Pretty In Pink

Donna Flora was one of the first stores I found when I began my SL journey. I counted my meagre pennies and watched her freebies religiously. Now I am a big wig fashionista (lol meaning I figured out how to buy lindens) I shop there regularly, still appreciating every freebie given. Her clothes have a distinct flair to them and she seems to be willing to always experiment with textures and her colors are often delicate and well blended. It takes you back to a time when glamour was a way of life and dressing in one of her gowns makes you want to find the nearest jazz club and dance the night away. Her lines are often simple and very elegant.

Ballet pink is one of my favourite colours and she does it beautifully here. I usually don’t match outfits with the same designer jewellery but her jewellery is equally terrific. I like her things because she pays attention to size and scale. If I am going to wear something I would like it to be at least seen – especially the earrings.

Although her style is a throw-back to the old holly-wood glamour I paired the look with a much more modern and simple hair style from VintageWear Hair which works well with the outfit.

Shoes are from Battle Fairy and I could not find them when I went back to check so I am not sure they are even available. Retro Hobo and Slips Ons Peaches are similar and include a matching handbag – they sell for $300L. Battle Fairy(Grace Selene) does fantastic shoes and when I went back to check and took Whinter, we both overspent our budget.
