And though you don’t believe that they do
They do come true
For did my dreams
Come true when I looked at you

~ “Overjoyed” by Stevie Wonder but performed by Esperanza Spalding


When I put on this dress, all I could think of was the song, “Overjoyed,” so I sought my favorite version, played by Esperanza Spalding at the White House (and yes, Stevie Wonder was there) and remembered how it feels to be filled with joy. Joy arrived when LeeZu Baxter released this dress—a combination of mesh and flexi, with gorgeous textures—brocades, satin, even an embellished ribbon across the bodice. She includes optional handless gloves (arm warmers?) with the dress. Once again, LeeZu shows us her design brilliance.


I am also overjoyed because Tricky Boucher will be releasing a set of gorgeous skins for his gacha at The Arcade, when it opens June 1. I am fortunate to be able to show you Skin 1, a “rare” skin that will be absolutely worth jamming the machine with linden for. With a generous sprinkling of freckles and his characteristic gorgeous nose and brows, the eyes pop on this skin with a deep liner. This is a skin I would use again and again.

My hair is one of Truth Hawks’ newest with windblown locks to match the movement of the flexi in my dress. I love what he has done with this one, employing mesh to show movement regardless of mesh’s static tendencies. My earrings are lovely pieces that I downsized (modifiable, thank you) from Amberly Boccaccio, available at this month’s Collabor88.

In the top shot, I show Siddean Munro’s hands, this time using the Belleza skin appliers (I think I used the pale Mya setting for these) and nails from Nicole Twigvald. Check out her store because she has tons of nails for these hands—perfect for girls like me who have a nail polish problem in SL and RL. (Just know when I go for a manicure in RL, I lovingly adore the huge wall of polishes.)


And maybe too, if you would believe
You too might be
Overjoyed, over loved, over me

One thought on “Overjoyed

  1. Those could be mitts, or they could be gloves that the wearer has tucked the hands up into the wrists, so that the wearer could keep the palm clean in messy situations like eating, drinking or smoking (nicotine stains). That was the reason for the buttons at the wrist on older evening gloves — not for decoration, but to provide a closeable opening. The more recent gloves, such as in the Eighties, were straight, usually no wrist.
