Lady Edwina in aqua; in blue

I saw Miss Mui Mukerji's post about this particular Nicky Ree suit and had to see if I could give it my own demonic twist. The inspiration for a demon-in-Ree comes from the Drive By Trucker's song Demonic Possession, one of my favorites of theirs that's been in my mind lately...

The suit is so decadent I could see John Malcovitch in it, you know? With a fake beauty mark, hanging off of a railing at Versaille, pondering how many of the lovely ladies he could talk into selling him their souls (or at least bodies)...

There are many ways to wear this (outfit stats are listed below), but I think my favorite is with the vest only and the capri pants. It reminds me of the pond scene with Mr. Darcy when he ungirds himself so that his shirtsleeves are hanging out. "Oh! Naked wrists!" Or no, wait, that scene from Angels and Insects where the naturalist spots the elegant veins of the governess and suddenly realizes that she's got a hidden wild side.

I think it's the fabric that makes this suit wild -- the vivid combination of colors, the cut, the tailoring. It's clear that Nicky's imagination was flying when she made it, tripping on some dream of Versaille. I'm glad we can all join her there.

I had to go aqua for this suit! With aqua shoes and aqua hair and aqua skin. What? Over the top? Okaaaay, I resemble that remark.
