Fourteen Months Together
Draco and I have been together for 14 month in-world, and it just about snuck up on us un-noticed. Not that we don't celebrate these little milestones, just that we have been so busy in RL that we didn't realize that the day had arrived. So it was date night, and I wanted a classy but not overly fussy gown. Enter ::TULI::, and the Powder Blue Gwen Gown I picked up at the Relay For Life Clothing Fair. It is magnificent. The colour is exquisite, the shimmer of the fabric so impressive, and the high collar and cape shoulder is so elegant. I felt great in this gown, and it can literally stand on it's own with very few accessories needed, all the 'bead' work on the waist is glitz enough. This dress is also well worth the reasonable price, as it includes a short cocktail length skirt as well as the classic long one.
I did decide to wear a simple muted cuff from Frangipani Designs, one of my favorite pieces, called the Black Pearl and Silver Cuff, it has a single black pearl on one of the bracelets, and I felt the tarnished metal went well with this gown without showing it up. I am also wearing my favorite accessory of all, my hunky chunky engagement ring from Caroline's Jewelry, a huge Princess Cut Diamond called the Gimcrack Ring. Shoes are the brilliant Slinky Stilettos from Maitreya in Silver, which are a great shoe to have when wearing some colour, since it is almost impossible to find an exact match, and it is classy and polished, without drawing too much attention to the feet.
I opted for a simple pony tail style for my hair, with some lose strands around the face, this Lynne 2 style from ETD is classy, without looking stuffy or too mature. This skin, another one from biancaF., is the Ivory Fata Base review copy I received, and is a lovely neutral make-up that can be dressed up or down, depending on your mood. I am very much taken with these Watery Eyes from BBBM, in the Mud pack, called Splatter, I love how light they are, very pretty. It wouldn't be an anniversary without a little love, so I am wearing my favorite Love Lashes, from [Detour] as well. A simple yet classic look for a night on the town. Happy Anniversary to us!
