I had the distinct pleasure of being featured in an article in Avenue Magazine as a “Fashion Icon.” I was lucky enough to meet Rusch and Jesika, the owners of the magazine, face-to-face when I attended the SLCC both years. They are an amazing couple—warm, kind and whip-smart. I was flattered they thought enough that they had me do an interview for their publication. Then I got to meet the amazing Annough Lykin, who did photographs of me. See her great blog here.
So it got me thinking about what I need to do sometimes to push myself a little harder. I have been taking on shadows and working around the hassles of that, and I share some images I did with you. I am not sure I will do this frequently; my blog isn’t really about my pretty photos—it’s about the beautiful fashions in SL and sharing them with my readers. But let me indulge my vanity today.
Of course, wearing a dress from Nicky Ree always makes me feel beautiful. I was discussing Nicky’s considerable talent with another designer the other night and we both agreed Nicky simply has some of the most beautiful texture work on the grid. We also agreed she pushes the ingenuity with prims in SL. She works within the restrictions of SL and blooms.
I adorn this look with earrings from Squinternet Larnia, of whom I don’t say a lot enough. I visited her store tonight and I was absolutely blown away by the quantity and quality of her content. (Yes, I know I need to blog more of her work.) Her jewelry is exquisite and quite different from lots that is available on the grid—much more “costume” and designer and dramatic than a lot, which I appreciate.
