Mr. X and Jumo @ Feroush thru July 24

I told Mr. X I love the moment that we arrive at the castle.  As we make our way into the ballroom -- with music  wafting on the evening breeze and candles glowing --  I know we shall  dance from eight o'clock until four, without sitting down once!  Ok maybe, just once!   I will approach and retreat from you as we dance... teasing you in a succession of steps!   And you will be dazzled not only by my loves, but also by the spectacular ball gown created by Jumo called Olivia as an exclusive for Feroush.  This gown is an exclusive that you can pick up there until July 24.

I love the off the shoulder balloon  sleeves or capacious sleeves, justly named en gigot  of this gown that were inspired by gowns created in the Regency era (1811-1820). Mr. X loves the way the sleeves "balloon" out with rosettes and clasped all the way down to the wrist in the style of a gauntlet cuff.  At one time, historically, these en gigot sleeves were called "leg of mutton" but were and are  fabulous examples of timeless high fashion.

This gown, is replete with a bias cut low neckline,  high empire waistline with its bodice tight to the waist and transparent flounces of lace over a beautiful fine floral print neatly embroidered and finished with ribbons.  It is a pity, Mr. X that balls have slipped into something of a novelty in RL, but in SL there are so many places to enjoy a grand ball and waltzing, mask in hand.
