A night out can take on many different looks, whether it be high formal or just smart dressy you want to be prepared. These three dresses actually remind me of things, and memories are always good.
This one actually reminds me of my best friends mum, don’t laugh that woman had a killer wardrobe. One thing she was really into and could actually carry off what animal print, the woman looked like Tina Turner with more tude, the woman was a cracker.
The Zebre Accent dress is not something to wear lightly, a mix of animal print in this gown/dress is definitely an entrance maker. I really like how the creator behind the label WigWamBam really likes to make a splash with prints. The lightning bolt effect running up the middle of the dress and finishing with a one strap look is daring and fun.
Also daring and fun is the SiREN-Amber-CHASKA skin from The Obscene, this was actually a give away skin earlier this week at Crush Row, not too sure if it is in fact still available but definitely go check. I have been finding excuses to change back into it over and over again all week. Definitely dramatic, The Obscene skins that I have seen are very noteworthy, the highlighting is very adventurous and there are some splendid makeups for different dressy looks, DEMOS DEMOS DEMOS.
Zoey is the name of this wonderful hair from Philotic Energy, the style is a razor cut, with loose tendrils falling at one side, the tendrils are fab, as there are three to play with, for all those fidgety people braids and twirling and if you can reach and pull, some definite sucking action- cant wait to see how often that comes up in keyword search terms lol.
I really adore the tendrils and the overall spikey shag look of this style, but one of my other favourite features is the back, underneath close to the neck is the short close cropped hair, done in such a way as to look very natural, sculpted and textured really well, me likey a lot.
This is Sasha, an evening dress by SySy Designs. Now this reminds me of another person who used to wear shrugs and cardigans over everything, now sometimes it worked and most times it didn’t, this is one of the good working times.
Where I used to work in Phils Place I had a very different clientelle, many of the women were professionals wanting business suits and what not, and I used to have to really explain the necessity of having some good evening wear, or they would come in looking for such things after at that time – this was 1.5 years ago – not finding anything with a mature sensible feel to it.
I definitely think Sasha is that kind of dress, its very pretty and depending on the accessories, shoes etc, could be killer sexy, but if not in the mood to let your freak flag fly , then this potentially covers that need. Very sweet and with the Alicia Heels in black from Adam n Eve you have a winning combination.
Now seeing as I like being a bit freaky at 3am, I went with the LionSkins SUZANA-pale 82 skin, this skin has stunning eye make up, but with a subtle lip colour and overall make up look. Just peeking out from beneath the fantastic bangs of the Nico hair from Maitreya , whether it be a work do , or a potential networking occasion, this look gives you the ability to settle in and feel your way around, then when you know it’s time to let the hair down, off with the lovely lace crop and dancing on tables till dawn is the next step.
Now this look was huge in the mid 80’s, the tuxedo gown look, a few girls at my formal went that route. The Elegance dress from Second Wave Apparel does actually have a collar part but I opted for the Pearls. The Jewelry set is the Tahition Pearls set from Primagine, beautiful pieces by Trixie Bumbo…I really adore the strand/choker combination with the knot of the pearls wrapped around a diamond brooch like disc, very effective work.
The Elegance dress is a mid length pleated satin combo, with a great big bow cinching it all in at the waist, my other favourite feature is its dipped back, allowing for the innocent batting of lashes and the accepting of a mans dinner coat to keep away the chill – seriously its a great way to acquire tux coats *grins*. The long gloves come with the dress and are a great addition to the look, also great for copying to your gloves folder when you need some like this.
With the Peta hairStyle from MMS still keeping the shoulders bare, I really like this semi pulled through loose bun look, but seriously what was with us, how did that become a trend, its not like we didnt pull through ponytails a billion times a day, and not one of us thought to stop pulling until the 90’s, that boggles my mind, and I have wanted to get that off my chest for many years lol.
Another fav feature is the loose strands across the top, again done with a alpha texture look, to make it appear that some stray wisps got loose, without using full prims to do it, bravo, hair creators lately are getting trickier and trickier.
I was having fun with my out there skins mood today, so with this look I went with the Blessed It’s My Party skin from Pulse. I would think at one time or another we have all done it, the crying at some event or party, and the mascara running blah blah , or well if you are old enough , before waterproof mascara and dancing in a crowded smoke filled club, you always ended up with panda eyes, so this make up works for both fun looks lol.
The shoes are from Hoorenbeek,and it is their first foray into womens shoes. They come with so many features, you get to choose bow on or off, strap on or off, what kind of texture you want, whether pantent, croc, zebra, leather, different heels than shoes and so on, it’s fun trying all the variations, so give the demos a whirl.
