I love that the fabric in this lovely blouse from Kunglers is called Tropicalia, I assume after the Brazilian music movement that incorporated the sounds and rhythms of Brazil with the psychodelic rock of the United States, most notably the music of Jimi Hendrix.  It’s a small reminder of the power of music – so powerful that the Tropicalistas were actually imprisoned for their music. You can read a little about the movement and list to a couple samples here.  The actual design of the blouse is quite sweet, with short puff sleeves finished with ribbon bows and a gentle ruffle around the collar. I paired its softness with the much more structured highwaist skirt from Maitreya that gives the traditional pencil skirt a new contemporary form.

The Party Pumps from Shiny Things are ideal. When you purchase one color of these shoes, you get two options, the blue with the black embellishment on the vamp, or the blue on blue. It comes in several other colors and always provides an elegant option.

The Jharna set from Earthstones beautifully complements and incorporates the colors in the blouse, bringing it all together. The lovely loose and lively hairstyle is from 0 Style.

Belleza’s Jesse Sunkiss 5 is a beautiful makeup with the rich lipstick color echoing the autumnal shades in the blouse. I had a lot of fun shooting this set and uploaded a few more pics that you can check out if you like on my flickr.
