Luxetips Style! Fashion Plates and Paper Doll Sets: Modcloth Bringing Out the Kid In You
Speaking of fashion plates (I mentioned them in a recent post about creating your own shoes): did you own fashion plates? Sometimes, I get the urge to be a big kid and go buy some crayons and a color book. Last year I ran across a paper doll set and fashion plates at Modcloth that may be great for your little fashionista or they may be a great stress reliever for the big kid in you. The Next Betsey Fashion Designer is the real deal. It reminds me of the fashion plates I once owned. If you are not familiar with the concept of fashion plates, you switch out different parts of an outfit to recreate new outfits. So you can mix and match shoes and bottoms and tops. Then place your paper over the plate and rub with a crayon. It is so fun. I know they have computer programs for this, but using your hands to do something creative can be very therapeutic. You can find the Next Betsey Fashion Designer at Modcloth for $ 8.99.
The Anna Sui Paper Doll Parade Stationary Set is an adorable retake on a blast from the past. With ipads and Wii’s it is really easy to forget what seemed like a timeless tradition- paper-dolling. The Paper Doll Parade Stationary Set is designed by the famed designer and includes some of her best fashion illustrations for you to share with friends. It is not a Paper Doll set per set but a Stationary set that you can take apart and write letters. How cute! The Anna Sui Paper Doll Parade Stationary Set sells for $14.99 at Modcloth.
