Well, hello, fashion fans! Did you miss me?? I’m sorry I’ve been away – more sorry than you can possibly know. (I just spent six days recovering from a sinus infection and bronchitis that sapped my will to log in or even open my laptop.) I have so much catching up to do! So, my posts will be a bit “old news” I’m afraid. But I hope you’ll enjoy them anyway. So, first on my list of “to blog” is this collaboration by +++Blue Blood+++ and Lolapop! for Etheria. As you all know by now, I’m sure, Etheria – When Jewelers Dream – is an event that pairs jewelers with clothing designers, but in this event, the jewelry was designed *first.* Now, with a name like “Fleur,” I knew right away that I’d love this Blue Blood/Lolapop collaboration. The fleur-de-lys is my favorite symbol – representative of French history and of my favorite city, New Orleans.
Fleur is a simple beaded necklace, earrings, and bracelet with a fleur de lys pendant. The jewelry is both casual and elegant, and comes in red, pink, purple, and black. You can get a good view of the earrings and necklace in the composite above. The bracelet features a large, horizontal fleur bound by chunky beads. You can see the bracelet in the next photo of the pink Fleur set. To complement the jewelry, Ghani of Blue Blood created a babydoll dress with a fleur-de-lys motif on the hemline and a larger fleur on the back of the bodice. I apologize to Ghani and to y’all – the dresses do *not* include the black stockings. I blame my still-foggy-heavily-medicated brain.
Finally, here are the purple, pink, and black dresses with the matching jewelry. (Sorry, again. I feel really rusty at writing. lol)
So, I’m back, everyone. I’ll try to oil up my blogging skills and get back in the groove once again. I have a gorgeous outfit from Nightshade, which is having a fantastic sale right now, to show you next!
Happy hunting, gathering, shopping, lovin’ (^ ^), etc. *mwah*!
