Dolce and Gabbana @ Pretty n Pink

i know it's only been a few days since the latest LE was droped like a bomb right into the plaza but to be honest i totally missed it (yeah i know silly-being-busy-with-real-life me). at the time i logged in everything was already gone and on top of that i'm not superstar right now so i wouldn't be able to buy stuff anyway. i deeply apologize for not doing a LE review for this collection but i simply have no motivation in doing one (show some mercy please). to make it up to my dearest readers i took some time to at least post about something else and if i'm lucky some of you may not even be into all this LE hype appreciating some fresh of topic content.

what do you think about the italian based fashion house DOLCE & GABBANA run by the famous duo DOMENICO DOLCE and STEFANO GABBANA? for a really long time i personally wasn't a fan of the brand at all. the main reason for this was the unfortunate fact that everytime i thought about DOLCE & GABBANA a picture of a snobbish, blond stuck up bitch wearing a D&G jeans, DOLCE & GABBANA sunglasses and a fendi handbag (sorry i really don't like fendi) popped into my head but a while ago my opinion of this very famous fashion house changed mainly because of the collection you can admire below and maybe because i started to take a closer look at the brand after seeing this (mind blowing) collection ...

 (all taken from style.com)

those pictrures were made at the 2013 fall/winter ready to wear show of DOLCE & GABBANE a collection wich simply left me speechless. all this elegance and feminity and power and luxury and and and ... i could go on forever. 

the even better thing is that it's possible to purchase some pieces from this exact collection for my
doll (and your doll of course) 

the sonoma dress is no longer avalible at the plaza (sorry) but there are some other dresses which are also inspired by DOLCE & GABBANA which you can easily get from the plaza but i think the sonoma dress is worth searching for at the bazaar (and i don't think the price for this dress is very high) ... 

with the fall air dress waiting at the plaza you can still get your fashion addict hands on some virtual dolce and gabbana elegance and for those of you who arn't that fashion addicted but still kind of liking the concept of the collection you can also purchase something nice, little and cheap ...


just 57 $c is what you have to pay to get a dolce and gabbana inspired little bag for your medolls wardrobe. i think that's a fair price (for SD standarts). 

i hope i could inform you about a hidden starplaza treasure you may overlooked so far or maybe you had the same bad opinion about dolce and gabbana and i could show you how wonderful their work actually is or you still don't like it and don't really care about this whole damn post (?) everything works for me.

Get The Look (Garage Punk)

so you like to look dangerous, to be edgy, to feel msireable and look like you traveld the world but overall you like the color (which isn't really a color) black. then my dear friend this GET THE LOOK post is going to be just what you've been looking for.

blackrebel motorcycle club, the kill, the black keys or the horrors are just a few bands whose music you could call garage punk music. and the key to a really nice garage punk look is pretty much dressing up like those bands. in this GET THE LOOK post the music is our fashion muse and lets be honest fashion and music are like a really annoying couple of lovebirds means you won't get one without the other.

moodboard - garage punk

this moodboard comes along a bit bloody, rough, dark and violent but that's exactly how this whole style works. i think if you're not really listening to the list of bands i mentioned above you may will face some problems achieving this style but don't go away maybe you found some inspiration anyway (think positive you know). i mean almost every style i presented in my get the look posts isn't easy to create if you have a lack of passion for the style itself. maybe that's why you always should dress like you want to and not to impress some people you may consider being "cool kids". it sounds cheesy but fucking be yourself. however i'm pretty sure the people on the pictures below (helping me to show you guys how the real garage punk can look like) are truly dress like they want to and maybe that's what makes them special.


ALICE DELLAL is someone who has the ability to make this style work. she is one of my all time favourit style icons (next to CHLOE SEVIGNEY, AGYNESS DEYN and a wonderful fahsion blogger called nadia baiyley).  



i'm a music freak, i listen to as much music as i can and maybe that's why i have the feel this looks comes natrual to me. i think about a song and within a few seconds my doll is dressed. i love using black or grey, spikes, leather, hats and biker boots for my medolls looks and those are center pieces for a original and good garage punk look. don't get me wrong i also love do dress my medoll in other styles aswell but i need more time for those looks and i have to think a bit harder to create them.

and even though SD offers the FALLEN ANGEL store for all the users having a "heavier" taste in fashion, the kind of clothes you need to create a solid garage punk look are not so easy to find. i think garage punk fashion is a mixutre of the following fashion styles: grunge, goth and punk. garage punk fashion takes the parts of those styles which are a bit more calm and not so extreme putting them together in a complete new way. which is is exactly the problem when it comes to finding the right clothes at the plaza. SD overacts most of the time so you have to pick the items who seem to be wearable but edgy and wearable but edgy is almost non exisitent at the plaza. but thanks to the latest BONJOUR BIZU collection you we don't necesarrily have to go to the bazaar at least not to buy some basic edgy material.

above you can see some clothes which would fit perfectly into a garage punk look. you may notice that most of those clothes are black i think if you like to use colors this look isn't really something for you. black should be the center of attention. of course you can use some color but i would strongly recommend to use darker colors like forest green, or a very dark blood red. if you want to spice things up feel free to combine the basic black attire with some patterns or prints (like those you can see above) but you should always try to be modest means if you use paterns they should be simple and the same goes for prints.

ok now that we have seen some real life garage punk looks, talked about all the must haves and the essentials of the style. i think it's time to see how a complete look can look on your doll. for me this look has different outcomes, even though you mostly concentrate on being onconetial you can always choose which way your look should have.

for all the girls how like the basic idea of an edgy look
but don't really wanne look to punk rock. 

  just because garage punk seems to be kind of a mascouline look 
(wiht all the black, the boots and bandshirts) 
you still can look feminin and sexy if you want to. 

 this look is a bit messy but in a street fashion way. so why not try it sometime.

so this is it! i told you all that you need to know about this style and i'm pretty sure you are going to use all my little tips to create your own special version of a unique garagepunk look.
to set the mood so you can get as creative as possible i made a little mixtape including some of the music i mentioned during this post but i have to warn you this music is a bit more raw and rough ...
