“How can people say they don’t eat eggplant when God loves the color and the French love the name? I don’t understand.” ~ Jeff Smith
Eggplants are about to come into season, and I am prepared. The French word for eggplant is, of course, “aubergine,” a much more luscious and beautiful word for their deep purple color. This dress made me think of that word. The color is not as blue black purple as aubergine; it’s more a bordeaux but this is not a blog entry about wine. It’s about eggplant.
I love this new dress from Harry Hyx because it’s sleek and structured and beautifully tailored to fit. The design lines in the texture add high style and the criss-crossed straps that don’t quite lay flat and have a believable dimensionality. I accessorized with high heels from Eku Zhong, made to fit the SLink feet, that have a gorgeous gold texture, and earrings from AvaGardner Kungler.
I ran over to the Cosmetic Fair Beach Party (which is indoors, so don’t worry about wearing sunscreen), and I found that Stasey Oller has put out this lovely skin for blondes. I have not always picked up on her work because bright pink glossy lipstick is not my thing, but this skin is a great palette for such or for more subtle looks. I chose one of her glossy lips to wear with it, sheer and without teeth. I know people like parted lips but they are very hard to pull off right. My hair is Truth Hawks’ newest for men but also fitted for women. His textures are, as always, luscious and this style really looks great on women who can pull off short hair.
