Metallic snake. Billowy ethereal sheer chiffon prints, many of which managed to shine somehow. A body-con cobalt and royal blue mini dress with a rad wave of sequin running through it. Dangerous cut outs. Canary yellow. Voluminous layers that allowed quick sexy glimpses at sleek body suits. Yeah. I dug. Palm Beach is no fashion capital. So I'll take AND SUPPORT what I can get.
