As mentioned in Part 1, I had the wonderful opportunity to host a Simply You magazine photo shoot at the premises of European Antiques. This seasons evening wear is presented in an alluring combination of plunging necklines, glistening sequins and luxurious lace. Coupled with that is a few of my favourite antique treasures from my current stock holding.
Part 2 continues and is no less inspiring with stunning model Teresa Moore.
