A Perfect Storm


When fashion blogging, or even just getting dressed for the day, sometimes one might feel like “This outfit is just okay” or “I’m really digging this look” – but somedays, on those rare occasions, the stars align and all the perfect elements fall into place and you end up with a look, or even better, a shot, that just knocks your socks off.

Today was one of those days for me.

It started with a trip to the now-open event, Designers United 5: Surrealism. One of the Seraphim bloggers had shown me a photo of this outfit by Maitreya, and I knew immediately that it had to be mine. I’ve always been a huge Salvador Dalí fan – he has used this spindly leg effect in many of his paintings – and have been fortunate enough to see an exhibit of his art in RL. I even went twice.

I also found at DU5 this amazing hair by [INK] Hair and this collar/birdcage contraption by .Olive. I modded the cage though by turning it around so it would match the flow of the hair. I couldn’t be happier with the look! And as the icing on top, Dani shared this amazing windlight with me that she had found on Juicybomb ages ago. It’s the perfect compliment to this outfit and also for the autumn season.

Oh, and if you didn’t know, my super duper favorite skin place, Essences, is having a 50% off sale, too! YAY!!! No word on when it will end, though. I promise I didn’t buy them all. ; )

And truly last but not least, before I published this post I realized, “Oh, it’s Monday, let me go see what Berry’s meme is for today just in case I want to add it in here,” and what do ya know, it’s a Surrealism Challenge meme! 2 birds, 1 stone – WOOT!

Be sure to stop by Designers United before it ends on October 4th and find YOUR inspiration!

Surrealism is destructive, but it destroys

only what it considers to be shackles limiting our vision.
