Metallic accessories, high gloss paint, disco balls, chandeliers, diamonds…….shiny things make me happy! That is perhaps why I always gravitate to the silk and satin section of the fabric store. When choosing the fabric for this asymmetrical dress, I fell in love with this bright and bold feather motif sateen.
Fashion Tip :: Bright & shiny fabrics draw attention. Dark & dull fabrics minimize and hide.
Play with patterns, just be sure to mix large ones with small ones. Here the large feather motif works well with the pinstripe belt.
Layer a collared blouse under a dress or top to frame your face and add texture.
