Lookbook: A Storm in Summer

If only there could be an invention that bottled up a memory, like scent. And it never faded, and it never got stale. And then, when one wanted it, the bottle could be uncorked, and it would be like living the moment all over again.

I love the feeling that comes to mind when you think of a summer thunderstorm. I'm reminded of Rebecca and Mr. Rochester at Thornfield Hall but also craggy cliffs along the sea and lots of mist in the air. The look is bohemian in dark tones of mint green and blue with elements like lace applique and tassels. The beauty look is fresh and dewy with damp, windblown hair.

The road to Manderley lay ahead. There was no moon. The sky above our heads was inky black. But the sky on the horizon was not dark at all. It was shot with crimson, like a splash of blood. And the ashes blew towards us with the salt wind from the sea.”
