When I am gone, I hope it is said, “Her clothes were scarlet, and her blog was read!” (Adapted from a quote by Hilaire Belloc)
Red is one of my favorite colors to wear. It looks good on Harper and on her driver in RL. It connotes intensity, vibrancy, happiness (in the East), power and action. Nicky Ree’s newest dress, based on a design by Yves Saint Laurent (and quite beautifully inspired), is a deep gorgeous red that suits me perfectly.
Nicky has really pushed herself with this design and shows her ingenuity and skill throughout. First she starts with a sheer blouse topped by a jacket and enhanced with a sheen in the texture that lends the material richness. She takes that sheerness another whole level with her sheer sleeves, which are a brilliant touch. Her slit skirt, with the slit system skirt and slit system pants make the slit skirt perfect—she does everything right through all the layers.
My skin is from Aida Ewing, who has recently come out with this line of skins. Aida’s work is developing a sophistication that is going to put her in the A-list of skin makers very soon. Her make-ups are daring but pretty. She is balancing the eye make-up with the lips now and her eyebrows are lovely. I look forward to seeing what Aida makes in the future.
My very hot shoes are new from Kuranosuke Kamachi. With the combo ribbons AND the leather strap, they come off very “real” and fashionable. The shoes come with a hud for color changing and changeable toe nails plus toe rings. The best detail on the shoes is the platform and the leather straps in my opinion. They make the shoe fantastic.
