“When I look into your eyes
I can see a love restrained
But darlin’ when I hold you
Don’t you know I feel the same
‘Cause nothin’ lasts forever
And we both know hearts can change
And it’s hard to hold a candle
In the cold November rain.”
– Guns N’ Roses, November Rain
You know, it has to be bad when I quote the lyrics of a Guns N Roses song, but November is doing her work on my mood, strangling the golden rays of the sun and presenting a us with a gray sky and moody mien. ‘
A little color is in line, and this dress from pixivor Allen fits the bill perfectly, reminding us of the rich and beautiful colors autumn just gave us. I especially love the hem of the dress—pixivor has made a graceful and translucent skirt that doesn’t suffer from alpha clash by using the right channels and underlying it with a simple texture. It floats beautifully in the November winds and brightens the grayest day with its bold and feminine beribboned waist and sequined top. Normally a decollatage like this would aggravate me—it’s so simple and “easy.” But pixivor exceeds expectations with a clean and crisp edge and logical decoration. She didn’t default to this because it was easy; it’s SUPPOSED to be this shape.
My skin is a new offering from Syndel Daviau. Syndel has tried to enter a pretty competitive environment among skin makers, and she admittedly uses mostly photosourced pieces for her skins. But her recent Lorena set is certainly up for the challenge with its smoky eyes and optional makeups. Syndel opted to offer blush sets, an aging set, and a freckle set for the tattoo layer, which is a different strategy than most skin makers.

very gorgeous out fit and styling, harper, love the orange and brown on you!
Thank you, Music.. it’s so good to have folks like you out there to read the blog :) :)
I adore Truth’s Miranda hair (because it is over the top and Jersey Shore) but you’ve transformed it with that gown. It’s no longer Snookie, it’s graceful.
That’s the best compliment I have gotten all day–you have made something non-Snookie! Yay!
I really love the waist, and what she did with the ribbons in the end; that’s a nice detail back there. The bodice, as you say, is also great.
