The Firebird

When I assembled this ensemble, the first thing I thought of was the Firebird, the mythical bird in Igor Stravinsky’s ballet, a rare and beautiful creature who wants only her freedom.

This beautiful dress from Shea Paule, an initial offering in his new “SoftWear” line (as opposed to his “HardWear” line for men), is ideal for the Firebird. With its feathered hem and collar, backless shape and glittering touches (look closely at the chains he so finely built for the back), it’s a gorgeous ensemble for a special look. He includes prettily adorned shoes (which I don’t show here cuza my shoes from Nardya Rousselot were so perfect for this look) and a gorgeously-made necklace and earrings with the ensemble.

I thought this skin from Inka Mexicola would be perfect for the beautiful Firebird with its smokey eyes and bold blush. I like these heavy brows for this Firebird as they define her gorgeous eyes (as always from Ikon Innovia). My hair is from DJAngel Fallen, who has opened a new(ish) store with static hair styles. I love how this ponytail curls around to the front and the bangs are face-defining, again bringing focus on the eyes.

  1. Thanks so much for the kind words, Harper. I’m very pleased you like the dress. :)) I must admit, I thought “Firebird” too, when I finished that variation, but the inspiration for the colour really was the vermillion poppies that were blooming outside my house way early– possibly due to global warming… there is always a silver lining isn’t there?
