Bandanna day

neko02


Oops, it's bandanna day! I admit that I completely forgot until after I'd photographed myself in this outfit, and then I scrambled for something appropriate. *cough* Moving-house-brain aside, I am happy to honor this day because I've watched several close family members endure chemotherapy (my stepmother, my mother-in-law), and I've seen their grace as they've dealt with the results.

My mother-in-law took to wearing amazing hats -- large and red and lovely. When her hair grew back after treatment she kept the hats as dress-up items for my daughter, turning something sad into something joyful.

The hair I'm sporting is new from Gritty Kitty, called Cain. I adore the v-bangs and the choppy back, and if my hair were remotely straight or bidable I'd have this haircut IRL. The dress is a pretty creation from Vanitas Vesture -- I really like the sleek yet light line and the carefully drawn fabric, a perfect summer dress.
