So I am always a bit conflicted about studded clothing. Mainly because I have never worn studded clothing in my life, so I wonder how comfortable it is. Take this dress. I love the way the studs add visual interest, the flat planes of the skirt interrupted by the rows of studs – adding what feels like another dimension to the dress. But then I wonder, what does that feel like to sit on? Is it evenly spread enough so that it’s sort of like the bed of nails phenomenon, or do those little studs poke and prod? Maybe if you sit for just a minute it’s comfortable, but if you sit for a long time it is excruciating? Yeah, I actually spend time wondering what it would feel like for my pixel posterior to sit in my pixel dress with its pixel studs. But hey, it’s a great dress, isn’t it?
I added some shoes ISON – I think I got them at Collabor88 several months ago, so you should find them in the store now. I decided to go more romantic than a studded shoe – opting for this floral patterned tone on tone lace up shoe.
My jewelry is from Mandala – very luxe, very modern and totally glamorous.
I kind of love the juxtaposition of this retro cut with the modern styling of the dress and jewelry. The skin is the always gorgeous PXL Creations Sophia.
