to me, you just cannot have spring without a li’l bit of pretty pastel. it’s probably the fact that easter is spring, and easter usually means soft pink and baby blue and peach (and cadbury creme eggs!), but i always associate the beginning of spring with lighter colors.
apparently, so does bff vivi!
we decided to girly it up today with colors befitting of this time of year… in some light green, lavender && lemon chiffon yellow~
as often as i wear bold, bright hues.. and as often as i wear all black, i can’t deny how lovely the lighter side of the spectrum can be… and how positively *feminine* you can feel while wearing them. there’s something undeniably… *ladylike* about wearing something that’s softer in color && it’s a nice change of pace for me. i don’t do the whole… ruffly fabrics && dainty colors thing a lot, in my first life or in my second life, so it was good to know i could.. if i wanted to. ;p
while vivienne’s look all centers around the colors found in her *gorgeous* knee-high boots (from g field, at fashion for life).. mine was painstakingly (hah!) put together with pieces i picked up at collabor88. not only do i love the super steep discount found at collabor88, but the fact that usually there is a universal color palette used throughout all the items offered there. it makes picking up something from one designer.. then another… and another… to make a cohesive outfit so, so easy.
the top i’m wearing is from ufo, while the skirt is just one of many color choices set out by the sea hole. i like the contrast of the rougher fabric (adorned with girly li’l flowers!) of the skirt when paired with the delicate texturing on the top.. and how easily the shades work together, especially when accessorized with the necklace i picked up from collabor88 by yummy.
vivi’s look is just as pretty, if not moreso, with that stunning shade of pastel yellow. the jacket, from ricielli is a different sort of feminine — a polished, tailored sort — and it matches the floral folded-over top on her boots *perfectly*. her look also dresses up a simple, plain (and free!) tank top && her favorite pair jeans rather nicely.
so! girly-girl looks for today! it may not be my everyday, but there definitely is a softer side to vixxie. ;D i enjoy challenging myself to create looks that are outside my own personal realm of normal && it’s nice when it actually *works*. i can totally pull off a ~lady~ just as well as the next girl, riiiiiiiiight? …. right?!
