mommie-dearest Sprinkles and Booze

It’s that magical time of year, where we are getting glimpses of Spring. Mother nature can be rather testy this time of year. What better mother to depict Spring than Mommie Dearest.

Before you think I am some dark and twisted person, let me explain myself. Joan Crawford, one of Hollywood’s greatest stars, was defined as a sadistic control freak in the film Mommie Dearest. The first time I saw Mommie Dearest, I was at a youth group sleepover during Halloween. I was very confused as to why someone that fabulous would be so horrible to her children. It was terrifying and puzzling (and still is). Mommie Dearest, like the Spring, can be beautiful and nurturing one moment, and a complete bitch of a storm the next.

To say Faye Dunaway’s performance as Joan Crawford is over-the-top is an understatement. To match the great performance, I went completely over-the-top with this style board. I was itching to have a floral/gold girly party. Don’t be surprised if I do a styled shoot inspired by this board. I am kind of in love with it. I thought it would be ideal to recreate Christina Crawford‘s birthday party scene but give it a modern twist.

My style board includes everything for the perfect Mommie Dearest spring party. From an eyebrow brush for the perfect eyebrows to colorful macaroons. The board also features a beautiful sequin hanger from Pearls and Pastries and confetti from The Confetti Bar. Check, check it!

What do you guys think? Are you feeling the insane amount of pink patterns with hints of gold? What celebrity kids do you think will be writing tell-all books in 20 years?

Stay sexy Gotham!
