American Duchess t-shirt bran has been honored with the "Stylish Blog Award" by The Dreamstress!

I've confused my own self, LOL, but head on over to that other blog with the same name and have a looksey :-) You can still read these incredibly mundane 10 things about me, though...

10 Things About Lil' Duchie:

1. When I was in High School I dressed like a boy and wore a lot of necklaces
2. I've been competition-level horseback riding since about age 12, but have never owned or even leased a horse.
3. I have no particular favorite color - it changes, like my mood :-)
4. I survived a rigorous Illustration program at University, and am a professional artist.
5. I'm utterly and completely in love with my Taiwan dog "Avi."
6. I started costuming in 2003-ish - me, the girl who swore she'd never wear a dress, not even to her own wedding!
7. I have incredible anxiety about social events
8. I once took an independent study class in biology, and self-taught my own self ornithological taxidermy.
9. I often think in an English accent - too much BBC for me (can never get enough!)
10. Julie Andrews is my all-time favorite cinema heroine.


  1. Congratulations!

    (...but taxidermy? I'm impressed!)

  2. Congratulations! And I echo Madame B - blimey!

  3. it's not as gruesome as it sounds, lol! ...but might explain my strange fascination with feathers...

  4. Yo dawg, I herd you like blog awards so I put an award in your blog so you can have an award while you blog

  5. Is this about that "yo" I randomly dropped in to one of my forum posts, Madame B? I can't help it, I live too close to Oakland!

  6. I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one who thinks in an English accent. Thank you for sharing your beautiful costumes with us!

  7. thanks Jessica! Sometimes everything just sounds so much more plausible, proper, and nice in accent :-)

  8. Now I know I'm in good company for I too think in an English accent.Cannot seem to get it right once the words come out of my mouth though.
