Sometimes, you buy something on impulse, not knowing if you will ever wear it, just wanting it. That is how I came upon this adorable Jess Hat/Hair style from Draconic Kiss. It was back at the Hair Fair, I would say I averaged about 80% impulse buying while there, and I sometimes come to regret it. But not this one. How great is a hat that is scripted not only to change textures and colours, but also shape? I think very!
I have loved this sweater from Nylon Outfitters for ages, and have had it so long I can't remember when I got it, but I had never thought of tinting it before. I pulled on the Grey version of the Knitted Sweater and tinted it up lavender to match with the hat. The loose knit has holes that lend it to wearing a basic tank underneath, so I used one from *Thimbles*, part of a set because it happened to be nicely finished with an undies layer bottom edge that looked great with the low rise ::TULI:: Jenny Jeans. I love the character of these jeans, the worn out shredded holes and the hand-prints, very funky. I have to mention these *REDGRAVE* Girls Biker Boots, because I simply can't get enough of them. They were sent to me as review copies, and I would otherwise be lusting over them endlessly. I just think they look brilliantly worn in and real, and they are precisely the kind of urban grunge gear that makes my heart go pitta-pat. The bag is a treasured find from Nerdy Birdy, no longer available as far as I can tell, but I couldn't resist the Bunny Mechanics Bag with the hat, so i went for it. The Choker and Bracelet are separates from (Shiny Things) one of my favorite places for accessories, the Niko pieces are wonderfully detailed.
Skin is Crys from PXL, a darker one then I am used to, one of the reviews that Hart Larsson sent me months ago, but I think it is lovely, and like the idea of dappling in a sun kissed tone every now and again. Eyes are from Miriel, and Lashes are from Cake. Again, the fabulous Jess Hair/Hat combo from Draconic Kiss was my inspiration, so I decided to show you the other two options for the hat shape. Be it a jive Bunny, Kitty, or Mouse... remember to have a little fun with your look, impulsive ain't all bad!
