Think of All the Stories That We Could Have Told


The ottoman is a pose prop from Lost Angel for Pose Fair. The shopping bags come with the ottoman.

One day baby, we’ll be old
Oh baby, we’ll be old
And think of all the stories that we could have told
One day baby, we’ll be old
Oh baby, we’ll be old
And think of all the stories that we could have told

One Day Reckoning by Asaf Avidan


We aren’t old yet; and there’s no reason not to tell our stories now. I think one way we tell our stories is through fashion. What we wear signifies so much about us. as we walk down the street, complete strangers can learn how daring or conventional we are, how flashy or restrained, how forward-looking or how nostalgic. Of course, that is an incomplete picture since we can wear something avant garde one day and something waiflike the next. After all, we contain multitudes.


No more tears, my heart is dry
I don’t laugh and I don’t cry
I don’t think about you all the time
But when I do – I wonder why

I am feeling very high fashion today in this luscious Loovus Dzevavor Cleaveland dress.  It’s a blue sheath with a large keyhole neckline. The graphic is a traditional Arabic shape. The placement is genius in how it accentuates and conforms to the female shape. From this side view, you can see how perfectly the front and back are matched.


Here you can see the keyhole halter bodice and further appreciate the artistry involved in placing the graphic shape. I added gloves that matched the scarf and shoes, tying the pieces together. The bangle is an old one from DeLa that I have had for nearly six years, but it is still in perfect condition. The earrings are a recent release form Pure Poison and with their contemporary allusion to Damascene metal working seemed a perfect complement to the dress. The Dura hair worked pretty well under the scarf, though I made a copy and edited individual prims to move them out of the way so they did not show through the scarf. Whenever I do that, I just toss that edited copy right in the folder with the scarf so that I can use it again. Spending 10 minutes shifting hair prims is worth the effort if you use the hair more than once.


I really love these BSD Design Studio shoes. Called Yeriak, the wrapped fabric mirrors the loose folds of the scarf. As soon as I saw these shoes at the Hollywood event, I knew they would be perfect and sure enough, I think they are. The skin tinting hud was super easy to use and offers different options for tinting so you can do it your favorite way. It is, however, a huge HUD, so you may have to move it to one side to see your feet better when using the hud to resize to fit you exactly.


The skin is from Dulce Secrets, one of the finds at Skin Fair.

    I love, love, love this post. Mostly I love the color combinations you put together and the styling of this outfit. The dress is gorgeous in this bold color, but combining it with the yellow-gold accessories makes it really pop. I don’t usually comment on things, just quietly read and appreciate what you and other fashionistas blog, but I had to make my compliments on this one because I liked both the fashion and the text so much. I’d go out and buy this complete look, but…well, it’s been done so perfectly.
