The Long and the Short of It

Sonatta Morales is a genius at making gorgeous gowns that you can picture all the great divas wearing. When I am in her store looking at the clothing, I am seeing Bette Davis, Joan Crawford, Greta Garbo, Marlene Dietrich and Clara Bow – and the rest of the pantheon of glamor and talent. This *8* Jewel gown is certainly one of those fit for a diva – but unlike a RL gown, this one comes in long and short versions with a quick adding of a prim or three.

With three prim options for the full length skirt, you can elect the fullness of the skirt and whether the silver braid on the bodice and hip trails down the skirt. You can also elect to wear the gown without prims as a long sheath dress – or as in the first photo, wear the shorter version. There you can see the lovely pumps from Baiastice with the crystal in the heel and on the buckles.

The skirt moves naturally, settling into place while shifting from pose to pose. The poses are from EverGlow and available at Pose Fair.  As you can see in these choices, they have a natural look and are great for modeling clothes.

This extraordinary Celestial Necklace set from Dahlinks is a great investment piece – it allows you to choose the color of the gems and metal giving you great flexibility and practicality.  The modern abstract styling is an excellent counterpoint to the somewhat vintage styling of the dress – giving the entire look the feel of today – particularly with the excellent and perennial favorite EA haircut from Amrita.

You have probably already discovered that Belleza’s new Elle skin has been released. It’s been featured in several skin reviews and it deserves all the attention. Look at the gorgeous makeup.  If you have a limited budget for skins, I recommend excellent skins like these that have the sort of subtle and refined makeups that you can wear with everything.  This makeup is an ideal evening look and could be worn with any outfit from the most dramatic and glamorous to more casual to the avant garde. It’s not just beautiful, it’s practical too.

    Sonatta is definitely brilliant in her chosen field of vintage clothing. I own several of her pieces, which I wear when I’m visiting in the 1920s Berlin Project. Great look, Cajsa!
