For this first one I started with the idea of Shiro for a sun-drenched land. I think off-white and ivory are softer and maybe a bit more classic than stark white. With a little deletion and some slightly less eccentric shoes I even think you could get away with it for your next DAR meeting.
Sipping Tea on the Veranda 1 by Sabayon featuring Vintage Chiffon OP
I really love this one and would wear it to bits (okay, a feather fan is a little much, and I require my shoes be lower to the ground).
This one is inspired by the old-school sweet look. For this I thought "What would Momoko wear to the Methodist Missionary Society's Ladies' Tea?"* Upon reflection I think the tights are a bit off.
Sipping Tea on the Veranda 2 by Sabayon featuring Stripe Lace Ribbon Dress
I actually love this dress (the lace! so much yet so tasteful!) so much so I have to remind myself how stupid I look in this color (it's just too close to my skin-tone, which is a dead match for Capezio European Pink, I need my pinks darker, more dusky, or bolder) .
This collection wouldn't be complete without a co-ord for the slatternly fading Southern Belle (for reference, see any Tennessee Williams play). It is a bit less modest and pushes the bounds of good taste just a bit. She wears black, no doubt to mourn her innocence, thrown away on a man who is, upon reflection, obviously a closet case. I paired the black with ivory, both because I feel it is a sadly under-used pairing and because I feel black and white is a bit more youthful, and this a bit more "faded" and antique looking.
A Splash of bourbon in your tea by Sabayon featuring Firefly Bourbon
This is my favorite co-ord of the set. I, not being a slattern, would pair it with a nice ivory silk blouse or lace bolero.
So what do y'all think? I am just in love with polyvore for its ability to let me try out new outfits, even extravagant ones, without having to fork over the cash for every little bit first.
*Although obviously to be accurate it would need to all be Baby
PS: My posting schedule will not continue like this. I had an unexpected day off yesterday and got a lot done.
