Erato's Spirit

Dear Fashion Friend:

I love this party dress from www.aleyacollections.com for so many reasons. This elegant attire, made from silk, has these enchanting ruffles around the neckline. Its decorative bow adds a certain magic to this lovely piece of clothing. Its color is something between Bean Sand and Mocha.  For those who enjoy a taste boho, I would recommend this blue bead bracelet. For those who relish something with a bit of oomph, on the other hand, I would suggest this charm bracelet to go with this outfit. Either way, this dress would make a captivating addition to your spring wardrobe.

Our model wears this piece with a great deal of style. I love how she arranged her hair and adore her choice of makeup for this photo shoot. Most of all, I admire her charming demeanor. The romantic side of me wishes her name to be Erato. I looked up this name up in www.oxfordcitionaries.com, and they define it as “lovely.” "Erato," according to http://www.talesbeyondbelief.com/nymphs/erato-muse.htm, "was the Muse of lyric and love poetry."

As you know from my St. Valentine’s Day blog posts, I am a big fan of the Love Letter. How can one ever forget the romantic feelings of a Love Letter? Its tone is starry-eyed and dreamy; its sentiment is forever invaluable. “The frankest and freest product of the human mind and heart,” Mark Twain observed in his Autobiography, “is a love letter.”

I can see our model wear this dress for an evening out. Perhaps she and her beloved are celebrating a special anniversary. They meet at Detroit’s Cliff Bell’s for dinner. After a gentle hug, they kiss each other lovingly. When she sits down, she finds a card on her plate. Inside there is a Jim Storm quote, which captures Erato’s spirit. “I love you past the moon and miss you beyond the stars.”

I hope that your visit to www.aleyacollections.com was an enchanting one.

Sincerely,

Gabe xoxo
