Leave your Hat on – Styling around a hat Part II

Art in Hats 01

Because I had so much fun with the stylings for the Art in Hats show, I would like to share another of my stylings made around just a hat 😉

This time the hat I started out with came from Miuccia Klaar. The amazing “The Garden in my Head Hat” shows a watering can and some huge flowers in red and pink growing out some grass.

So what to style around… I wanted to keep the hat center, but still have the colors repeated somewhere plus, I wanted to keep the art character of the hat for the whole look.

I remembered black pants from [AD] Creations, wich had 2 huge pink buttons at the belly and a long waist decoration so I jumped into my [AD] folder and tried all pants till I found them. They are part of the “Haw outfit. With the buttons at the belly and the sheer parts on the right leg they were just perfect.

To bring back the sheer part and to kinda make it pop out a bit more I decided to go with the shirt of the “Riga” outfit from SoliDea FoliEs. The amazing sleeves with the attached mesh hands are from [AD] Creations.

For the boots I chose one of my long time favourites, the “Piccadilly Overknee” mesh boots from Leezu.

For the actual Maniera Magazine December 2012 (http://manierasl.mymaniera.com/) I had the great honor to be featured in a wonderful fashion spread of Lovely Miwako. She made a special corset themed article about how different corsets can look.

We all got sent different corsets from Etchaflesh and Voluptia and Lovely asked us to style them in a vintage non typical lingerie manner. As well she wanted us all to choose one tattoo that we wear through the whole spread.

For the first picture Lovely placed me on the floor besides SterlingZen. The corset I was wearing for this picture came from Voluptia and everyone that knows me… I am a corset addicted even in RL, so to style the corset in a non lingerie way for me was like if you tell me I just won in a lottery *grins*

I love a lot the different vontage stylings from the 50’s to the 80’s ( it still scares me that 80’s are called vintage now too^^) and so I was going for my favourite urban look as well with the heavy boots and the tattoos and some fishnet stockings and torned stockings. The huge glasses and the pinup hair added the perfect finish for the look in my view.

On this picture, I had the great pleaure to be with Katherine Comet a wonderful and classy Lady that shines at my side with a wonderful corset styling that reminded me a lot on the old racing pinups I saw so many times on that collectable retro/vintage, metal signs from coke or even others… not sure how they are called in english, mostly you find them in bars 🙂

For the second look I was given the corset and the sneaker boots from Etchaflech. I added the neck corset as well from Etchaflesh, pantys and garterbelt from Maitreya.

Lovely did an amazing job in putting different ladies, diffrent looks and attitudes together to show a wide range of what corsets can do… weither of elgant, grunge, rocker, lingerie, vintage or burlesque… as different as we ladies are as different corsets can be used for anykind of styling, that you can think of 🙂
