Fae Fashion #1

I brought up the idea to my friend Emy of showing my version of fae fashion on a continuing basis! She was excited. I believe it is a nitch no one is filling, so here goes.

Unless designers start dropping stuff on me, none of it is review copies. I'm going to show you outfits I wear. I probably won't indicate which are designer gifts, unless I just picked it up and it's a limited time offer. However I will do my best to let you know what is available and what is not out for sale. Just because it's no longer in the designers shop, doesn't mean you don't have it or something similar in your wardrobe. When I check to see if it is still offered, if I think it might be a little difficult to locate I'll add a note.

I do have favorite shops, however most of the time I am a blog shopper = if something on a blog catches my attention, I'll check it out. I look around the shop while I'm there and see if I'm interested in other items also. I shop all over the grid not only in role play/fantasy shops, sometimes finding one or two offerings in modern shop that fit in with what I like to wear as a fae. This outfit is a case in point for shopping outside the RP shops.

For a larger view, click on the images.
The scalloped hem of the skirt is diagonally cut with with layers of what could be a soft cotton batiste in lavender. A pink cloth flower accents the waist. The embroidered and appliqued lace lays over both the fabric and your skin.

Fae do not get cold so there is no need for capes and boots, but I have noticed that I tend towards cooler pieces of clothing during the warm months and usually cover up more during the cold months. This was the first outfit I purchased when spring came this year.
Green and purple are good foils for each other when neither are overly strong. I really like the little touch of lavender in the green wings, it picks up the lavender of the skirt and top.I honestly think the depth of shading in this set of wings makes it the most dimensional Violaine Villota has created.
The whimsical trumpet vine necklace and earrings seemed the perfect light-hearted touch.

I really appreciate it when bloggers provide LMs. I do apologize, I started to and realized the extra effort it takes, would mean I would not do a Fae Fashion post as often as I hope to since I am not a dedicated blogger.

I think we need a fantasy/medieval fashion blog. I have played several characters now: fae, dryad, ent(maiden) & elf(ugh!) Maybe we should start one and invite a few others who seem to have a knack for distinctive "race fashion" to guest. I know I promised a blog on one of my fashions, but you chose the toadstool outfit, and it is not my best effort. How about a dryad? or a fae-chicken? or even and entmaiden?

giggles fae-chicken? Any one you would like to do would be fine Emy.

I'm not disciplined enough for everything I have going now, but that is a great idea. And maybe find a kid AV to add to the mix.
