Masala Chai

It wasn’t my intention to have one gorgeous subcontinent look followed by another but it panned out that way. I have been working on a special project, and in the meantime, four different events are opening tomorrow so there is scads to follow, look at, plan for. And the weather outside is absolutely gorgeous so I wonder why I am inside. It’s rare I feel behind the ball but right now I do. One of the best things I have seen among all if it is this gorgeous lehenga and dupatta and top from Zaara Kohime.

Mystic Realms Faire opens tomorrow and it’s been a few months of work for the organizers and has a great line-up of creators, including Zaara. It’s a most amazing construction: three pieces, all in mesh with a side jewel. It’s no easy task to rig mesh and make it work right and then to add textures to it to great depth and a sense of material. But then to layer the mesh pieces as Zaara has done with the translucent dupatta is an act of ingenuity or insanity. I am wearing the whole deal over the Belleza Mesh body (my own form of insanity..?) to show, once again, it can be done!

Masala Chai

My skin is Inka Mexicola’s luscious offering for Uber, with glittering eye makeup and full lips. The Belleza body has a very good skin match on the HUD. My eyes are from Constance Daehlie, also from the Mystic Realms Faire, with deep intensity. (If you noticed, I use a lot of Constance’s eyes because she has captured a manner of having light and color in them I love.) My hair is one of Kavar Cleanslate’s tumbling down styles for Mystic Realms and suits this outfit because it doesn’t interfere with the dupatta. And as always, Maxi Gossamer completes my look like a cherry on top with gorgeous jewelry (texture change) that she is offering at the new Collabor88.
