FINAL ~ EMBELLISHED ~ WATERCOLOR ~ SKETCHES ~ Feminine Ways - student project

 

I don't discriminate when it comes to fashion.  I studied YSL years ago and still love his collection. But honestly, I love it all!  I love a flowy dress, that to me screams femininity!I adore ruffles, bows and glitter and just about anything with an open back.  

These are a few of the dresses that get my creative juices flowing.

I love the way they turned out!!
