I really liked this dress by EClipse Design... It is just a really gorgeous detailed jacket with a simple white dress under it. It isn't long, and it isn't short. I just really like the way it looks and the fit. I have it paired with a vintage jewelry set from EarthStones and a violin I won from Zenith at the event. Zenith's gacha has home pieces (side tables and frames) as the commons, and a dress as rare-I suspect the dress is an Ultra Rare because I won the two other rares multiple times before I even got to the dress. The dress is a pale pink, simple, and a period piece. It says it is Nineteenth century, and I can totally see it in the cut and style of the dress. Let me just say I spent a TON of Linden$ trying to win this dress, and it is so worth every single one. And I think the surprise piece which I knew I would like, but didn't think I would get as much use out of it as I have, is the violin. It is one of the rares, and surprisingly it can go with any outfit. I have it paired with my outfit EClipse and let me tell you...well you can see it! It looks awesome.
I bought some shoes at the event by Essenz; the gems on the sandals are really big and stand out and are just awesome. And I think I have heard or read somewhere Russian gemstones are of a great quality and their emeralds are really popular....but I would have to double check. And before I go an a tangent about gems, Breathe has a dress at Shiny Shabby which reminds me of a classic tea dress. There are lots of color combinations and she even has some floral prints. There is also a dress by GizzA, which has lots of floral print options, but for some reason this dress just didn't do it for me. I like the cut but I think the patterns kind of throw me. I don't know if it is because it reminds me of upholstery fabric or if it is just the colors. And this surprises me, since I LOVE floral prints. I don't know...maybe it is the combination of the dress cut and the floral print. Maybe if the cut was different, or the print was different...
Overall, this event is a must. Just for the colors and patterns and I think you can see how much variety there is to Russian Culture. I hope the rest of your weekend is as relaxing as mine. Hugs and Smooches~
