Not Your Typical Pirate Captain

For those times you want to show a bit of leg and those saucy high button boots, the Avast series of dresses is piratey with a shot of steam. There are 3 dresses in the series, each named after a real female pirate. Bonny Ann Suite is in shades of beige and brown, Charlotte de Berry Suite in blue, and Mary Reed in red. Each dress has its own unique look with a nice variety of different clothing options.

 For raiding or romance, you can’t go wrong. These are fun, kicky outfits that you will find yourself wearing often.

Thanks to the beautiful Beq Janus for modeling the outfits and to PJ Trenton for his brilliant photography. View more of PJ’s work at http://www.flickr.com/photos/pj_trenton

Versatile Goodness

Velut Cantare, a gown for the opera, salon, or firing range.

 

You can almost see the floaty layers

Comes in 5 colors: steel, rose, brass, patina, and gray. Each dress has 6 pieces, which includes fingerless gloves.

You can almost feel the softness of the skirt as the chiffon layers swish around your legs, and the textured bodice sets this dress apart. This steampunky/Victorian dress works at formal functions and for everyday — at only 350 L$ each (fatpack 1200 L$), this is a steal.

Captain Red is wearing a Clocktopper hats. I promise to blog about these cute steampunk hats soon. 

Much thanks to the very talented Captain Red Llewellyn who modeled, photographed, AND suggested the tag line: Time for Fashion!
