This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.

Evening gowns.........................

I have really enjoyed looking at the beauty and the workmanship of some of these beautiful dresses. I do not covet them, I just love looking at them. I would like to see them, not own them in particular. It's not my lifestyle. I sure love that they are there though and that someone somewhere gets to enjoy them. The models are so skinny, I am not sure they would look so good on a normal size woman. Especially the height. I can't believe how homely some of the models are though and I am trying to show the more beautiful ones

I tend to like the neutral tones. The gold and silver, grey is nice with silver.

White and gold is royal, reminds me of Greece and Rome

White cream, or should I say creamy cream elegant

Black is always elegant and black with beads, well what could be better

Metalic.......this looks harsh. It has lovely lace but does not look comfortable. Then again, neither does the model

I thought I should show SOME colour. I love the green, although more simple gowns and the pink is very pretty too.

Well thats it for this evening. The next post I do on clothes will be about Eastern dress. I have seen some wonderful creations. Indian and Pakistani women, Muslim women. Awesome and intricate fashions that dwell more on beauty and enhancing the female eyes and hair and painting the body. Wonderful stuff. I am jealous and I do think that they are much misunderstood when it comes to fashion. We shall see

  1. I love to look at the beautiful dresses you put on your blog.

  2. These dresses are stunning! The "Greece" looking one, would be a beautiful wedding dress! I wonder how that one model didn't fall over? LOL! Hugs ;o)
