Celadon / 52 Weeks of Color Challenge

Celadon

The word ‘celadon’ — this week’s color for the challenge — makes me think of summer afternoons, escaping the heat by going to the museum, looking at collections of ancient Asian ceramics. So cool, that pale shade of green, light and yet filled with mystery; clear, yet hiding ancient secrets.

4th of July / Lelutka at Hair Fair

Happy4thAngela

Are you ready for fireworks? I certainly am! I hope our non-US friends and colleagues will permit us an excess of patriotism on this special day, and maybe even enjoy some hot dogs, cold beer, and red, white and blue with us while we watch the skies filling with color and light, and celebrate our nation’s birth.

For my post today I’m showcasing some of the wonderful Lelutka hairstyles I picked up at Hair Fair. (Confession: Yes, I got every single one — and am wearing four of the five.) They come with hairbases (not worn here) to soften the line between hair and forehead. I love them all and am still trying to decide which one to wear tonight. Hope I make up my mind by 9 so I get to the fireworks on time!

Happy 4th, everyone!

Before the party

Party Dress

Do you ever have that moment when, as you’re getting ready to head to a party you suddenly feel shy and awkward? It happens to me sometimes, particularly if I know I won’t know a lot of people there. As a child I was painfully shy. The thought of meeting strangers paralyzed me. Upon arriving anywhere new, I’d hide behind my mother and try and keep her from leaving, or look for a corner where I could disappear. But when my Mom would come to pick me up, I’d be happily playing with the other kids, or even leading them in my favorite games of make-believe. As an adult, I’ve mostly overcome it; people who know me can’t believe I was ever shy. But to this day, I have to reassure the little girl inside of me that she doesn’t need to look for a corner in which to hide, that it’s going to be fun, and people are going to be warm and welcoming. And it almost always is. And they almost always are.

STYLE

…of course, it always helps to be wearing a fabulous new party dress and amazing new shoes!

I’m still opening folders of all the lovely things I got at the CH1C Birthday event, and this LeeZu gown is amazing. I feared it might be more ‘haute couture’ than I could carry off, but it turned out to be the perfect dress for a fabulous night out. Bring on the champagne and caviar!

Anyone who reads this blog knows that I love fashion; what you might not know is that I also count architecture and interior design among my passions. I was recently tasked with decorating a bedroom, and making it very ‘Oceany’. While it’s still very much a work in progress, I thought I’d show off what I’ve done so far. And unlike RL where I’d be wearing my grimiest cut-offs and t-shirt to move heavy pieces of furniture from one spot to another, here I get to do it in this lovely Peqe sundress!

City Girl

City Girl Interior

And when it’s all over, you get to go home. For me that means here: the city. Where I can get lost in the comforting frenzy of crowds and noise and lights. On the streets, we avoid each other’s eyes, having long ago learned the pedestrian dance — the quick step and hop, feint and avoid — that lets us get where we’re going quickly despite the masses of people between here and there. Finally home, you allow your breath to slow and deepen. Time to think about the day, and about what you want, and what you might possibly do next. But no decisions tonight. Just reflection and calm, and later, you hope, there will be sleep.
