The inticate work, paired with rich jewel-tones, was at times really spectacular.

Loved the jewel tones, although I wish the color of the dresses weren't matched to the shoes. I would have liked to see a bit more playful mis-matching in that regard...I guess the consistency of the pattern and color of the shoes help to re-attract attention back upwards, but I do like a nicely interesting heel every now and then. The loveliness of #4's shoe made the dullness of the others all the more apparent.
