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.

February is approaching and soon we will be overdosed with Valentine reds and pinks.  If you want to get a head start, check out this beautiful applier gown from Tiffany Designs.  The best part is that it’s free for group members.  The group fee is L$800 but it’s worth it!  There is a whole wall at the entrace with 10 beautiful gowns free for group members, that’s L$80 per gown.  There are also 6 suits for men you can pick up for free as well.   The group members also get 50% off all purchases at the mainstore as well as monthly group gifts.  Don’t forget to check out the group only lucky chairs and more gifts on the 2nd floor of the mainstore.  The jewelry is not free but a new release from Zuri Jewelry.   For those looking for gift ideas for your lovely ladies, make sure to check out Zuri Jewelry.  It carries a wide variety of beautiful jewelry perfect for that special someone.
