Kit and Kaboodle
Kit Maitland of CKS Designs is a ‘Spurta” -made up word I just came up with lol – she goes into hibernation for a while and then just Spurts forth with oooodles of newness. She also completely changes her spurts by creating lovelies that can cover all sorts of occasions and styles, which is just lovely when you are not really feeling a specific way with the season.
Caroline is one such Spurt, such incredibly vibrant colours that just leap out of the bag and attach to you in such a glamorous way, you will have no idea you were longing for such colour until its right there in front of you, or in this case on you.
A glorious Babydoll style with elements of luxury and the bedroom mixed in, Kit always manages to make me think of Vintage Nightwear when she does dresses like this, and I am sure with her that is exactly what motivates them.
They are beautifully trimmed with a lace edge and that flows through to the glitch pants also, so no matter what you are doing, or how you are standing that same delightful trim shows through. The colours are just WOW and the style is divine, add a bit of jewelry and you will knock cocktail hour on it’s bum. I added some beautiful Silver Bangles from Second Wave Apparel thinking that silver is definitely so complimentary to all the colours shown in the Caroline, the bangles come in various options, this three stacked one is just perfect.
The shoes are from ETD and are the Starley Pumps in silver, which is a simple pump style with a wonderfully shaped toe and heel. The hair is from Maitreya and Oh how I love these textures, this is the Yasmin hair that was released at Hair Fair and is now in the Maitreya Main Store, a fantastic straight style and again YUM YUM YUM, those textures.
Lion Skins as you have seen in the past few weeks, has such an abundance of bright and colourful make-ups, so whether you want a make up that is just as glam and colourful as the dresses, or a more subtle make -up you will have plenty to choose from there. I am wearing LionSkins-SUZANA- sunkissed 40,
LionSkins-SUZANA- sunkissed 46.
Not knowing you didn’t have something this wonderful until you saw it, is the case with Victoria. Also by CKS Designs, Kit might wallop me to find out that I am a huge fan of this set, not for the adorable sweaters, even though they are adorable , but the INCREDIBLE Sweater dress that is their background. Seriously I think the whole set is wonderful, but I cannot explain how much delight I got out of the base.
Ok Im going to try 😛 , thing is that everytime some new clothing texture belts come out, I love them all and then I get stumped as to what to wear them with. Always dependant on having your other items with the right layers options and so forth it can drive you a bit batty, and if there is too much going on in the print on the clothing, then its sometimes hard to find the right belt to compliment it.
Believe me I get there eventually, but Victoria makes that a no brainer, I LOVE THIS DRESS. Smart Casual or Dressy this dress has it all, the knit is divine and I DEMAND MORE COLOURS!– If I could make text flash I so would right now lol. Not just for texture belts either, this style would look heavenly with all those prim belts we collect as well, and then don’t know what to wear them with :P.
As I said, the beautiful cropped sweaters that are part of the Victoria set are just lovely as well , and as they seperately layered they aren’t limited to only wearing them with this base, you can wear them with pants, or anything, they are sheer too so you can work out the best way to show them off :p.
Another wonderful Knit is the beanie that is part of the Maitreya Jade Hair, texture colour change so you can choose which best suits your look,but how fab does it go with the Victoria, love love love. The boots that are also perfection for this kind of style, are the J’s Side Zipper boots, I am wearing the lace up version, there is also a belted foot version in the pack , so thats two styles for one fantastic price. Going with a paler skin in the LionSkins–SUZANA-pale 8, the make up is stunning and the pale skin is not so pale that it’s perfect for right now, with it being Spring here and your Autumn.
