The sound of each step was interrupted by the heavy breathing. As the eyes rolled around in darkness, the heart pounded and stomach cringed. Where am I?
Gathering all the nerves, I climbed up the stairs that seemed to lead no where. When there was no more to climb, my gut lead me to what seemed like a door. Pushed and pulled one too many times before the door finally let itself open.
I was blinded by the aureate golden light that lit up a small passage with crafted pillars on either side. I walked slowly, looking around; absorbing all the magic around me. At the end of the passage, was a mirror. Just as I got closer to my unrecognisable reflection, I heard someone say my name. I flew back to reality when I saw my photographer grinning at me, waiting for me to pose. Giggling at my silly dream, I carried on with the shoot.
Does this happen to you? When you wear something so beautiful that you get into a dreamy world? What got me musing is this beautiful dress from Rutu Neeva. The colour made the dress so mystical. The sparkling jewellery from The Mauve Unit was the perfect match to it.
