Taryn was fuming, but of course, quietly and in a dignified manner. Her outward appearance was of bored insouciance as she stood in the corner, crystal champagne glass in hand, sipping casually from a '79 Moet & Chandon Dom Perignon Oenotheque Rose. She was wearing an ankle length gown, eggshell white, largely of silk, made by Dacinzi of Italy. It had a high slit rising along her left thigh, a tasteful amount of cleavage, and just above lay an enormous sapphire framed in gold and diamonds.
Of course, the pendant earrings dangling from her ears, just occasionally visible under her thickly layered blonde hair matched the necklace. She had a gold and diamond bracelet on her right wrist, and a matching watch on her left (by Rolex). She was wearing four inch heels purchased at Sachs, Fifth Avenue.
