If you have been tempted to splurge on a dress from Tres Jolie, this is a good week to give into temptation because through Valentine’s Day, for everything you buy, you will get a copy of this lovely red Valentine’s Day dress free. Since her clothes are no copy/transfer, that makes for some lovely gifts as well. UPDATE: You can also get this dress free with a L1000 donation to the Victoria Bushfire Donation box at Tres Jolie.

You probably have already realized that I have an intensions-defying budget-breaking love for the marvelous clothing from Tres Jolie – not just for the ultra-feminine and oh-so-sexy form with the system clothing blending so naturally and beautifully into the prim skirt, but also for the innovative and unique textures. This dress has a more traditional texture, but that just pushed Iota to step it up a notch.

This illustrates what I mean. Look at the edge of the sleeve, do you see the shadows that it seems to cast on the skin? Look along the line of the back and again notice how the natural shadows that show between the clothes and the skin are there giving the clothing a rare verisimilitude.

Here you can see that same effect from the other side. Meanwhile, take a moment to admire the lovely Victoria updo from Truth – and rush to get your own version because 100% of the proceeds will go to fund Red Cross efforts to help the people displaced by the fires in Australia.

The shoes are Aphrodite Creations Sasy – in rouge. All the jewelry but the necklace is from Callie Cline. The necklace is from Tres Jolie and I got it with the Valentine Dress.

The makeup is the new Light Tan version of PXL Creations EFE that I features over the weekend. Incidentally, the Callie Cline Diamond Drop set is a great investment for formal accessories as the center gem is color changing to suit many dresses. Now, if only Callie made a necklace for it.

For the relief effort, there are many stores where you can donate. Iota has a donation kiosk in her store. Purchasing special items like this hair is an option where you get when you give. Dakokta Buck is keeping an updated list of creators and stores selling items that benefit the fund. On the side of  the web page in hte blog roll, there’s a direct link to the Australian Red Cross and you can give there as well.
