Welcome to the Dollhouse

What to Wear Out on Saturday, Take 1: Skinny jeans, basic black pumps, layered tank tops. Nope, so boring. OK, flowy babydoll top. Nah, adds too much volume.


What to Wear Out on Saturday, Take 2: Strapless dress, cute new bootie-shoes. Matching multi-chain necklace and bracelet. Chain-strap purse. No, way too much metal. Satin cocktail clutch, and pearl earrings. Hmmmm. Too frumpy.


Sound like a typical evening on the set of your life?

Local stylist Crystal Pancipanci can relate. She’s had lots of clients who stumble when it comes to putting together outfits that match their personal style and are appropriate for the occasion. Which is why she and her partner-in-fashion Cindy King created their Acid Dolls line of mix-and-matchable looks.

Set to launch this Thursday, Acid Dolls offers entire looks from head to toe. In fact, within each of the line’s three mini collections, tops and dresses are created to match up just right with skirts, shoes and jewelry.

There’s the Candy Land collection where flirty ruffled tank dresses are paired with sweet little flower earrings and bow-topped shoes. Or the Golden Nights collection, which mixes sexy, form-fitting cocktail sheaths with sparkle-adorned stilettos. And the Sailor Dreams collection offers preppy headbands to wear with its crisp white skirts and nautical striped tops.

So you’ll spend less time in the wardrobe department – and be out the door without a dress rehearsal.
