*Review* Ornamental Life

Shir Dryke, owner of Ornamental Life, made me go “oooh!” yesterday when I put on for the first time her latest creations.  Here are two of the items that instantly caught my eye. “Back to School” and “Lucy in the Sky” both come jammed packed with colors and mixing and matching options.  I still enjoy the fact that Shir doesn’t label her clothing with the usual colors (ie, black, white, blue, etc). Instead she uses unique and creative color names.  For instance, “Back to School” color is black but she called it “Called to the Blackboard” – CUTE! Ok enough about the behind the scenes, lets check out the details.  A unique element on “Back to School” is the long sleeves with the thumb holes. I only showed the one skirt design but there is a longer skirt as well. The hair and hat is a combo deal – and included in the fat pack with two other color options (brown shown).

“Lucy in the Sky” (shown in “with moonstones”) screamed cute and innocent.  Its a mod empire waisted babydoll with a lacey hem.  What really made me take a second look were the knee-high socks with prim bows…. up prim bows. Yummy! Cute, cute and more cute!

I’m really not kidding – each folder was loaded with multiple layer options and colors. I really had a hard time picking what color – I loved them all!!
