Something New and Sparkly - Three Cheers for the Orange Ocean






Dress: XOXO
Shoes: Barefeet Shoes
Bag: XOXO, Ross
Scarf: Express
Bangles: J. C. Penney's

With my custom pieces completed, my imagination was given free reign to run wild again.  And what it wanted was to chase down this fabulously graphic but somewhat conservative XOXO shift dress and punch it up with splashes of spicy orange.  So out came the orange (and red and pink and yellow and green and blue . . .) felt to be willed into a collage of haphazard shapes.  The result was this Fabulous Felt Orange Shapes Necklace.  Along with the bag and shoes, I think it warms this ice queen frock right up.  The whole thing has a 1960s vibe, or, on a less chic note, a kitschy school colors feel.  Let's hear it for blue and orange!  Yeah! 

That's enough out of you, phantom megaphone.  Now skedaddle before you start plotting to pelt your opponent with felt.
