Day 25 Challenge - Fashion

Toady's challenge is inspired by a piece of fashion from musical My Fair Lady. Actually, it is inspired from the movie musical with Audrey Hepburn and Rex Harrison. If you've never seen it and you can sit through a musical, do watch it sometime - it's classic.
Here is  Eliza's dress from her very first outing with Prof.  Higgins and Col. Pickering. This was Eliza's first test of all the grueling work Higgins had put her through. Poor Eliza was stuffed into this fabulously ridiculous dress and hat that nearly makes her tip over.




 

And here is the mani that resulted from my reminiscing down memory lane in fashion. Hopefully the second picture gives a bit better view of the floral stamp I did as the lace on her gown.
I started with one coat of Sinful Color in Snow Me White, stamped with SC in Tokyo Pearl using BM 306 and SC Back in Black with CH 24 for the black striping and bow.  While I was just going to do my left hand for the challenge, I loved it so much I decided to make it my mani for today.  I doubt it will last long, as it's cleaning day, but it's worth it. :-)
