Today I dove into the vast expanses of my virtual closet…and resurfaced with this breathtaking dream of a dress in tow:) I am happy to show you the Marie Antoinette “Alice in Versailles” gown from Digit Darkes, along with the amazing Azucena jewelry set from Alienbear in soft antique gold.
This gown, a gift to me from a dear friend in the summer of 2008 and still one of my favourites, is loaded with ruffles, flexi prims, and pure romance:) and the huge, flowing skirt with its thick layers and stunning textures is of course an eye catcher in its own right. Digit Darkes has done a terrific job creating this unique vision of a French renaissance gown in strawberry and chocolate colours, and with the ruffles around the upper arms and chest (including the back), I feel like a princess. Despite the shoulderless appearance, two silver straps hug the shoulders, and a big diamond brooch adorns the top of the bodice. A uniquely shaped belt hugs the waist around the hips, dipping down in the front and back. And finally, look at the wonderful sleeves! Puffy and adorable like the skirt, they end in layered flexi prims which wave gently around the lower arms and wrists. I have never seen another dress quite like this one, and it is stunning from top to bottom:)
I knew that only the best and most precious jewelry would do for this fashion look, and so I put on the Azucena jewelry set, which despite having owned it for a few months actually marks my first time wearing it…and, of course, it is absolutely terrific. It is from Alienbear, after all:) Intricate details shimmer in gold encrusted with countless tiny diamonds, which sparkle delightfully…indeed, the prim work is so detailed that the tiara and the necklace each consist of two objects to be worn together, but you can wear each as a single object as well (which removes some of the detail but will save you valuable attachment points).
I hope you enjoyed today’s look into my closet as much as I enjoyed blogging it…now you must excuse me I have a date tonight at the Palace of Versailles *giggles:)
