It’s that time of the year when many boutiques release “Christmas dresses” and none other than Chantkare did the same. BUT….it’s not a design that screams out Christmas and I can wear it any other time without feeling like the I’m wearing something totally out of season. That’s what happens with most of the so called “Christmas” or “Holiday” dresses. You can ONLY wear it during that time of the year and once Christmas is over, it goes deeeeeeeeep inside my inventory, never to come out again. This one from Chantkare, however, is a dress I wouldn’t mind wearing in January or any time for that matter, and yet it looks Christmassy if you wore it now!
The top has a one shoulder design with a texture that uses red and green. Chritmassy….yes. But the colours are relatively subdued almost reminding me of country style British fabric for furniture or curtains. I like this a lot. It’s elegant for one thing but the red lace layer that shows from underneath adds the fun and makes it a bit sexy too.
The skirt is a lacy prim skirt but there is one bit on the left that uses a different kind of lace, like flower petals, in brighter red. This adds a nice accent to the skirt and I’m loving it! What’s more nice is that unlike many limited edition dresses, this outfit is sold for only 275L. I really think this is great value for the lindens you spend.
The skin I am wearing is a Suzana skin from Lion Skins. With all the colours they have for make ups, you can often find one that matches outfits. By the way, the link I have below is for Lion Skin’s new store location.
