Do-all nature...

aka versatility, which isn't just a tricky way to say poetry... baboomtish.

We all have dual natures, sometimes these are duel natures.  You know?  Like Bruce Wayne/Batman... hopefully not Jekyll and Hyde... Most times however, they're do all natures.  Multi-tasking.
...like my boots and black skinnies... doing all and double time over the weekend!

(middle) black skinnies...and do not tell me you all have never worn your jeans twice in a row without washing! If I, being a pendantic laundry Diva, do it, I know y'all do it too! * OTK boots

Diva! Love your rings! Big-Chunky-Statement making rings. Of course your artistic photographer never ceases to impress! I really like that multi color couch of yours :o)

P.S. ... I think I have a multi facet personality not just dual :P

I spy the Batman belt in action! And that disk ring is making my heart beat erratically. You on the other hand have all three natures! Wouldn't like to compare you to your boots and skinnies, but you're just too good.

I wish my mother could photoshop a two in one. As a matter of fact I wish she could actually operate the interweb. Had a pretty cold day in Australia this week?

Dina's Days said...

These pictures are nuts! I love it! And your accessories.. I die!

Rachel {Inspiration in Italy} said...

You look amazing in both of these outfits! I can't get over how stunning you are. The green shirt looks so hot on you! How do you have such a perfect body and face, my friend?? :)

Sher said...

Lol, I definitely wear my jeans more than twice in a row without washing so I will not hold it against you! Especially when you're looking as breathtakingly gorgeous as you do here!!

Vintage Vixen said...

Oh my! I want every piece of your jewellery. How gorgeous is that rosette ring, only divine ...and you look amazing in green.
I wouldn't like to share how little I wash my jeans. I read somewhere that you're supposed to get at least 10 dasy wear between washes to keep the denim in tip-top shape.

Taj Acosta said...

Okay the accessories in this are killing it! How amazing are they!!! And your photos skills are sick girl! You never cease to amaze me ;) True story on the dual natures, I really think it's one of the things that makes women so amazing. We can be soft and motherly and caring beyond belief. And also strong and tough and fighters for our rights and beliefs taking no prisoners! xoxo

SabinePsynopsis said...

Oh Dusk, I love your dual natures. I bet there are some more glamorous personalities lurking in you!

suruchi said...

Hi Dusk..
I am convinced that even when you'd be doing nothing and just looking at the camera...you'd create a masterpiece...

The pics are marvellous...
Goes to prove that you realized we just can't have enough of ONE you...so there is double the pleasure...

You create two ekdum different looks so well merged...
Nothing like I have ever seen before...at least not so bloody brilliantly done...

Keep it up:-)

StuddedLilly said...

Tanvi said...

This is totally random and not related to this post -

1. I don't find SRK attractive either. I too like Vinod Khanna, Feroz Khan and even Dharmendra [am I born in wrong decade?]

2. Thanks for your extremely heart warming comments on ALL my posts! ... I can REALLY relate to everything you say!

3. I have indeed worked really hard for this body [and the shoulders and quads! ;)] I used to be touch 78kgs at one point. Always enjoyed fashion from outside but could fit into anything. So really enjoying this phase of my life and body.

I am glad I met you through this bloggin world :) Thanks!!!

Dusk said...

Hello lovelies! Thank you for your lovely and generous blush-inducing comments and my apologies for not responding sooner.
...I've been trying to catch up on all your blogs in between my daily life and training new Jedi knights at the Jedi Temple so apologies if I haven't visited yet, I'll get there!

I will reply in depth to your comments later as it is now almost 3am and I am sleeptyping hence the Jedi comment. I'm obviously dreaming.

May The Force Be With You
...in my case... The Farce. :)

Pink Blog Girl said...

I love the emerald shirt! So pretty :)

Dusk said...

Thank you lovely beings!

@ The Sydney Girl - goldstone is manmade hon but in a good way, a symbol of what GOOD THINGS humankind can achieve once our mind is set to it. So... again, very very indicative of who you are and where you're at.

I remiond you of Yanu? Hope that's a good thing?!

@ Tanvi - I adore your multi-faceted personality!

@ Sonali - Photoshop Elements 5. It's old!!!!!!

@ Taj - absolutely well said hon!

@ Crazy Diamond - so are you!

@ gorgeous Sher, Vix and Cheryl - yayy!

@ Fourth Daughter - thumb ring, found that for a dollar at markets ages ago. Priceless now. :) Have I seen that jacket on your fab blog?

Thanks for the compliments re the emerald colour on me (it's a favourite!) and my photo skills darlings.
Oh and my jewelry. Entire collection I have on (except wedding ring)...hmmm... retail value is about AUD$250. You better believe I only paid about 10% of that. I love sales... I never pay full price for anything.

...will get to your blogs soon...

Tuesday said...

I adore your jewelry collections hun, I'm a big fan of HUGE bangles and rings and necklaces and I don't go for full price too I always wait for sale, I'm a cheapo!

Great PS skills you're the best!!
