The Princess and the Pauper

Nic and I have blogged vests before and it’s a sure thing we’ll blog them again because if there’s one word that we love when it comes to fashion it’s versatility, and vests have it.

That being said, we imposed a fashion caste system of a modern day Princess meets Pauper (aka rich bitch meets vagabond) to show how vests can be dressed up or down. This allowed us to play in an old fairy tale while finally allowing me to show off my new Gisaci wardrobe and giving Nic the perfect outfit to debut his beloved Muism scarf (told you Lucas!).

I found my pallette of chilled lilac and cool grays a sophisticated choice for the uptown side of the vest spectrum. If this oversized bag and perfectly coordinated pumps weren’t enough to make me stuck up, well I wouldn’t even give you the time of day, but that’s only because I favoured my Gisaci bangles in place of a watch 😉 . Maitreya’s Elisha Cuthbert-esque Mayte hairstyle paired with Aden’s new skin line is the perfect way to round out the Princess half of our story.

Nic is giving us quite the scenic tour of the downtown side of vests with his spin on Pauper couture. His muted, slightly grunged attire gives this look character and if he were busking you could guarantee he’d get a few bills from the bottom of my purse, at the very least. Vest aside, Nic’s accessories definitely take this look from meek to chic from the tips of his fingerless gloves to the top of his well worn short brim fedora.

As for the fairytale of the Prince(ss) and the Pauper, well… we’re both enjoying these looks too much to trade places just yet.

  1. AHhh skins…

    Aden has skins?! I’ve been away from the fashion feed for too long.

    -Portia ❤

  2. Oh come on, we all wanna see Nicolas the Princess!

    Heehee. Great looks :).

  3. @Portia – YES! Aden does an amazing job of creating a dark dramatic eye (which I love) while keeping the rest of the skin, including lips, very nude. A brilliant contrast definitely worth checking out.

    @Candy – LOL! Nic the Princess I’m not so sure, however I can tell you I’ve seen Nic the Diva a time or two…and his role as King, well that’s a given 😉
