Magnolias and the Lilies of the Field

One of the surprises when I moved to Oregon were the magnificent magnolia trees. I had seen them in pictures, of course, but I thought of them as southern trees, not trees to flourish in the Pacific Northwest. But flourish they do. They are in bloom now.

Magnolias have such a grandiose beauty, without fear of being gaudy or flamboyant. They just are what they are. They don’t hide their exuberance, their size or their extravagance. It reminds me of one of my favorite Bible verses, “Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow;they toil not, neither do they spin, yet Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.”

The scarf that is belted to this dress from NYU reminds me a bit of the exuberant magnolia petals. With a color-change HUD, there are 10 plain or 10 print scarf options. The dress itself comes in 10 colors that match the scarf options.




These recently released mesh open-toe sandals from Glamisty are also as rich in colors as the lilies of the field. The color-change HUD allows wearers to specify the metals, the color of the heel, the shoe and the straps.


And for fun, this ring from Yummy is just as whimsical as can be with its face of Laura Palmer. You can find it at Collabor88.

The headdress of magnolias is from LODE and can be found at The Arcade. The skin is from Glam Affair and is at Collabor88. The hair is a great, casual mid-length bob that has a bit of rebellious energy to it.
