Few of my Favorite Things

It is no secret that LeeZu Baxter is my favorite designer in sl so when she recently released the new NOiR Van Elisabeta Dress, I knew I had to have it. When I found out about the Haute Couture party we are sponsoring with the Kunstgalerie Sun March 7th at 3pm slt , I knew I had to have it right then!! It has become the current centerpiece of my coveted LeeZu collection, and if you have seen me at all the past week you have probably seen me out in it. I cannot wait to show it off at the party, it is being held at the the Kunstgalerie , a great modern art gallery, owned and directed by our own Rene. Come out and see some great fashions, great art by talented artist. If you or someone you know are interested in showing your work at the gallery please contact Rene Caerndow for details.

I love this dress so much I just had to blog it and thought that now would be a good time for me to share with you a few of my favorite things...

This dress is absolutely stunning, from the richly textured leather like folds on the front of the bodice that seems to catch the light perfectly, to the intricate prim flower bustle set against the delicate pattern that is featured on the back of the bodice, I love everything about this gown.

Notice the very elaborate design on the front of the bodice with folds galore accented by purple cat eyes and peek a boo panel of the lace design seen on the back. Sheer purple prim puffs on the bottom of the sleeves and the wing like ridges that adorn the shoulders are more examples of the incredible details and features of this breathtaking gown. Also the skirt that features lace insets on both sides that frame the silky draping that flows down the middle to the mermaid skirting at the bottom.

Topping off this incredible gown is the gorgeous headpiece that consist of flowers and twigs, that compliment the flowered bustle. This dress moves beautifully and is as much a joy to see as it is to wear.

Another favorite is this super classy and demure multi-strand Margaux Draped Pearl Necklace (black) by Muse. Not only does it have a cool name but it adds an air of sophistication and elegance to everything it is worn with. Seen here with the simple Claris Black Pearl Earrings in Silver that are sold separately.

The hair worn here also another fave of mine, new from Summer here in Happy Blond, this soft updo with side bun is just what is needed to add a touch of simple elegance to enhance this overall look and showcase the awesome headpiece. Also a great place to get wonderful casual wear.

And lastly another new favorite the recently released LAQ ~ Pearl Glow skin shown here in fair. One of the best skin makers in sl , offering gorgeous skins in skin tones to suit every taste. The soft alluring glow of the make ups and the impeccable shading on the body make this one of the best skins you can own. This skin that was especially designed for the "natural" blondes of sl features lighter brows and a very rare blonde hairbase, it even has a prim pony tail made to wear with the base. Each skin comes with reg and hairbase options and at $1990L for a pack of 10 it is a steal for skins of this caliber.

As generous as they all talented, all of these great designers, offer some great gifts too .. atm
