It’s so refreshing to see a gown in bright yellow.  It’s like a ray of sunshine, a glimpse of hope in these days of extreme cold weather.  This applier gown is a new release from Tiffany Designs.  It’s available in various colors but yellow has definitely caught my attention.    The gown comes with matching headband and beautiful jewelry set (a necklace and a pair of drop earrings).   I love it!

“Celine” is another original mesh gown from Virtual Diva Couture, part of its Winter Collection.  Just when I thought ball room gowns were so passé, Virtual Diva Couture proved me wrong.  This modern twist to classic ball room gown is not only up to date, but also très romantique styled with beautiful rose jewelry also original mesh included in the set.

“Burgundian Fur Gown” from Dreaming Thicket is majestic and elegant, and only a magnificent set of jewelry would be appropriate.  I chose to wear Moondance Boutique’s “Ceres” embracing grace and poise.

Yellow and black is a color combination I like very much as seen here, here, and here.  Today I got to play around with this gorgeous gown from Pink Ice, an exclusive at Dazzle.  It’s available in various color but the yellow color just spoke to me.  If you are daring, you could wear this gown on its own, but I wanted a bit more coverage so I picked out this gorgeous sequin see through body suit from alaskametro<3 to wear under the gown.  I added some statement pieces from Modern Couture to glam it up.

Niterose

Niterose is another of my picks at Dazzle.  You have probably seen this mesh gown shape before but PaperMoon has spiced it up with rose decorations and flexi skirt additions creating beautiful movement.  The four roses on my hair are included.  I have rearranged them to fit my hairstyle.   The rose jewelry is from IT!  It’s an old release but I thought it went beautifully with this gown.
