One of my absolute favorite “toys” as a kid were paperdolls. Getting to change up what someone else wears so that I think they look good? Oh yeah. Takes my whole bossy side and amplifies it. Well Suze from Miss Vinyl Ahoy announced the first ever Paper Doll Project. Basically it paired up bloggers to create a look for the other around one item. I get to dig around in someone else’s closet and tell them what to wear? Again, oh yeah. The whole project was loads of fun!
I was paired up with the very bubbly and lovely Alyson from The Average Girls Guide. And does she have style! Very funky on the mixing of patterns, colors and textures. She has an amazing scarf as her item so go check out how I dressed her.
But I have to come clean about something right now…I am really really sick with a head cold. It took a lot of drugs to get me dressed and outside to take photos. And in most of my photos I have the “eyes glazed over & noticeably red nose” look going on. This photo was the only decent one of the 50 I took…yeah 50.
My item was the dreaded black blazer. I keep wanting to work it in in new ways – gotta justify the purchase somehow. But Alyson did a fabulous job! I love the outfit and never would have paired this all together. I am promising to wear it out this weekend or next as it’s incredibly funky. Oh and I’m promising to get some suntan in a bottle…oy vey all the white!
