Today is the day many of the faithful of Minnesota celebrate by wearing purple in honor of St. Urho who famously saved the grape harvest of Finland by uttering the phrase “Heinäsirkka, heinäsirkka, mene täältä hiiteen” (roughly translated: “Grasshopper, grasshopper, go to Hell!”) My family has made the pilgrimage to Menagha to see the famous statue of Saint Urho.
It’s too far to travel this year, but in St. Urho’s honor I am wearing purple – the fabulous Miro-inspired purple and orange dress from Moonstruck. Embellished with circles that evoke the work of Miro and in colors suited for a blacklight runway – it’s an avant garde party in fabric. It is one of the wonderful finds at this year’s Fashion For Life.
The skin is also from Fashion For Life – from Katsucide. The hair is from Truth and the earrings are from je suis’ fun and funky asymetrique set that includes necklace and bracelets as well.
p.s. Today is 55L Friday at Fashion For Life and you will find offerings of special FFL items for only 55L just for today.
