Swan Lake...

Thursday, June 16, 2011

So its that time again another Take Ten challenge..
I must say I loved this challenge! The lovely sponsors this time were Max C London and we chose this pleated swan pearl dress. When I first saw it I loved the navy colour but the nude dusky pink colour was calling out to all the Take Ten girls including me so that was the colour we opted for.Now when it first arrived I was nervous the colour with my gingery hair and pale skin tone would do nothing for me but I was pleasantly surprised at how lovely it was and how much it lended itself to other colours..greys, taupe's, pinks and mint green all went beautifully with it.

In the end this is how I styled it...
