Iron Maiden

When searching my inventory for this week's color, I did what I always do and tried searching every possible alternate name I could think of for the color...I searched gray, grey, smoke, pewter, mist and of course iror, and while I had some things, nothing came close to the swatch, so finally I tried silver, thinking what the heck and there it was...this gorgeous silver satin and silk dress that just begged to be used for this week's challenge.

At first I thought I was going to use pops of color to compliment the gown, but I found this lovely satin bolero from Nardcotix in black and so I went with black as my accent.  I wasnt sure of my choice until I walked out of my bedroom after dressing and my mother and brother both went...WOW!

After reassuring me they meant WOW in the "girl you are smoking hot" way and not the "girl you are a hot mess" way it was off to take pics and complete week 4.  What do you guys think? it?

Have I mentioned just how much I'm enjoying this challenge??  It's just occured to me that my border is pretty darn close to next week's I did this pic several days ago...I need to go play the lottery!

What I'm wearing:
Dress: Koko - Chiffon & Satin Dress in Silver
