“The noble buoyancy of her attitude, its suggestion of soaring grace, revealed the touch of poetry in her beauty that Selden always felt in her presence, yet lost the sense of when he was not with her. Its expression was now so vivid that for the first time he seemed to see before him the real Lily Bart, divested of all the trivialities of her little world, and catching for a moment a note of that eternal harmony of which her beauty was a part.”
~ Edith Wharton, The House of Mirth
I dressed up for a wedding a few days ago and I was so pleased with my look I had to share it. I named this look “Lily” after the character in “House of Mirth,” because the quote spoke to me. With a beautiful mesh dress from Sissy Pessoa, I was elegant and dressed well without outshining the bride, who was resplendent in white. I loved the bronze tone in the dress and the lush texture Sissy gave to the mesh. I wore lovely shoes from Senzati0n Domenitzo and Maxi Gossamer’s newest set for FaMESHed, a gorgeous pearl set that includes texture change for the color of the pearls and the metal.
Sawsan Secretspy’s glorious skin from the Hipster Fair was a great look for this bronze dress. And a gorgeous braided updo from Mirja Mills (thank god someone is doing them because it’s getting near-impossible to find new updos anymore) made my look complete. Congratulations, Etrone and Jayci. May your partnership in SL be happy and long lasting.
