More gowns of Desir

All that Glitters . . .When my friend Norma saw my photos of the Starline Gown; one of Vivien Emerald’s latest releases from Desir Haute Couture, she exclaimed, “O Kym, the stuff of my childhood dreams!” And, I would venture to guess that it may very well be the stuff of some “all-grown-up dreams” for many of us as well. Vivien continues to bring us the most exquisite designs. This gown really is worthy of some very close scrutiny. The complex swirls of the billowing silk are meticulously and symmetrically assembled to accentuate the pattern which is introduced as a theme on the corset top – a veritable visual symphony! You must experience the rhythmic flow of the gown to fully appreciate the complete design. While it is dramatically large, it moves with the gentle grace we have come to recognize as a characteristic of Desir gowns. I also found Belle Roussel’s recently released Tabula Rasa jewelry ensemble from Chop Zuey Couture Jewelry to be a delightful accent. I believe I would be wearing this gown for weeks . . . if I didn’t have a few more from Desir to unpack and shoot!

A Formal Affair in a Marshmellow World

Next on my fave list from DESIR  is the January Group gift – a Winter Gown in glistening snow white satin embellished with cascading snowflakes on the cowl cape. It seemed just the ensemble for a formal winter affair at Takalo, a simply amazing sim, with more beautiful snow than I have found anywhere in SL. Yula Finesmith’s new Papiyon Ensemble, in platinum, added a matching touch of jewelry elegance. And, my little feathered escorts seemed pleased with my choices!

One misty morning, early . . .

In the midst of the chill of the bleak mid-winter I find myself anticipating the coming of spring and all the blooms that accompany the reawakening of my mountains. I think Vivien must have had similar thoughts as she created two dazzling new gowns with warm floral motifs from Desir Haute Couture. The Rehana Wisteria, is simply fabulous. From the billowing lace underskirts, to the richly embroidered theme blooms and the warm color accents this gown whispers the news of coming warm breezes and morning garden freshness. I love the natural blues Vivien selected for this gown and was delighted to find a perfectly matching jewelry ensemble among the vivid colors of NES – Finesmith Jewelry’s very latest release.

O, my stars . . .

Desir’s other new floral theme gown – the Sayoka –  captures Vivien’s enchantment with the delicate sakura flower blooms which she recently discovered. While the lines of this  figure-focused gown are truly dramatic enough to warrant attention, the incredible embroidery on the sheer deep cut back panel will certainly draw that second and third admiring look. The lovely hair flower and a matching ring are part of the Sayoka offering. I’ve added tosy Xue’s Magical Circle Earrings from WTG Jewelry and the bold red Dawn bracelets from Finesmith Jewelry for my shoot under the stars at the magical Tempura sim.
