Wunderkind and the Top Hat




This draped, orange, Toile de Jouy dress is from Wunderkind SS 2010 collection. Wunderkind is a German label, shown during Paris Fashion Week, founded by the genius Wolfgang Joop. Joop definitely makes the list of my favorite designers because his collections are always innovative, surprising, exciting and meaningful.

To add some fun to this dress, I decided to pair it with a cute Mini Top Hat Hairpiece from Tilly's and the gorgeous Christian Louboutin shoes with leather ruffles. The illustrated model is also wearing some fabulous jewelry - a special edition Gucci bracelet watch made of shiny black stainless steel, as well as ABS by Allen Schwartz Black Diamond and Crystal Bangles (which btw look amazing in real life. I know this because I got some as a gift for my sister's b-day last summer - but hers are all in black crystal).

  8. Carmen: Thank you for the wishes and Happy New Year to you too! and thanks for the answers. I loved roland froga very much - but found it hard to navigate his site not understanding Portuguese.

    Camilla: Your blog is adorably stylish - you have a beautiful girly fashion sense that I adored. Thanks for your comments and sorry about the lateness in reply.
