Today I’ve got a fun little style post for Amanda Foody’s upcoming book, Ace of Shades. I’ve put together three looks; two inspired by the main characters and the other inspired by my gang, the Doves.
Up first is Enne Salta, a dainty dancer thrust into the City of Sin. I chose an embellished tank and tulle skirt with neutral accessories in the purse and shoe department. I also picked out some stylish shades as well as a pop of color for the lips.
Next up is Levi Glaisyer. He’s a con man and Iron lord with a fiery personality. I picked a shirt and pants with pops of color and basic blacks for the accessories.
This last one is inpired by the Doves, one of the City of Sin’s most prominent gangs. Doves are terrifying assassins that no one wants to cross so I created an outfit with lots of leather, weapons, and a blood red lipstick to stand out.
About the Book
Ace of Shades
By: Amanda Foody
Series: The Shadow Game (Book One)
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Release Date: April 10, 2018
Genres: Young Adult, Fantasy, Romance
Welcome to the City of Sin, where casino families reign, gangs infest the streets…
and secrets hide in every shadow.
Enne Salta was raised as a proper young lady, and no lady would willingly visit New Reynes, the so-called City of Sin. But when her mother goes missing, Enne must leave her finishing school—and her reputation—behind to follow her mother’s trail to the city where no one survives uncorrupted.
Frightened and alone, her only lead is a name: Levi Glaisyer. Unfortunately, Levi is not the gentleman she expected—he’s a street lord and a con man. Levi is also only one payment away from cleaning up a rapidly unraveling investment scam, so he doesn’t have time to investigate a woman leading a dangerous double life. Enne’s offer of compensation, however, could be the solution to all his problems.
Their search for clues leads them through glamorous casinos, illicit cabarets and into the clutches of a ruthless mafia donna. As Enne unearths an impossible secret about her past, Levi’s enemies catch up to them, ensnaring him in a vicious execution game where the players always lose. To save him, Enne will need to surrender herself to the city…
And she’ll need to play.
