I was tired, cranky and out of sorts, trying to think of a good title for this blog post, I shared this photo on plurk asking for ideas for a post title. They were no help at all, not because they didn’t help, but but because they helped too well.
Really, how can I choose between Sophee Mojo’s elegant and oh-so-autumnal suggestion of the title “Nothing Gold Can Stay” from Robert Frost’s lovely poem.
Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf,
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day
Nothing gold can stay.
But then there’s Tymmerie Thorne reminder of the commercial we have all seen again and again, “Help, I’ve fallen and I can’t get up.”
or Frequency Picnic’s suggestion of the immortal line from McBain in The Critic:
And that’s not all. What to do? What to do?
Yeah, I punted.
Anyway, don’t you all love the pencil skirt and duo sweater set that were just released by Sissy Pessoa of Baistice? The color of the skirt and sweater coordinate so you can wear the same color and it looks like a set, but I opted to choose contrasting colors instead. The pieces are made to wear together so the bottom of the sweater and the waistband of the skirt meet perfectly.
Collabor88 is still open and there are some wonderful finds there – including this adorable side braid with a beret and a little ribbon (both changeable with a hud) from Clawtooth and the darling fall necklace and earring sets from Yummy that come in silver, gold and copper. Copper is the one shown.
FLAIR – as always – has a perfect manicure for my SLink hands.
The Neva skin is as lovely as its inspiration – and released for The Liaison Collaborative. Those eyes are from Umeboshi, from that fat pack I accidentally bought at Seasons Story. As I said, I full intend to wear them all. This blue duotone is stunning.
