“If you judge people, you have no time to love them.” ~ Sister Teresa
I tripped across a little movement of people in SL who are posting photos to “Stand4Love.” Based on a campaign started by RicoRacer Flux and Editorial Clarity, it’s an attempt to bring awareness to people that love should know no boundaries. I fully support this statement. In our house, we teach the junior member that love between people is always positive, regardless of the nature of that love or the people who love each other. Love knits together our society and makes us human and happy.
Of course, one kind of love we approve of is red hot love, so I wanted to dress the part. With a sexy side-slit dress from Ivy Burner, I provide a palette for the accessories. And let me just say here that Ivy is my go-to for sexy, red hot, drop dead sexy with class. I love her textures, how she works with prims—flexi, sculpty, mesh—to create dresses that are sexy without being trashy. Her seams are clean, her textures imaginative and proportioned, and her taste, spot on.
My urgency in this outfit was to show you two great sets of pieces that seemed incongruent. First are these fantastic boots from Paul Lapointe that I strapped on. With their stiletto heels and sensuously curved silhouette, these are sex on a stick with their beautifully rendered leather and color change for the accents.
Then check out this great new jewelry from AvaGardner Kungler is hitting the store and I love how she linked together these gems and even showed the weight of the links in how she looped them from gem to gem. In my opinion, Ava is one of the best jewelers in SL, not just for her technical ability with prims and textures but also for her vision.
My skin is one of Atomic Skytower’s newest with beautifully made up eyes and sensuous lips. Now this is something I don’t normally point out, but the blush on this face is really well done—the highlighting shows a lovely glow most women would pay good money to have in real life.
My updo comes courtesy of Truth Hawks, who keeps bringing them out, week after week, for the edification of us dames who have a prayer for hair. Despite his silly nicknames for the bloggers, (“XX? Really, Truth?”), ya gotta love the guy.
