Poisonous Enchantment

I am always thrilled by designers who do not take their inspirations too literally, but instead use them as a springboard to develop something completely unexpected. Such is the case with Valentina Evangelista of Valentina E. who used the idea of the poisoned apple in Snow White to come up with this dress. Released in quite dangerous shades of green, red and black, it contains many of the elements that suggest danger from the snakeskin it’s made of to the sinuous femme fatale design. It is a creative expression of the inspiration and totally unexpected.

Hot, Hot, Hot! In the interest of full disclosure, this dress is not without flaws, but they are flaws of the technology. She made the dress completely of mesh which meant constructing an alpha that left the side bare. This means that there are some movements and positions that force the skin to break through the mesh. I wonder if making an alpha glitch skirt under the mesh – with the lacing on the alpha would have addressed that issue, though perhaps bringing up a different problem to solve. However, if you don’t get too acrobatic, it will not be a problem.
Through sheer coincidence, I received promotional copies of these shoes while I was putting together this outfit. How is that for serendipity? They seem to have been made for this dress, though since they come in other colors, that is pure coincidence.
The newest hair release from Exile is called Dream of Paradise. I had already decided to wear this jewelry set that is a collection of group gifts from Chop Zuey that I have had for quite some time. When I put the hair on, i had to add the tiara even if it is a bit whimsical for my poisonous dress. However, I like the infusion of one bright color accent that I echoed with lipstick on my Glam Affair skin and my FLAIR manicure.
