The figure of the Minoan woman… was very similar to the female shape that came into fashion during the late 1800s C.E….. In fact, so close were Minoan fashions to popular French fashions of the 1800s that one of the women in an ancient Minoan painting was nicknamed “La Parisienne” (the woman of Paris) by those who discovered her.
The dress Kiddo Oh made for the Fantasy Collective was inspiration for my blog entry title. Topless, the dress includes some beautiful traditional fashion motifs but with unexpected baring. Being this a family blog, I don’t show full on toplessness, but you can get the jist of it. I love how Kiddo has fashioned the trail of ruffles along the back, the amazing corset laced in back with a fashionable belt around the middle and a darling bolero, as if this is just another dress.
I accessorized with Kikunosuke Eel’s beautiful jewelry set for Shiny Shabby. With several pendants, this necklace of beads and elegantly fashioned earrings and bracelet, the set is worth having. I especially love the fashioning of the clasps and the settings.
A new set of skins has come out from sugarbrownie, the brand is doing a full-on push to be noticed. I rather like the skins but see in them the hallmarks of a new creator. The body needs a bit more development and perhaps a reworking of the look of the lips (which have a bit much white highlighting and lack the matteness I prefer). The features are well placed and nicely done, especially the nose and blush. And this creator includes appliers for everything. I decided to go a bit avant garde to match this dress with an updo from Boo Nakamura, which gives a beautiful not-quite-real asymmetry to this look. Ah, she is a Parisienne—elegant and sexy.
