The drama of Baroque

Something of an antidote to the season's dominant simple clean lines and pale colours, this month's Collbor88 has chosen baroque as the theme. Collabor88 is a year old this month, and celebrates with an extra large collection with items from every designer that has guested over the past year. As usual, this collection doesn't disappoint, and it confirms Collbor88 as one of my all time favorite shopping destinations. 

Full of lush deep colours, vibrant patterns and elaborate styling, this collection is packed with must have's, and all at bargain prices, so you can still afford to buy some gems, even if the Vintage Fair has left you almost broke!

I fell in love with Glam Affair's Roza Baroque skin, one of the undisputed stars of the Collabor88 collection - ultra pale, almost grey, skin, with gorgeous, delicate, shading - there are 3 versions - shown here is the first, with the most beautiful deep purple lipstick, one almost bare, and one with pale red lips and eye makeup. At only 188L$ each, I went for all 3 - fantastic value!

I'm also loving this fab headpiece and ring from LaGyo - there's a necklace in the collection too, but I wanted something different for this look. This top from r2 is daring, with a dramatic cutaway back and a cutesy tie bow positioned just to get all eyes on your butt! The texture is simply gorgeous on these. I hope you enjoy my purple baroque look as much as I have wearing it!
