Fashion. Is. Love.

Hunts will come + go, but the fashionista in me was so tickled by the name of the newest hunt organized by our friends at LP Design + Garage that I just had to shamelessly crib it for this post title. *double mwuahs Liberty Shinn + Slava Parkin*

The "Fashion Is Love" hunt kicked off yesterday here + there's tons of yummies free for the scooping (check the list of participating stores at the hunt blog site here). -- I was in a mood for neutrals, so I'm showing gifts that offer 2 takes on gray: slate + silver, both inspired by this free gray headband hair that's newly free at the Kik lucky board.
This first slate gray minidress by Sassy Kitty is clean + simple (I've been in a modernist fashion mood lately, so I left off the ripple skirt prim), which is also the perfect canvas to show off this oversized heart pendant by Garage. -- To this RL jewelry designer, this ruby-red gem is rather like collarbone candy. Yums.
This romantic dress by A&A Fashion swings waaay over to the other side of the style spectrum. Teeny tiny beading + a daringly asymmetric, lace-trimmed waist is what makes this daring concoction straddle that smexeh line between lingerie + clothing. I absolutely fiend for pieces that blur this stylistic line; plus the sheer fabric texture + hems trailing into the tummie make it tres couture. And don'tcha just love it when the color of a garment heightens the overall sense of a piece? This wispy, silvery color totally plays up the super-delicate feel of this semi-sheer look. To. Die.

I was also struck by these "Ladybug" pumps, which come courtesy of furniture (!) store MB-CreationZ. Their monthly subscribo gifts are always the cuteness + these pumps really do remind me of the kind of detail this store has become known for in their furniture. I'm diggin' this pretty sage green hue too. Awwws.
Oodles of *mwuahs* to all the designers for such awes gifties. Fashion. Is. Love. + fashionista kisses to all!
