’ve been working away on the Nicole camisole.

I use the term *camisole* lightly – this is probably going to be worn more as a vest over another sheer shirt – or any variety of other shirts. I also plan on wearing it solo – so I’ve made its lacey-ness more suggestive than revealing.

I love the way this is turning out – it is not a Victorian romp – more like a modern feminine stroll that might work for the night out or for the street. Which is exactly how I have been directing my wardrobe – I want it to have a dual nature – depending on what you pair it with, it can go day to night quite easily. Which is what a Working Girl without a battalion of stylists needs – wearable, usable, knitted clothes.

But if I could, I would certianly want to have Ms. Kidman’s wardrobe – almost everytime I see her, she’s wearing something I would absolutely love to have. From her award show frocks to her public appearances, she really sets a modern, feminine tone that is rarely seen elsewhere.

My whimsical nod to her stylings remains to be finished – I thought it would be done this weekend, but something else got in the way…

DSL!
With a bang – if you can believe it, I’ve had dial-up all this time because I wanted to see what my design work for clients looked like at that speed. But Lorri – it’s a brand new day…
