Blue World Style: Mako Magellan's Little Black Dress

While it might technically be a little dark purple dress depending on your lighting, today I decided to highlight one of Mako Magellan's latest releases, which is available from his women's shop in Caledonia. You might remember Magellan's Mister Darcy-esque visage from this post by Jasmine earlier this month.

Right now there are a lot of gowns and casual clothes for women, but there's still a lot of room for expansion in the party dress area. Admittedly Magellan's other new release, a very nicely modeled long riding coat, is something I would expect from him far more than this slinky one-shoulder dress worthy of a Bond girl. I would say that this dress is simpler than Magellan's other clothing releases, but don't mistake that as criticism. This kind of dress should be simple, especially in comparison to the heavy structure required of a gentleman's topcoat (which are some of Magellan's most breathtaking pieces, unfortunately only available for the boys).

I decided to go all the way with the Bond girl vibe, wearing it with a stockings and underwear set from GrabJo in Shade City, a pair of stilettos from Tirion Designs in Tharsis Estates, a choker from Sketchy Fever in Gaia, flowing blonde hair from Shade City, and an alluringly sweet-faced skin from Adam n Eve in Caledonia on top of my Moxxi shape from Port Town. If you'd prefer a less 'femme fatale' look, avoid the stockings and try Magellan's own high heeled shoes, which aren't quite as sharp and severe as the pair I'm wearing.

Do you have another way to wear this dress? Tell me how you would style it in the comments, and as always don't hesitate to email me with any fashion and style tips!
