*Review* comme il faut & Le Salon

olivia dress (indigo)

Comme il fautis owned by Moire Georgette who was so generous to allow me to pick out review copies.  Now I could be wrong, but I think it use to be Bossa Nova. If you were a follower of Bossa Nova wear, Moire keeps that inventory alive at this new location with comme il faut and Le Salon.  Now that’s just awesome. Its nice to see a designer being true to her roots and keeping the “old” line active as so many have enjoyed it :)

I chose two dresses and a skin so far.  Le Salon specializes in unique hand-drawn skins.  Each skin is beautifully crafted.  Seeing the skins inperson is encouraged … my pics surely don’t capture her hard work!   Dulce skin – mocha (cake) was exactly what I wanted.  Its a soft creamy tone with hints of autum eyeshadow and a sheer lip.  It gives the allure of glam but with that “girl next door” look.
For the clothing, I chose two dresses.  First let’s chat about the Cafe Tortoni gown.  Its a full length dress that is backless.  The back is what makes this gown … or should I say the missing back.  The staps are pulled together with a small oval prim that comes in silver or gold.  Very tastefully done with the nearly open sides and full coverage square front. Gotta love elegance with a hint of sex appeal!

The second is the Olivia dress in indigo.  The white flower detailing over a rich royal blue color … looking close there is even cloth marks giving that added dimension.  Moire really goes over and beyond the basic shading.  A ton of cutesy features at work – the white prim bow in the front and the toole underskirt that playfully peeks out upon movement.  The dress is ideal for any garden party, wedding or shopping (as I wore it as I went off looking for accessories).

Thank you Moire for sharing.  I can’t wait for many more of your wonderful designs :)
