Sabba Strega

This is a personal style I’ve developed as an inspirational foundation for the user disneybombshell, who lives in an environment that is hot and deserty, with Ocean access.

1. the limitations placed on it aren’t exactly something you have to follow and 2. the contents of this post are subject to change at random times as I or C. evolve it.

– Floral and other non-geometric patterns are discouraged

Accessories and Clothing:
– Fringe is actively discouraged as an accessory or embellishment
– Leather handbags and messenger bags

Look and Silhouette:
– Tailored Waistlines- pulling in large garments with a waist belt
– Airy and flowy clothing
– Mostly plain fabrics in neutral Earth tones, with statement color and pattern pops (as defined in “colors” and “Materials” sections)
– Illusion Layering where layering is done more with multiple fabric / layered individual pieces (such a s tiered peasant skirts) and through jewelry- instead of being done through an increased number of overall worn clothing items (such as layering multiple shirts or skirts).
