[ S T Y L E ] Emerald Dream

Emerald Dream

Emerald green is an unorthodox choice for a New Year’s Eve gown but this architectural piece from Virtual Diva could just pay off the risk.   Styled with drop earrings from Moondance Boutique, the look is just eye-catching.  The high waist elongates the body and the ruffles add dimension and volume in the right places.

[ S T Y L E ] Sequin Dream

Sequin Dream

Merry Christmas to those of you who celebrate this day!  I managed to squeeze some time away from family activities to put together this really quick post to show off this exquisite body suit from alaskametro<3.  I think it’s a perfect staple to be worn under a well tailored suit or tuxedo.  I think it would look great with a long skirt.  Gorgeous!

[ S T Y L E ] Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays!  Hope everyone is spending some quality time with their loved ones~  I am certainly enjoying the time off from RL.   I am currently working on some changes for my blog for next year.  I still haven’t decided what those will be but I want to revamp the style and format.  If you have suggestions on what you would like to see please feel free to drop me a note.  On to my outfit today, this beautiful beaded gown is from Tiffany Designs.  The jewelry is included.  The make up is from Arte.  The eyeshadows are new, part of Powder Pack Catwa this month.  The lipgloss is an old release but still one of my favorites.
