The blog's going to be fairly dormant due to end-of-semester crunch time and camera woes. But I still know a good photo op when I see one.
Melissa likes handmade clothes, and shoots for a Renaissance or Gypsy feel. (Read more about Gypsies, or Roma as they call themselves, here.) The repetition of brick red tones, and the subtle integration of dramatic elements (leather vest and hood) into an ordinary outfit, give her the feel of a modern-day fae that travels through time or passes through parallel universes. Makes life feel a little less mundane for us onlookers in boring, "regular" outfits : P
Speaking of opportunities, I'm still having fun with dresses and leggings while the weather holds.
