Since I mentioned that sexy romantic hairstyle look the LOTR films inspired I thought I’d point out one special shop that makes fashions (not costumes) that would look wonderful in the holiday season with hairstyles inspired by Lord of the Rings or medieval times. Wearing a costume for fun is one thing but to be in the inspired fashion and not have it be costumey is something not every clothing maker can achieve. I will from time to time feature one special clothing designer (send in suggestions too!) and this one seemed appropriate to show now, Gypsy Moon. Photo, Gypsy Moon
I will point out the sales items since they are the greatest bargains but of course check out the entire site for amazing fashions that inspire thoughts of fairytales and pirate adventures but do not look like you are going to a halloween party. These are real fashion! Here are some lovely pieces to snap up quick for your holiday party.
Red Silk Two Piece Dress “Perfect little two-piece dress to wear to all the parties coming up…and later, split it up and wear the washable silk charmeuse pieces all year around! The skirt is fantastic…one-of-a-kind with cut velvet underskirt. Size M Red Silk Two-Piece Dress $198.00”
Rose colored Favola dress “The basic Favola Dress, suitable for fairytales of all kinds. This one is in a soft rose-colored velvet, in size M…also available, one in Black M and one in Sepia in S/M. Originally $489. but the last three are only $198.”
Ski Bar Holiday Special “The skirt is suede with applied jewels and other bits, very rich-looking and it has it’s own tulle petticoat that shows just a little, to add that feminine something. With that, you will need a non-bulky layer to wear under sweaters so that when you’re by the fire, you can take something off and look delicately elegant. This top, made in a subtle lavender gray with Asian-inspired flowers and extra long sleeves, has a beautiful cut and a slight sheen. The two pieces are going for less than the price of one…Merry Christmas! M/L $188.”
Yantar Convertible Dress “Slip it on with boots or over a pair of black pants and you’re suddenly chic…cool, elegant and together. Tired of that? Just pick up your hem and slip it over your arm….suddenly a whole, new avant-garde look that is fuss-free! Knitted linen, soft and natural…and at this introductory price, how can you possibly go wrong? Size M Half-price for you to try…. $228.00”
