Me and My Shadow

It started with 5th & Oxford dropping both their yet to be released skins and cocktail dresses on Samara and myself. Then, inspired by Achariya and Mourna’s joint posts, Sam and I agreed to do likewise.

The 5th&Oxford Summer Cocktail skins have the Audrey base with a new set of fresh, vibrant makeups. We both chose to wear the medium skin tone…Sam went for the simple, elegant make up no.5 with its ‘natural’ eyes and classic red lips. I chose the flashier no.6 with its blue eyes and rose lips. All the make ups are suitable for that cocktail party look.

The Cocktail Dresses that will be released at the same time as the skins are the typical quality and design we have come to expect of this creative pair. The dress is a retro styled system dress with prim details. The plunging neckline keeps this dress sassy, the vibrant colours match the make ups wonderfully and the design and textures are perfect. The prim sleeves finish the top beautifully and the wide prim belt completes the dress. Sam is wearing the dress in ‘Blue Lagoon’ as being a redhead it suited her and I wore ‘Cosmo’ as the red suited my colouring. There are 6 colours in total to chose from, one to suit everybody.

Next came the shoes…Sam dug into her inventory and after several tries decided upon the ETD peeps slingbacks in blue. I, on the other hand, knew exactly which shoes would complement the dress…AC Sasy Chic in Passion. Both sets of shoes complemented the classical, elegant look.

Sam suggested the title and no shadows were harmed in the making of this blog.
