Going for baroque...

When attending an event as lushly and 'Baroque-ly' titled as 'A Velvet Affair', one doesn't hold back on opulence. You go for broke.
I was Senora Consuela Equestrienne, going to the fiesta...
Rich colours, wristbands and strands and strands and strands of pearls... velvet jewels on tips and top, all I'm missing is a riding crop!
[oh how sweet. she rhymes too]

Hey hon... size 4 or 5 US? I don't know what size system you go by. This dress is a US size 6-8.
You could take it in at the side seams. Dress does have a belt to tighten it. Email me your measurements, that will give me a better idea.

I love pearls, I love the simple, classic, elegant look of them as a single strand on others. On me, I like them bunched! I don't do simple!
No, I don't dance Kathak anymore, I'm very rusty, now I dance Flamenco...which is very similar to Kathak! hand movements, posture, etc.
...I'm just a big poseur anyway!!
(back in my younger days, way before you were born :P, I used to model)... x
