I am going to break two rules in this blog that I normally keep. First, I am going to show the same clothing designer twice in one week. Second, I am going to show content that is not easily obtained because it is “exclusive.” Nevertheless, the content is fully representative of the makers’ quality work–and I look really cute!
Again I am featuring a piece by Ivey Deschanel, this one made for the Stumblebum sale. It is one of a series of Nutcracker dresses she made, but this exclusive one is the only one she offered in a blue and purple paisley combo. The remainder appear to be solid colors, which is a shame, because this texture is fun and imaginative and perfect for the whimsical silhouette of this puff sleeved, girly coat with its light blue tights.
I am wearing one of Tuli’s exclusive skins given to group members. I have shown this one before, but I thought its freshness was the perfect accompaniment to the fanciful patterns of Ivey’s dress.
The dress matches this lovely gift a friend sent over—a hat from a series done by Saraid Dalglish. (And really, this blog is all about the hat.) Saraid’s playful hats cover a variety of themes including a Queen of Hearts hat and a beautiful Monarch butterfly hat that I also own. The hats are transferable, so it’s a very fun way to give a friend who has everything a piece of wearable art.
Note the details on the bluebirds, the nests and feathers and the pretty blue eggs.
The boots are NOT exclusive but might seem so as they are so unique. They are from the beautiful set that Enktan Gully and LeeZu Baxter recently collaborated on. This outfit needed a faux old-fashioned boot—stilettos would ruin the look and flats would be too modern. The new Courtisane boots up the whimsy of the entire ensemble, especially with their fantastic textures and pretty puffy flower.
