I was feeling a little purple today. Perhaps it was the grape jelly on my peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Maybe it was the blueberries I ate with them. Not sure, but I had to have purple.
I started with this lovely dress from Mimikri Kit. I have secretly been a fan of Mimikri’s for a while, ever since a few items in one of her satellite stores took me to her main store, which had only a few more pieces. Now she has a completely full two story boutique with imaginative and fashion forward pieces covering the walls. The print has purple and blue themes and a beautiful Asian floral print entwined with black lace. Spectacular.
Mimikri’s system pieces are exact and very well done. Though I show a dress without prims, I will attest to her great prim building abilities and her ingenuity in texturing and rearranging prims. She has been working hard on creating clothing and pushing her boundaries—you can see it as you cam from the top floor, with her older content, down to the main floor. Mimikri clearly isn’t satisfied throwing a new texture on the same old skirt. She’s pushing into new territory and learning new skills with each piece. And it looks like she’s having a lot of fun doing it.
I topped the dress with a flirty Dorothy Hamill cut from *booN. Leave it to boo Nakamura to take an old hair cut and make it new with choppy ends and a slight purple tinge.
I added AnaLee Balut’s jewelry. She does some amazing jewelry—very couture and very fun. I love how her beads float around the neck and wrist.
Shoes from Melanie Zhao and Lissa Maertens finish the look. This is a new foray for Lissa, who clearly contributed the textures while Melanie contributed the building skills. The texture was a gorgeous silky purple chinoiserie.
I did miss being able to use Melanie’s resizer script on these shoes. While they were cute, I did need to manually adjust them a bit, and I am getting spoiled from all these great shoe makers’ huds.
