Black Velvet

In my experience, velvet is one of the trickier textures to do well in our pixel clothing, so I am so pleased with the lovely black velvet and brocade dress from Prelude. Like everything from Prelude, it comes in an over-stuffed folder full of options. In this case, you have every possible layer option and choices of the level of sheerness in the bodice as well as the option of wearing a jacket or not.  Sweet! Don’t those Maitreya shoes stir up the hotness factor as well?

The optional jacket is a rich silk brocade of black on black and offers a subtle contrast to the rich black velvet in the skirt.

Without the jacket, the lovely sheer bodice is a real stunner and a great frame for showing of the lusciously extravagant Muse Melusine jewelry.

The Gigi hair is from House of Heart and comes with the hat built in. The hair has been tinted to my shade of red as the HoH reds just don’t get dark enough for me. The skin is the always elegant Grace from PXL Creations – my go-to skin for when I want to look my most sophisticated.
