Mr. X & Chiffon, Almond & Ghee & New Gift Skin October 4 Seasons

If there was ever a cake to have a rag to riches story, a Marilyn Monroe type Hollywood discovery it is the chiffon cake, a light cake with a delicate crumb that resembles an angel food cake but is richer. Created in 1927 by Harry Baker, a "hobby chef" this cake whose secret ingredients he kept to himself for decades rose faster than the stardom of Lana Turner. After trying 400 recipes to improve on the angel cake, he used vegetable oil rather than butter or shortening in his recipe and the chiffon cake was born.  It  was sought by the high rollers of Hollywood and beyond.
Mr. X and I may not be high rollers but in this new chiffon colored gown by ghee called Ophelia, I feel like a starlet.  In addition to chiffon, Ophelia comes in dove, almond and moss.  Matching fringe top or strappy heels are sold separately and are a must have.
I feel light and airy in Ophelia "chiffon" with it's sexy bodice and lace trimmed bra top. In this outfit  --- you just dress the part -- think Lana and make a grand entrance, you will be noticed.
Another find in chiffon is this classic A-line dress in a muted floral pattern. I love the delicate side seams that add a touch of sophistication -- this is an iconic look that has been turning heads for years.

Speaking of turning heads, October 4 Season Skins has just released the June Skin  Gift called Summer Beach.   I love the soft golden summer glow of this lightly freckled skin (Mr. X loves those) with its soft sunkissed lips and evocative eyes.  So if you are not a member... this is definitely the month to become one. The skin comes loaded with appropriate appliers.

There is an evocative celtic inspired  low belly tattoo and a long tattoo down the back... that is pure summer fun...Mr. X I can hear the tropics calling.....
