My Campari Safari.

First, let me say that "Campari" is not an easy color to nail. Too red and you get cheap lipstick crimson, too pink and it's prom fuchsia fantasia. Also, finding a textile that will suggest the color of a liquid is nearly impossible.

That is, until you consider silk organza.
Probably my favorite fabric of all time, a silk that's weightlessly sheer, gauzy and romantic, but also vivid, crisp and full of attitude. Organza has snap. Organza has dash.

Campari-colored V neck silk organza party dress with wrap sash, full skirt and deep hem. For Clara's 30th. Bottoms up!

how can I crash the party, and steal the dress from the girl of the hour?! Okay...I would never do that, but this dress looks even more tasty than a campari! Nice job!
