Baroque coat – Choies
Headband – DIY
Earrings – Topshop
Mary janes – SOS
Ah, I’ve been in love with Dolce and Gabbana’s f/w 2012 collection ever since I first saw it way back in February, so when I saw this gorgeous coat on Choies, I knew I needed it to be my winter coat. It definitely does not disappoint- the embroidery is incredible, and it’s also pretty cosy, so it’s perfect for throwing over outfits for a family meal or any kind of event where you need to ‘dress to impress’ (ergh, I hate that phrase, -shudder-). After ordering the coat, I set about making a D&G inspired headband to go with it. I just sewed pearl beads, little metal roses, and gold leaves to a black velvet headband- it was very time-consuming, and I stabbed myself with the needle multiple times, but I’m pretty happy with how it turned out! Then, as the whole baroque style is incredibly decadent, I heaped on the eye make up and contouring to create a dramatic effect (though I think this trend also looks incredible with very little eye make up and a bright red or deep berry lip!).
Oh, and I just thought I’d tell you that I included the third picture here for pretty much one reason- just because I think that the pose sort of looks like the kind of pose that a gym leader in Pokemon does when you challenge them.
…I think I’ve been playing too much Pokemon, and am seeing things that are not there.
…I am not sorry.^.^’
