Christmas isn’t Christmas without a Poinsettia.
If you’re in the market for a new dress for party going you should take a look at ORTA’s new Cassandra gown. With billowing skirt featuring a slight train to the back, Cassandra features a deep v neckline to showcase your assets, with bows ornamenting the shoulders. Simple but dramatic, you can also opt to remove the skirt for a sexy bodysuit that can be layered or worn alone if there’s a certain someone who’s been extra good to you this year. There are some beautiful light and dark colours to choose from and you’ll find matching clutches available in store too.
I accessorised with jewellery from Dark Mouse, opting for both short and long necklaces to add interest to the neckline. The je t’aime set features diamond cut garnets set in gold with heart-shaped pendants to accent, contrasted against the flirty tassel provided by the Victorian style necklace that rests further down the chest. I’m also wearing a hair corsage from AtomicBambi – while it’s not quite Poinsettia it’s a good imitation, and in this get up I’m sure none but the most dedicated horticulture enthusiast would be examining too closely (and seriously, if you meet this person at a dance then you know you need to find a new partner pronto).
The skin is new from Glam Affair, the fiercely beautiful Jadis. Shown here in the group gift makeup, you’ll notice a highlight of gold sweeping around the eyes, with bronzed cheeks and shiny, satin-smooth lips. If you want to try Jadis for a bargain price – the join up fee is a nominal L$30 – or like the makeup then make sure you check the group notices now as this won’t be around for long. It’s well worth the outlay as you get this makeup in five different skin tones each with two brow options, and of course you can stay in the group for Glam Affair updates and possible future gifts.
To finish, one of my favourite updos, the Esti style from Exile. This chic voluminous bun has just the right amount of teased strands flicking up from the trio of puffs to the back, a wispy fringe swept smooth across the forehead. I’m wearing with an Amacci tattoo hairbase which finishes perfectly providing a very natural hairline on the scalp.
