In Jezebel, Bette Davis decides to wear a red dress to the Olympus Ball where all the men wear black and all the women wear white. If it were as brilliantly made as this dress from Sysy’s, how could she have resisted?

Of course, since film plots always punish independent and strong women, her fiance dumps her over the dress. There’s duels, plagues and death – and it all could have been avoided it she had only been obedient  and worn white. Of course, then she would not have been interesting enough for a movie, now would she?

The dress fits like a glove to the knees before opening out with a gorgeous lower skirt prim. Notice how the rich brocade pattern ends before the hem of the skirt – a detail that shows careful craftsmanship.

The jewelry is from Dahlink’s and is also available on OnRez. Normally, I wear it without the tiara, but it’s New Years.

Cupcakes Celebrity Christmas skin – in red and green -bring another touch of drama to the whole look. The hair is Tami McCoy’s Debutante.
