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.

Calling All Angels

Morphine Janick of the Sweetest Good-bye (which is a great store name—makes me feel emo in a good way) has created a great outfit for Black Swan’s Swansong—Placebo. She has rendered a very precise system piece in her body suit with its fishnet stocking on one side and vinyl legging on the other. Her zipper work and seam matching is flawless. The wings are petite—I prefer that, actually. They are more an accessory than the feature piece as wings are usually.

Calling All Angels

This is a fantasy piece, more suited to photographs than to trips to Franks. Actually, if you wore it, you would be the talk of the room.

I styled this outfit with Viktoria Brandenberg’s Black VIK 6-Laces Knee Boots. Black, shiny, wicked, these boots come as knee high or she has another in full thigh high. With 10 colors available on the laces, I find myself wearing the boots more and more frequently, matching them to any outfit that has even a hint of black leather.

Calling All Angels

The skin is one of Pulse’s newest—Iced Grape. This “futuristic” look worked well with an anime sort of hair from Kin Keiko (it’s a bit older–not sure if it’s for sale anymore).
