Fashion Friday: Summer Fashion

On this Fashion Friday, I’m beginning a new mood board that features summer colors that all women of fabulousness can wear. I’ve been playing like a little girl on Polyvore, which reminds me of when I played with paper dolls as a child.
Paper Dolls
I would sit for hours dressing each piece of cardboard with different outfits. The hardest parts were cutting (prior to punch outs) the pieces out of the book and trying to keep the clothes on the dolls. I had no such trouble on Polyvore.
In this first set, Olivia Wilde is wearing a swimsuit. However, she will have to come out of the pool sometime. She may be younger than 50, but the colors in her photo here, could make any woman feel a little “wilde.”I Livia Wilde

Below you see Katy Perry in both sides of her personality. Dark and beautiful. We can all do this style without extremes. And if my gulf coast readers happen to be a fan, she will be in New Orleans on October 8, 2014 at the Smoothie King Center.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my “creations” as much as I did creating them. I may just have to order some paper dolls. I was surprised to find that they are still sold today.

  1. Paper dolls used to be one of my most favorite things. Thanks for the pleasant little memory jog!

    Polyvore is a really fun thing to “play” with — I have done a few, and gotten lost for a few hours.
