warrior princess

April 27, 2010








Zac Posen x Target dress. Frye boots.

Playing with the snaps was initially my favorite thing about this dress until I realized that it moreover contributes to my goal of looking like a warrior princess. And usually Target quality is a hit-or-miss for me but this looked promising in the lookbook and fitted surprisingly well once on. The slightly flared hemline is itching to be layered with heavy jackets but will still be worn lovingly through the summer heat. I also found a lonely chambray dress hanging on the rack that I didn't even realize was a part of the collection and took it home with me as well. Can't wait to force my new purchases to befriend all the dusty pinks and nudes in my closet.

    "Holy Moly!", "Shezzam!", "Holy Heaven!" "So, So, Smokin' Hott!" (hey, the left corner of the field in middle teaser/pic seems "almost ablaze!" :)

    "WOW!' Raych; mere words seem somewhat lacking, Dear!" :)

    Ya know, while appreciating the "grand beauty" of the teaser pic --- and "SERIOUSLY!!!"(lol), it was mos' def' quite the teaser, as i could hardly await in anticipation "w/bated breath" the remainder of your "visual feast!" --- pondering, wondering what/how you might title the post; "honest-to-god," i truly first came up with "warrior-princess" & immediately, thereafter, "goddess-lover." Hey, as the sayin' goes: "great minds..." :)

    "Warrior-Princess," of course, noting the "bold-fierce dynamic" simultaneously with your "regal/royal nature & bearing." :)

    And speaking of nature, your ingeniously choosing of such wondrous & lovely nature settings & backdrops, Raych --- to seemingly "enfold & embrace you," in your own "gorgeous lovliness," Sweetheart; well, it jus' creates this most "romantically, dreamy air!" Thus, the suggestion of, invoking of, "divine goddess/lover", babe! :)

    I mean, even down to details of your "dreamy nails" "dramatically captivating," Raych; your presentation is one of sheer impeccable "artistic & beatific vision!" :)

    And all-together, the combined effect/impact of this so exquisitely beautiful pictorial is, indeed, suggestive of "gloriously, heaven-on-earth!" "Ahhh!', 'Oh Wow!', Raych, to so fortunately be in that fabulous field frolicking so ...! Hey, a guy can most wonderfully dream, right?!" :)

    Namaste,
    XoXo

  29. It's totally great

  32. I WANT THAT DRESS SO BAD!!! But I can't spend $70 on it :(
    I might get the tank top with Zac written on it though

  33. Cant believe the collection came out early. Ugh..there is absolutely no point in me trying now, only to be disappointed by the empty racks. The rivets are beautiful on the dress. Thought Libertine's quality was not so good but Zac Posen really worked it!

  34. Hey there,
    I posted a link to this on my blog .... along with my quest for that dress ...

    It looks absolutely stunning on you.

  43. the 4th picture from the top is absolutely stunning. that dress looks fantastic on you. and i'm slightly envious of the fact that you have a field like that one...

  44. These pictures are stunning! I love them. And the dress is lovely :)

  45. What an awesome dress! The metal work on it is very cool. I knew that Zac Posen was doing a line for Target, I will definitely have to check it out!

  46. Ahhhh, I love that first and third shot. Makes me want to cry with... goodness!

  47. BEAUTIFUL PICTURES!!! They look so great--the color scheme and everything.

    ...following up on above, "SERIOUSLY!!!", Raych you ought to most definitely send this photoshoot to Zac Posen & Co., as he'd have to be legally blind not to be absolutely amazed & impressed the way you're stylin' his creation, babe! It's not really so much a matter of your "ownin it;" you, my Dear, "alchemically transform it" into something seemingly "other-worldly beautiful!" :)

    And it's really hard to imagine any other woman on this here planet, babe, able to "breathe so much life & spirit" into a garment as you do with this here dress! Your very spirit seems to jus' "magically interwine" with its spirit, and thusly, you're not merely wearing it --- the two of you are like, so "esoterically connected," in a sense "spiritually dancing & makin' love," Sweetheart! :)

    Honestly, there's this "so exquisite, ethereal beauty" throughout, bordering on the sublime, Sweetheart! And Zac would have to be an "aesthetically blind" fool, not to be somehow "moved & wowed by it!" :)

    So who knows, if he doesn't offer you an outright modeling contract, i wouldn't be surprised at all if he did; then, at the very least, Raych, he'd likely truly want/desire you to "breathe such life & beauty" into even more of his creations in some kinda collaborative venture! Hey, i know i absolutely, certainly would! You jus' never know ... :)

    Namaste,
    XoXo

  56. Wow, Really really nice photos! Love them, your dress is awsome, as always, thans for sharing.
