“The constant happiness is curiosity.” ~ Alice Munro


I named the post “Jaded” because of the jade in my jewelry and not because of a feeling of jadedness. In fact, I think the antidote to that feeling is curiosity. I am curious, of course, of juxtaposing different ideas and in this look, I am combining pieces from the Fantasy Gacha Carnival (opening soon) and elegance from AvaGardner Kungler. First, this gown, which Ava “whipped up” with her characteristic savoir with textures and proportion. It’s a simple gown with an overlaid sheer skirt but the glittering of the bodice and the seams make it fantastic. Paired with her deco jade necklace, it’s a classy look.


Shylah Honey recently put out this updo with a lock of hair hanging down. It comes with their texture-changing HUD and gives a new twist to “formal” with the romantic looseness of the hair. My skin with its arresting liner is Shyla Diggs’ offer for the Black Fashion Festival, opening soon. And my captivating jade eyes are Umazuma Metaluna’s featured item for Chapter Four, available in a dozen colors.

You can get this lovely teahouse as a “rare” at the Fantasy Gacha Carnival, designed by Paco Pooley with several accessories also available. And my pretty parasol is one of several accessories at the same carnival from Sohma Dix.
