Warm and wonderful, but not especially exciting, brown can often be a very neglected colour. Most of us favour black over brown, and I am no different most of the time, but this dress from "First Impressions" makes brown sexy, warm, and delicious. When it was time for a "Beast in Brown" event at PIN UPS Night Club, I was happy to find another reason to wear this fabulous wrap dress, I love the crossover top, I love the little flexi prim knotted ties. I love that is had a nice layered look, a well finished trimmed hem, and an little lacy under-layer for modesty that still looks so sexy.
I adore this wig from "Curl Up And Dye", it is inspired by the hairstyle that the character of Frenchie wore in the Film 'Grease', but I think it goes beyond mere costume hair and works nicely as a stylish shorter look. Skin, Eyes, and Lashes from "Celestial Studios" are always my favorites, and I particularly love this make-up look in 'Purple, Orchid'. I think it is warm enough to work well with an Earth tone brown like this one.
I paired the dress up with some of my favorite tights from "Blaze", I love that they are opaque and seem to have so much depth of colour, as tights would look in the light if you wore them in RL. My 'Leather Vixens' from "Tesla", a most brilliant staple shoe, work perfectly with this dress. Paired with the tights, they really elongate the leg.
Although I normally favor silver tones accessories, gold just naturally goes with brown, and these amazing 'Dragon' Earrings from "Untone" really paired up nicely. Again, a favorite chunky bracelet comes in handy, this one the 'Circle Panic Bracelet' from "Swallowtail". A great big handbag from the amazingly talented 'Ingrid Ingersoll', complete with matching gold accents let me feel polished and ready to shop. Not like I need an excuse, but this time I have a great one! Time to head off to the 'Relay For Life' Clothing Fair to grab more goodies to blog on.
