The Case for Minimalism

The Case for Minimalism

In your clothes avoid too much gaudiness; do not value yourself upon an embroidered gown; and remember that a reasonable word, or an obliging look, will gain you more respect than all your fine trappings. ~ Alex Mosson

The Case for Minimalism

Ramses Meredith passed me a most beautiful outfit yesterday, one that made me sigh with happiness. It wasn’t a big ballgown or a sparkling dress. It was a simple silk blouse over capris, rendered all in mesh with a neutral color. The top had the sheen and softness of silk, that sort of rich fluidity that only silk can hold. The capris were luxe and sophisticated. I would want this in RL so getting it in SL was wonderful.

My skin is Aida Ewing’s offering for the Chic Birthday. In typical style, Aida offers a beautifully rendered skin with deep smoky eyes and soft neutral lips. This skin would be a wonderful base for a variety of makeups.

My eyes are Ikon Innovia’s newest offering. I had a long talk with him the other night about eyes and SL and stuff, and I have to say publicly that he taught me, 3 years ago, lots of things about avatars, graphics, etc. He worked very hard on understanding SL so he could make the eyes he makes, and he is now putting out a huge amount of new ones in beautiful colors so we can all be touched by his artistry. (He also made most of the shape that I now wear—yes, Ikon is responsible for this.) In my opinion, he set the new standard for deep rich beautiful eyes in SL. He taught me that glitter and gold don’t always make it all happen—a lot of it is plain old hard work.
