Hair style is the final tip-off whether or not a woman really knows herself. ~Hubert de Givenchy, Vogue, July 1985
I start with the hair today because it’s the hair that has been all over the feeds and probably will be all over Flickr. What gives this special meaning for me is that the hair is named after a friend. She, like the hair, can be unmanageable, untamed, and quite bold. But she is also beautiful, just like this hair. Vitabela Dubrovna knows Irena well enough to know how she is.
I wanted a skin that was arrestingly beautiful and Hart Larsson’s skin was ideal. With the crisply outlined lips and boldly outlined eyes, this skin can stand up to hair like this and be on equal footing without being brash or crass.
The dress is sleek and classy—a newer offering from Shinichi Mathy. Shinichi is known for making casual fun stuff but has lately branched out to more sophisticated evening wear and this dress is wonderfully textured and rendered. I love the simplicity of the black and white and the almost Asian pattern of dots.
There’s many a [wo]man has more hair than wit. ~ William Shakespeare

Well, in honor of Eshi’s RL bday, I am doing another blog. I already said the mushy stuff in the other one, so this one will be a straight to the point deal wherein I show off the boots Eshi gave me and I try to look sexy.
Apparently Eshi’s ba-ack. She has a nice Post Mortem sale going on in her new store (go grab that Queen of Hearts before she yanks it), a happy chair puffing out free stockings (I aced orange ones), and some new boots to share.
In her typical untypical manner, Eshi has made boots that echo the lines of current fashion with their outré platform soles, round roller skate heels and futuristic shiny grungy textures.
I paired the boots with Cienega’s Chocolate Sin also by Eshi but hiked up the leg skirts and removed the center prim to convert it from an evening dress to culottes.
Check out the hiney on this one. Eshi clearly had too much fun making those circles over the booty.
I topped it with Truth’s lush Stephanie and a skin from Pulse’s Valerie skin line.
As you read this, Eshi and I will be enjoying The Nutty with our favorite boys at our favorite sidewalk cafe. Happy Birthday, chick ;)
