Sometimes it’s fun to put an outfit together exactly backwards which is what I did with this one. I started from the outside with the Haute Style Co. jacket – part of the Paulie Dos outfit. I bought the outfit to get this jacket which is just a luscious brown with blue print. The skirt was next from Hal*Hina – the blue bolero outfit. The top is from Kookie and has made a few appearances before in other colors.
My father played banjo and sang in a country/bluegrass band and I have lost count of all my cousins and other relatives who are in the music industry – so I come by a head packed with musical references quite honestly even if I inherited my singing voice from the “sings like a sick cat” side of the family. Everytime I see a newsboy cap like this one from Haute Style Company, that old Jimmy Brown the Newsboy song pops into my head… and it just won’t go away. No matter that the real Jimmy Brown sang “I got no hat upon my head, no shoes upon my feet.”
This morning I put on an charming crimson Spider Dress from Haute Style, the oh-so-beautiful Tuli Elizabeth Gothic Vamp skin and the delicate Eww Spiders collection from EarthStones, wanting to look put together and elegant while hopping the grid.
