Wear This Today - or how to dress up like Poppy Parker

If you read this blog regularly, you should remember that quite a while back I did a photo session with Poppy Parker as a Bride for the bridal-wear website of a dear and talented friend, Margarita. Well, apart from that one, she also runs (with her also talented boyfriend Stelios) another site called wearthistoday, which helps answer the eternal dilemma: what to wear each day of the week (for women AND men alike). I had an idea that we could run a post there, showing how to dress like a doll in real life. I started searching for a doll to use. That meant finding one that would be relatively easy to match her outfit with real-life clothes and accessories. I finally settled on Sweet Confection Poppy Parker: she looks gorgeous, photographs well and her outfit consists of separates that are easier to research than a particular dress or gown. It also fits with the aesthetics of wearthistoday. Then the real work started - doing the photo shoot first and finding the clothes that would make up her outfit and accessories translated for a real person - who should also be able to buy them on-line. After that came through, I picked lots of photos and, along with the results of my search, forwarded them to Margarita and Stelios, who made the final selection of clothing and accessories and the gorgeous layouts for the website. My guest editor appearance appeared on Friday 11th of May. Here are the layouts:

This is the clothing and accessories we picked for wearthistoday - go to the website to buy them on-line

 This is a composition of various Poppy photographs with details of the accessories. You'll notice the coat is not in the previous layout (due to the season demands) but I found a similar one from Burberry's and one from Kippys.

They even made a layout for me as a small presentation of who I am and what I like. Thank you so much Margarita and Stelios for this wonderful opportunity to work together - loved every minute of it! And all of you reading this, check out wearthistoday - it might help you find lots of great clothing and accessories options!

Below is a selection of various photographs from the shoot. I must say this Poppy is one of the best out there. The detail and workmanship on the outfit and accessories is great, her suntanned skinned, bubblegum make up and bouncy hair look perfect and she is to die for. It was the last W Club doll for 2011.

So stylish in that coat and scarf!
