When a Picture Is Not Enough

There were a few dresses at Fashion For Life that really needed more than a picture. A thousand words might help, but I think in this case a video is better. These two dresses from Likka House are great fun costumes. They would justify planning your own circus party – Look at the carousel horses. When you are running out and about you can turn them off so you won’t lag. 

Ghee’s Gown of a Different Color and the Laced Up shoes are kind of crazy wonderful creations that reminds me of that old group, Not Possible In Real Life. Do you remember the group? I loved it and miss it quite a bit – it was a celebration of all that is special and unique about Second Life – just as these outfits are. 

Forgive my poor videography, my computer is old and tired and when I do a video it crawls in a corner, curls into a fetal position and whimpers.

Chinoiserie and Marie Antoinette

oct13_018

The recent release of the Shelby Doll Dress from VoguE put me in mind of Marie Antoinette. She was a huge promoter of Chinese art and the style of Western decor infused with Chinese sensibility called Chinoiserie. Chinoiserie is a French world meaning China-esque, a cultural appropriation that has produced amazing design in home decor and fashion.

The Mad Hatter Goes for Baroque

aug18_007

The theme of August’s Collabor88 is Baroque – a thematic direction sure to bring dramatic and bold fashions such as this confection from Nylon Outfitters – the Baroque Bustle Mini. It comes in pink, gold, lavender, black and green, I had to go for the pink because it looks like a lovely little bonbon. Continue reading

Devil in the Details

It’s trite but true that success and artistry is found in the details and, in this case, in Les Petits Details. That’s where I found this gorgeous and oh-so-romantic dress at Vintage Fair. Les Petits Details is new to me, which is why events like Vintage Fair can be so exciting – adding the thrill of discovery to the already proven pleasure of great fashion.
