Trying my hand at a little mixology, ala the Glamourai. That's when you not only pile pattern onto pattern but also layer texture on texture.
Polka dots, diagonal stripes, large-seed-beads, feathers as ear-rings, gingham grosgrain, metal and ribbon necklace and more polkas make for a heady cocktail. (Hope it comes dirty with a couple of olives.
I think I must be a little bit punchy from all the textures and patterns because I think I'm doing the cabbage patch.
You probably can't see it, but the feathers in the ear-rings are black with white dots, echoing the polka dots in the head band and pants. I feel a bit like a gypsy in all these accessories. But I liked the outfit (it was super comfy) so much I wore it again the next day, only without all the hoo-haws, simplifying the look with just the floral pin and the dotted hairband. Put on pointy ballerina flats and set the course for coolio on a hot summer's day.
Which was nice as it was an impromptu trunk show at the Citizen's HQ, where and handful of super lovely ladies showed up and tried on a bunch of summer frocks. I wanted to take pictures of the festivities, but there was always a lady or two in a state of undress, I didn't dare. I did get to snap some photos of a beautiful girl who totally epitomizes the look and style of Citizen Rosebud. I'm going to post her pictures tomorrow. We all had such a great time, and I can't wait to do it again. Thanks to all the beautiful friends who stopped by and showed their support. You really made my week!
