Skinned Knees

A cute short dress, a pair of boots, I could be any number of cute girls wandering the grid.

This cute dress, excellently done, was a 50L Friday deal from Keiko Morigi. With its gray and blue and red plaid, puffy sleeves, cleverly hemmed skirt (irregular hem on the prims AND pants—brilliant), and sweet neckline, this dress would serve any girl well.

Keiko has come out with a new line of skins that I quite like. I had not always been a fan of her work—the eyebrows were oddly shaped and the coloring was too extreme and artsy in a way that didn’t turn me on. I saw a lot of them on the feeds and frankly, I just didn’t get it. However in this new set, I like the eyebrows much more this time, the lined eyes with a little tiredness underneath, the sweet freckles and great blush and glow on the skin and the sweet, sensuous kissable lips. It’s very touching and very real. This is an artistic statement, this skin, but it’s wearable. (Being art doesn’t mean it can’t be pleasing to look at.)

Speaking of art, I just showed these boots last week, but let me give you another good look at ‘em. With their realistic textures and exquisitely rendered sculpties, these boots from Kookie Lemon are the real deal.
