winter wonderland

my “inspiration” for a look usually comes from one or two pieces that i then dress around. an accessory, a pair of killer shoes, a new top.. something new in my inventory that i’ve not yet showcased on my blog, then i simply dress to match it. but i’ve *never* dressed to fit a location in world… until now.

the north pole display @ atrum complexo is stunning && i’m so glad that the beautiful gogo showed it off on her blog.. or else i never would’ve known it existed. so thanks for that! ❤❤

it’s wonderfully wintery, with lots of snow-frosted trees && a square with a few shops and a big christmas tree right in the center. i popped in to check it out && was immediately inspired to create a look fitting for taking a sleigh ride and browsing li’l stores all while the snow is falling.

heels.. probably not the most practical shoes for trudgin’ around in the snow, but cut me some slack, mmkay? ;p

it all starts with the mesh barn jacket i picked up from jane. mesh is slowly becoming more && more prevalent on the grid these days, something that makes my insides giddy, but i gotta say… for as nicely as the pieces in mesh that i own from jane are, and for the detail && work that must go into them.. they are incredibly well-priced. i’ve got a few mesh pieces floatin’ around in my inventory that were probably more expensive than the should’ve been. but all the mesh goodies from jane? *150L*. yeah, it’s ridonkulous.

even more ridonkulous is the tank top i’m wearing underneath the brown jacket. it’s also from jane && it was *free*. free! what makes it better still is the fact that you get about a billion colors — enough to honestly never need another tank in your slife (haha, yeah right.. i buy tank tops like they’re goin’ outta style, but y’know..) — aaaaaaaaaaand there’s another pack of rompers in a similar amount of colors for free as well. all the designers are coming out with some great cold weather pieces with sweaters && cardigans && coats.. if you need some pieces perfect for layering, these freebie packs are amazing for that!

and for serious, how cute are these leg warmers? they’re from g field, as are the heels i’m wearing underneath them, and i *adore* the big poofeh pompoms hanging off the sides. they’re specially made to fit over a few select pairs of g field’s shoes, but they come in several sizes to try and accommodate all the different shapes out there.. and maybe with a little adjusting, you could fit these over other brand’s shoes. i’m not fully sure as i’ve not tried yet, but some of my favorite heels are from g field.. so i had no troubles at all with getting these warmers to fit juuust right.

plus, i love the way leg warmers + heels looks. and with as many color choices as these come in, i can *totally* see myself accessorizing throughout winter with these leg warmers.

so go throw on your own barn jacket && leg warmers and roam around the north pole. it’s gorgeous && full of lots of cute things to do and see. i was there all by myself, so i didn’t hop on the sleigh-for-two and just sight see after i was done snappin’ photos, but it would be an adorable place to go visit with a loved one. or a bff, ’cause i am eventually gonna drag vivi there && bombard her with all things christmas. teehee~
