My First Heels Lark
Lark betrays the awkward posture of a young girl's first steps in grownup shoes. Daddy says "hold that pose!" and captures her, shy smile and all, dressed in her plum colored party frock and new shoes with her first high heels. Lark's handpainted blue eyes glace sideways through wisps of chestnut brown mohair, styled in two side ponies tied up with silk ribbons. The bodice of her frock is a knit boucle, shot through with a bronzy metallic thread, long sleeved and with a dropped waistline over a short pleated skirt of silky lavender with gold tulle overlay. A wide sash made of bronze colored raw silk finishes the look with an impressive matching rose at the side. Her heels; are black leather ankle straps with a chunky heel, worn over patterned tights.
