ALTER Fashion Premiers the Meg Drape Mini Dress at Swank Events April 2017 - A very special piece designed with quality, fit and passion.

While the mini may have existed as long as civilization, it was not until 
the late 20th century that it evoked powerful political & cultural implications. 

The mini is such a cultural phenomena, dating back to the early Egyptians. 

During the mid 19th century, women in Europe and America 
were generally considered to be the weaker sex. 

Engaging in politics, business, and sports was generally taboo for women. 
Tight corsets with long, restrictive skirts generally reflected these beliefs.

With the sexual revolution of the 1960s, the Mini became 
the expression and symbol of Feminism.  

Today Minis are more popular than ever. 

They are sexy and look amazing when styled correctly - 
flattering your body’s shapely figure. 

This Alter Meg Drape Mini Dress is a great example. It is a very 
special piece designed with quality, fit and passion.

The strapless sweetheart neckline of its flirty bodice is 
embellished with a beautiful embroidered inlay.

This dress hugs your body close, nipping in  
 high at the waist with a gold bow belt, creating 
an hourglass silhouette. 

I especially like the fact that Ainoha Alter has accessorized this 
dress with exquisitely detailed & winged steampunk gold bracelet watch,
pumps and bento hand rings.

I also love how this dress drapes open at the hips with such finesse and 
flair, revealing a daring peek-a-boo bodycon skirt.

Shimmering gold banding and underlining accentuates the soft, 
fluid drape of this lustrous red satin Alter Meg Draped mini dress. 

So ladies, go out and make a fashion statement in this 
Alter Meg Drape Mini Dress.

You will look great and feel confident wearing it.

VIPs Creations Premiers the Artemis White Angel Dress with Wings at Swank Events April 2017 - A Stunning Piece of Heavenly Delight

An angel, according to most religions is a spiritual entity
who is superior in both intellect and power to humans.

Of all the angel wardrobes I had to choose from to blog,
I selected this Vips Creations Artemis White Angel with Wings. 

It shines with such grace, glamor and sophistication
befitting to my vision of an angel.

Angels can be described as both benevolent and dreadful -
endowed with wisdom & knowledge of earthly events.

Angels however are not infallible for they get into squabbles,
yet serve as intermediaries between
Heaven and Earth, or as guardian spirits.

From my perspective, an Angel as a mortal being is
someone who shines both inside and out. 

For me, an angel is a person who celebrates themselves for
who they are and also celebrates with others the gift of life.

This blog is dedicated to all the Angels who fit that definition.

This blog may not be for everyone – but, if you consider yourself
or want to consider yourself in that perspective
then you have come to the right place!

For me, an angel is defined by humility, kindness, love and
beauty both inside and out.

Angels are compassionate and empathic in everything they do, making
everyday a pledge to do the right thing for all they come in contact with.  

Simply said, an angel means being there for others in need
or just telling them you understand.

Most importantly, being an angel is all about helping others,
regardless of what you get in return.

Look at what the Easter Bunny sent to SWANK Events April from LUXE Paris

It's April and you know what that means. 

That's right - it's Easter Bunny Month and time to feature 
awesome outfits incorporating Easter Bunny Egg colors 
as a part of a fashion statement. 

I'm very meticulous about my blog writing (and probably to 
my detriment at times). I do spend the needed time writing my 
reviews because structure, content and flow are all very important to me. 

I will toil to take the time to come up with an interesting fashion article. 
That’s because I want people to enjoy the experience of reading my posts.

Having said that, Easter is by far one of my most favorite 
times of the year for me. Personally, it has special spiritual 
meaning. It is also a very festive and colorful time to 
celebrate this joyous event.

Well, it's quite clear that plenty of serious thought went 
into this outfit from LUXE Paris to celebrate Easter with 
these special Easter Bunny Egg inspired colored mini dresses in
Robin’s Egg Blue, Violet and Spearmint. 

The cute twist to these gorgeous dresses are their leather
and ring bondage harness accent clichés. 

These adorable Minis remind me of dressing up like a Bondage Bunny 
with bunny ears, rope and a whip as a erotically charged 
and romantic way of heightening my sex life. 

Well, I better not go there with any late night confessions, wanton 
decadence or sex beyond your wildest imagination type of discussions. 

Perhaps I will muster up enough courage to share my erotic
thoughts in a future blog and leave it at that.  LOL!

HJ Premiers the City of Angels Laced Collar with Matching Earrings Set at Swank Events April 2017 - An Exquisite Combination

This lovely HJ City of Angels Laced Collar is reminiscent of 
an antique Victorian or Edwardian era bib necklace. 

The pattern is quite intricate with a different 
finely-beaded motif that I have not seen before. 

It has a high neck with intricate scalloped lacing which  
wraps all the way around the back, giving it a 
feel of warmth and comfort.

This laced collar also comes accessorized with
gorgeous matching pendant earrings.

I paired these both with the sky colored Alter Monica Strappy Corset Dress, 
giving the dress a stunning final touch.

If you want to dress into something street chic then layer it with 
something special. You can wear this lace collar with a plain top or blouse. 

It has very interesting needle crochet lacing with 
beautiful sky beaded corset boning. 

It is made as one continuous circle with no openings, 
arrayed around the neck asymmetrically by design. 

I love the mesh design for I find that as my shoulders and 
collarbones move, so does the corset, 
rather than encroach upon the neckline of the dress.

Its petit leaf lacing design lends it a three-dimensional look, 
finished with beautiful laced scalloping along its perimeter.

It is an exquisite, excellent and unique piece of lacework - I love it!

CW Creations Raises the Glamour Quotient at Swank Events March Premiering the Emma Long Sleeve Gown

I was asked the other day the proverbial question if 
women dress for other women or do they dress for men.

Well, true that is always nice to be admired. There are 

times when we do dress for public approbation, 
and even at times for male appreciation. 

However, being a diva in RL who wears fashionable clothing 
and hangs out with a lot of other women (who also wear chic clothing), 
I believe that I can say with some degree of certainty that most 
of us don’t wear clothes for men – we wear clothes for ourselves. 

Contrary to the perception prompted by the media & pop culture, 
I would even go so far to say that most things we do
regarding our personal appearance are for us. 

Not everything a woman does to look good is to "get a man" or "wow a man."

This CW Emma Long Sleeve Gown is the embodiment of that thought. 

This stunning gown has a very feminine column silhouette 
with the look of luxurious fabric. It is a look that 
certainly captivated my heart and mind when I first saw it displayed.

One of the truly great gifts of fashion is that it allows us to enjoy ourselves, 
to try out different looks and simply just have great fun in the process. 

That is what makes this CW Emma Long Sleeve Gown so special. 
I feel so great wearing it. It is a spectacular piece to say the least.

Hence, the bottom line is that fashion is really all about enjoying the artful 
styling of a garment and feeling comfortable and confident wearing it. 

Why would we spend our lindens on something we don't like but 
think someone else will? That makes no sense whatsoever.

This exquisite mermaid style gown with its round neckline, 
full length sleeves, scalloped hem and dropped-back raises 
the glamour quotient with its detailed back jeweled embellishments 
which superbly makes this gown both distinctive & elegant.

This stunning CW Emma Long Sleeve Gown can be worn for every special occasion - 
for a glittering entrance to a couture black tie event, 
or for a classic evening out ballroom dancing.

So, rather than getting yourself into boring generalizations 
about what men want from women, do something nice for 
yourself and get this CW Emma Long Sleeve Gown.
