Let Me Explain My Banner

I actually had quite a lot of fun creating that banner - I've always loved playing with graphics, and I finally figured out how to make layers more and less transparent. Anyhow, as for the actual banner itself... The dresses are from that rack in Betsey Johnson. Since this is a blog with my opinion of fashion, I have to admit something: I really don't like Betsey Johnson. I feel most of her pieces are tacky and overdone. That said, I understand why it's such a well-loved brand. Each piece is extremely feminine and indulgent, and what girl doesn't love to play dress up every once in a while? Then the question would be: If I don't like Betsey Johnson, why would I put her dresses in my banner? I'm not that extreme. I love fashion itself, and I often find myself appreciating a jacket or a pair of shoes that I never would have thought to wear. For example, the Balmain military jacket. It's insanely over-the-top with all of the ornate crystal patterns, but some people (like Beyonce) are able to pull off something so extreme, and look fabulous doing it. So back to my point, I actually do love some of the Betsey Johnson party dresses - a party dress should be just that: fun and outrageous!
