Paper Dolls (3rd Edition-Vintage): Do You Play?

Welcome to Paper Dolls (Third Edition)

Do You Play?

I'm a big fan of Vintage clothing, so for the Third Edition of the FDL Street Team's Paper Dolls game, I looked to the Vintage sellers on Etsy for virtual outfit inspiration. So, this edition's Paper Dolls inspiration piece is this beautiful Black Velvet Vintage Puffed Sleeve Dress (shown below) from theabomb shop at the online marketplace, Etsy.

Now... its your turn readers! Put your most fabulous fashionista hat on and help me create a memorable outfit fit for a diva!

Do You Want to Play? If so, here's how the Paper Dolls game works:

1. Take a good long look at this week's inspiration piece.

2. Browse ANY shop on Etsy ( and hunt for haute coordinates--I'm looking for suggestions for the whole ensemble--hats, jewelry, belts, scarves, shawls, purses, bags, shoes, hair accessories (and any other item(s) that you think would complete the look inspired by this outfit!).

3. Once you've found your items, come back and leave a comment and be sure to leave a link to your recommendations by including the item URL from Etsy.

4. (Optional) If you like this game and want to help the FDL Street Team pass the word on, click the "Stumble It!" link below so other can stumble across our new game too:

Stumble It!

I will be selecting items for the completed outfit soon -- so be sure to visit the FDL Team Blog next week for the big reveal! And, in the meantime, tell your friends about Paper Dolls and let them know they are invited to come play too.
