Saturday Life [24.10.15]: Drag Make-Up, Armour & Calendar Girls :)


Hi All!

I have had the most incredible week, so full of exciting and amazing things! The first thing I want to talk about is the beautiful calendar above!! This is an amazing calendar, from Mrs.Weaver’s Finest Unmentionables, is full of real and beautiful women, in support of the Canadian Breast Cancer Society! Amazing! And I’m so excited to announce that it will soon be available in the Emerald Studio Etsy Store! Make sure you head over to Karin’s blog to read all about the amazing process of making this calendar ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

Now back to my week!

It started out pretty amazing with a class on drag make-up- for those days when your regular foundation-mascara routine is just not enough ๐Ÿ™‚

Then in the evening the beautiful Mrs.Weaver and I put on our corsets and headed to another evening of Burlesque, but that evening we got to show off our wears ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Then it was off the next morning for a very special meeting and future collaboration! What could make a regular corset even more amazing and exciting?

Adding armour to the mix of course! We met with a very talented armourer and talked about all the exciting possibilities mixing corsetry with armour! I am so excited to see the future of this collaboration!!

 

Then we had a relaxing mid week- talking all things bras and bra draft- never too far from tea & chocolate.

This was also a great opportunity to make up a beautiful lacy mastectomy bra for our upcoming expos! ๐Ÿ™‚ Mastectomy bras should really only come in beautiful options ๐Ÿ™‚

 

And so many women agreed with our idea of beautiful mastectomy wear at Bra-Day in Calgary, an evening of all things breast cancer and reconstruction. What a great evening!

And now we are off to even more events to show our beautiful wears ๐Ÿ™‚ We will be at the Calgary Body Soul & Spirit Expo all weekend!! So if you’re in the area feel free to stop in for a chat!

It has really been the fullest and most phenomenal week! I can’t wait for all the amazing things this week to come! ๐Ÿ™‚ If you are on Instagram you can always check out mine and mrs.weaver’s happening by following us @theemeraldstudio & @mrsweaversfinest and with our #emeraldweaverproject!

Hope you’re all having a fantastic week ๐Ÿ™‚ Let me know all about it in the comments!

Saturday Life [17.10.15]: Friends, Calgary & Burlesque!


Hi All!

Wow this has been quite a week! Really an overwhelming week, and it went by so fast! I started my week, just getting home from camping in Pennsylvania and now I’ve ended it in Calgary! What a ride!

After getting home from camping, of course I couldn’t just stay put, I had to head to the city to meet up with two good bra friends ๐Ÿ™‚

 

It was a day full of fabric, and chatting over drinks on a patio in the sun ๐Ÿ™‚ With some super talented bra-makers:

Julia of Ellesmere lingerie– a new indie lingerie designer!

&

Holly of Intimate Underpinnings– a custom bra-maker from Portland!

Love you girls! ๐Ÿ™‚

Then the middle part of my week consisted of some turkey eating & visiting with family for our Canadian Thanksgiving, but mostly a panicked flurry of corset sewing and prep for my big trip!!

And before I knew it I was in the airport waiting to board my flight! Watch out Calgary- because Emerald Erin is coming to town!!

And of course the raison d’รชtre in Calgary is of course the most fabulous….

Karin of Mrs.Weaver’s Finest!!

the most amazing hostess & friend a girl could ask for! -this was my morning view, sipping my tea ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve hardly been in Calgary for 48 hours and we’ve already been hard at work! (I love my job!) Sharing bra theory, corset makes, inspiration, plans for the future!

Karin has so much amazing happening in her life & business right now- such an inspiration! And I’m so happy to be a part of it all!! And you will all be part of it too!!

And of course there isn’t a better way to kick off our visit than a burlesque show from the Calgary International Burlesque Festival last night!! all I can say is WOW!! there are no words for how much I enjoyed this show! just amazing!!

And we get to go again tonight for the Saturday Night Cabaret!! And with a booth to show off our custom corsets! So if you would like to come out and see us- we’ll be there!! ๐Ÿ™‚
