not quite leger

The adjective "leger" in German means casual. In fashion, casual and somewhat sloppy. As in, laying around the house in your sweats. Certainly not what Herve Leger had in mind with this:



If you zoom in, there's a golden sheen to the dress which made me grab my shimmer CS from DCWV. I stamped some Inkadinkado mistletoe on it and then added some bling in a nod to the pink and orange on the rest of the dress.


Then I framed the stamped piece with black CS and heat embossed some beaded corners with gold in a nod to the studs running along all the panels of the dress. A WMS sentiment from Festive Foliage finished it off.


I'm also joining the gals at Time Out where #19 is about Embossing with the optional element of sparkle. Got both! Thanks for looking.

  7. I'm being 'leger' today; I've likely used this incorrectly sentence-wise, but 'style' wise I have it down to an art...jeans, tank-top+sweatshirt+hoodie, woolen socks,Sorel slippers (and yes, I'm indoors!). Outfitted for crafting and ready to roll. It's -32C outside, and as a result, our townhouse is feeling the cool as well. The furnace is getting a workout! Your card: STUNNING! Shimmery, shiny and all-around amazing! Those berries...oh my!
    Hugs~c
