This is such a lovely, spring-like dress and today is sunny and bright after weeks of rain and snow and ick, that I could not resist pulling it out. A lovely vintage gown from the duchess of vintage, Neferia Abel of Ivalde, this has a lovely satin floral print with sheer tulle on the bodice.
I love newspapers and so why not show that love with a newspaper dress? LeLutka, more recently Cachet, entered the sorority of newpaper honoring creators with this lovely little dress that is dressed up a bit with a lovely net ruffle at the back.
I think you should picture me shaking my fist and hollering, “I’ll get you, my pretty!” after completing this last, but certainly not the least, Dress Me Up Challenge. It was a tough one. I only hope I succeeded with the brief from Luna Jubilee.
I think you should bring Disco back! That’s right – Disco … but Disco Skating baby!! Legwarmers, skates, that onepiece leotard that looks like a bathing suit and big poofy pigtails. Good Luck!! *giggles*
I have one big request. Bax Coen, make me some roller skates!!!
LeeZu Baxter has made a gorgeous jacket that I absolutely adore even though it eats up my necklace attachment points. Actually, I totally love it so long as I look at it from the front. I like it from the back, but wish she had not put text on the back. I am not a text on my clothing sort of gal.
When I received a promotional copy of the new Stiletto Moody shoes tonight called Audrey, I could not resist being a total cliche and pairing it with the Hepburn dress from Azul. Now I confess to being as hesitant as the next person to splurging on these shoes but I was counting and figuring to see if I could swing it because they looked so lovely and might work so well in photos.
I have been thinking about getting a nice men’s suit for some time, so Analu’s Armoire Diversity Challenge helped me take the plunge. I love the look – it makes me think of Marlene Dietrich, Greta Garbo and Lauren Bacall – the many glorious actresses who showed how great women can look. They may have dressed like men, but it only accentuated their femininity.
My friend Miffy (Miffyhoi Rosca) has been making clothes a little over a year now. I have spent hours sitting on her Electro-Kitty pig watching while she concocts one of those outrageous belts with filled with different kinds of candy or cigarettes or looped together a prim skirt and admired her sure and confident whipping of prims into shape. Her style is youthful and fun and just keeps getting better. Once or twice a week she drops her newest and latest on me to check out. Lately, though, her style is branching out into more colors and I am finding it much more appealing for me personally. Take this lovely red dress.
I ushered the marvelous runway show of Eshi Otawara’s new collection on Saturday – an extraordinarily simple task richly rewarded with one of her smokey tux gowns that I wore as I greeted people. After the show, I went to her shop and dithered forever trying to decide what to purchase because I wanted so many. One purchase that I did not dither over was the fantastical Green Blossoms, the outfit I am wearing here…and yes, it is completely different.
For my last Dress Me Up Challenge, Harper said “Nuff of this pink stuff. I want some hard core goth–skin and all. Make all the vamp boys sweat. Make all the emo girls suffer. Do it up, Casja ;)” Well, I don’t think vampires sweat, but I can check on that. I think I may have missed it on this challenge, I don’t see much sweating and suffering in my reader’s future as a result of this outfit.
