The King of Bling: Liberace


Maybe I'm just a sucker for hot pants, but as long time readers know I'm fan of Liberace. So I was pretty happy to come across news that the uber-"King of Bling" is coming back. Big time (as Kath would say):

"...look for Liberace in new places. His sequined self is plastered on postcards, bumper stickers, T-shirts, tote bags, wallets, and a book of paper cutouts called "Liberace: Your Personal Fashion Consultant" that has sold 10,000 copies. Online, fans can buy Liberace rings, Christmas ornaments, teddy bears, shot glasses, thimbles, and even a $1,600 Swarovski crystal miniature grand piano." READ the rest here.
Personally, I am very excited about the Liberace line of sneakers (image left). I can easily imagine a pair of these on Jean-Yves Thibaudet. Then again I have had a fever for the past 3 days. Anyhoo, you find these and other bling things at the Liberace Foundation's online shop here.

Happy shopping.

This is so great! My company is currently working with the Liberace Foundation in developing a line of candles. One is already out and it's called: Liberace - Patron Saint of Dazzling Moms. The second one is in the works and hopes to be even better than the first! you can find it on www.qassa.com under prayer candles.
