IFW10 – Balancing Act

Today’s the last day of International Fashion Week, which come to think of it, should probably be International Fashion Long Weekend or International Fashion Four Days. I wish it were a week – which would give me more days to spread out my posts about the designs I want to highlight – so I am not posting 4 times in one day. But I suppose there’s reasons for a shorter event – events like these are often balancing acts of meeting competing needs such as finding good times for people from around the world to participate in an event that spans every time zone.  So in honor of all the concerns of designers, customers, bloggers, models and anyone else that must be juggled by event organizers, I thought I would shoot this dress from Orage Creations in Olive Juice’s Ball Pit – where there are many balls in the air – and they are in very delicate balance.

The dress combines the system pieces with two fabulous sculpts for the bodice and skirt. I love how the bottom of the skirt unfolds almost like a flower. Although the texture looks almost metallic, the folds seem like petals.

The balls in the Ball Pit are modifiable, so I changed them from gray to pink – wanting more color. I love how they look with the gray dress. The shoes are from Kookie, the very chic City Weddges

The MiaMai hairbase with a bun attached works perfectly with the hat. The jewelry is from Donna Flora and the makeup is from 5th & Oxford’s Brooke, the Nightfall set.

    Yay for day-making! I love the ball pit and since you let us modify it so we can make the balls any color we want – it’s just a fabulous photo accessory
