This is my contribution to the Paper Doll Project, organised by Suze of Miss Vinyl Ahoy, in which bloggers were paired up to style each other. I was paired with Marie of Watch Me Dress, a fellow lover of bright colours and layering. Hurrah!

Paper Doll Project

When signing up for the project, we were asked to select one item that we wanted styled, and I chose this bubble skirt that Dave made a while ago. In that weird way I have with patterns sometimes, I’ve only really worn it with quite plain things, so it was great to have some input.

Marie chose to pair it with a bright red top and shoes, and a little denim jacket (in keeping with her style, she rocks the blazers, jackets and cardies!). And I love it! Thank you Marie!

I went back to that warehouse office building for photos. I was more limited in my choice of tripod posistion, because it was sunny (for once) and photographing from the light into the shade or vice versa is too much for my camera. As evidenced by this light infused outtake of my first attempt at a location:

    Love this outfit! Looks so cute! I also like your photo shoot location – the reflection of the blue sky in the windows is lovely!

    That outfit looks great. I like the grey tights and red shoes combo.

    Marie did a great job on your outfit. Very cute. I have a similar jacket. I need to wear it sometime soon.

    I love the final photo – the light is beautiful. I love this look. Marie did a great job.

    I have a skirt in that fabric (in a different colourway) which is too big on the waist for me and is on my sewing pile. You've inspired me to finally finish it and get it worn.

  • Helgavontrollop 22 March 2011, 10:31 pm

    That is such a pretty look,and I do love your gorgeous face!
    Sounds like a fun project!
    I like the light coming throught the fence palings…..

  • Terri 22 March 2011, 11:51 pm

    Love the last photo and the light slicing through the fence.

    I was looking through the fellow Paper Doll participants and came across your blog. How excited am I not only to see your lovely outfit but to discover you're also from Edinburgh! I was beginning to wonder if I was all alone. Lovely to meet you.
