First of all, to all those wonderful designers who have recently given me prezzy’s to consider blogging, I’m sorry I haven’t gotten around to them. I’m a retired Cao, so my attention span is rather short. Expecially when the weather is so nice outside. Besides, don’t blame me, you’ll have to blame this one on Nevery Lorakeet of *Les Petits Details* and a few others. I will explain. Mila Tatham of *SoliDea FoliEs* gave me an outfit. Which isn’t a surprise, I’m her manager. This outfit though, is the Celeste outfit. I love the Celeste outfit. It’s Blue! But as a model, I can’t wear the same thing every day right? So I could just wear it around the house or sleep in it. Um, no. Because then I’m not showing it to anyone but KT (the Jack Russell Terriorist), because, as all of you know, I’m undate-able. After being gone last Wednesday to Monday, when I returned I found a folder with a sweet note in it, the folder simply said “For Cao.” Nevery is learning to use blender to create her own mesh items and a bit ago she asked me if I wanted her to make anything specific and I told her if she was serious, she could check my Pinterest account for all of my dream items. Inside the folder was the most adorable purse. In blue! Which naturally made me think of Celeste!
It sat in the nice folder for a few days, but then today. As I was checking out my Facebook friends, I saw a post by Tabata Jewell of “Vanity Hair” for a new hair called “Diavolo.” Jaw dropped. Gorgeous. Well at this point, I knew what I had to do. When I logged in at lunch I gathered my three pieces. To make the blog “current” I swung by Collabor88 and picked up a few items from Glam Affair and LaGyo, threw in the Collabor88 “Rain or Shine” patio set from Lisp Bazaar, I can’t help it, I have a soft spot for anyone named Pandora Popstar, and zipped home for my 60 minute styling. Heck, I was pretty much done at this point. I had the style, I recolored and retextured the skirt (make sure to make a copy of the original before retexturing or you can never get it back) from Eshi Otawara’s of Eshi’s “Heather” dress and I was done. Sixty minutes, a few pics, a crop and upload later, I am done.
The take from? Of course, need I say so? There always is.. If you are feeling down, uninspired, or lacking creativity. Find one thing in a color you can’t live without. Just one thing that makes you smile, and put it on. From there move outward until you build something happier, more creative and inspiring from the one thing. It could change your entire day. I know this challenge sure brought me a smile. I hope it did for you too. SLURL’s on the “Last Known SLURL’s” page on the left of the screen. I can be nice like that. Sometimes. If I have to. I guess.
