A Masked, Short Summer

¨Then the flowers turned red
And the shadows grew tall

Did I make you disappear?
Were you ever here at all?¨

In my last post (here) I left out this other version of the outfit which I really meant to include and here it is. This time in white and worn with the mask it comes with. Very elegant, with more than a dash of alluring and mysterious glamour. Byrne – Vudu Yudu in White. Hair by Truth. Azoury – Shoes.

Allons​ Enfants!

I know, my clothing today has nothing to do with the title and I´m the first to admit it. I actually tried – very hard – to ignore July 14th, 2017 to the best of my abilities.

I did not want to feel the void that the passing of the only French born relative I had in the Americas had recently left in me. We had always celebrated Bastille Day together. For most of the day, I succeeded at dismissing it. Until I couldn’t …

The celebration across the street is still in full swing, even as we speak. Living in a very particular part of town, it is happy and cheerful; peppered with the occasional shout … ¨Vive La France¨.

It does hurt. I no longer have her by my side singing ¨The Marsaillaise¨ today, but then again her values, her dignity and those of our beloved France continue to live on in my heart, in my mind and in my deepest HOPES. Spread them around:

Liberté. Égalité. Fraternité!

Byrne Xiuying
A New Shore

A strapless gown in an oriental pattern. The front of the dress attaches to two mystical Ulziis and a Shou symbol for a bit of Mongolian auspiciousness.  Two pieces of fabric attached to these then tie around the neck.

The super high thigh slits on both sides of the legs provide freedom of movement to an otherwise strictly figure hugging gown.

The head flowers echo those on the dress and the pearl and black leather bracelet anchors the colors.
