Gentle Repose

This kind of describes the way I feel today: I spent the time to find something cute to wear and then…maybe a bit of a lie down. I thought “Gentle Repose” sounded better than “Lazy Slob” so that’s the title I went with.

In case you have a bit more energy than I do, you’ll want to head to Uber for the Kaylah Jeans from Just BECAUSE. They come with four versions: long with both tight and loose fits and for boots, also with tight and loose fits. The loose fit styles work with many bodysuits or tucked shirts. But still, try a demo to make sure they work with your selection. The boot style works perfectly with the Anna Boots from Just BECAUSE (available at the main store or on Marketplace, but they may work with other knee-high boots.

Before my lethargy set in, I visited the [Aleutia] main store to take advantage of the new store opening sale. Items are 25-50% off, with an additional 25% discount for group members. I picked up a few things, including the top I am wearing, which comes with a HUD to customise like crazy. The sale runs through October 1st, so even if you’re having a case of the lazies, too, you still have a bit of time to take advantage.

For any other information about my styling, please peruse the credits. I think I’ll just take a nap.

Far Too Long

It has been a while and I want to apologise for not blogging sooner. Sometimes health issues – injury, illness – get in the way, and what I thought was going to be a short break turned into something much longer than I hoped. To those of you who read my blog, thank you for peeking back in. For the marvelous designers and events I am blessed to blog for I thank you for your patience. I will do my very best to create posts that make you proud.

I have three posts ready to go, but since I have been sitting way longer than I should already, I’m going to keep this short and sweet. Please check the credits for the lovely things I am so proud to show you. Some of these are for events that end relatively soon, so please pay special attention to those deadlines.

And with that, I bring to an end my first post in much too long.

Kelly & Gracie

1-gracie2-sm

Has she struck a pose on a deserted beach, or fallen as she traverses the dunes in her heels? Perhaps we’ll never know…

What I do know is that the highlight of this photo (besides the landscape) is the detail that both Annie Melson of *Just BECAUSE* and Darling Monday of fri.day bring to everything they create. First, the top; the ribbing pulls in all the right ways and you can easily discern every tooth of the zipper. Then for the shoes – these aren’t just ordinary platform pumps; check out the tiny bow! For better viewing, click over to my Flicker stream and click on the photo to zoom in. These details are what make these designers a cut above.

Check out the credits for where to find Kelly and Gracie. These ladies deserve to be yours!
