Ahhh life.... what would it be without a touch of drama?  ["better!"]  Who said that??  Come on now.  In every life, there is drama.  It is through drama we build the strength to love oneself no matter what and laugh in the face of adversity.  It is through drama that we amalgamate our traits that define us.

Dang.  That's Mariana Trench!! 

I wasn't going to photograph this look.  This to me is just a very casual, have errands will run them not worthy of being photographed look.  Somedays I even [gasp] wear just a sweater and jeans!  I know!  Off the wall right?  Next I'll be admitting I wear neutrals.
...and then please wave hello to that pig flying by your window.   And yes those shoes are stuck to my feet okay?

Click on the last 2 to see large pics.

Speaking of drama... found this, thought I'd share it with you.  Just because.  After the jump... so...

This was 2 years ago.  I do not recall having a fringe so I do not know what those ridiculous wisps are.  A snippet from the promo ad for Hallmark Channels 'India Special'. 



That first pic is so cool!

Get you, adverting Hallmark! Such a classy advert, too. Not a blue bear or a big eyed puppy in sight. Bet you increased their sales no end, you fabulous woman.
I don't believe you could ever dress "casual" and just look casual. You're too much of an artist not to inject fabulous colour and wit into an outfit.

Hello, my friend Dusk is a celebrity! The wisps do not look ridiculous, they look sultry, and don't you dare say otherwise :)

Also, I'm sorry, but I don't believe that you wear NEUTRALS. I mean, your 'run errands' outfit is more exciting than my 'outing with friends' outfit! I love the hearts. And the lips (on your face and on your belt, heehee). And the electric-mind-of-its-own scarf.

I actually love the look...see I love casual.

The fedora is awesome!

I realize that I really do need to start wearing more color.

I do not know what to say except I love you a little more every day! :) [How gay! :P] Haha!!!

***It is through drama we build the strength to love oneself no matter what and laugh in the face of adversity.*** Seems like you are talking to me directly! I absolutely agree!!!!

I love the shades of purple. The hat and your luscious hair! The color is REALLY visible in these pictures! And the last clip. I DIE!

Hi Dusk...
“And then please say hello to that pig flying by your window”, now...a witty woman with charms...
It does not get any sexier than this:-)

And never mind if those shoes are stuck to your feet...
I don’t hear anyone complaining:-)

Turquoise and Lily said...

wow.. i love your style.. so chic. love the hat, top and cardigan.. :)

Hippie Holly said...

So very cool!!!! You look all dreamy and lovely in that video. Your causal errands outfit is very very fun. Those hearts, those lips and those buttons very very nice! I especially love that scarf, I had something similar as a child, my mum used to call it my leash, I loved that thing my grandma had knitted it for me with a whole lot of pom-poms on each end! OK must stop blabbering! :)

Cheryl: Oh to Be a Muse said...

i think this look is so you! i'm glad you posted it. and look how dreamy you are in that ad. :)

Nickie Frye said...

I love your pins & your belt buckle. HeeHee!!! There's nothing as fabulous as a beautiful woman with a sense of humor. Have a great day! xoxo

I love the first pic..U look so mysterious like a spy. I dont know why but Humphrey Bogart came to my mind when I saw these pics. Please tell me u know who he is!!Even when u run errands, u are so divalicious..

I think we need to surgically separate those ur shoes!!

U look so ethereal in the promo ad..

btw, I was called "Drama Queen" when I was growing up:-) I love the high and low of emotions - brings the flavor in life!!

Vibhuti said...

You invite me to your blog with such tempting headlines and then I remain hooked for good! The content is even better than the cover...I am going gaga over this look, really! This look is as pretty as those hearts on your top! :))
And I think I love those lips on your belt..You didn't do a detail pic on that? :(
You teach me to be reckless when putting a look together and the outcome is THIS..FANTABULOUS!!!!

Vibhuti said...

And how could I not mention the Star Wars Badge on your lapel? That am sure is ur fav, na? :P

Barry said...

Namaste Dusk. I got your comment, I would LO-O-O-O-VE it if you would send me some photos of Sydney please!!! Believe me, if there's anywhere else I could live besides Canada it would be Australia. I've always said this.


Sher said...

Oh, I spot the Yoda lol! You're too cute, darling!

I really love how you wear purple, it's such a beautiful colour on you! And need I say more about the heart printed tee! I want it I want it I want it:)


Tamanna A. Shaikh said...

Oh boy!! You look so fresh!! Definitely do look like a killer on the run or a spy after a killer on the run!!

And you always get me with your humour. And wit.

The video wouldn't play :( Post it on your FB, will you?
