#DressUp is a meme I created last year in which I put together coordinates inspired by covers of books that I really love. Here's my first post, for Murakami's The Wind-Up Bird Chronicles, some 12 months ago. Haha.
Just to clarify, this is NOT an annual thing. Haha. I just got so caught up with everything that I almost forgot about this meme.
Preppy Love by rzzzp featuring red shoulder handbags
This post's book-of-the-moment: Lang Leav's Love and Misadventure.
I've already mentioned in the past how L&M was very beautiful in person. And I know it's weird calling a book beautiful (aesthetically) but it just is. That's why putting together an outfit just for this ain't really hard. :)
I don't know, but for some reason, the book screams 'dainty' and 'preppy' without even having to open it. Like it would look really, really good next to pearls and doilies. :3 It was weird but got around with the idea and I came up with this^.
Of course, the dominating color would be red. The black and all the lace were just accents that I really think would go well with the outfit. For a little edge, I added that tight black leather skirt. For the preppy feel and all, heels with lace socks did the trick as well as that classic french beret and all that pearls. And for that extra 'oomph', a swipe of Ruby Woo would do it. Add up that gorgeous tone of nail polish and you'd have a very classic look while combining doll-esque elements and that outdor-ish vibe. Wearable? I don't know, but it works for me. :)
