Vintage Elegance With Glam Dreams


2014.4.1 - Glam Dreams_002

So I was in Opium Evolution‘s Gatsby Show that did three showings over two weekends and we had so many guests come on all three days!  It was such a fun show to watch and to walk in and being a vintage fashion fan, I really had a great time.  I thank all the guests who took the time out to come to watch the show.

I wore a total of four outfits and one of them was this lovely gown made by sandytpr Lysette of Glam Dreams called “Gatsby“.  It comes with the hair accessory, gloves and the fur shawl that I am wearing here.

This was the first show I walked since I came back and it made me realize one more time how much I loved modeling…but more so than that, how much I loved being part of shows together with my fellow friend models.  We would laugh, say silly jokes, make fun of each other, help out when somebody needs help…that is the best part of being in shows and I truly enjoy the time I spend.  Yes, even if it was 4am in the morning my time!

For that, I thank all my model friends for the fun they give me and for being there when I need help or just somebody to talk to. ❤

Classic Elegance & Beauty, “Dotia” by Tres Beau

Tres Beau has a beautiful new dress called “Dotia” which I fell in love with right away.  It is truly a dress that is elegant with a classic style while it has this modern appeal mixed in such an amazing way.

The soft chiffon skirt almost blends into the patterned top with an over-sized ribbon tied on the side, giving this dress the glam it deserves while the ribbon also creates a perfect balance with the wide-brimmed hat that comes with the dress.  I added very short wrist length gloves to the dress as I tend to like short gloves in real life too.  It just shows that short gloves are not just for casual looks as long as it is not heavy leather and instead, made of more delicate material.

For a classic styled dress like this one, I also tend to like wearing classic and traditional pearl strands.  This double stranded pearl necklace is from Virtual Impressions made from the legendary Akoya Pearls which are famed for its luster and shine as the highest of all cultured pearls.  Genuine Akoya Pearls, actually only exist in antique jewelry pieces, however, and can have almost unbelievable prices.  The necklace made my Virtual Impressions is made to give it that aged look which explains the creamy colour of the pearls used.

Inspired by the Academy Awards – Orage Creations, Royal Blue

The long awaited Academy Awards have been announced!  And in the current cinema environment where high-tech graphic technology such as CG, VFX and 3D are becoming the norm, a french silent film depicting a relationship of an older silent film star and a rising young actress, The Artist, has won The Best Picture Award!  The film also won awards for best director, best actor, best original score and costume design.  Wow, I’ll have to see this film!

Watching news of the Academy Award inspired me to create a Red Carpet look and a new gown that was released by Orage Creations with its Italian designer, Elettra Gausman, was the perfect gown I was looking for!

The deep midnight blue, which is one of my favorite colours, gave this gown an elegance that had no match but with added glam brought on by the over-sized ruffle decor that gave spice to an otherwise simple and classic design.

I matched this with a new set of jewelry just released this past weekend by Virtual Impressions, Majestic Jewelry in Diamonds on Platinum.  The rich floral motif of this jewelry set was more than what I was looking for to complete my Red Carpet look.

Now all I need is a handsome man to escort me down the aisle.  Any volunteers?

Classic Designs From The Golden Ages

A model friend of mine gave me a lead to an awesome store called “Sonatta Morales Atelier de Couture.” I have to admit, I had not known this store and I feel almost ashamed that I hadn’t as it was full of classic designs from the 1930’s to 1960’s. The days of Greta Garbo and Grace Kelly….the Golden Ages of Hollywood.

Sonatta Moreles, the designer behind all the stunning designs says her designs were influenced by her childhood when cinema was very important and she had watched all the movies with these elegant actresses who were not only elegant but had a flare of sexiness and glam.

Instead of my usual blog style where I pick up one outfit and show details, I decided to show three outfits to show the kind of outfits I am talking about. She also has lovely gowns so I will take them up gradually in my usual style.

The first one is called “Tulip.” I am sure the name comes from the tulip petal like prim piece that is attached to the waist, giving this outfit an interesting spin to an otherwise very simple black dress. It is accompanied by a matching hat, gloves and matching pair of shoes using the same texture. The elegance of this simple piece is almost beyond my ability to explain.

The next outfit is called “Bentley.” It also comes with matching hat, gloves and shoes using the same texture and has a jacket you can take off to reveal a sleeveless top with a bow tied at the neck and the back of this top is bare.

There was two versions of the same hat in the set. One with a classic looking hair and also one without hair. I am sure many of you have had the experience of having to find the right hair to wear with a hat, or having to edit hair prim by prim to hide all the prim pieces that stick out of the hat. With this, you won’t have to worry about any of that and still wear your favorite hair if you had one that matches.

The last outfit is called “Opium.” It is a sleek black dress with fur around the neck, covering the shoulders. This outfit comes with a small and elegant hat with net covering the entire face with bright orange butterflies attached as effective ornaments. This set comes with a hat including the net, a pair of black stockings with a tiny butterfly on one ankle, gloves and all the butterfly attachments to complete the look.

In case you want classic looking hair styeles this shop also has some hair that perfectly matches the styles of these times. In the next picture, I am wearing one of those hair that I found in her store. The outfit does not come with shoes but with this outfit, matching shoes will not be a problem as you can simply wear nice black pumps to complete the classic look.
