No this is not about the political party–we won’t even go there. I have never been to an actual tea party but I was recently invited to one so I went. I was told to wear my best party frock.
I put on this cute dress from Miko Omegamu. Miko is one of the original perfectionists of SL. Every system piece is just so, every prim is in its place—always. And her textures are amazing. In this beautiful dress, we see a gorgeous floral print on a body-conscious dress. Miko has managed to run the crossover line from the top into the skirt. Lining things up this precisely on system pieces is very difficult work but Miko makes it look easy. Then she runs the ribbon from the other side under as if it’s seen through the fabric. The top worn underneath can be seen under the print in back as well and a darker red ribbon runs along the hem on the skirt. It’s in all these little details that the marks of a great designer can be seen.
The tea party was hosted by sachi Vixen, in honor of the release of her new skin Lauren. I showed the skin a couple days ago and I show here a version of the skin she gave out to tea party attendees and is now selling for a mere 150L for the next day or so at her sim. Go get it and then check out the other Lauren skins. I am wearing a new hair from Truth Hawks. He was smart enough to include optional bangs with this style, which makes it sweet.
If we are talking about skill, let’s talk about my great shoes as well. Fallingwater Cellardoor is the mother of all pumps in SL (imho). Before there were prim toes and stiletto heels, there was Shiny Things with Fallingwater’s shoes, patiently assembled from prim pieces. Now she has adopted sculpties in her work and she textures her shoes with the most evocative and perfectly rendered textures. Get close to these shoes and you see the stitching, the tiny scuffs from walking, the pretty little buckles. There is no reason to spend your money on anything less than these works of art.
