More Ivalde Love

Okay, this is probably bad form – blogging a freebie that is no longer available, but I wanted to highlight Neferia Abel’s generosity as well as show you how simple accessories like a belt and a shrug can change your look.  This was a fairly vampish sheath, but with the shrug, the sleeveless vamp quality is dialed down and the modishness is dialed up. You see, any freebie from Neferia is just as well-made as her regular items and could just as easily be on the wall with all the other items for sale. Not only that, but she she has given an item a day during Christmas Advent season – this particular dress was an Advent present from 2007.  Her group members often get one free color of her new releases (or they did when I was still a group member) I had to drop the group a while back because of space issues, but still remember rushing to get the free color and perhaps one or two other shades when a new dress came out.

To jazz it up a bit I added the belt from Tres Jolie’s Ode a Vivienne and a shrug from Little Rebel. Shrugs are great investment dressing as they can easily change the style of a dress without creating many conflicts with the original design.

With the pearls on the collar of the shrug, I opted to not wear a necklace. There’s plenty to catch your eye with the rest of the accessories. The pink and black polka dot bracelet, the black with silver stud earrings – echoed by the belt as well. The key point to draw from this outfit is that you can with simple accessories like a belt and a shrug, change a look from vamp to mod.

I finished off with lovely makeup in the new tan skin tone from PXL Creations Grace – with rose lips.
