Make Mine a Malacca

The blog title was just a moment of mourning for the passing of the finest gin ever made when Bombay discontinued their wonderful Bombay Malacca a few years ago, leaving me to settle for the fine, but decidedly not as fine Bombay Sapphire. Ever since I saw The Bar, I have been wanting to shoot there, but also wanted to wear a dress that suited its rich palette. The Arioso dress from Blaze that I got at the RFL Fashion Expo a few weeks ago was what I was looking for.

The Arioso dress is amazingly flexible with multiple layer options. The textures are rich enough to deserve shooting here at the wonderful bar. Among the layer options, you get two color accents and two skirt lengths. She makes it in six jewel-tone colors. Scrumptious. I want them all. There are more photos at Flickr.

With it I wore the Buttons o’Fun retro pack from Kimberly Casanova. If I were a poet, I would write her a poem about how imaginative and downright fun her jewelry is. Besides the Buttons o’Fun sets that come in multiple colors, her Bamboomerang earrings have featured in many of my posts. They texture change and are incredibly versatile – and the textures are wild. I have never met her, but if I do, she will get a big hug from me. If you know her, give her a hug! She deserves it!  

Speaking of script changing, I also wore the wonderful all-color Mary Janes from Stiletto Moody. Oh, if only all my shoes were color-changing, my inventory would be so much more manageable.
