Figuring out her codes,

How to Coordinate Like a Boss Part 1: The Golden Rule

Polkadot Punk 11

Hello, children. Today I want to talk to you about something very important: your bodies...

...and how you dress them! It seems many people are very insecure about putting outfits together, especially when they're trying to do a particular style such as lolita. Therefore I thought it might be nice to do a series of posts on putting outfits or coordinates together. I'm going to focus on dressing in the lolita style and vintage style since I think those styles go together well, and I happen to like those styles. That doesn't mean this series can't be useful if you aren't interested in those styles. I'll be going over some principles of art and design that anyone can gleam inspiration from. Hopefully, those new to the styles will gain some confidence, and those old pros of the styles will discover some new tricks. Today we'll start off with the golden rule. So click the jump so we can get this party started.

The golden rule is to look nice and flatter yourself. This rule supersedes everything else. You can break many rules in a style as long as you come out looking awesome. Don't get too caught up with trying to create a lolita or vintage look or whatever style you're going after and forget that. In most styles, that is the key to working it. Also, everything you do doesn't have to be in that style. If you have a dress specifically for that style, it doesn't mean you always have to wear it in that style. Here's a handy flowchart to help you get dressed in the morning:

P.S. if you haven't fanned our facebook page, go over and give it a like. It's a lot easier to post small updates over there, so I'll probably post daily there and once a week (or more!) over here.!/pages/Ivy-Frozen-Productions/149607545056447

Snow White and Rose Red

red riding hood dress preview

I'm working on a fall* collection for you all inspired by the story of Snow White and Rose Red. But I'm expanding the story a bit; Snow White is also the Snow White of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves fame and Rose Red is also Red Riding Hood. Here's a quick sneak peak of one of the dresses in it, though this isn't the final version.

Working away,

Ivy Frozen

*Don't worry! I'll continue to offer my usual spring and summer things and I'll still be accepting custom orders. =)

Take to the Sky

I haven't posted my creations in a while, in part because I didn't have a song to use. Health and other issues have kept me from listening to music as much as I usually do. =( Music is the one art I don't do at all, but it also has the biggest impact on me. I usually have a song in my head, but this time I didn't. Luckily, Tori has come to the rescue again. She has a song for everything, and I'm excited to see her again in December. For this post, I've selected "Take to the Sky." I think it's very relevant to both this blog and myself at this point in time. I'll give you all credit and let you determine what the song is about.
