The Bright Day Is Done, And We Are For The Dark.

"Finish good lady, the bright day is done, and we are for the dark." Antony and Cleopatra, Act 5 Scene 2.

I was reading this as a little girl and something clicked. I wanted to transport myself within the romantically dark dimensions those quotations held. I was completely spellbound by Shakespeare and the possibility of a dark, intoxicating love.

Hold your breath. Right now. That desperate lust for life you feel around 32 seconds? That's where I want to live.  That's where where I'll be residing, waiting for the right person... to join me. 

This gown by Camilla and Marc , with its feminine silhouette, halter style neck detail, fold over collar, and velvet embracing the hip line... had me hypnotized. I was drawn to it. Pairing it with these gloves from House of Mackage, and ear cuff from Amber Sceats, it is a look that held elegance and power for me. Everything Cleopatra would've possessed.
