~Simple elegance and femininity~

Fall in love all over again with this elegant ivory wedding gown.  Timeless femininity, the decadent and intricate bodice hugs the figure, down to the beautiful skirt.  This dress has to be seen in world to really appreciate the artisanal work of the fabric. The beading is exquisite and runs down the length of the dress so that when you move, the tulle overlay dances with the beaded underskirt.  My favourite bit about this dress is the back... it doesn't have one! I do love a sexy backless dress!  This dress is simple glamour at its best.

Romance is in the air as couples spend that one special night of romance. After wearing this dress, I can honestly say that it is a truly passionate, classically sexy gown. The Long flowing Red dress has a vintage feel, sweet cap sleeves and asymmetrical neckline, but  what I personally like best is the slit on the side of the dress tastefully revealing part of your leg and the hearts on the bottom of the dress that give it that extra added Valentine's Day touch. Not pictured here is a surprise cut out back -- Suddenly a Sweet tasteful dress has a bit of BAM!!.  Though this is technically a prim dress, don't let that mislead you as it will fit every part of your body like a mesh glove. Get ready for a lot of comments after wearing this lovely dress and let your heart beat with true beauty not only on Valentine's Day but all year long!  "Heartbeat" as well as other Valentine's Day New Releases are available at

~ Sexy sophistication ~

It has been a while since we last blogged anything here at Dashwood... Ok, ok.. so it has been AGES!!!  RL has been keeping us both busy but now we are back and raring to go!!!  Apart from the small issue of the flu *cough cough, sneeze, sneeze*.   

My first blog of the year is about a very sexy, chic and sophisticated  dress called "Kalixta", mhm you got it, named after yours truly!  Hence it's sexy, chic and sophistication... of course ;)  

This exquisite ivory gown combines an all lace, backless halter top which hugs your figure beautifully and a lovely satin mesh skirt.  The skirt comes in five sizes.  For those of you who want to slip into something a little different for your reception then this is the dress for you!  I even parked a taxi to take you at the bottom of this blog ;)
