“I have been crystal-gazing, Headmaster,’ said Professor Trelawney, in her mistiest, most faraway voice, ‘and to my astonishment, I saw myself abandoning my solitary luncheon and coming to join you. Who am I to refuse the prompting of fate?” And on that note, I found myself feeling the need to blog, and who am I to refuse the promptings of fate?! I’ve been working on my releases for Jewelry Fair (only a few days away) and liked what I was wearing, and embellished a bit. I have been astonished by the creativity and skill I’m witnessing of late, and frankly a wee bit overwhelmed! There is that constant need to ‘keep-up’ as it were. So rather than worry about it, I started playing. I saw the dress that I’m wearing in a weekly event, and went looking for it after the fact. I’m not certain ‘why’ I like this dress. It may be the oh so delicate color and shading that I like. I paired it with a salmon colored sweater from Jane, oh she of the amazing mesh skills. This sweater is not mesh, but with its elongated sleeve, it feels retro modern to me. It also works well with the dress. The amazing bag from FIR & MNA is just big and carries all my virtual stuff (and was an incredible FLF bargain). I need this bag in RL actually. I decided to keep my legs bare – we are after all in that twilight time between summer and the dream of fall, so the day is warm, but I need a sweater (let’s pretend I’m in California…). The basics here – the skin is the new Jewel from Curio and the brows on this skin are well, perfect. They are heavy without being well, heavy. My hair is from Exile, and while I’ve been snapping up the hair on display at the Dressing Room sales, I have not been to the store in a while, and I found this breezy style in the new section. Look at the flyaway hair! Because I’m an oldbie, and well stubborn as the day is long, I’m wearing shoes without feet, and they are the Candy Clogs from Shiny Things. The jewelry is my own (ahem), the Whirling Dervish set – you’ll find this set at Jewelry Fair in just a few days – exclusively. The poses for this post are from Olive Juice. For me the whole look is a refusal to believe that summer is over, and yet it is. Full outfit credits below.
