Dress pictures

I was right to take a walk in the garden on Thursday: it has been raining all day today...


Emilie is there. We had a lovely time yesterday, doing some shopping, having a pizza and chatting.

Today, she took that picture of me, in the dress:

I've discovered Altered Couture a few weeks ago. A lot of inspiration in that publication!!!

Among others, there were some customizations with skulls. I knew Emilie would love it. Here is the result: Stretch jean (black), one panel cut on the wrong side and decorated with 3D Paint. One pocket with a hint of bling-bling. I'd put it on her bed for her to discover. Apparently, it was love at first sight.

Note the shoes! Since she is living in Paris, Emilie is discovering the woman hiding in her :-) She bought those shoes yesterday, and I offered her another pair, also with high heels.
I hope you enjoy your weekend!

The dress fits fine. I wonder what would happen if you would wear brighter colours.
Your daughters skirt is great. It fits her perfectly. And it looks great with the shoes.
I also discovered this magazine (on the internet), but I do not know where to buy a issue to see what is inside.

You are so clever to make up all those clothes. Thank-you for the link to that fantastic publication, I've book marked it and must go back and explore the challenges etc a bit more.

First of all, you are beautiful my dear in your new dress and you did such a nice job of the finishing. It's a nice style for you -- I'm afraid to show skin but I know I need to get over that.

Emilie's skirt looks so cool with her shoes...the outfit looks really nice together. She and my niece would both like the skull skirt. It was a great idea to flip the fabric on one side! Bravo ~
