Today I got up early, made pancakes, watched the tail end of a movie, then drove to the salon for some pampering. I got my hair cut, colored and highlighted and a manicure, and I felt just gorgeous when I left. What is it about these moments of self-transformation that make us feel so wonderful? Is there some beauty spa endorphin rush someone hasn’t discovered? Maybe it’s those relaxation candles they have (though they never work quite that well at home.)
This dress from Elettra Gausman also gives me that same kind of charge. With its great faux animal print (looks kind of Filter Forge), the dress is well made with the texture logically carried out through the bodice, into the skirt and the sculpty shoulder piece. Elettra gives it a sexy cut up the side and wraps the torso with the edge line to make the waist look even smaller. It’s great design. What I really like about Elettra’s work is that she creates a brand new item with each thing. I never see motifs or templates repeated. She doesn’t make one dress and then 12 color variations of it. Each piece stands out on its own and when she shines, she really shines.
I have donned a new hair from Mirja Mills that creates movement and drama in this photo. She called it “Windblown,” and it really is. Nena Janus’ elegant and sexy skin completes the look with bright red lips.
I love these new shoes from Kalnins with their strappy silhouette. These have to be my favorites they have offered yet, and they provide their own sort of endorphin rush.
“Don’t hate me because I’m beautiful….”
