Anonymous Mery said ... (1:41 PM) : 

Oh, this picture is pure love! Such exquisiteness!

Only question - did she take the jacket off for the picture? She seems to be a bit cold. Not only because of palette of clothes and pale skin.

Also have to love the lip color.
(The ribbon on the suitcase is too much for me for an already perfect look!)

I believe this is my favorite picture you have posted on your blog. I love everything about it: the textures, the draping of her dress, the edginess of her boots contrasted with the gossamer nature of her dress. I love her use of a small old suitcase (?) as her "purse." Most of all, the pop of color. Bravo!



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:33 PM) : 

Little Blue
Bright of the world and almost butterspread,
What a vision, I hope you’re not a vision,
Could you be what I feared so long to lose?

You little blue, you fresh breath of streets,
Cling to you do airs of pity and pitiless leaving;
Mon cheri, I’ll try to speak some other way.

Do you carry some poor prisoner in your suitcase?
I’d bundle myself for the long haul to be packed
Convenient and carried to any way station by you.

If problems could be solved and such by love,
And by some chance or if perhaps you wandered under
My window, then perhaps by you a wind raised might change.

Littlest blue, girl sweetness brushed in light,
Us rid of our jokes and palest promises to self,
You little blue, you scattering of cloud, besides.
