Countdown has been releasing new outfits at an amazing speed ever since the store opened in September of last year.  And this is one of the new releases that was released right before Christmas.

It is a gorgeous wedding gown called Midori Gown that comes with a very unique but lovely head piece with a veil that looks more like a glowing stream of light.

The outfit set comes with a pair of white pumps that is also sold separately in the store as Countdown, Gogo Pumps in white.

Tres Beau, "Tiffany" – A Dress Made Of Roses

June had always been the month for weddings but autumn is another good season for those who can’t wait till June and it also means you can spend the coming Christmas as a wed couple. 🙂 So I thought I might show a most romantic dress that was just released from Tres Beau Designs and Weddings.

Tres Beau – “Tiffany”

Tiffany” by Tres Beau is one of the most romantic, sweet and versatile outfits in the current SL fashion. It is not really sold as a wedding gown and it comes with a knee length skirt, a midi length skirt and a long train all made with lots of what looks like flower petals. You have the choice of wearing the skirts with a big pink rose in the back or without and the combination of different skirts make this a dress one that can be worn as a lovely cocktail dress as well as a wedding gown for brides who want something romantic but different from the typical wedding gowns in the market.

Worn with a short skirt

What I loved the most about using this dress for weddings is that the colour is not white. It is “almost” white but has a delicate and subtle pink hue to the shade as you can see in the pics.

Worn with the long skirt

The prim parts are all resizeable including the big pink rose head piece and here, I made it slightly smaller to keep a better balance with the hair I wore. But the impact of this rose is still quite significant and by changing the size as well as the position of the rose, you can arrange it to develop your own style. For example, you can even wear it horizontally positioned over a more avant garde hair style if you prefer a sharper and different look.

Worn with a train

Kimmera Madison, the designer of Tres Beau, is known as one of the most well established designers in SL, having been designing wonderful creations including many stunning wedding gowns since 2004 and the quality of her dresses as well as the attention to details never cease to impress me.

From The Wedding Expo

I was one of the models for a wedding fashion show in the “2009 *Something Blue*…Love & Marriage Expo” which was a wedding expo that was running from July 31 through August 8.

One of the outfits I modeled for was Sparkle Skye’s “Fairy Tale” in white/gold.

As always, Sparkle’s wedding gowns are so lovely and gorgeous. A killer sized skirt is included for grand weddings like those in cathedrals, but smaller skirts are also included so that the gowns can be worn after the wedding. “Fairy Tale” also comes in a all white colour but those who want a gown that is a little different, this white/gold version will be a great choice.

Here, I am not wearing the sparkles she has to take pics but sparkles are also included in the set which will add that sparkly touch to the skirt.

For jewelry, I used the Gradient Set from Flirt. I used these for the show also but what is so fantastic about these jewelry is that the sets are so well thought for the convenience of customers. The necklaces have chest attached versions as well as spine attached versions so it the attachment point conflicts with something you need to attach with your outfit, you can chose the one with a non-conflicting attachment point.

All jewelry pieces are copyable too when most jewelry stores sell their items no copy and transferable. OK I do admit that sometimes jewelry are given to others as gifts. I have always wondered, however, what percentage of jewelry are actually sold as gifts. Maybe it’s just me but I hardly get jewelry given to me and most of what I have are purchased for personal use. Then, copyable versions are so much better! I will even go so far as to say, I prefer stores that sell copyable jewelry. Kudos to Skinkie Winkler for this wise choice!!
