Diva Spotlight: Diva Tootsicle

Since I started doing this feature, it always surprises me the creativity and just sheer pose these divas portray. Today's Diva is no different, as she has been a friend of mine for years. We met via the LJ Fatshionista community, and I love her to pieces. She is so creative and has no fear about what she wears. That in itself makes her a true Diva. To me, she takes more risks than Beth Ditto, but she isn't in a huge band so she does not get as much exposure. That is why I love the "Diva Spotlight", it gives everyone the opportunity to highlight whatever outfit they wish. Again, you can be spotlighted as many times as you like, just send me the pics and the info...

Now its time to shine the spotlight on... Diva Tootsicle

Dress, Self Made (Tootsicle Original)
Shoes, Kenneth Cole Reaction (gifted)
Ring, Torrid
Batwing Jacket, Simply Fashions

This is one of my favorite outfits lately. The entire palette is pastel, which I don't always do. Usually there is some dark element in an outfit (most often just because my shoe choices are limited) but here, the entire thing nudges soft and inviting. The bat wing style jacket is a thin light fabric, so it has a tendency to float around - sometimes exposing some of the crochet sleeve of the dress. The braided white upper of the wedge mimics the sleeves intricate, fussy detail too. I tend to over-accessorize at times and I've found a big , interesting cocktail ring adds the necessary pretties I want when picking jewelry. In my outfits I love detail, sometimes more than the overall silhouette which is the case with this choice.

This outfit is a favorite because the shoes are comfortable, the fabric patterns & weight are cheery and feminine, I feel that I still look put together even if I ditch the jacket -- and of course, I like to show my legs.

Isn't she lovely?!! Show her love in the comments...
