Exquisite Softness

Dear Fashion Friend:

Two words come to mind: EXQUISITE and SOFT. It’s exquisite because the model’s demeanor and elegance come through and through! I love how she arranged hair. Her choice of accessories and makeup are in sync with the gown. It’s perfect harmony: like a Mozart concerto! The dress is terrific for any formal event like a wedding or a New Year’s Ball. It’s soft because the designer chose satin for the fabric.  The formal eveningwear is a lovely addition to the fashion collection of

The floral design on the front and back of the dress is artistic. Notice, dear Fashion Friend, the intricate design of the rose petals. The white rose has a significance all its own. A quote from Reader’s Digest (August 2018) regarding white roses: “Purity, Innocence, Sympathy, Spirituality. Early tradition used white roses as a symbol for true love, an association which would later become the hallmark of the red rose. Also known as the bridal rose, the white rose is a traditional wedding flower.”

This dress is a work of art!

I hope that your visit to is a lovely one!
