Salty Candy say it isnt so

The other day as I was island hopping with Jaydie, I took her over to DP Serendipity to grab those fab pants I posted in the past.

While we were there, we decided to explore a bit more and found the PigSight section.

Cruising around the little vendor booths I came across this fabulous 1920's styled Flapper Dress and I was inspired..not just by Jaydie saying it would look cute on me *huggles Jaydie* but also because I knew just the hair for it.

The dress is the Black Flair Dress by Salty Candy and it was a staggering 80L lol. Mind you I have done a Sasy Take on it on the sides of this pic, so be aware the four in the centre are the parts you get in this set.

It is a divine 1920's creation, and I just love that whole era, there are two styled tops to the dress but I was too in love with this lace trimmed one.

A few weeks ago I went over to Bossa Nova and came face to face with the Laylah hair, that comes with the incredible Turban and Gemstone, be aware also lol that the Turban texture has been modded, its a divine floral black and grey when you buy it, but the pattern was too different to show with this dress.

I am so enamoured by this hair/turban combo, as all I need now is a yap yap white dog and I will be in Classic Film Heaven. To keep with the theme I am wearing vintage stockings from
N°9 Nylons , that have an incredible assortment of stockings and garters in an array of fabulous colours. I have on an older pair of tanned seamed stockings in the main pics and then the NEW Neon Black (stay ups) in the Sasy Take pics - giggles because I now have to remember to keep calling it that when I do those.

I was playing with the two different attachments for this incredible dress, and decided that the top part would look great with possibly another style top under it, crossed my fingers and YAY it worked. The top underneath in the Sasy Take is the Braided Bodice top from the dresses by Popfuzz Designs ( I am blogging them soon I promise) lowering the chest piece a smidge it lined up really well.

Then I added the Risque set shorts by Cashmere, but I did tint them black, so now as you can see the look is more of a Cigarette Girl in a Jazz Club kind of dealio lol - I so wanted to be one of those even though I was born 50 years too late, that and a DooWap girl, you know the back up singers of that era lol.

The shoes because again they suit the theme so well are the ETD Heel Strap Platforms and the buckles on the sides in silver just complimented the Silver Medallion set Jewelry from Essentia, with hair that tight and short I needed big yummy earrings.

I hope you take the time to run over to the Salty Candy store, there isnt much there but this dress is a definite need and the price rocks. Also go check out this incredible Hair from Bossa Nova, I was so out of the loop I had no idea Moire did hair, Laylah is a definite Must Have if you love vintage.

Hmm I wouldn't have thought of that combination. For a turban style hair, I'd pick a formfittnig gown with long sleeves and high collar :)

it so would look excellent with a long gown too, that was going to be my first plan until I got the dress :) hugs
