Challenge 2 – Folklore Couture

Our first MVW 2015 Runway challenge was today and the theme was Folklore inspired Fall/Winter Couture. I love the fall color palate this year, with the beautiful greens, reds, oranges, tans and caramels. They made it easy to get inspired. I immediately thought of Swedish style short dresses with ruffles and pinafores with floral embroidery and metal grommets. So that was what I set off to find. I found the dress first and knew right away it was what I wanted with a few little tweeks. I added a feather collar from My Precious I had in my inventory along with some lace up, old-world style boots I found on the marketplace. Then I found the leggings that were perfect, and added to those some leg harnesses I had from a previous look. Accessories included a hat I modified to fit my feather look and tie it together along with two rings that were just what I was looking for from Finesmith. I love what the final result was, and I hope you all do too!
