When Less is NOT More
Okay, so my grandmother always told me; "Less is More", and generally, I agree... except for today!!! :D
Yup, this outfit I've put together is totally over the top, totally full on and totally lush :)
So what inspired me to break my granny's simple rule you might ask? This hair! OMG LOVE IT! Kalli from Discord Designs sent it to me the other day and when I put it on I was just WOW! awesome! You may know Kalli's work with braids, and she does do brilliant ones... I've worked on some jewellery to go with those braids... so I can tell you as one that has stared for hours on end intensely zoomed in on them, they really are THAT good, not many things can stand up to that sort of scrutiny. But I think that this hair shows you that she's not just about braids. The way she has variegated the colours is so well done, and the style itself is lovely.
The outfit is from Schadenfreude, Allegory Malaprop does great work. It's one of those shops that you can just click & buy everything there without going "hmm, hope the seems match", her stuff is always quality. The boots are from Bettie's another store that I love.
The rest of the outfit was put together through a total adventure of TP'ing to stores that I had never been before... I had fun!
I went to Mandala for the first time ever, I HIGHLY recommend that place! I make jewelly (as I'm sure you know) so I tend to be a bit of a jewellery snob, this place left me going WOW! the attention to detail and the originality of the pieces there is just amazing! The choker & necklace where a real find, some great stuff to be found at PERTURB/ation The waist scarf or stole as it is advertised in store is from =IZUMIYA=
And lastly, the skin, it's from Trap, and just rocks, well you can see that for yourself... another store that I will be going back and back and back to!
Until next time when I fill you in on my fun gambols about SL.
