Slowly You Will Rise With Sleepy Feeling Eyes

New, awesome-collared shirt, with a slight monochromatic color scheme outfit going on.

And this one looks like Alice in Wonderland, who's really confused by the weird perspective and lopsided room.

A Scene of Cloudly Isolation

The coming of the storm.

I got out of there just in time.  This is the view of the torrential downpour from the cockpit of the dreammobile on my way home, seconds after I got in.  That windshield wiper is going so fast it's just a blur of sight-inducing movement.

Woven By Spiders and Sprinkled With Dewdrops

Some things are so delicate, human hands couldn't possibly have created them.

Portraits That Bring You Closer

Tonight was a night of leisure; no work, no plans, just me and my room full of Christmas books I have not had the chance to really delve into just yet.  This time, the Christmas gift shout-out goes to my brother, Andrew, for Scott Schuman's second paperback outing, Closer.  (Please take note that I took these with the camera on my computer and therefor the images are reversed.)

Mr. Schuman even signed it for me.

And this is my favorite page.

Their Boy-Bandit King

This feather collar thing is so cool.  I'm sensing a do-it-myself project soon.

Betrayed By Their Unique Walking Signatures

My Christmas Cowboy Boots are perfect (you may have noticed them in yesterday's post).  They're ankle height, low heel, have zippers with tassels, and feature a vibrant print to combat the full-on cowboy boot look, a level at which I have not yet arrived.  Maybe when I move to Nashville.

Flying Away From Reality, Whatever Ever Happened to Gravity

Art and fashion collide more often than one might think.  Actually, fashion is just a sliver of the gigantuan, unexplained and never-ending part of our lives that is art.  So, colliding might not be the best description, as a part of something cannot collide with its whole (look at that not really factually based science fact), but this painting of beautifully swaying colors matches the movement of the flowy-clad model almost exactly.

Triple-Tied Shoelaces and Other Implausibles

Interesting closures.  The first two remind me of old victorian dresses with the lines of buttons down the back that I can't imagine would be very fun, or a productive use of time to undo at the end of the day.

And now the ties, adding interest in usually ignored areas of clothing, and performing the functional purpose of tightening two loose ends.

And these butterfly snap/hook things on the skirt are a necessity, to avoid some sort of tmi wardrobe malfunction, as well as a cool detail.

A Comprehensive Social Breakdown

For someone who's really pretty anti-floral, it's weird that when two obscenely in-your-face floral patterns are paired together, I like it.  It's like they took the spring knob and turned it one louder.  These looks go to 11.

Far From This Opera Forevermore

Today we are graced with the presence of two stone palace dwellers of ancient Greece.  The first is bored with the same statues of Pegasus and toga-clothed Gods that greet her everyday, while the second is lamenting the fact that she does not have a swimsuit to take a dip in the fountain pool next to her.  It's tough being a lady in ancient Greece.

Please Don't Take My Sunshine Away

On this day of blackened clouds and cold rain, I long for the sun and warmth of a clear summer day.  When the outdoors welcomes you to its beauty and you can wear a simple sundress and gladiators.  Gladiators like these.

But for today, I would settle on a pair of duck boots.

The Aching Night's Inquisition

Here is an older Do-It-Yourself, I just never got around to photographing it until now.  I took one of my thrifted mens sweaters and cut a diagonal line up from the bottom left front hem so that it would create two strips that would tie together, making the sweater more fitted (and perfect for over tighter, more formal dresses), and would add some interesting wrinkles and folds.

Channeling the Greats

Rumi Neely of Fashiontoast.  Rich textures and materials, neutral colors, chunky shoes, and brilliant lighting.  (Her blog is my favorite).

Natalie Suarez of NatalieOffDuty.  The Grungey-Scene look, with a devil-may-care attitude, and perpetually slightly open lips.

Arielle Nachmani of SomethingNavy.  Party girl taking it to the streets, consistently posing the same way, with the same type of background.

Jane Aldridge of SeaofShoes.  Orangey-red hair, the most flawless skin I've ever seen, girly edge, and lots of experimentation, coming out of none other than Austin, Texas.

Elle Ribera of OpiumPoppies.  Platinum blonde forrest nymph with a penchant for all things frilly and dollhouse-dainty.

Kelly Framel of TheGlamourai.  Fun-loving, high-fashion wearing, classy New Yorker who likes a good wall for a background.  The more graffiti, the better.

Blair Eadie of Atlanitc-Pacific.  Young professional with a flair for layering, matching outfit colors to shoes, and bright red side-slinger bags.

Han Solo of Star Wars.  The true hero, starting off as a more rugged, intergalactic Danny Ocean (of Ocean's 11), and turns into a still rugged, but morally-conscious Aragorn (of Lord of the Rings).
