Harper Beresford falls in love with fashion, one day at a time.

True Blue

True blue, your silent cry
And I can see it and I want to touch you
Please, cause no one sleeps
True blue is breaking the waves
I used to know all the gates of love
And all the love was streaming through you

~ “Eclipse Blue” by Nosaj Thing

True Blue

I put together this true blue outfit because I just loved all the elements and wanted to wear something that made me feel good. Start with this open-necked…

Building a Better You

The word is out on the grid. The Belleza Mesh body for women is almost ready to be released. Tricky Boucher is this close > < to making many women’s (and men’s) dreams come true. I was disgustingly lucky to get my hands on one of the first copies sent out and I put it through its paces.

First, let me say, I have not been a huge user of mesh body parts. I have blogged them here but it’s not my…

“Where does the rainbow end,
in your soul or on the horizon?”
~ Pablo Neruda

Rainbow's End

Something bright and colorful for an unusually cold and cloudy day where I am. This great tie-dyed dress from Cortez Brandriss comes in several colors/patterns but I was feeling the hippie love so I got this one. Something about it just makes me happy. I accessorized with some great Indian-inspired jewelry from Dima…

Well, I’ve got a woman named a-Ruby Pearl
A be-boppin’ baby in a be-boppin’ world
She’s got the rhythm from her head to her feet
She knows at first every brand new beat

My mystery girl took a trip over to the Designer Showcase to dress up today. First, this dress from GraceHaddington is a new creation with one of her great texture-change HUDs and a gorgeous sheer panel at the decolletage. Grace is the queen of textures, applying them to her clothes in great…

“Trees’re always a relief, after people.” ~ David Mitchell

Solitude

I am an introvert. I like my alone time a lot. I like quiet. So a walk in the woods is a good thing, and dressed as a woman warrior, I can let my inner fierce out. I dressed this way because two elements I wanted to show: first, these great mesh gladiator sandals with knee pads from Erratic Rain, which she is featuring at Uber. Available…

You don’t have to be an heiress to look like one. If you act like one then everyone will just presume you are one. ~ Paris Hilton

The Heiress

Some girls can show up at a formal event with a streak of purple in their hair and a neck full of gems and pull it off. Usually it’s the heiress, the one who doesn’t need to worry if anyone else thinks she looks good—she knows she does. A sexy formal like the newest…

Living Grandly

I’m reading Special Topics in Calamity Physicsright now and rather enjoying it, so I snagged one of Dad’s pithy ideas for my quote. I hope you’re…

“If you want me just whistle. You know how to whistle don’t you? Just put your lips together and blow.” ~ Lauren Bacall

Whistle

Lauren Bacall recently passed away and I wanted to do a tribute look for her but who can possibly replicate such beauty? Only she could be herself, because it was her soul that gave light to her elegance. Her famous quote is a perfect sassy elegant rejoinder and encapsulates…
