maiden of ancient wonders.


H&M pussybow blouse | Zara lace tiered skirt | Asos python print clutch | H&M gold choker & cuff | Steve Madden Grettta platform heels

Wanting to feel a bit like Cleopatra (or Nefertiti, she was quite a queen as well) today, I adorned my self with some gold jewelry and an asp print clutch. Sometimes it is the accents that make or break an outfit, and selecting such items can be a daunting task. Although, not as awe-inspiring as the work built in the sands by the ancient Egyptian builders' hands. I decided to go simple without all the fuss of a Great Royal Wife (more of my style anyways). The gold pieces in a way were a subtle farewell to the seemingly desert summer we had this year. Even though the extreme heat was quite puzzling to me like hieroglyphs, I am hoping this coming winter won't endure as long as the Nile.
