There's Power In The Flower.
You know you're wardrobe is in a bad way when you can't find the new coat you recently purchased. I've been searching high and low for my new acquisition from Peqe, a stunning floral coat called 'Pacific' I just assumed it hadn't arrived when there it was...voila.
Styling this look was lots of fun if not a bit of a challenge. I wanted to create a romantic and feminine look with an old world feel. Coats/jacket's can be tricky little things but Peqe has nailed it with a great drape to the coat that gives the impression of flowing material and the puffy prim sleeves match really well with the pattern of the jacket layer.
I racked my brain thinking about what I would wear under the coat and recalled this outfit I purchased so long ago from Redgrave called Nude Body Suit. God knows if it's still available but I loved it for the delicate diamante detail at the hem of the shorts, shirt bottom and neckline.
I've been holding onto this Christiana headpiece from Donna Flora for a while now eager to wear it with something that would do it justice. I love this hat to smithereens. I raided the jewel box big time for this look and draped myself in the Chicago Diamante selection (earrings, necklace and bracelet) from Eclectica.Jewelery. If you want quality, go Eclectica shopping. I also brought out my big gun Trinity Ring from Modern Gypsy that is akin to a bling-ified knuckle duster. Yay for you Micah.
To finish off my floral Lolita look, I snapped up this hat box called 'Faded Fragrance' from Le Poppycock. Loving that shine and luster on the bag...Amazing work Julliette Bade. Your shop is fabulous.
