The FDL Paper Dolls Game (Fifth Edition)



Welcome to Paper Dolls (Fifth Edition)

Do You Play?


WELCOME to February!

The count down to Valentine's Day has officially begun. It's the Fifth Edition of the FDL Street Team's Paper Dolls game and we're kicking off this romantic month by looking to the color red for virtual outfit inspiration.

This edition's inspiration piece is a gorgeous, custom-made Yukata kimono robe/swimsuit cover up created by FDL Team Member, Uyen, at the AsianExpressions shop on Etsy.


Now... its your turn readers! Put your most fabulous fashionista hat on and help me create a memorable outfit fit for a diva on Valentine's Day! I'm looking for a cute chemise, fluffy slippers, sexy swimsuits, and other fine accessories to go with this swirly red kimono.

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 (http://www.etsy.com) and hunt for haute coordinates--I'm looking for suggestions for the whole ensemble--slippers, swimsuits, lingerie, jewelry, hair accessories (and any other item(s) that you think would complete the look inspired by this kimono!).

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...add our Paper Dolls badge to your blog!

I will be selecting items for the completed outfit next week-- so be sure to visit the FDL Team Blog then for the big reveal!

Uyen of Asian Expressions is a true artisan! Her kimonos are beautiful creations, I know because I own one! Her peace cranes and butterflies are beautiful graceful art pieces! Wonderful to see her work highlighted!

To go with Uyen's beautiful kimono, I offer you a couple earrings from my shop for your consideration: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=19327144
