The fabric on this Mariah dress from Cachet is exquisite. The intricately worked deep gold pattern against the subtle rose background gives it such depth and style that it is irresistable. The lovely lace edging on the hem seems to move it toward romanticism, but it is drawn back by the sharp contrast of the simple lines of the bodice – successful straddling that divide between severe simplicity and romantic femininity. This sort of bold style is typical of Cachet and makes for fun and interesting outfits.
I decided to accessorize this with Amber – including the Caught In Amber necklace and Earrings from Dark Mouse. I cannot believe that such a jewelry addict as I am neglected Dark Mouse for so long. I visited for the first time this past weekend and was blown away by the wonderful jewelry. That’s the danger in making assumptions based on a store’s name. I thought it would be full of jewelry made with leather and metal spikes – but that was far from the case. Dark Mouse has elegant, well-crafted classic jewelry. I am now an official fan. Additionally, I chose the amber Babii shoes from Adam n Eve – a shoe expo purchase that made me very happy!

Thankies for the wonderful words – /me thinks I should have chosen a different name for my store too!
Well, it’s a good lesson for me in judging a “book by its title,” so to speak.
Wait I’ve been to Dark Mouse…..I need to figure out what I got from there I remember it’s really different than I expected as well…..
Love the entire outfit, especially the “Amber” theme!
heheh, I wonder why? : )
