Slowly Chained

I´ve been having a love/hate relationship with the song below. Even as I claimed to ¨hate¨ it, my feet would start to move whenever it was played as if they had a mind of their own.

The heady mix of contagious rhythms, coupled with strong, hot Latin-lover, passionate lyrics plus the collaboration of four artists: Puerto Ricans, Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee, Canadian, Justin Bieber and Panamanian Erika Ender who co-wrote the song along with Fonsi, has finally and  S  L  O  W – L  Y won me over as it has crossed over culturally  to the north, south, east and west.  I´ve had to surrender.

Fun little strapless, club dress with metal chains connecting the bustier to the mini skirt. The solid print is interrupted down the middle by a delicate flowered one. It comes with a colour change HUD.   The modernist painting has a metal frame giving it a slight 70’s flair and was the perfect background with its Tamayo like abstract forms.

The Princess Dark

In order to become whole it was a must that she embraced her dark side;

we all have one, they said.

Look at it in the eye and harness it to your will.

Never ignore it.

Style Info

I really enjoyed styling and wearing this medieval fantasy inspired gown.  Although there is a Pretty Princess version from the same brand,  I decided to style the dark one.

This is a strapless, ruffled, cropped top, paired with a royal full skirt that folds over itself on the riveted mid-sides.

The gown comes with a color and print change HUD that makes it quite versatile. This feature allowed me to match it, almost perfectly, to the head piece I´m wearing and which belongs to another maker and to another time.

The finishing touch comes in the form of a charm necklace and bracelet that reflect the event´s theme.

The build acts as a great photography prop. It is full perm and comes without poses.
