Paper Dolls: Time to Play! (April 2009 Edition)


Paper Dolls (April Edition):

Do You Play Paper Dolls?


Welcome to April. It's time for another round of Paper Dolls here on Etsy's Fashion Design & Lifestyle Team Blog. This month's virtual fashion game (where you help us coordinate an outfit based on an inspiration), starts off with an uber-hip, punk-inspired, eco-chic tube top with a bold, black and white graphic print. And, since the top is upcycled from an new shower curtain, its been lined
with grey taffetta for wearable comfort.

CBGB Top
from Jinxedasposed Clothing
(jinxydv8.etsy.com)

Now... its your turn readers. Put on your most fabulous fashionista and help coordinate a memorable outfit based on the inspiration piece.

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

1. Check out this week's inspiration piece.

2. Browse ANY shop on Etsy (http://www.etsy.com) and hunt for coordinates to complete the fashionable look, using the CBGB Top from FDL Team Member, jinxydv8. You may look for boot/shoes, jewelry, accessories, bags, and any other items any Etsy shop (including your own).

3. Once you've found some items that match, come back here and leave a comment with an item listing link.

We will be selecting the items you list in the Comments below and revealing a complete outfit in two weeks-- so be sure to come back to the FDL Team Blog then for the outfit reveal.

the top is so modern and funky... I like the contrast with this vintage necklace:

Thanks for showcasing my CBGB top, the curtain was just too cute, to be a shower curtain!
