Heart of Gold

Heart of Gold

Some ladies like to go out dancing looking like a million bucks—in this case, a million bucks worth of gold!

I donned this new dress from Agnes Finney, challenging myself to work with a color I would not always choose so I could see what I would come up with. The rich gold color of the dress belies Agnes’ skill at assembling dresses with panache for ladies who like to dress up. I include the hair piece that Agnes has made as well over a terrific beehive updo from Helyanwe Vindaloo.

This fantastic skin and accompanying shape are from Anzhela Karsin. I have shown them before but I am just in love with this look, which is not a black skin over a white shape or a darkened white skin, but a true black skin for a true African or African-American look. Skins like these are few and far between in SL, and I appreciate when I can find one.

My earrings and makeup are courtesy of two darlings from the Fashion Emergency group, who, when I asked about where to find gold shoes, proffered up gold accessories. So I wear some super fabulous gold accents on my lips from Mocksoup Graves and statement earrings in Citrine from Dita Tran. (And this is why I love me some Fashion Emergency.)
