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

Keep your face always toward the sunshine – and shadows will fall behind you. ~ Walt Whitman

Sunshine

This morning I woke to perfect sunshine, lovely warm air that wasn’t too humid, a dozen peaches, and the anticipation of my little cousin (she’s 12) coming to visit. I made a peach cobbler (gah, the putzing with the peaches!) and frozen yogurt (awesome) and we had burgers for lunch. Then I took my cousin…

The French Connection

I put on my rouge and wash my hands in front of the whole world! ~ Marie Antoinette

The French Connection

Genre opened earlier this month and the theme was Baroque, so of course, everyone threw their efforts at gilded furniture and voluminous dresses with an eye towards the court of Marie Antoinette. I gathered quite a few things from the event and crowded them into this blog because, as you know, excess was never a…

Oh I could drink a case of you darling
Still I’d be on my feet
oh I would still be on my feet

~ “A Case of You” by Joni Mitchell

A Case of You

Been having a few of those days lately where I just want to go home, sink into a chair, and have a glass of wine while I listen to my favorite music and relax. I feel like I am behind on a few tasks, least of which is showing this fabulous furniture, which I set up a…

Aubergine

“How can people say they don’t eat eggplant when God loves the color and the French love the name? I don’t understand.” ~ Jeff Smith

Aubergine

Eggplants are about to come into season, and I am prepared. The French word  for eggplant is, of course, “aubergine,” a much more luscious and beautiful word for their deep purple color. This dress made me think of that word. The color is not as blue black purple…

Rendezvous

Normally I do photos but today I am showing a video that my friend Phobos Jamberoo made so he could help me show the revamped RendeZvous animator. It’s been around a while (8 years!) but JenzZa Misfit and Valdarica Vale have completely redone the scripts on the animator since it’s first iterations. Now you can enjoy all the fun of…

“Five years from now, you’re the same person except for the people you’ve met and the books you’ve read.” ~ John Wooden

Five Years

I realized a couple days ago that I started my blog five years ago. The first year I blogged every single day, faithfully, and then after year two I kind of let myself off the hook for every day and now I average about 3-4 times a week (or sometimes twice a day as when I was…

Walk on Air Hair

Walk on Air Hair

Walk on Air Hair

I call this “Walk on Air” hair because I always find Wasabi Pills’ mesh hair so delightful. MissAllSunday Lemon was one of the first hair makers to work with mesh, and it shows. Her pieces are well-developed with gorgeous textures and she can jump genres from fantasy to casual in a snap.

Walk on Air Hair

MissAllSunday’s specialty is the braid, and she uses it liberally in her pieces for Hair Fair. Braided bangs…

Ensnared by Hair

Ensnared by Hair

I got Queue Marlowe’s hair for Hair Fair the moment she finished, slapped it on my head and went “wow”! Once again, Queue made a splash at Hair Fair with three new unique styles combining mesh and flexi and curls and braids. As always, they come with Queue’s great textures on her texture-change HUD.

Ensnared by Hair

Queue gives us a taste of what she’s good at. First the curls, which are bouncy and twisty and…

Honey Bear Hair

Honey Bear Hair

The styles Carina Larsen is offering at Hair Fair made me think of a honey bear because of their charming textures and styles.

Honey Bear Hair

Carina does include a men’s hair, which I wear myself, trying to make it as cute as the others. But for women there are three styles, one a generous gift!

Honey Bear Hair

All the styles include Carina’s texture-change HUD and the capability to change the colors of the ribbons. Find…

Buenos Aires Hair

Buenos Aires Hair

I named this after the beautiful capital of Argentina because this hair reminds me of the gorgeous women of that cosmopolitan city. (Also because I am running out of rhymes, but really, the hair is gorgeous.) Gia Pawpad has switched up her brand name and moved to mesh with a great texture change HUD that allows for such lovely color looks as these.

Buenos Aires Hair

Upswept or worn down, the hairstyles are…
