Elegance isn’t solely defined by what you wear. It’s how you carry yourself, how you speak, what you read. ~ Carolina Herrera


I have always been a big proponent of elegance, which features beauty and simplicity and a certain quiet rightness to things. People can speak of elegance in code, elegance in math or philosophy, but here I hope to represent it in self-presentation. My beautifully textured dress from Ariadne Garrigus certainly conveys the idea. With a simple palette, she covers her dress in beads of varying sizes over a satiny fabric but with a casual silhouette that includes a strappy criss-cross back. It’s purely sexy in a sleek elegant way. BabyChampagne Sass’s gorgeous peep-toe slingbacks and simple jewelry from Maxi Gossamer complete the look.


The inspiration for the look was Shantia Soulstar’s exclusive new skin for Skin Fair 2014. In trying on several skins for preview, this one definitely caught my eye with its elegant beauty and rich tone. (I shot it kind of overlit, I realize, but I wanted the gorgeous features to really show.) Shantia sells this skin in seven tones with 10 eyeshadows and 10 lipsticks and includes dark, light and no brow options. It’s a really captivating skin from a creator I had not tried before.

And of course, I have been looking for the perfect chance to show these dreads from M4ri1yn Magic. He has created a very interestingly engineered hair piece—there are two pieces actually: the dreads themselves and then the wisps. This ensures the pieces will fit on your head. His HUD includes tones from white to dark with blonde, red and dark in between. It’s a fresh thought process from M4ri1yn and not like his other hair, and I love it!
