Chain Headpiece: DIY (Tutorial here)
Top: Vintage, from my Mom's closet
Maxi Skirt: c/o of Love of Eos
This top, which I took from my Mom's closet, has been sitting in my closet for a long time because I had trouble pairing it with the right item... but recently, Love of Eos sent me this nude maxi skirt and it seemed like these two items would go perfect with eachother :) Love of Eos is an online clothing store based in Australia and they've got some really nice choices for bottoms in particular! Sophie, the owner of Love of Eos, also sent me a pair of distressed black denim shorts, and I gave up on wearing denim shorts because I have the hardest time finding a pair that flatters my non-existent behind and also isn't made of fabric that is too thick and uncomfortable, and these shorts were comfortably thin and didn't make me look like a was wearing a paper bag as a pair of shorts :) And there are these amazing python print jeans which I am holding off on wearing until my Lita Spikes arrive in the mail!!
A quick update on the progress of my fashion show collection is I have managed to finish the 2nd gown, and the burlap shorts for the third outfit. So now I'm moving onto the corset top and kimono-styled cardigan to finish the third outfit! I'm also pretty excited to go on our Fashion Class' annual trip to LA next week where I'll get to go to the FIDM Debut Show too (and miss 2 days of school :D) but I'll probably not be as happy about that when I am actually faced with the make-up work... but what I'm most anticipating is our visit to the LA Mood Fabrics; maybe I will be lucky and find some pretty (hopefully not crazy expensive) trims and appliques I can use? Nonetheless, I am glad to get a mini-vacation in the middle of this hectic month of March!
