I am back!!! I just got back from a short trip to Spain and Portugal and I miss it already. Anyways, I am glad to be back and I have been quite busy checking out all the new releases I missed out during my absense. Today I mixed some new and old items from Paper Couture and my new skirt from Royal Blue to create today’s extravagant, over the top look. After all, Spring is all about flowers~
The whole look started off with the flower sculptie skirt from Royal Blue. I have always been a big fan of Marni Grut. Her corky avant-garde fashion style has won my heart from the first time I stepped into her store as a newbie almost two years ago. Spring 2009 release is no disappointment. There are so many cute items but this skirt just screamed “wear me”.
I added the flower headpiece and hair (Frida) from Paper Couture, part of 2009 Spring/Summer Collection. I tinted the flower head piece a bit darker to match the skirt. For the top, I pulled out of one of Paper Couture’s earlier collection. I edited the arms for a tighter fit to accentuate the silhouette of the skirt. I added pink/mauve pumps from Maitreya keeping with the same color scheme. Perhaps it’s too much pink, but since we are playing with too many shapes, I thought keeping the color paillete monotonous would tame the look a bit. For accessories, I just added some gold drop earrings from Paper Couture and gold clutch from Fleur.
Note the skin is a recent group gift from Rockberry. It’s been blogged all over, but I think it looks great on me too.
One more thing, the poses used for this blog are from Behaviour Body located at Baiastice. These are part of the animated pose sets. These are looped animated poses which are more appropriate for the runway or AO. Be sure to go to the store and try them. I love these and can’t wait to use them on the runway.
