Artistic Expression in Avant Garde
I was casting for a show the other day that asked us to present "Artistic Expression in Avant Garde or Haute Couture" as the styling category. I must confess those are two of my favorite styling categories so I looked forward to seeing what I could come up with. I do like to use the designer that will be featured in the show as a diving off point and in this case it was Solidea Follies. She is getting ready to bring out a whole new line and recently had a fantastic sale to make room for all the wonderful new things. I headed to her store to find something I could begin to build a look around and I chose the whimsical and colorful Optical Dot Hat in shades of Orange, brown and a beautiful aqua. Shaped like a fish I knew instantly I could use it with the lovely Aquaria Gown in Orange and Pink I had picked up from this round of Enchantment. If you haven't been yet make the time to stop by - Enchantment . it's on from Aug14th to Sept 5th. The gown comes with a shawl attachment that mimics tube coral, which was perfect for the playful sea-like look I was going for, but you could also wear the gown without the shawl and due to it's ombre'd color effect it's quite gorgeous without embellishment. I just might head back to Enchantment to pick up another color. The last item I added was a beautiful jewelry set reminiscent of underwater bubbles in shades of pinks, oranges, pearls, greens etc. From Bliensen + MaiTai, this set is called Suzie Q in the glow shade. I was pretty pleased with the whole look so I thought I would share it with you. :)
