Guest Appearance

1 Guest Appearance sm

It kind of feels like I am making a guest appearance on my own blog. I know I haven’t been very active lately; my real life job is sapping my energy and time. I am going to try to play catch up in the next few days; this photo (and the one for my next post) I actually took last weekend. But I just got around to working on them last night. What a way to spend a Friday evening!

The pretty nightie and shoes are gacha prizes from Salt & Pepper for The Gacha Garden. So delicate and feminine! The shrug is also by S&P for the same event, but it is the Seed of Inspiration prize. For those of you not familiar with this event, the vendor rewards you with a special gift after playing the machine 20 times. That is your seed of inspiration to keep playing! The shrug works with all of the pieces; the common babydoll and the rare dresses. You could even pair it with any other sleeveless top you have, making it a very versatile piece.

I’m keeping the commentary short; head to the credits for all of the details – they’re what are really important!

Tuff Chick

1 Tuff Girl sm

Even tuff girls love their shoes.

I’m not a biker chick, but while prepping for a client shoot, I decided to hop on the bike and see how it felt. It felt…strange. Uncomfortable, even. But with the right outfit and hair, I can pretend I’m in Rome for a day. Hey, Audrey Hepburn did it in Roman Holiday, so why can’t I? OK, so that was a scooter, but let’s not pick nits 😉

Honestly, this photo is all about the shoes. Fringe always makes me feel like a bit of a bad girl, albeit in a princess-y way. There is just something about the feel of the fabric swishing against your ankles to make even a debutante turn into a tuff chick. These babies are from Apple May Designs and can be found at the current round of Shiny Shabby. It is the first anniversary of this amazing event and there are some awesome gifts from these incredible designers. I’m not showing the gift from Apple May, but trust me, it’s worth putting on your shoes and heading over!
