Kiki from Kiki and Company Favorite Challenge

We are officially at the end of this series, and Kiki from Kiki and Company is here to take us out with a bang!
 
 

Growing up one of my favorite movies was Annie. When I heard this week was movie week, I knew exactly what I would be doing. To me, the movie Annie is about the opposites of Rags to Riches. It is the story of fiercely independent to lovingly sheltered. The pictures above looks like she is saying, "Take me home, please" vs. "I'm home". I wanted to capture the looks of both of these with my outfits this week. The first outfit is to represent the independent, orphan Annie. Updated from her look in the movie, this look of strong prints, exposed zippers and sweet details were to represent that sweet girl who wanted nothing more than to say, "Come and take me home". I love the structured flutter sleeve I added and the bubble skirt added a bit of femininity to the outfit. The leather accesories bring an extra pop.

The classic red dress was Annie's claim to fame and I knew I wanted to update it! I loved the details of the top of the dress...a tuxedo pleat with white pleats on the side, the double peter pan collar, the bubbly sleeves and the thick white stripe around the middle are some of my favorite parts. Using the amazing circle skirt again made the bottom twirl worthy and a sweet petticoat underneath added a playful touch to the dress. I love the contrast between the two of these dresses and if I watched Annie again, could totally see her in each one of these!


Head on over to Kiki and Company to see details galore and grab your Annie outfits in paper doll form.
