I could not resist this Marakesh gown from Sabra Style at Fashion For Life, it immediately called to mind one of my favorite artists – Gustav Klimpt. That’s his Birch Trees in the background, but it’s the gold and brown bugle beads in an art deco pattern than made me think so much of his work .
I added Essenz flats. I love how all her shoes are named after cities and how they really do seem to capture the individual cities spirit. These are Tampa – casual and summery – ready for the beach.
My jewelry is from Moondance Boutique and has the whole Art Deco thing captured perfectly. I love that she broke the necklace into to pieces, with the lower part of the pendant separate so that is is very easy to edit into place over clothing. More folks should think of doing that. Her vendor pictures show the jewelry as full bright, but as you can see, full bright can be turned off for a more naturalistic look. Lots of people like full bright because the details show better, while others, like me, prefer jewels that are affected by lighting. I am one of those people who hesitate over what seems like full bright jewelry, but these are easily shut off. There’s serious thought about what her customers want and need in the execution of these – and fitting a necklace over a dress has never been so easy.
Vanity Hair has a new release that is so dramatic and fun that it is perfect for this gown. I tinted the headband myself by editing linked parts. It was white and I am sure there is some HUD, but I was in a rush and I think I deleted it and did not want to unpack everything again. It was super easy to change myself – father than a hud and I got to pick my own specific color.
