For Jonquil, I found this classic peplum dess from Ricielli. For those of you that may not have known, the peplum originated in ancient Greece as a loosely worn tunic and while it has changed form slightly, it’s style has endured through the centuries. Here are two great blogs, Couture Carrie and gchicnotes that have lots of great examples of peplums and some interesting history behind them. Ricielli’s mesh version features a sweetheart neckline and is very curve hugging 🙂 I paired it with black accessories, such as Ricielli’s Cowhide Black Leather tote bag (also mesh). Mood’s Dakhla Choker set and N-Core’s Emporium heels complete the outfit. My hair is D!iva’s, Sayaka2.
Happy Shopping ❤
For this week’s 52 Weeks of Color Challenge, I found an adorable, vintage looking satin dress at Fishy Strawberry. It is the perfect shade of coral! I matched it with a vintage gold chain necklace from [glow]. Since it is winter in Ohio (my rl home), my coral dress felt a little summery. So, I headed to GField to look for a sweater. I was not disappointed! I found this adorable, ruffled bolero in ivory. I also found the perfect pair of coral heels and coordinating leg warmers! What a perfect shopping day! My winter skybox is from Magic Nook, my setee is from Awesome Blossom (closing on Jan 15th so having a 50% off sale right now!!), my hair is from D!va, my eyes are Bubblegum from Aphotic Gloom. My skin is Polly from Al Vulo, which I blogged here. My lipstain is from CheLLe.
