Guess What?? -- Featuring - A Z U L -, FINESMITH and Truth

Guess what... Guess what... GUESS WHAT??? I find myself truly privileged to blog for a designer I've admired for years, long years before I ever modeled or knew a thing about fashion. Thank you Mami Jewell and -AZUL- for the great joy that this brings me. I hope that one voice from the southern belle from South Carolina will encourage others to discover you for the first time or for the 999th.
Black tends to be a color I see everywhere I go in our shared Second Life. I understand the concept. It's easy to wear. It's dark and sinister. It's club wear. It's formal wear. Black goes with everything. But, when I walk into a room filled with people, my eyes naturally gravitate to the people who choose bright colors, zany patterns and prints, and creative design.
The Tangerine version of the gown Lucy from -AZUL- appeals to that need for bright colors. The quirky headpiece from FINESMITH that's a bit like Bonsai to me (my father's hobby all the years of the life I shared with him) with a sexy twist. If he could read that now, wouldn't he chuckle. Bonsai with a sexy twist. Only Karyn/Caryn would say that! The jewelry, also from FINESMITH, had it's own artistry to it, love birds sitting on a branch together.
Bringing the world outside, the natural, the super natural, and creating art, wearable art, well that's just beautiful. I spend a lot of time indoors, being a good patient (hard headed, grumpy, disagreeable, you know... good, right?), so I think I'm even more thrilled with artistic pieces that do imitate nature and all it's magnificence. Maybe you'll find a new way to look at those pieces, and discover a new reason to love -AZUL- and FINESMITH. I hope so.

What a joy each of these designers are, and without them, I could not do this, so thank you:

  1. Caryn, I love you like the sister I never had. Your stylings have gotten so good. Congrats Doll! Hope your health is better than mine right now. lol We're both stuck inside. lol Everytime you blog I share It with G+ and everyone seems to like it. Sometimes I share it with FB too. I have always backed you even when you first started. I
    m so happy you stuck with MVW until you graduated. It seems to have done a lot for you. We share interests in so many ways, It's cool! Love ya gf. Hugs♥ Blue

  2. Blue, You're one of the many indoor angels I know. The more I've shared my own health hiccups, the more I've learned of others and their burdens. If not them, then their children or parents, or so many other things. Together we're all stronger than when we're trying to make it through this world alone. Thank you for sharing the blog with others. I enjoy fashion more than I ever knew I could. It HAS been good to me and still feels exactly where I should be. I love having a voice, even more than the fashion, and reaching out to a world who needs to know they're loved and they're not the only one struggling. When I know my voice ripples like a cool lake in late August in the back woods after a rock plunks into its stillness, I know I'm not completely useless. ~smiles and sends warm hugs to you <3
