Lure me in
Simply Elegant on all counts.
These incredible formal affairs are just created with such attention to detail, and an abundance of incredible prim work.
The first gown is the Black Leopard Ruffled Silk Gown, and there are many different attachments needed to take on that incredible full gown skirt. But you will not regret using any of them. Firstly the shape and length and the train like structure of the skirt is just marvelous.
But it is so much to do with the fact that each section is an intricate pleate carefully placed in such a way as to flutter with movement. The pleates are a fold of wonderful fabric and the way it has been textured is a delight. This is not a gown though for a laggy affair , as all up the skirt alone has over five hundred prims, but again soooo worth each and every one of them.
The bodice to this gown is a beautiful leopard print in a black and grey combination, so that is me loving it just for that alone. Though when its made in such a beautiful way with carefully laced back and a stunning corset style, I think I would love it if it was green with purple polka dots lol.
Another stunning part to this Black Leopard Ruffled Silk set is that gorgeous Black Pearl Necklace, I love the high neck choker look and this is that and more, its elegant and extends the line of the neck with grace and style.
The next dazzling dress, is the Red Leopard Ruffled Silk Babydoll, again just splendid with the same stunning pleat effect in this full layered babydoll style, I would love to see more layered babydolls, allot of work would have to go into them, but it really is effective.
You can see in that picture a bit closer how amazing the ruffled pleats really are for both stunning creations. I also love the way the bodice on the baby doll has been made , with the small cut out at the empire line moving upwards to the cleavage, giving it a strapless bra cup fit and so effective, the clasp at the centre is a small ruby clasp that ties it all in together.
With this dress I am wearing an old favourite, which are the Bonita heels, beautifull strapped slip ons that come in an abundance of colours as well as two tone combinations, like these in the red/black, perfect for this adorable and stylish look.
Almost lastyly is the Blue Leopard Ruffled Silk Dress, this time a cocktail length style, with a halter neckline that ties us at the back in a perfectly drawn bow, again to keep you cinched and possibly perky the lacing down the back is scrumptious. A tiered cocktail length skirt in again the primtastic silk ruffles, its coquetish and fun , especially with the cute as a button hat perched at the front of your hair, with lace or without you get both options, but I have always always been a die hard fan of veiled hats like this, they are soooo striking and mysterious.
The shoes worn with this set are the Ekota heels, a cross strapped front heel which I think is in keeping with the timeless beauty of the dress and hat.
Now before I get too distracted by the beautiful Allure skins, I want to point out that not only does the Black Leopard come with french cut lace panties, but so do the Blue and Red dresses, just so you know ;).
Ok so, months and months of work has gone into Allure and it shows, there was always a wait for more in the other skin ranges in the past, and were always heavily anticipated by all, but the NEW Allure skins we have been teased about for what seems like months and months, with the lovely Samara dropping little hints and reminding us of goodies to come.
Six beautiful tones – somehow I lost one in my shoot, I have no idea which one will be mine this time around, as I used to have a set one that I used to always buy even though on occasions I would hesitate and um and ah about making a change to a lighter tone, but would always leave happy with my usual lol. But this time round they are definitely more distinct and so beautifully shaded.
But still managing to keep that softness I have always talked about in the past, yes CJ Carnot and Roslin Petion of Fleur have definitely done a tremendous job on Allure, and so need a foot rub and a bottle of their favourite beverage for the rest of the week, maybe two bottles.
The make up that I am wearing is the Lounge, three make ups in one style as per the usual Fleur way. Smokey eyes and full lips, with a very distinct nose and cheeks , I so adored Vivant, as did many of you , but this is definitely a hybrid of the Vivant line, similar in the beauty it always captured, but with a definite change all round. DEMO DEMO DEMO. Oh and Allure Accessories heehee, panties and eyebrows for hair options in Blonde, Brown, Black and yes RED .
The stunning hairstyles I am wearing with todays post are the New Nikhita and Nikhita 2 , I love the upswept and twisted front of both styles, and the loose chignon at the back of one or the lose cascading curls of the other, two styles you could interchange for many occasions.
Jewelry is the Medallion Bracelet from the Medallion set, and the Black Grey and Grey Black Hair Roses are just as usual stunning and my all day wear.
