To Accessorize Lightly
Classic, chic, elegant. It’s pure 1960s glamour. Rich black crepe de chine to ankle and wrist, this evening gown is ingeniously constructed to gently caress each curve of a woman’s body, giving me the perfect silhouette. So I like to think.
Above its sleek off-the-shoulder bodice, sheer silk rises to a sumptuous collar of marabou feathers encircling the neck. Another circlet of feathers floats at the base of each sleeve. Outrageously lavish and yet subtle.
It would be a sin to add a single thing to adorn it. I just scoop up my hair and wear a pair of diamond stud earrings. Choose a simple black evening bag that will disappear against the fabric, stilettos with finely pointed toes, and my favourite oriental scent.
It fits me like a glove-and so it should, since my own very special fairy godmother left it to me.
