Dearly Deers,

Nhebus, designer for Cuqui, has made some nice fitting tops that go perfect as is, but also can be worn with anything over it for those colder days. With several colors to choose from there is one for your wardrobe as well.
The hairdo Vanity is by Nita Bracken’s, Tameless Designs. It is available exclusively at the Vintage and Cool fair, which runs till September 4th. So you might want to check that in time. Added on it is a flower hair piece by Lode. It is from a former gacha, but you can still get your luck up at the main-store.

L’amour et lumière,
Emlies

Dearly Deers,

Today’s inspiration comes from a Dutch band.
Their press release officially says the following:

“It used to be pretty normal: rock ‘n’ roll, women, drinking beer,the smell of gasoline, sweat and cigarettes all coming together at one place creating an atmosphere that is hardly ever seen or even allowed anymore.
All the more reason for us to put together LIPTEASE and play today’s music in that groovin’ rockabilly/swing style to re-­‐live those days to the full!! Despite of the busy lives of our band members we once again put together an amazing show that will rock your socks off! All in all:
An extraordinary entertaining show with putting you right back in the roaring times of the 50’s and 60’s. So call-­‐in sick, save your days off, feed your pets, call your nanny, shine your creepers, fill up your hot-­‐rod, grease your hair, pick out your finest dress, because this is: LIPTEASE with their glamorous, wild, unstoppable Rockabilly Roll Show….

The reason I am sharing all this is just because I am one, be it new, fan of this band.
A friend of mine saw them perform live at a rockabilly festival and was impressed so when they were to come near town, I had no doubt to go and visit them and see what they are about when they play live. I too found it amazing, you can basically sing along any song they play, their performance is rather slick and for their outfits… well an inspiration for this post!

DRBC’s designer, Delirium Sol, is right at home when it comes to a retro looking wardrobe. One of those designs that belong in anyone’s rockabilly’s closet is definitely Debbie Diesel, a tight short body hugging dress in black. It closes with buttons up front and has cute short back-slapped sleeves.
The fascinator Charlotte is by the hand of Persefona, a talented designer with cute headdresses and some jewelry in her line Persefona. Charlotte comes in several colors with a hud to change the colors of the pearls and veil.

Next to that, you cannot go without some glitter high heel peeptoes!
Thanks to her Flickr picture I came across these, by Silvermoon Namiboo.
It is part of a set for ONLY 35L$ at the marketplace for a limited time.
I’d say go for it!

L’amour et lumière,
Emlies!

Dearly Deers,

Have you seen Titanic more times than is likely healthy? Can you recite every word out of Jack Dawson’s mouth verbatim? Is the original poster still hanging in your childhood bedroom at your parents’ house? Inspired by this movie is today’s post.
The original costumes in Titanic were designed by Deborah Lynn Scott, a huge project and one of the best known, must be “The Jump Dress”.
Here is an article about that dress together with nice close ups done.

I got inspired by a similar idea, a red dress with a black transparent overlay.
On Marketplace I did a search for Rosa Ray’s designs, her brand is Volstead.
Daylily, is a shorter dress than in Titanic and not likely to be worn in that movie, as you can see legs, however, an inspiration is of course not a copy.
The details on the overlay top are really well colored. You can almost feel the lace sewn on the sheer fabric.

The vintage style Rosa Ray uses in her designs is definitely her mark.
And to find shoes to match the retro look you can just stay with her now too for Slink feet, you can find a few heels in her collection. Dellamore really suits the look effortless. Both the dress as the shoes come with a recolor hud to fit your personal taste.

Hope you can get inspired too!

L’amour et lumière,
Emlies !
