Reminiscing

14 04 2011

Friday night, it was late, I was walking you home
We got down to the gate and I was dreaming of the night
Would it turn out right
Now as the years roll on
Each time we hear our favorite song
The memories come along
Older times we’re missing
Spending the hours reminiscing

Reminiscing

Oh k.d., how I have missed you. She just came out with a new album and this little gem popped up. And I was waiting for some inspiration for this darling dress, which is kind of old-fashioned and contemporary all at once. Aree Lilibub has a way of doing that—she definitely has a vision and style and it’s very charming and retro-influenced but not dowdy. She does this with a low cut front and back, a luxuriously big bow tying the halter in back and a larger-scale print. (A small print would have made it less exciting).

The most suitable skin for a look like this is Mallory Cowen’s Linnea with its sexy glow and subtle sophistication. Ikon Innovia’s new hazel eyes are perfect as is this pretty little necklace from Sierra Gourdou. I love this casual and tousled hair from Truth Hawks. And my t-straps from Fallingwater Cellardoor complete the look. (You know, charming shoes like this are so underrated—this is such a feminine look in my humble opinion.) Overall perfect for reminiscing over k.d. lang.

Reminiscing

Hurry, don’t be late, I can hardly wait
I said to myself when we’re old
We’ll go dancing in the dark
Walking through the park and reminiscing

Always such amazing looks, Harp!
I’m really zooming in on those Fashism eyes. One AV has already bought a pair and I think all of them will follow suit in due course; that’s how amazing those eyes are:)

(psst: BTW, Reminiscing was originally done by The Little River Band, but like everything else she’s done k.d. makes it her own :)

Of course it’s the Little River Band. Gosh, I am old enough to know that. Ack! Hence it was referenced “as sung by….” I loved that song when I was a kid!
