Who does not love a dress with a bit of illusion? Illusion is the sheer fabric that is often used to make clothes look like they are defying gravity. If well-matched to your skin, it is invisible and can be the structural support for bodices that appear to stand on their own or, as in this Action dress from Countdown, the base for garlands of beautiful embroidery and beading.
Even on a clear and warm May evening, I like something to throw over my shoulders in case I feel a chill. This stole from Sascha’s Designs that I dug out of my inventory is a perfect complement to the dress, it’s duotone color picking up the gold from the embroidery and the pink-tipped ends adding a slightly darker shade of the same pink as the dress, tying it together with the hat. Tinting my white gloves from 5th & Oxford (no longer available) to a pale gold helps emphasize the pink and gold theme.
I added the clear crystal pumps from ISON that were initially released for the fair tale event last year. They add a touch of magic to the ensemble.
The hat is from Bliss Couture. It’s extravagantly and exuberantly feminine with a fountain of tulle behind a fan of pink and gold leaves and a lush pink rose. My updo from Vanity Hair is just casual enough to keep the outfit from taking itself too seriously. The jewelry from Donna Flora echoes the hat’s motif with its insane diamond and pink opal flower.
The gorgeous skin is from Belleza – and on sale for the weekend – one of Belleza’s Best Buys, the incredible first weekend of the month sale item.
