Slow down, dilettante
So I can limp beside you
And follow in your rush too
Hang on, street savant
My bank in my pocket
How far you think you’ll take us?
You’re like a party I heard through the wall
~ “Dilettante” by St. Vincent
I thought a song by St. Vincent was a perfect choice for a dress by LeeZu. Both throw together colors, patterns, ideas into a melange of perfect sound and thought. LeeZu’s latest mesh has ruching in the back and front and a little lace peekaboo slip at the hem. Other creators would make this a simple shape; LeeZu does more with it. Then she applies her amazing art, combing graphic color with actual feel-touch textures and detail.
I added one of Abraxxa Anatine’s jewelry sets for Mystic Realms Faire to the look. Obviously this is meant for some elven look but it works just as well with a regular outfit which bespeaks its stylishness and versatility. Nails from Cyclic Gears for My Slink Obsession give me a stylish orange metallic touch.
Gina Lurra has created a pair of mesh boots with a HUD that allows you to change everything except the color of your underwear—vamp, heel, sole, studs, zipper, etc. She includes rigged and unrigged versions (for those of you who can’t resist tinkering).
Queue Marlowe has come out with a new style that is out to there in curls and style. Once again, Queue blew corkscrews out of the water with this look. It is made of bouncy flexi prims with a color-change hairband. My skin is Aleida Rhode’s sensual coppery skin for the Body Modification Expo. With a beautifully shaded body and a lovely face, it’s a great offer at the Expo. I added a slick of gloss from Mocksoup Graves to soften the look.
