Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds

Brunello Cucinelli fair isle sweater. Anna Sui dress. Calvin Klein belt. Vintage costume pendant necklace worn as headband. Vintage costume feather & diamond rings. Black ribbed tights. Chanel ruffled ballerinas.
"Someday we'll find it / The Rainbow Connection / The lovers, the dreamers & me" - Kermit Frog, The Rainbow Connection
I've never seen a rainbow in real life before (except for the hazy reflection in a summer sprinkler), but one stretches across this frock's midnight blue background: it's studded with sequined stars & fields of flowers growing in A Wrinkle in Time phantasmagorical land. The belt's buckle is an amalgam of the Tiffany bean & a spaceship; if it could fly me to the moon, I'd look down to see a strand of pearls in my hair & a pair of ballerinas on my feet - Hermes (the Greek messenger god) may have had wings on his shoes, but mine have ruffles & the Chanel insignia.
