Red, White and Blue…it totally wasn’t planned, but it did turn out that way. It’s been a great week for hair for me so far, and it’s only mid week, but what week isn’t great for hair. Have you ever seen an item on a shelf and thought oooo ahhh, and bought it , and gotten it home to put on, and next thing you know you got more than you expected?
That’s exactly what happened with the first dress when shopping at Emery a while ago, I had no idea it had that incredible cut out detailing on the back, the front was fun enough for me to want it, back and forth semi diagonal lines in red, across a stark white background…with adorable knee high red with white trim accented socks.
The back is definitely va va voom worthy. Wanting a vintagey look , I teamed it up with the sunglasses from a already over 50L friday purchase, a great bargain for sure, but even without the fab price the style and fit of them is just great. Then adding the flavour of the day with the New Prestige boots by BAX , these things just keep on giving. The boots have so many different options from a drop down dialogue menu, you can see most of them in the pics as I go.
I really love the backcombed look of this stunning hair from Mirone. I kept the boots as simple as they come straight out of the box for this shot.
Next up, and again from Emery we have the skirt that makes me think of bacon, and because of that I love it even more. Not only is it a great simple tube skirt, but I love how it dips on one side, showing a tad more hip. I would love more of this style in different prints and colours. The top I grabbed off Xstreet, the XD store does crazy reductions on their items on Xstreet, less than half in many cases.
Another great hairstyle from Mirone – thanks to Ashia Tomsen for tping me to the Glance 1st anniversary where I was able to buy these great styles. This time I made use of the drop down on the Prestige Boots, changing the seams and edging, as well as the zipper and heels to red, popping up the over the knee extensions I was ready for action.
I was on a roll with these boots, so nosedived into my Tuli folder of clothing. This is where we went from red and white, to blue and white. I have always been a top stretcher, I had this insane reaction to things touching my neck as a kid, so all the collars of shirts would be stretched to near ripping point – and wow did I get into trouble for that. So styles such as this top make me happy, its elegant in an older Jackie O kind of era, but has that 80’s repeat thing going on, which of courseÂ every 20 years is repeated so it’s definitely the theme now.
I really like the detailing done to the sleeves of this shirt, the rolled and fastened look is a nice addition, worn with some really nice shiny blue leggings that fit just right into the boots. It needed a little something though, so back to Xstreet because I was feeling lazy, and I knew it was there, I finally got the white version of the Widebelt from CoCo.
A few weeks ago Sofia and I went to Dango Jewells – if you haven’t checked out her fashion blog posts you are missing out – store Fabulous, I had been in a few times, and had really liked a particular set of bangles, this time I actually grabbed them. They come in two variations, in gold and white gold.
The other night Arabella, Whimsy and I went by the Clawtooth by Clawtooth sale, it was fun shopping together and each finding different things to love in each style, I already had a few Clawtooth creations, but was appreciative that I got to pick up some bargains. The goodbye horses hair I had loved since Hair Fair, but for some reason kept grabbing other styles whenever I went, I fixed that this time though.
Another style by Clawtooth and one of my favs as it actually has fun attachments with it, I am not wearing in this pic. The lovely full locks look great with the casual handkerchief dress by Tuli, she does such great work with prints and this dress is no exception. Another thing she does really well is denim, especially in jeans, these torn capri jeans are fab, and the perfect segway into my favourite of the Prestige boots features.
Denim cuffs anyone, yes I kid you not, the boots come with three different denim uppers, which of course will make them jean cuff lowers. This is a genius idea, and as denim when rolled up is very generic it works perfectly. So now due to this wonderful option, I get to look as though I am wearing pants cuffs, with boots uppers, and its still only one attachment point. The shirt was actually a VIP gift from Tuli and is a lovely loose sleeved look.
This hair is again Mirone, and was also a gift, for the Glance anniversary, so make sure you head over while that is still on. I am really happy that the new Sloth skins by Red Queen had such beautiful blue make ups, that it worked so well with these looks. I also enjoyed getting to show you a little bit more of the bodies of these skins, as I think the stomach is delish, so make sure you grab a demo of those soon to try for yourself.
Also be sure to check out the demos of the BAX Prestige boots, seriously the options on these are fantastic, and the colours are perfect for the upcoming cooler weather – it’s freezing here already.
