Gray & Gorgeous

There’s a lot of gray on the grid today as people show solidarity with an effort raise awareness of brain cancer by wearing gray for the day. Cancer is an invidious and heartbreaking disease that can best be defeated by increased awareness which often leads to early detection. Too many of us ignore warning signs and for some, that delay is deadly. I lost my brother to lung cancer in July. Like so many who lose the battle with cancer, he ignored warning signs and dismissed symptoms with mundane explanations – never considering the possibility that it could be cancer until it was so advanced as to be untreatable.  America lost Sen. Kennedy to brain cancer last month and we are poorer for it.  I doubt any of us have lived lives untouched by cancer.  I am happy to lend my support to this worthy cause as well.

I don’t know if a dress as gorgeous as this should count toward that effort, however, since it’s one dress I would happily wear any day of the year.  The lovely Mimikri Seduction Dress in gray is just achingly beautiful.  It’s a lovely silvery gray lace over a satin sheath with an extravagant lace bow in the back. The sheath is opaque over the torso and hips and becomes increasingly sheer as the skirt moves from the hips to mid-thigh.  It comes with a prim sash as well, but I preferred how it looks without the sash.

With a dress called Seduction, what other shoe could I wear but Adam n Eve’s Seductress.

The jewelry is a mix. The necklace and bracelets are from Dark Mouse –  pieces available only at the Jewelry Expo right now – though they will be in the store after another week. The necklace is cascades of silver beads. The bangles are lovely silver and white deco pieces. The earrings are from U&R Dogs – little silver orbs that echo the shapes of the necklace. The hair is a hot new favorite from Exile. By the way Exile is having a 50% off sale on everything so get your rear in gear and get over there.

Makeup is Zara from Your Skin & Your Shape (YS & YS) with dramatic cat eyes and rich, glossy red lips.
