Ah, this makes me want to run out of the house this minute in search of a good linen button down, fabric to make a snakeskin skirt, beads to make a bunch of bracelets and then rummage through my jewelry drawers for all my great rings. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous.
I love that the way this cuff this keeps the shirt looking structured, even though the shirt seems a bit shapeless. Also something about the textures and colors in this are striking a delightful cord for me.
also, the rosaries are interesting–especially that she is wearing five and not some other number. i think her fashion may also be function, of sorts, as a crown of five skulls was worn by the deity who this rosary indicates. look up “mahakala” if interested.
i love the roll.
and the bone beads [hopefully recycled, not hunted].
the pants and skulls are an exotic and matching team.
bone itself is “grounding” so it makes the outfit not ‘wild’.
i think of these things!
this side view made this just a perfect photo.
:) @Martine, thank you- good catch. i could learn more about Tibetan beads. also, i think i have memories of seeing exotic rare single beads in special stores made from bone. that’s how i learned about hunted bone , ivory. wood or not, i got the feeling of “grounded”, which makes sense- wood is still grounding like trees themselves :)
Shows the incredible talent of the photographer! To have caught my interest (and envy) because it’s a fabulous photo of someone who has immense style and confidence and yet all I can see is an arm!! Would this have had the same impact if you’d taken a full picture of her I wonder? Fabulous :-)
