Beside a garden wall
When stars are bright
You are in my arms
The nightingale tells his fairy tale
of paradise where roses grew
There is a little fantasy that runs through SL, an old time movie fantasy about elegant nightclubs where people dance to old standards, where the women all wear magnificent gowns and the men are always tuxedo’d and the air is electric with intrigues and romance. I have yet to see a movie or read a book with such a theme but the whole thing “makes sense.” It has a cultural meaning that seems to reach out to everyone who comes into SL of a certain age or higher.
This dress would be ideal for such an evening, where “Stardust” would be on the playlist, along with many other standards. From IndigoBlue Dagostino, this elegant and sparkling gown would suit the Franks and Phats of SL. She has cleverly bypassed the tendency to make a monochromatic gown (a tendency I see so frequently in SL when creators want to easily just recolor) to provide a rhinestone-studded neck and waistline which slides over the back to a sexy dip with a sculpty draped piece (which is what makes this gown most unique). This dress comes with a fur coat and center gem, which I decided to forgo.
My skin is one of Tricky Boucher’s latest, a breathtaking beauty with the kind of sophisticated and elegant shading that does not compete with a dress like this but compliments, setting this beauty’s face aglow. My updo, with tendrils floating out as would be for an elegant lady (not shellacked and overdone), is from Truth Hawks, who includes hairbases with this set. My eyes are hazel beauties from Ikon Innovia, and my jewelry displays TJake Kearny’s skill with diamonds. I didn’t want to be dripping with diamonds—too much is simply… too much.
Though I dream in vain
In my heart it will remain
My stardust melody
The memory of love’s refrain
