Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you. ~ Nathaniel Hawthorne
The bee balm of monstrous proportions (it’s taller than me) in my back yard is about to bloom and when it does, my garden will be filled with butterflies. I can’t wait! In honor of this summer treasure, I feature butterflies (again), this time on this gorgeously textured halter dress from SamanthaSJones. She makes no apologies for using mesh templates, which she textures like mad with gorgeous prints and solids, ubiquitously found at events, this one at the Fashion Stars event.
My shoes from BabyChampagne Sass, who also seems to put out a ton of product, can also be found at the Fashion Stars event. With a black woven texture, they are stylish with stiletto heels just tippy-to-fall-down enough to be chic.
This is another of Tricky Boucher’s Belleza Best Buy skins being offered this weekend. With freckles and dewy lips, it’s the kind of fresh look that shows off the butterfly jewelry that Abraxxa Anatine has recently put out. I used the color changers to find these color combinations. My short flippy do is one of Chiaki Xue’s newest, fun and well shaped with two little curls like butterfly wings.
“A fallen blossom
returning to the bough, I thought —
But no, a butterfly.”
