Checkmate

Every now and again you encounter a group gift that entices you to clear a group spot because you say to yourself, “I have to have that.”  When I saw AtaMe’s August Group Gift, Checkmate, it was one of those “I want that” moments.  Worn as an ensemble, this outfit hints at the provocative, so I styled it accordingly with a diamond studded blindfold and thigh-high boots.  These pieces taken individually, however, can be re-purposed in so many way.  For example, the checkered booty shorts would look great under a fitted avant garde jacket, or paired with a bright corset.  Then, the biased-cut latex top would combine nicely over a long maxi skirt or even a simple pair of leather leggings or ripped jeans.

I am a believer that what you give out always comes back to you multiplied.  AtaMe’s Checkmate certainly got me to take a second look, and it was a wonderful enticement to visit the store and see all the many sleek and sexy offerings.
