The Fashion Relay Challenge has been going on for quite a while now — I joined in pretty late and I’m really thankful to still be given the chance to join!
I was lucky enough to take over this baton from Dahlindah Destiny over at Free*Style. I loved her post — filled with gorgeous accessories and such an eclectic mix of fashion! I contemplated the belt, the necklace or perhaps the tights but I ended up thinking… I’ve never been to *MINX* before, maybe I should give those shoes a try. How lucky I was to strike a jackpot! I found Dahlindah’s shoes in white which was the color I hoped to emphasize my outfit on. I decided those were the piece I’ll take from her — MINX’s Sugar Baby Heels in white ^^
Big huge thank you to Dahlindah who gave me a whole bunch of stuff to pick from ^^
*MINX* carries a whole bunch of heels and pumps that are super tall and very -fierce- I think. I think the shape of these heels are so interesting and have so much attitude — white tones it down good enough for the look I went for. This look I hope evokes a feeling of innocence romance, which are how I feel about the pieces I have been finding so far.
SUGARCUBE is Sayuri Cremorne’s genius store; the prices are really reasonable and the dresses are just too amazing for words! I love how romantic they all feel — girly and so filled with fun! This piece is called the “HASU – one shoulder dress (in blanche)” I love how it looks like a little flower with the bubble dress having tons of layers. Sayuri’s store has recently become my favorite shops to get dresses, and from my conversations with her, she’s been a sweetheart!
I wanted to emphasize the bubble shape of the dress, simply because it’s one of my favorite shapes in real life. I then remembered my Paper Couture vest that I haven’t worn before, and really now, what evokes romance more than Paper Couture?? I knew that the rules were that every item needed to be able to be purchased as a separate, this vest came with a dress ^^” Apologies for that, it was too late by the time I remembered *dies of shame*
The hair is cumu’s newest release! Cumu is a hair store I found a while back from Abra‘s blog; I love cumu’s feminine styles and when I tped over to the old LM, I realized the store was no longer there. I found that they have moved to a new LM together with UnTone Quilt where all her previous hair styles and a few brand new ones are held!
Accessories wise, I hope I picked a huge variety for the next baton runner to pick from. I love unJour so much, from the inspiring sim to the pieces that just evoke such a sense of fantasy to them. This headpiece belongs to them, and really does show you the gorgeousness of unJour’s designs. [Twee] is a store Chance introduced to me saying you gots to see this store! And boy was I glad I dropped by, not only do they have adorable tights and dresses — they had a wall of cute glasses which I have been recently obsessed with. Do give them a look as that is where I got these adorable pair from!
The gloves came together with lace stockings and both black and white versions for simply 100L — a steal from one of the most interesting stores ever; The Black Canary. I found ENCEMBLE‘s new ribbon socks fitting for the whole look. I then added Maitreya‘s sculpted anklets which I think gave a nice finishing touch for the outfit.
Some sims we walk around in thinking you’d never get anything from there just cause it’s so crazy! Like The Laughing Academy which sells all sorts of renaissance fashion. Dressing periodic is not my style at all, but the exciting accessories I found in there were just amazing! The shoes in particular blew my mind away — they were so well done and intricate. I picked out a floral white lace parasol from them that completed my look ^^
Apologies for talking so much… but now I hand over my baton in full speed to Tomoyo Breitman over at Frenzy Shoppers. Apparently she will also be last on the list so I can’t wait to see how she ends this relay in a blast like I know she will!
