Brown paper packages tied up with string,
It’s hard not to think of that song when wearing pants like this. Sound of Music opened up all sorts of possibilities, I know that I myself have seen upholstery books in old second hand stores and thought ‘those would make such cute pants or skirts’. When I saw the Indiana Boho Set from SySy Designs on, that was my first thought, wow SySy has made pants from tapestry. Not only do I love the heavy look of these pants, you know ‘real’ weight, the kind you need in cooler weather, but the colours are divine.
These would be the ultimate find in a second hand store, I know-as I used to sell vintage clothing RL-that these are a treasure, you can scour stores and markets and garage sales for months, picking up bits and pieces, and once in a blue moon something like these just pokes out from under some other items; and you are in heaven.
The wrap top that comes with the set is a beautiful large stitch sweater, and as the trim is the same fabric as the pants it has that real handmade feel to it. Beautifully finished off with the braided belt and buckle detailing that as part of the pants. This Kestrel Hair is from Kin and is her freebie at Hair Fair, definitely a style worth having, I already love long and straight, with the addition of the leather straps, it’s perfect.
Another wonderful addition is the Studio Sidhe Joy Beaded Jewelry, Faery was getting so concerned about all her friends being so stressed out lately she calls them her Happy Beads, there are earrings, necklaces, bangles, bellyrings. All beautifully crafted, with a beautiful blend of colours in the beading.
The little hippy sets are easily enjoyed, they have a definite versatility in the set; with their trimmed leggings and mismatch lengths skirt. Dancing on the beach, or grabbing your favourite shopping basket and doing a round of the markets it all works. The light and breezy look of the fabric has a definite resort wear style to it, so for island hopping it’s wonderful.
The Bliensen+MaiTai Wind Chime earrings in snow just complimented the whole look,they also reminded me of taking things apart and wearing them- I kind of did that once in the 80’s accidentally on purpose, acquired two drops from a chandelier in a building, I looked one it as a public service though, the damn thing was hung so low I smacked my head on it. Worn with the absolutely Stunning In Space hair by Curio – at Hair Fair – this style is Chic Perfection (Green pic is flipped, the bangs cover the left eye) I love how the black textures from Curio look with this style, giving it real depth.
Definitely more of a casual look, the Capri Pants and Short n Striped tops by SySy Designs are a terrific combo. The capri pants are beautifully crafted, the texture is fantastic on them, I don’t thing you can ever have too many sets of Capris, and with the upcoming winter boots, if they are the right length they are perfect to wear with. The tie tops are fun and playful, the knit style fabric makes them snuggly, and they would be great in layers over or under other items.
Wearing the Cafe hair from Analog Dog -Hair Fair – with them, I think this style is so glamorous in a bombshell kind of way, but love how it can look just stunning no matter how you are dressed. All the skins shown are from Damiani and are the Michelle V2 Skins in sunkissed, beautiful work done on these and I just love the nose, be sure to check out the Demos.
Also wearing the Tassel Wedges from J’s with and without the stunning wraparound parts that go up the leg so magnificently.
