Sour by the minute but you’re sweeter by the hour

Sweet Sour

I have a friend in SL for whom this song fits so perfectly. She comes on kind of intense, like a hard rock song, but once you know her, she is really sweet. She is pure intensity—she cleans her house like a demon, creates her art with knife-edge perfection, tosses out quotes from Kierkegaard as if they are tootsie rolls. But she is also as sweet as can be—she loves pink, dresses up in little girl clothes, peppers her speech with ♥s, and frets over her plants. So this little beauty is in honor of her.

I start with this terrific mesh modernist-inspired dress by LeeZu Baxter. I love the sweep of stripe over the dress and folds, the rippling skirt line, the great graphic colors. It’s a simple mesh—I look forward to seeing more from LeeZu in the future. I pair it with Gospel Voom’s criminally chic boots, which I set on all sorts of colors to match the graphic color blocks of the dress.

My skin, from Gala Phoenix, has the same qualities of my friend—a bit intense but really soft. The eyebrows are about the only ones in SL I could call faint and pretty. (It’s so hard to do lighter brows—I know!) My jewelry is from Matchbook Monday, who provides this set with color changing on the metals, so while the “wood” beads remain the same, you can switch up the look on the metals for different outfits. I love Matchbook’s textures and her sense of geometry, but mostly I love the mix of metals and wood and earthy tones she uses.
