My first flashback was over Salt and funny enough, while I have been exploring around during events and such, shortly after one event I found another designer whose store goes by the same name. I hope I didn't confuse anyone. So this Fashion Flashback is going to be over an oldie, but goodie. This designer reminds me a lot of Salt, and the only reason why I know of them is because I found it right next door to Salt's. This outfit is done by Laughing Academy.
Laughing Academy does a lot of period pieces, and again(like with Salt) it does not have any mesh items, all are prim dresses and such. Don't let the "primitiveness" fool you--the detail and the textures are really well done. The dress I have on in the pictures is the creator's flapper girl dress from the 20s. I used to wear this dress to clubs and parties. The skirt looks so whimsical while dancing, yet the dress is "form-fitting" when standing/lounging around. Again, this is a dress I got lots of compliments on, and I still do--it is really well made.

In this picture, I have it paired with a mesh olive crown I bought a few months back at The Liaison Collaborative. I think it gives a more Tuscany feel for the dress, especially with the ivy back drop...but this isn't a blog about photography. This is a fashion blog. I guess you can say this picture shows the dress's versatility. If you are looking for a fun and pretty period dress, check out Laughing Academy.
