You may be all set!  Then after you choose some jewelry, you can decide about a jacket.

Cougar is always so beautifully turned out.  I love that lippie too.

I bet that mink color would combine with any of your best colors to make lots of outfits - a pink wrap, and turquoise jacket, a plum sweater, colorful jewels...etc.  Play with lots of things milla.

Yes, turquoise, too.  The mink is a neutral so you could do anything.  Even corals.

It's funny - I would never have thought you used that many products.  It's a lot of trouble to look naturally beautiful, isn't it? :wink:

Cougar, you're not at all how I pictured you, but you are beautiful - you look alive and vital.  Love it!

... I always loved your pictures in MUA before joining TTB. I used to think: 'Who is this lovely woman?' :)

Makin, I use a ton of products!  But very sheerly.  My own face is a toy  :lol:

You're good at it, Cougar.  The look is very fresh and lovely.  We see a lovely woman, not a lot of products.

So, millia.  What have you found in your closet or in your minds eye that would look great with that dress and your coloring?  We are having a lot of fun accessorizing you in our imaginations.  What has the star of this thread come up with?   :D

I tried the dress with my turquoise pendant and I was not too sure…

I have been looking at a jewellery website that I have used before to buy a present for someone  and they do have beautiful necklaces, well at least I think they do,  but they are not cheap. Here’s a couple that I like:


http://www.piajewellery.com/product-Pia-Stick-Or-Twist-Necklace-2380/


http://www.piajewellery.com/product-Damson-Dame-Pendant-6319/


The loveliest one but very expensive! It may also be bit over the top, not sure…

http://www.piajewellery.com/product-PFM-Ruby-Rich-Necklace-7407/


This one may work as well (not sure)

http://www.piajewellery.com/product-Pomegranate-Pink-Necklace-7731/

I don’t need shoes or bag because I have bought them for the wedding.

As for the jewellery I looked in other shops but after seeing what they have in Pia, I don’t like any of them.
I have a birthday coming up so I might put one of them on the wish list.

Milla, I was out at a restaurant last night, and the decor was your mink color with touches of blue (sort of a lighter blue).   Not that you want to match a restaurant, but just wanted to tell you what I saw & that I thought of you!  It looked really nice together.

And Cougar - your make up is beautiful & you look lovely, but I am really loving your shiny hair and your eyebrows!

Out of the first three, I like the second one best.  It has an interesting shape for the neckline on your dress.  But honestly, the last one, with the pomegranate pink, would be a brighter touch for spring when you will be wearing the dress.  That would be my choice!
