When I rezzed the Scarlet Creative Stargazer house in the sand, it immediately brought to mind the unforgettable house from Giant in the way it sat alone and defiant without any plants or trees to soften its edges and settle it into the environment.
This made me think of another great film inspired by the original, Robert Altman’s Come Back to the Five & Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean. I may be branded a heretic for all time for this, but I much prefer the underrated Altman film to the much-honored classic that inspired it.
I think it was the performance by Sandy Dennis that made this film so memorable for me. It was the first time I had seen her in a film and she blew me away. I know the Stargazer house is much smaller and not as quaintly Victorian, but I am sure you can see how I made the connection.
I had planned on going to the beach before I was sidetracked by memories, but the Nylon Outfitters skirt and Shai blouse from Collabor88 are great for hot weather, whether at the beach or in the bare sands of Marfa, TX.
My shoes are from Essenz and are called Tampa. Essenz names all their shoes after cities, and these do evoke the feeling of Tampa – or of Marfa.
Jewelry and glasses are from Yummy at Collabor88. You can modify the lenses and tint them to any color. The hair is Honey, a recent release from Truth. The mani-pedi is from FLAIR.
The skin is the newest release from Glam Affair – Cassia. I love the bold eye makeup – eye makeup that is right at home in both films.
