“Light can only be understood with the wisdom of darkness.”
We have all at one time or another have felt lost or hopeless. Whether it be work related, a bad relationship, or just plain down on life. Sometimes it’s just a matter of changing your outlook on that thing to bring you out of the funk. Other times we need a helping hand to turn it around. There are times where it takes a day or two and others where it takes weeks, months, even years. I’ve been there myself, more then a few times. You can learn about yourself in those times. Do you fight? Do you give up? I say don’t give up. There’s always a light in the dark, or in terms of this picture, the birds that save you from drowning. Learn, grow, live.
The idea for this came together after I went over to Zibska for the first time with Portia. She was shopping for things to use in her own plans and I just started looking around. The Aderyn set caught my eye right away and I just knew I had to have it. A certain someone always talks about how she usually builds a styling around one piece. I tend to struggle a bit more there, maybe due to less options, or just not being as creative as she is. This time though I truly understood what Portia has told me. The birds were the genesis for the idea and it came together nicely. I was very impressed with the uniqueness of all of the offerings that Zib Scaggs has in store. It could be the place that really spurs my styling to go further.
I combined the Aderyn set with the Taisto set to make the birds around the waist. I loved the arms but felt like as a bigger fella, I might need a few more birds to get me out of the water. It was fun to make it work pretty much how I had pictured it in my head. There was a need for something to wear around my neck, it was just too bare to work. I tried numerous necklaces and stoles but nothing was striking my fancy. Then I remember that [CerberusXing] had a new scarf at The Mens Dept this round. After taking a look at it I knew it was what I needed to top this off. If you’d like to pick it up yourself make sure you head over there before this round ends on February 29th. Stay tuned for some new -Nivaro- later on!
