2014 Fashion for Life: Perambulate

Layers of Texture

Perambulate is a treeish, lotusy park with long walkways, and it wasn't until I saw the sign for a skatepark that I realized the specific type of perambulation intended. The first skatepark was built in Surf City in Arizona, largely in response to skateboarders turning large parts of every city into a sort of shared skatepark with moving obstacles otherwise known as "people going about their day." Some municipalities are also combining art, landscaping, and skateparks to create enjoyable destinations for everyone - much like the loveliness that is Perambulate. Here and there are boxes of gifts - either skates or a skateboard if you want to slide your way along the smooth paths. I love the swoops and swirls inherent to the style, and the lovely embellishments of small pools and gorgeous flowers. I chose a half-light with heavy mists to set of the layered textures of the trees, and just indulged in general.

Cherry Blossom Tree

My dress is from Redux, found on Perambulate. It's beautifully textured in rich colors and two toned - a tight, gold cherry blossom pattern over one shoulder and a looser, artistic fall of pink tinted cherry blossoms along the line of the bodice and down to the skirts. I really like the texturing, a velvety touch with rich gold like illuminated texts, and it works excellently with the collar and sleeve shapes, making it seem elegant and rich. My nails match the color and tone perfectly, a rich crackled shade with solid gold bands. ZoZ (found on Promenade) really does amazing work with color and texture and I loved finding a pink which worked so well with the velvety magenta of my dress.
