LeeZu , Courtisane and Lionskins – Shall we dance
So many thoughts come from a set as beautiful as this one, ballerina of course being the first.
The second to come to mind is a mix of rich rebellion, well for me anyway. Have you ever seen the movie Uptown Girls with Brittany Murphy?. As soon as I layed my eyes on the Riana Dress by LeeZu I thought of her, that movie…the preparation for her birthday party, everything flashed in my minds eye and it was instant love.
The tutu is made of the finest fluff, encrusted with pink polka dots, which are just the right size to be appealing, if they had been smaller or bigger, I do not think it would have had the same appeal. The choker reminded me of something I was prone to doing myself back when I used to actually go out clubbing and all that jazz, I have been known a time or ten to take a big piece of costume jewelry and throw it on a piece of velvet , seriously it is amazing what a hot glue gun and one earring can make lol.
This whole set is like that, the corset style top and matching panties, are in fact not really matching at all, or are they, see that is the love for this set, it really does look like someone with a penchant for bringing eclectic pieces together did just that.
The addition of the strips of ribbon coming off the tops of the socks is marvelous, the whole look presents itself as so high fashion mixed with street know how.Â The only wish I had would be that the layers of the top were in fact layers, being able to wear the pink corset without the cream top would be great, but it all works so well regardless, and does come on all layers for dressing with other things.
The boots I am wearing are from Courtisane, a collab effort of LeeZu creator LeeZu Baxter and Enkythings creator Enktan Gully. Courtisane has a mixed bag of items so to speak, that are created by either designer or both together.
These boots are the open toed Hors d’haleine boots, a short ankle boot, with a ruffle around the top that is fastened with a generous sized buckle.
The skin I am wearing is one of the Now on SALE Suzana skins by LionSkins, it is the Suzana Pale 85 make up, and at the moment all of the Suzana line are marked right down, before they are going to be archived elsewhere hopefully, fingers crossed on that one. The bodies on these skins are curvy and well featured, two of my favourite parts would be the dimples on the lower back, and the slightly rounded tummy, that is just too pretty.
The make up varies from subtle to vivacious, with a definite leaning towards the catwalk costume style, that always appears on the most famous of runways. The hair is Sasy by Here Comes Trouble , a lovely uppydo, specially crafted by Babyboo.
Do you ballgown frequently? if not don’t despair as there is the mini skirt version in this opulent creation. This is the Gingko tulip dress by LeeZu, a must have as far as black ballgowns go, the fabric is a smattering of slightly silvery tones through a rich black texture. The design features a somewhat graphic look, not so graphic that you can’t wear it in mixed company, but definitely a teasing effect that will have eyes following you.
You get all three skirt options in the set, the mini, the ballgown and the incredible tulip skirt, that moves like a bell as you walk, this is a lovely creation, that also comes in pastel floral colours that you will have a hard time choosing from.
The hair clip that fastens to the chin and is worn along your hair line is an added bonus, and just looks beautiful with whatever hairstyle you favour, I have gone with the Chel, the new style from ETD, lxChel is apparently the Goddess of the moon, so it was a perfect match with this gown that looks so much like the night sky.
The boots from Courtisane are the Allumeuse , open fronted boots with feathery detailing up each side, with strapes making their way up the leg, this style is hot, and with the short version of this dress, anything goes.
Lastly the Skin is again Suzana, do not forget that SALE because it will not last forever. The skin is Suzana pale 12, one of the more dramatic evening makeups, with silvery shadow and full silvery plum lips, this is definitely a favourite. Make sure you go and grab all the LionSkins demos you will really admire the creativity that has gone into the make ups of the Suzana and all of the Lionskins range.
