I don’t tend to experiment with colour nearly as much as I should. In a virtual, technicolour world I should surely be free to wear an absolute myriad of tones and shades, but alas, the mindset of the real world tends to stay put and I wear any colour, as long as it’s black. Not today. Today I dared to be different and went all out for pattern and colour. I grabbed myself an APHORISM ‘Jas’ skirt from SHINY SHABBY, paired it with a slogan tee by VINYL for MESH BODY ADDICTS BI-MONTHLY and went all out, looking for trouble. The ‘Jas’ skirt is simple, short and sassy and features zips on the hips. I like simple shapes for essential basics; this works perfectly and dressed up or down looks super effective. Add leggings and boots for a more urban grunge feel, add elegant heels and a long top for a more dressy style. I added the GLAMISTRY ‘Edelweiss’ heels, which aren’t quite a shoe, but definitely not quite a boot. A shoot perhaps? Well, who cares, because they look amazing. As per usual Glamistry doesn’t skimp on options or details, and these can be styled a myriad of ways. I opted to add a shiny grey texture with contrast blue laces and tassel embellishment; these look so darn good they’re practically edible, don’t you think? I could fixate on these a wee bit too much, given half the chance. Look at the stitching and the shiny patina to the leather. I just don’t understand how GLAMISTRY do it, it’s witchcraft for sure, but I’m so very glad that they do! To finish my look I added hair from RUNAWAY, a hair brand that is fast becoming an obsession of mine. I also added a simple cat necklace courtesy of AMALA along with a more complex necklace by RANDOM MATTER, of a pair of hands holding a crystal ball. It’s an absolute delight, very unusual and a must-have if you’re at all magically inclined. Last but not least I’m sporting another fabulous AMARA BEAUTY release (more on that later!) along with some freebie pink lip gloss that I picked up at the latest TRES CHIC event. So many events, so little time but it’s so much fun shopping around when you can create looks like this one.
