The soft caress
of a kiss so ardent.
Who will ever be able to express that?
~ Translated from “Ch’il bel sogno di Doretta” from La Rondine by Giacomo Puccini
“La Rondine” means “The Swallow” and is the name of an opera by Puccini. A friend said this look reminded him of that piece, so of course I investigated and found a beguiling Angela Gheorghiu singing the main part. That he put the idea of an opera to this gown makes complete sense. Mami Jewell has once again assembled a symphony of a dress, starting with a beautifully-textured mesh bodice with lace insets and then embellished with lace flexis and an artistic curved black piece. Wear the sculptural hat and waist piece or don’t. Eschew the flexis. You still have a gorgeous mesh gown.
I am wearing Sawsan Secretspy’s newest skin for Black Dot Event because it’s so elegant in makeup and facial features, it seemed a no-brainer for this beautiful look. My hair is Shylah Honey’s newest hair. Tommy Fairplay and Shylah Honey have decided to offer, on occasion, 2-for-1 hair so you get a rigged mesh hair like many other creators make AND you get another hair that includes a non-rigged mesh piece and flexis so you can choose to wear one or the other. I donned the flexi because the beautiful curls match the extravagance of Mami’s gown. Flexi hair is not for everyone but for those who like it, Damselfly’s is the best out there.
