Christmas Fashion 3 — Christmas in Babbage   Leave a comment

Unlike Harper, who was exploring the spiritual side of Christmas, or Jem, who decided to freeze herself outside, Morgan and me went for a nice, warm room in Babbage.

Which of the two Chinese do you think I am …?  (Well, actually, I’m not even Chinese, but we’ll just leave that behind us for now.)

… There are the Chinese from Mainland China, who made their fortunes in the past decade like all the Russians, but then there are the Overseas Chinese. These are the ones who left China long before the Communists came in, in many cases hundreds of years ago, and spread throughout the rest of Asia, quietly amassing great fortunes over time ….

Kelini Couture is Closing

In case you haven’t heard, Kelini Couture is closing as a house of haute couture.  It’s time for a break, according to sources, and so the emphasis is shifting to their urban line, called Haters.

For gown addicts like me — I’d spend a day swathed in an evening gown, if I could — this is sad news.  But they’re holding a clearance sale, and it’s an opportunity, too, to pick up the Eva Kelini gowns you don’t have.  Most of the store is L$ 350 or less, except for the newest (and last, for a time at least) spectacular on the New rack.  Head on over before they close for remodeling!

Hopefully photos in future….

Gilda Rides Again; or, How To Create a Fake Jean Louis Original

Gilda by Adaptation 1

Hold it, guys; I promise you, I’m not Gilda.  I don’t live in a film noir classic, I don’t live in Buenos Aires, and my husband isn’t trying to corner the world tungsten market.  And I don’t go around obsessively singing “Put the Blame on Mame.”

That’s the negative; turn the page for the positive.

Duty Shift

Duty Shift

Why, oh why, didn’t I put on a frackin’ watch when I got dressed for that date?  And, of course, I never asked him for the time, either…until fifteen minutes before I was supposed to report for shift.

Thank the gods I did that much, at least.  Otherwise, I’d be beaming up from right there in the restaurant.  Oh, wouldn’t that be great for the career!  This is bad enough as it is; not only am I on duty for the next four hours in high heels, but I swear I heard someone call me “Lieutenant Cinderella” as I shot through the tram station outside the command center….

Sigh.

Saint Patrick’s Day 2011

I always like to do a casual and formal shoot for Saint Patrick’s Day, one of the lovely holidays in world.  This year, besides the computer needing replacing, RL work and home has kept me hopping, and I haven’t been able to do many things I wanted to do.  But I did manage to squeeze in a few fast photos of this beautiful gown very early yesterday….

The dress is from PurpleMoon, and is called Serafina.  It also has a large production-show skirt that I didn’t take the time to fiddle with, but is still beautiful.  For me, this skirt is enough, along with the lovely high collar behind my head.  (I have a thing for dragon-wing collars, I guess….)  The collar is removable, of course, as is the excellent orchid-bloom detail on the breast; but who would want to do away with such niceties?  I used for hair an old ‘do from Sinsation — yes, Sinnocent Mirabeau did do some sane hairstyles during her time in world, and this is one of my nicest short bobs.  Along with this is a new eyeshadow from Miamai, one of their usual package of five at a time.

The jewelry suite of necklace and earrings came, I believe, from last year’s Jewelry Fair; it is by RH Engel, and this is the first time I’ve worn them. (Gotta clean out that inventory sometime…!)  I matched this with….

…a beautiful emerald bracelet from EarthStones, and a big, splashy, Art Deco-like cocktail ring.  Erin go bragh!!
