It was one of the first things I created that people seemed to like. No idea where it is today though.
    I had to laugh at this one...you know me too well. Sending you a PM.

    I wanted to share another pic for you, but I don't want to add too many (since I don't own them) but clicking her name will take you to her site. There is cool collar with white and lavender pearls. I sketched something very similar years and years ago and I called it "Flame", I don't know why I called it that LOL.

    OK, I like it even less with the feathers on the bottom. I don't mind sequins. I don't mind feathers. I just don't think this dress is a good design. It looks like something a 10 year old would design, not Chanel. It also overpowers the jewelry.

    I think I need a 10 year old designing for me...I absolutely love this dress. There is something almost magical about it.

    If I knew a 10 year old designed it, I would wear the heck out of it. But knowing it's a designer gown, I'm underwhelmed.

    I kind of love it, too, but I definitely think it needs a personality like TER's to pull it off. I love her.

    If I am being honest...I didn't pay much attention to the dress, though I do think she is very pretty in this gown. It was the jewelry I really like seeing pearls on the red carpet. I had someone mention the other day that pearls are matronly and not too popular. I had to ask what is your idea of a pearl and pearl jewelry? Then I went on to show all the advances in pearl culture and what designers are accomplishing using pearls.

    This thread prompted me to take a look at Chanel's website. There is a video of their haute couture show that is definitely worth watching. There are two formal gowns styled with pearl ropes with tassels. Ah, if only I had won the lottery....

    Feathers on most clothing gives me pause...back in the day when people sought my advise on such things I've always said keep these words in mind "Delicate Balance" lol
