Yesterday my cat acted like a lunatic, running from one end of the apartment to the other, howling at the ceiling, even standing on the back of the couch on his hind legs, pawing at the air above his head and howling. He seemed to have taken leave of his senses. Today when he was back to his usual placid self, it clicked for me. Yesterday was a bright, beautiful sunny day and I had the window blinds all the way up to let all the sun in. Today it’s back to gloomy, cloudy rain. His reaction reminded me of a favorite short story by Ray Bradbury called All Summer in a Day. I remember reading it for the first time in 8th grade English class and actually crying in class. I found a short video on YouTube, cheekily low-budget and totally faking the ending. The filmmaker probably thinks people can’t handle the real ending which is a stark look at childhood cruelty without a Hollywood ending of redemption.
For my summer in a day, though, this crochet dress from Drift is just the ticket. As you can see, there is a suggestion of skin showing through achieved by making it in several skin tones. You buy the skin tone closest to your own. It comes with a hud that allows you to change the dress color to 10 summer options. This is a sexy dress, shaped to reveal with unabashed delight in the the sun. I would recommend wearing it with a 75 SPF, though, or you will have a spotty torso. My shoes are an older pair of fabulous open-toe wedges from Lelutka.
I have jewelry from the February Collabor88 by Maxi Gossamer and hair from the upcoming Fashion For Life event from Dura. There a bit of flexi in this style so it moves beautifully when you dance.
My skin is the third of Belleza’s Best Buys that were discounted over the weekend. I love the bright summer heat of the makeup on this one.
