“Only the pure in heart can make good soup.” ~ Ludwig Beethoven
Eshi came over the other day, made a fabulous chicken soup (after she shopped for all the ingredients), made fried chicken and mashed potatoes, brought the best cupcakes, and left a mess in my kitchen.We sat at the table and teased my kid, looked at her mom’s paintings on Facebook, laughed at my DH’s truly dreadful joke, and enjoyed being a family. She drove home out in the country on a chilly, crystal clear evening. Later that night she sent this dress to me.
Sometimes we forget that “artists” are also humans, with varied talents and traits. Knowing a person who makes a dress like this makes it even more intriguing. I know where she lives, how she sleeps, what she drives. Where in her mind did that sweet girl she pull something like this out? Probably the same place her big black garbage bag dress came from. She has made this from mesh, added a spectacular top, and made one of her characteristic hats held on by long hat pins. She accompanies it with otherworldly feathers and pleats at the bottom. I love this dress and hat! (Almost as much as I love her soup.)
I thought Aleida Rhode’s skin from the TDR Fusion would be perfect for this with its very minimal yet high fashion details. The lips are to die for with their pale but classic line and the shaping of the face elevates me to a model. Truth Hawks’ side-swept and gorgeous blonde hair completes this look.
The road to a friend’s house is never long.
