Strawberry Jam

Strawberry Jam

The rule is, jam tomorrow and jam yesterday–but never jam today. ~ Lewis Carroll

Strawberry Jam

What I have on has absolutely nothing to do with strawberry jam but it’s on my mind because I bought a bunch of fresh strawberries at the farmer’s market that I will be making into jam. The summer day is perfect for this—last time I did this with no air conditioning in a 6’ X 8’ kitchen when it was 90 degrees out. Today it’s 79 and sunny with a breeze. I may put them on the windowsill to cool.

Before I turn this into a food blog, I better address the fashion at hand, which includes this new dress from AvaGardner Kungler. With subtle variations in color in the texture, Ava brings out a kind of lightness to the fabric as it’s laid upon the mesh. A lovely silhouette with versatility for accessorizing, it’s a great piece.

I accessorized with Art Deco jewelry from Tiffy Vella, who seems to do vintage pieces like this with a special zeal. She loves antique or retro and she has definitely put her knowledge of the look into these pieces, which are being offered at this month’s Genre. My shoes are a more contemporary look from BabyChampagne Sass, who is cranking out eclectic and fashionable footwear for various events and her own store.

I am showing the new skin from Mimi Coral, formerly one of the designers for Cupcakes, and now out on her own under Flounce. The skins show the same quality that Mimi and her former business partner Rosemary Galbraith used to have with Cupcakes, now with Mimi’s own singular spin. I love the makeup on this one and the great definition on the body. (And as I understand, the separation of the two designers was more about schedule conflicts than anything else, and knowing how hard this work is in SL, it’s amazing they kept things going as long as they did!) It was a smart business choice, and I think both ladies will do great work!

My updo is one of Mirja Mills’ newest. It comes with a daisy garland that I chose to make invisible. One of the charming parts of Mirja’s newest “transformation” hairs is a clever animation that occurs when you click to change, where your hands come up to do things in your hair and then poof, it’s done. I remember when Mirja was more kilts than hair and I am amazed by how she has expanded her business over the years. And now she’s doing incredible mesh jewelry as well!

Strawberry Jam

The strawberry grows underneath the nettle,
And wholesome berries thrive and ripen best
Neighbored by fruit of baser quality.

~ William Shakespeare
