INC skirt, Macy's
manaia necklace, Seattle craft fair
rhodium door hinge bracelet, Iolani Palace
To keep the focus on the color combination, I accessorized simply with a minimalist necklace and my favorite ornate bracelet.
Random reading commentary: I'm almost finished with Kittredge's "The Iron Thorn," which I picked up because it was on YALSA's Readers' Choice 2012 list. It's a light, diverting read, and I like the steampunk-ish setting, although the characterization doesn't really captivate me. However, the heroine Aoife is daring and determined. The one thing that irked me about the book is the poor cover illustration. This is what my library copy looks like:
Couturgatory - this outfit and this one seem much more practical for engine-tinkering. Thanks, Aya, for helping me deal with that poorly chosen cover! ;)
P.S. That harness that Aya's wearing in the first link? Put me down as intrigued ... it's not something that I would have even given a second thought to before, but Aya wears it so wonderfully.
