Saint Patrick’s Day 2013

No matter where you are — even if it’s in a virtual world — March 17 brings out the Irish in you in a good way.  We don’t go in for green beer too much in world; but we do party, quite a bit.  (Hey, any good excuse for a party!)  And, even though there have been several almost continuous venues all weekend, the most traditional place to go, and probably the purist Irish experience, is in Dublin region at that grid-wide famous pub, The Blarney Stone.

For anything in the mornings, I’m quite appropriately dressed here in a lovely silk mesh sheath from coldLogic that is very reminiscent to me of Anne Hathaway’s red-carpet gown for this year’s Oscars.  Being coldLogic, the fitting is excellent.  I pair it up with a light makeup palette and a loose mesh hairstyle from Truth, who’s essentially my go-to guy for non-exotic hair these days.  (It may be time for a mass inventory cleanout; I’ll have to consider.)

As the night comes on, even The Blarney Stone can see the occasional evening gown. Mine is extra special: my big donation purchase at Fashion For Life, a beautiful dress from Mohna Lisa Couture.  Made of a sparkling emerald ribbed satin mesh, it comes with its own earrings, and a pair of gauzy attachments at the breast and shoulder, as well as the fashion-required flounce at the lower legs. The makeup is, of course, more dramatic in this case — I added a line of heavier green eyeshadow, and gold lipstick with a shot of orange for the orange part of the Irish tricolor; and longer nails. Instead of the chunky onyx collar I wore in the morning, the vintage necklace here is finer, and has multiple small cabochon emerald beads.

I hope you had a good Saint Patrick’s Day, wherever you celebrated!
