Again, a little swamped with the real world, I don’t want to postpone my blog since I’ve been holding these pics a few weeks, so I will keep it short and sweet. Well relatively short and sweet for a Cao on a mission. Luckily, the designer of these outfits’ work speaks for itself. Today I want to show some of the incredible gowns of Mami Jewell of Azul. From the first time I walked into her store I was enthralled with the incredible selections. She has gowns from the sublimely feminine and frilly, to my fave, the understated and elegant. I find elegance in the simplest of lines and have never left Mami’s store without finding something to my liking.
This first gown, “Shena,” created for supermodel Shena Neox, is a dream. I love the layers of the skirt and the way it moved about my legs as I walked. The bodice was fitted nicely and the scarving an elegant detail. I kept the jewelry and hair simple, a set from Kungler’s called “Amanra”, and Vanity Hair’s “sunset strip” to show the flexibility of this gown. This is a gown that can be dressed up for the more classy affair and played down for those romantic parties where walking along the beach might come into play.
The second gown is “Shannon” shown in such a rich bordeaux the color speaks for itself.The bodice is fitted and sleeveless but for the gorgeous detached scarving. Again, its these details that consistently set Azul apart in the gown market. There is an incredible ruffled flowering cascade in a harmonious color accenting the skirt of the gown drawing the eye of the beholder to the hour glass of the wearer’s shape. To accentuate I am wearing a necklace from La Gyo, earrings, and my hairs are from Madesigns. A dress so beautyful, that even barefoot, it comes across as formal. What can I say? Sometimes you can’t take the beach out of the girl..
And last, but certainly not least, is Azul’s “Esperance.” Esperance is a gown Mami Jewell created as part of the “Help Japan” campaign. It is so easy to let time create a void in our thought process where we forget those less fortunate then ourselves. Please don’t forget Japan, it is such a beautyful country of incredible people, people who often help country’s less fortunate themselves, so in their time of need, isn’t it nice to pay it back to them? 100% of the profits from the sale of this dress go to the Help Japan fund. So while you are buying yourself a present, you are buying one for someone else as well. The accessory to this dress is the Finesmith “Caoimhe, Angel Wings” necklace and the hair is again, Madesigns.
If you get a chance this weekend, swing into Azul, say “hello” to Mami Jewell, and pic out a nice present for yourself. You deserve it! <3 Limo:
