She Was a Phantom of Delight

She was a Phantom of delight
When first she gleamed upon my sight;
A lovely Apparition, sent
To be a moment's ornament;
Her eyes as stars of Twilight fair;
Like Twilight's, too, her dusky hair;
But all things else about her drawn
From May-time and the cheerful Dawn;
A dancing Shape, an Image gay,
To haunt, to startle, and way-lay.
I saw her upon nearer view,
A Spirit, yet a Woman too!
Her household motions light and free,
And steps of virgin-liberty;
A countenance in which did meet
Sweet records, promises as sweet;
A Creature not too bright or good
For human nature's daily food;
For transient sorrows, simple wiles,
Praise, blame, love, kisses, tears, and smiles.
And now I see with eye serene
The very pulse of the machine;
A Being breathing thoughtful breath,
A Traveller between life and death;
The reason firm, the temperate will,
Endurance, foresight, strength, and skill;
A perfect Woman, nobly planned,
To warn, to comfort, and command;
And yet a Spirit still, and bright
With something of angelic light.
-Poetry by: William Wordsworth

Long Embellished Dress/Vanilla Sands
Black Blazer/Thrifted
Silver Hand Bag/ Mom
White Pumps/Janylyn Shoes
Heart Ring/My Personal Collection

When in doubt what to wear for a formal night party, a long black dress is the easiest solution. A black dress will never fail to give anyone the right amount of class and sophistication needed to own the night. It's a go-to outfit for every girl for it is easy to pull off and accessorize.
Silver or gold accessories are the best match to brighten up the dress. A pair of white pumps will also help balance everything. To create a more elaborate structure, throwing on a blazer is an instant choice. They say black is beautiful, I say too much black is drama! lol  I don't usually post an outfit shot, but when I do it's dramatic haha. Thumbs up to my best friend Shiela for taking the photos under my direction lol Thank you for reading this post. Good luck!

love lots,
Tin

  1. Wordsworth...he had a way with words for sure. Have you read Byron's 'She Walks in Beauty'. That is one beautiful poem as well!

    wonderful dress!

  3. I supposed it wasn't just a photo shoot but you actually attended a party. Kidding aside, wearing black is safest and you made it more elegant through your photos and poses.
