[ s t y l e ] Bejewelled

Jewel embellished pieces have been in style for sometime but the 2009 Spring/Summer collections we have seen in RL runways are bolder, brighter, and more colorful.  They are more exotic, each piece making a statement on its own.  From gowns to everyday dresses, from jackets to skirts, from bags to shoes, each item is embellished to the max with rich ethnic inspired stones and gems.

To create the look in SL, I immediately thought of Mimikri’s latest release Topkapi in gold and green together with Paper Couture’s Tumbled Stone Statement jewelry.  Both are bold and exotic pieces that scream attention.  To tone down and polish the look, I added a feminine cropped cardigan, simple red pumps and violet clutch.  The whole look reminds me of a modern interpretation of Cleopatra so chose to wear a blunt cut bob from House of Heart.
