Dear Fashion Friend:

Looking for something for St. Valentine’s Day? How about this lovely sequin embroidered dress? This dress’ highlights include spaghetti string straps and a v-neck. Its sequin embroidery exemplifies Aleya’s beautiful collection of floral designs!

Our model wears this dress beautifully. Her use of makeup provides a nice compliment to the attire. Her hairstyle is simple but stylish. It has that “the girl next door” look. What is her story? I can imagine her an art history major at the University of Auckland. Her favorite artist is Jean-Honore Fragonard. Perhaps she and her beloved are off to the Auckland’s Stardome Observatory and Planetarium. Afterward a quiet dinner at Auckland’s Viaduct Grill. She leaves a card on her beloved’s plate. The card’s quote comes from Thomas Merton: “Love is our true destiny. We do not find the meaning of life by ourselves alone – we find it with another.”

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