If you are a watcher of stores like I am, you will definitely be impressed by the works of Ivey Deschanel of Sn@tch. I like many I am sure, chuckle each time a notice arrives with some kind of way to use Sn@tch in a well known quote, title or musical reference. But it is always with awe that I see how much she manages to create in a week or two. The use of textures, the flawless execution of her detailing, and also her ability to take mesh that may be used by others and put her own unique stamp on it, is very cool. One day a friend and I marvelled at how she turned a mesh sweater into a cardigan (closed) with just texture detailing, it was beautiful work.
I went over recently and hit up her appliers section, it is really well layed out her store…I bought mostly everything in sight that worked with the Slink body, and with the help of the gorgeous cardigan from Fishy Strawberry, I had a look that is just stylish and comfortable, and so easy to put together. You of course get many colours with your Sn@tch items, so combinations can be a great lot of fun, and the cardigans gem buttons are texture change also.
I have on my Jazz boots from Maitreya, that with a few alpha options and sizing correctly were able to fit over my body well, and I just adore these boots, the wedge heel, the open back…Maitreya has always since day one delighted us in all footwear, but for me it has always been their boots that just knock me over.
Wasabi pills has created this lovely hair I have on today. I like the simplicity of the style, it is very girly, and very all day every day hair…which for many is something they can really embrace. I do wish I personally had more options in colours for Wasabi Pills hair, as a lot of the textures don’t often work for me, but I do always fine something in the mix that I can play around with. I am thinking of going back to lighter browns, blondes again this year, the black was always a safety zone habit when stores didn’t have textures I was fond of, and then it just sticks for a while and I forget I like more variety – it is why naturals packs are awesome.
