"Review" Paper Couture

What is it about Paper Couture that makes it so sought after? Is it the fact that they only release seasonally, much like RL designers? Is it the wonderfully hand drawn textures? Perhaps it's the unusual use of primwork...stationary prims mixed with movement? Or maybe it's all of the above. The most recent release of Paper Couture was January 1st. Here I will show you some of my favorites.

This first dress is called Shake It. The color is very nice, and you just have to see the movement of the skirt! It really is indescribable. The cute little feathered hat is included with the purchase. I paired it with the Grape Vine Earrings, which are sold separately.

Here we have Silver Mermaid. This gown is nice and sleek, with a gentle flair at the lower leg, hence the "mermaid" portion of the name. The sheer shrug comes in either a solid, or a fun polka dot version. This Jeweled Headband Updo is sold at Paper Couture, as well as the Geometric Crystal Chandelier Earrings and the Water Over Wine Ring.

This dress here is called the Black Floral SuitGown. A nicely fitted white jacket with black details gives way to a full, floral skirt. I thought the Long Beaded Bow Necklace complemented the dress wonderfully, and then topped off my look with The Aviator Glasses in Black, both of which you can find at Paper Couture.

My final look is the Tulle Wrapped Winter Gown. This magnificent gown is comprised of a sleek, strapless bodice which melts into a luxurious skirt crafted from fine satin and tulle. Again, this dress has a movement to it that just has to be seen! The Sparkling Spheres Set from Paper Couture is the crowning glory.

You should head on over and check out the other fabulous finds at Paper Couture. There's tons more outfits, jewelry, shoes, glasses, and other colors of that Jeweled Headband Updo. You can also find lots and lots more of designs from their past collections on their XStreetSL page. Happy Shopping!
