EASTER PARADE on 5TH Avenue

Ale B MAKEUP was on 5th Avenue with her FASCINATOR hats.

Her philosophy…….LOVE WHO YOU ARE………..with her make-up line.

KEEP IT SIMPLE.  KEEP IT HEALTHY.  KEEP IT YOU.

EASTER PARADE on 5th Avenue

There were several thousand HATS today in the EASTER PARADE………walking down 5th Avenue.

She was FAB.  The hat……..the outfit….. the smile………..

EASTER EGGS • Victorian Ladies

My new friend Judy is my muse for these ladies…..one is all dolled up for the races at Ascot.  Another is off to tea at the Ritz.

My friend Teddy came to my studio for a “play date”.

She was my stylist for these fashionable ladies……..one of which is in DRAG!

A bit dour………her beau left her for another!
