Simple Elegance

Zaara Kohime has done it again with her newest release: the Amala gown. This came out a week or two ago, and I immediately teleported over to Zaara's main store and snagged the crimson version, but I've been unable to get a post up until tonight. If you've not bought this yet, exactly what are you waiting for?

More behind the cut.

I'm not sure I have adequate words to describe how lovely this dress is. The texture is simply amazing. It might even be the best texture I've ever seen on a dress. The richness of the brocade silk and the delicate lace bodice work together to create the most stunningly elegant gown I've ever worn.

This dress is even stunning from the back. I love how the skirts floats around my legs. As with all Zaara's work, it moves beautifully. I paired it with some simple pearl earrings and a bracelet from Muse along with the Aiiyana hair from ETD for an understated elegant look. Really, this dress doesn't need very much in the way of accessories.

After I finished shooting the above photos, I couldn't bring myself to take the dress off yet, so I headed over to Emvee Cuba to stroll around and drink in the scenery. Of course, I had to snap a few pics there as well. Oh, and the top comes in two versions: Sheer and not so sheer. I'm quite thankful to have the option, really.

Zaara's Amala gown would be a lovely addition to any wardrobe and perfect for a ton of different occasions. In fact, there is a certain holiday coming up next month, and this might just be what I wear to celebrate it.
