“Oh, We Got Trouble, Right Here in River City….”

Actually, Sascha Frangilli of Sascha’s Designs has Trouble; and now I have it.  I think I’ve seen someone wearing this in another blog that I can’t remember now; but it’s so pretty that I figured I’d give it a shot.  As it turned out, I went kind of hog-wild today at a few stores, so I had some new stuff as well to try out.

Sascha’s fabric here is a lovely royal blue silk with either a flower print or embroidery in the weave; I can’t quite make up my mind which.  Either way, it works wonderfully.  The waistline is nearly empire height; it probably would qualify, except for the flower-covered breast cups.  I like the buttons up the back as well; a nice little detail.

When you purchase this, in whichever color you prefer, you’ll also get a variety of skirts to choose from.  I went for the “sleek transparent” skirt by preference this time.  But you also get one with a normal train, a much heavier train, and then an addition in front of that (picture 9)!  It reminds me of Pink Splendor, a collectible Barbie doll from the late 1990s.  The only dress I’ve seen with a bigger skirt was Princess Diana’s wedding gown!  It’ll probably be rare to want a skirt that big, unless there’s some super-formal ball going on some time, but it looks beautiful.

A note on the hair:  I can’t make up my mind if this style is the best choice; still, I thought I’d give it a try here.  It’s also new, from Sirena, and is called Drucilla.  Like many of Sirena’s styles, this is animated.  When you wear the hair sticks, the style goes from big and loose to looped up and secured with the sticks.  The animation even has you running your hands through your hair to “do” it up or down, which is a nice touch.  I’m thinking this style is just on the borderline of being acceptable for night wear like this; your mileage may vary, and I’d like your opinions.

The details:

  • Standard shape/skin Type 1
  • Hair: Sirena Drucilla (scarlet), with hair sticks
  • Lashes: the oBscene Artemis
