Dress Me Up Challenge - Suggestion 1

I just have to say, I love this whole dress up challenge!!

My first suggestion from Terri was to go with a retro 50's badass type vibe. I admit, I had to really think about this! How do you pull off a retro look without looking crazy? There's a fine balance between retro and bad fashion sense.

After looking around, I decided on the Cha Cha outfit from Artilleri. From there the rest of the outfit just fell together!

Dress Up Challenge - 1-2

Dress Up Challenge - 1-1

The high waisted pants made me look SO curvy from the backside! I paired it up with tattoos from Canimal, facial piercings from Flipside [which you can't REALLY see all that well and I should have worn the darker ones], shoes from Stiletto Moody, bracelets from Soulfire [no longer in SL], ETD hair in black, since I felt it fit the theme, and a cigarette I had in my inventory.

I have to admit, I felt completely awesome in this outfit, and like a tough girl! It also felt modern enough for me to wear again when I'm just out shopping. It is NOT something I would have normally worn, for sure. But I absolutely love it! Thanks for the suggestion, Terri!!

If you'd like to play dress up with me, read the post right under this one and get in on the fun!
