This post would have been hours earlier, but we ended up in an hour long conversation in Fashion Emergency, that provided some interesting insight into how Marketplace works. CronoCloud should be following it up with a post that will provide information that may be helpful to stores that list there, so look out for that in days to come.
This months Collabor88 has the theme ‘Trending’ which has a metalic and emerald green base to it. I found it interesting when Pantone announced Emerald as the colour of 2013 in the last months of last year, and as someone that really does enjoy great greens, I was pleased. The metalic blend and emerald green of the palette for the event has created somewhat of a Wizard of Oz feeling, and the adorable TinMan glasses by Intrigue were the starting point for this post. They are so fun, and the small chips of emerald at the tops of the frames made them super special.
The dress by Ingenue has this beautiful mesh like metalic finish to it, especially in the silver. Combined with either a t-shirt under – as worn – for a casual day look, or without for more of a dressy early evening and into the night look, it really is special. The texture also worked perfectly with some bangles I bought last week from Maubray. There are many colour stacks to choose from, as well as the fat pack which I grabbed, the cool thing about them is that they are mod, and copy, so that you can unstack them and make your own combinations, or just wear one if you don’t like lots of bangles at once. That was actually the deciding factor for me, while I do like bangles, sometimes you just want a single to finish off a look.
Other great jewellery at Collabor88 are the peacock earrings, also by Intrigue, and the beautiful set by Cae that I am wearing the necklace of, as I will save the earrings for another time. The simplicity of the set makes it a go to option, and the leather strapping lets it be classy and casual. Another item at Collabor88 and one to add to your growing collection, is the Renee skin with special Trending themed make ups, there is an incredible Emerald Smokey eyeshadow, but as I was wearing the glasses at first, I went with the more subtle gold like look.
Lastly and perfectly timed, so much so that I actually asked Whimsy to let me blog it first lol. The Candice hair by Vanity Hair…it has two parts with a mesh tail, and is a really beautiful pony, that worked well with the glasses because there are no bangs to work around. I am wearing the hairbase from lelutka underneath.
