In the spring a livelier iris changes on the burnished dove;
In the spring a young man’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love.
~ Lord Alfred Tennyson
My Siberian irises are going to bloom one day soon, I hope. I see the abundance of leaves coming out of the ground. When they arrive, it’s as if Monet visited the side of my house. This dress from Spooky Mistwallow that she is featuring at Fashionart, with its lovely abstract flower print and elegant long shape, reminded me of those irises. Spooky does use mesh templates, but she does more than just throw a texture on. She understands the silhouette of the mesh and includes artistic touches such as flower at the shoulder and this long flexi translucent scarf with a gorgeous texture to turn the dress from simply cute to gorgeously sexy.
I spent a fair amount of time finding shoes to go with the dress and discovered Freya Olivieri’s lovely sandals for Slink feet that include a texture change HUD to manage the bow, inner and outer soles and the heel. It was a perfect match!
Inka Mexicola has lately been giving us tender, expressive skins that include beautifully shaped brows, eyes and lips. I love the coloring on this skin that is being sold at The Dressing Room Fusion (which means it’s a ridiculously low price). I was so delighted to match the orchids in Carina Larsen’s new up do with the eye make-up in the skin and the flowers on Spooky’s dress. That bright blue and lavender combo is gorgeous and reminds me of the beautiful irises soon to come.
Love is the flower of life, and blossoms unexpectedly and without law, and must be plucked where it is found, and enjoyed for the brief hour of its duration. ~ D H Lawrence
