Today I am featuring the Mata Hari gown from The White Armory (TWA),  it’s one of my favorite and a vintage piece.  The designer behind The White Armory label is Bee Dumpling whose creations are the among the most romantic, princess-like and flowy. She connects well with the our desire to wear beautiful princess gowns and live out our fantasy of living in the past. Although most of her clothes are period pieces, she does feature quite a surprising array of styles.

Another wonderful thing about TWA is that most often Ms Dumpling’s provides different versions of this same dress in her package. Here’s the short version of the Mata-Hari gown.

The suede mesh boots are from Maitreya and are a group promotion item. They are exquisitely designed and come in rig and non rigged. An excellent purchase for anyone who wants to update their wardrobe with newness.

I have complimented the stylings with one of my “Hair Fair 2012”  favorite which is the Lelutka MAGDALEN Mesh combo hair that comes into option with ponytail extension. You can see the two options in the featured pictures above and below.

The Necklace set is from Virtual Impressions and is called *Francesca*. This is one of those sets I consider ” a keeper” simply because it can cross over from an elegant piece of jewelery to a ” antique ” piece. A must have group gift. Thank you Chrissy Ambrose for this lovely creation.

The skin is stunning – it’s from Lany Jun. The face make up is exquisitely soft and neutral.This is a good skin for modelling because it will allow you to add layers and layers of make up. As you can see in the pictures, it required no Photoshopping. The package comes with 3 tones and each with 3 options.
