The Citiest People


I am in love with this gorgeous gown and capelet from KatatOnik. It comes is all the rich jewel tones that you could need to fill a treasure chest. You will find it at Collabor88.  For some reason, the pose and the cool blue tone of the lighting made me think of Melanie Safka’s extraordinarily beautiful song, The Citiest People. Most people probably have not heard of Melanie, or if they have, they only know her biggest song, Brand New Key. However, if you have a chance, spend some time on Spotify or YouTube and discover her many other fabulous songs, like Kansas, Someday I’ll Be a Farmer or Candles in the Rain. 


To the citiest people
In the whole wide world
You’ve been unkind
To an un-city girl
From the stone walls you grew, so
I’m not blaming you
But look what the city –
Just look how the city
Has taken a pretty
And made an ugly of you
Just look what the city
Is doing to you


I have pulled out my Fiat Lux projector that I am selling on Marketplace for 50L for shooting the pics today. This is a combination of two projectors – one white and one tinted. They are mod, so you can change the color of the tint. I changed it to red the other day and have often changed it to gold. You can pretty much tint it any way you please. You can also make your own, using the tutorials you can find under the Tutorials tab up above. 

To the citiest people
In the citiest town
I’m not the one
To be putting you down
From the stone walls you grew, but
I grew there too
And I know that the city
The dirty old city
Can take such a pretty
And make an ugly of you
Just look what the city
Is doing to you



I just love this Ma Vie pose so much I had to include it even though I already have a full body shot up above. As you can see the dress is simply adorable, but with the rich brocade and the saturated jewel colors, it could easily be combined with other elements to make a great dress for Halloween, too.



The mules are from Sax Shepherd Designs. You can customize the colors of the different elements, the sole, the laces, the jewel and make these shoes into just about anything you like.  They go with the Slink feet. KatatonikOct12_006


The adorable little bob is from Tukinowaguma. It’s sold in two color packs. As a redhead, I have to say, I always find it odd that red does not go in the naturals pack and is plopped down with the pinks, purples and greens.  A person could get a complex. KatatonikOct12_007

The skin is this month’s Collabor88 offering from Glam Affair.  The necklace and earrings are from Balderdash, a truly unique and creative jewelry store.
