Back To The Past...
A felt like I have been neglecting my first fashion love, Retro. So it was time to dive into my inventory and pull out a look I simply adore. When it comes to Retro hair, no one does it better then Betty Doyle of Ingenue. Her textures are lovely, the colours true to the era that her styles are from, and they styles are so classic and lovely. This wig, the Senorita, is simply the best, I love that is had a snood (a term my grandmother made me familiar with), that net over the roll of hair in the back. But this style actually comes with 2 versions, with Snood and Snood-less (is that a word?). The hot Cha Cha Peek-a-boo Dress is also from Ingenue, one hot little number, and Betty really knows how to work the system skirt, with shading and folds, and they blend almost seamlessly with the top of the dress.
For some retro accessories, I choose a fabulous bag from /artilleri/, the Bamboo Cherry Bag is so classic, comes in a flower and non-flower version, and thought I believe it may have been retired recently, I think Antie still sells a similar purse. These bangles are also no longer available as far as I know, sorry, the are by Woo's and were a gift when Calla celebrated their Anniversary months ago. The Necklace and Earrings are NEW and very much available at EARTHTONES. This is the new Fire version of the Grazia Set, which used to be more natural pearl colours, and now comes in brilliant brights in silver or gold settings. The shoes are a perfect fit, Maitreya's Enchants in Antie's Black, with sexy red soles. Retro, Fun, Fabulous!
A trip to Celestial Studios for other basics, the Skin is from the Charmed Line, in the lovely Red-Diva make-up. Eyes are from (CS) Optics, the Natural Series in a lovely Hazel, and the Lashes are Celestial's Prim Lashes in Classic Style (No. 10). I have always said my favorite thing about Phil's Place is that we can effortlessly travel between Era's and Styles, and what fun would it be if we didn't take advantage of that.
