Oh, the Designer Showcase Network dropped another stunning dress on me. This lovely Hothouse Flower from Ingenue showed up in my inbox and reminds me how much I love Ingenue’s lovely vintage clothing. This dress, however, seems to indicate some new, more contemporary, styles are coming out as well. The sculptie bodice is a delight and after increasing it just a bit to fit the bust, it was perfect. I also have to give her props for attaching the bodice to the right pec, leaving the spine and chest free for jewelry.
There was a little girl who had a little curl, right in the middle of her forehead. Okay, you all know I edit hair all the time, tinting it to suit, moving a strand of hair out of the way for a hat or for a photo, depending on the need. I just always make sure I am working with a copy. Now I have no sorry tale of woe, nothing like that. No, what I have is a sorry tale of not looking from multiple angles. I recently edited this hair a bit because I wanted my earrings to show in an outfit. So there I was shooting this outfit and noticing this curl going in front of my face and wanting to move it, but try as I might I could not select it. I kept missing. Finally, I cam out to see what in the heck is going on…and that one curl was about half a meter in front of my face, just so well lined up with my other hair, I could not see it from the angles I had been looking. So definitely, I had a curl right in the middle of my forehead and leading by half a meter. Moral of the story: After you are done editing, cam from multiple anges to check for silly things like that.
So, I was in a blue mood today and I don’t mean unhappy, soulful or sad. No, I just wanted some blue clothes and blue jewelry and to play me some blues on ITunes. So I put on some Gatemouth Brown and rooted around in the semi-organized chaos I call my inventory. The first thing I pulled out were the stockings from League. Now, I know you don’t start an outfit from the stockings, but I didn’t care, I wanted to wear them and I knew I could find something to suit. Sure enough, this skirt from Sugar Cube was perfect, so it was simply a matter of finding a shirt, some accessories and I would be good to go.
Cube Sugar is new to me and what a find it was for me. I definitely will be going back again and again. These pink and teal plaid pants came from there and I could not be happier. I love the look. I am delighted that they are mod, allowing me to widen the bottom just enough to go over the tops of my ankle boots. I love everything about them, including the way the seams meet – a challenge with plaids.
