Lady Sings the Blues

What better place to showcase the classic elegance of this gorgeous gown than The Cotton Club, a replica of one of the most famous jazz clubs of all time, located in Virtual Harlem.

Here channeling my inner songbird, I have on this stunning Mayur gown by a new favorite of mine My Precious. This strapless tea length gown, starts with a blank canvas of creamy white, with intricate black scroll like pattern splayed across the front of the bodice. The full skirt has peek-a-boo crinoline, and striking black peacock feather overlay. The sweetheart neckline and black sash right above the waist are simple details that add to the charm of this beautiful gown. This gown was especially made for the Alexander McQueen benefit for the Save A Child charity, and 100% of the proceeds from the sale of this gown will go to the charity until 31st March. My Precious has some very elegant gowns and casual wear, also she gives reg group gifts and there is a special discount section at her store with special offers to group members.

Accenting this gown perfectly the Mayur Necklace and Earrings, by Alienbear was made for this dress and also for the charity, there is also a set of bracelets that goes with this as well ( not shown). The design starts with a royal pattern in dark metal, the black gemstone tear drops flare out across the neck much like that of a peacock trying to attract the attention of the peahens, and the black peacock feather centerpiece that takes from the design of the dress. This necklace comes in 2 parts and can be worn in 2 styles. The earrings also have 2 stlyes that come with the purchase, a set of long black peacock feathers and also a little more conservative set with black gemstone base. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Alienbear's jewerly and it is always a pleasure to wear her creations. I have gotten a pretty good collection of her things now and she has some of the best if not best jewelry in sl. She has designs that are reasonably priced and something to suit all taste and occasions. She is also very generous and there are many nice gifts and freebies to be had at her main shop.
These designs were made for The Love of McQueen fashion show that took place on 28th Feb, there were 38 designers total that took part and will offer these items will 100% of the proceeds going to the Save a Child charity that he supported. What better way to make the world a better place but shop? Get some gorgeous special items and also help a good cause. I love win-win situations.
