Punch Drunk Love
This last week, we heard news that Iris Seale of *Punch Drunk* was releasing a new line inspired by the paintings of Linda Bergkvist. I was anxious to see what Iris came up with, as I adore designers who are inspired by something other then what the runways are parading about. I was not disappointed. Iris sent me a folder with the collection, and I really loved the colours and the details of the dresses, they were really not what I expected from the mind that brought me my favorite Glam Rock Dress. I thinks that is what I like best about the collection, the diversity of it. My favorite, is this Blackbird GoGo Dress, that it somewhere between showgirl, 80s Prom, and Rock Star. The net bustle and feather like skirt are really spectacular, and I love the net ruffle on the chest. Check out *Punch Drunk*'s Enayla Collection, it is really worth a look.
I decided to pair this dress with some equally fantastic boots, these Bax Coen Ankle Boots in Black Suede can be customized dozens of ways, but I decided to pick out the purple of the dress and I think they look spectacular with the lace ruffle an exact match. I also pulled on a pair of Celestial Studios LuLu Over-The-Knee Fishnets in Black, to reflect the netting on the skirt, and I think they give the look a whole lot of sass. I went with delicate Candy Earrings and a Candy Ring from Alexander Vargas, pieces I picked up at one of the recent clothing fairs. I always admire tiny prim work, and these are sweet little pieces that could work with so many looks. A delicate necklace from -EARTHTONES- with this great Triple Later Necklace that is scripted so you can customize the crystal colours. I did opt for one chunky bracelet, and I love this *Untone* Black Heart Bracelet.
Is it becoming obvious that I am in love with *booN hair? This TOM14 Hair is another great style, really punky and sexy at the same time. I love the sections on top the resemble wings, all gelled and sprayed to stick out. Skin is *QS* Milk Skin in Disco003, another great wide-eyed look. Lashes are [Detour]'s Love Lashes and Glassy Mustard Green Eyes are from Freak Fantasia.
