We’ll show how to embed HTML5 Video API and explore the API, and discuss browser compatibility. Finally, we’ll go over video encoding possibilities.
Clubajax x DressHead Chiffon Fit and Flare Midi Dress – Dark Floral Print / Lightweight Line Chiffon
This fit and flare dress inspired by clubajax x www.dresshead.com is a perfect evening chiffon dress. However, unlike many evening dresses, this one will be easy to clean because the material is made of 100% polyester and is machine washable. The high neckline emphasizes the feminine curve of the dress owner’s neck, while the dropped armholes allow her to show off her arms. By featuring a midi length hemline, the dress aims to be a favorite of anyone with a modern wardrobe, particularly those with a favorite pair of heels to help offset the flattering cut of the hem. The chiffon dress doesn’t sacrifice comfort for beauty, because the hook and eye zip back closure and racer-cut back are designed to enhance the feel of the garment for the owner.
