Crazy

I’m crazy for crying
I’m crazy for trying
I’m crazy for loving you

~ “Crazy” by Willie Nelson

The song has nothing whatsoever to do with what I am going to show, but it came on the station I listen to and reminded me of how Eshi and I saw Willie Nelson exactly this time last year at Summerfest. <3 Eshi :)

Crazy

This ensemble is less crazy than elegant. The dress, by Kimmera Madison, shows Kimmera’s standard excellence (how can I make such perfect work sound so ordinary?). From the sexy mandarin-collared halter to the split-leg skirt, the sexiness is more in what is not shown but hinted at than what is shown. Kimmera, in her typical fashion, pays equal attention to the details—check out the frog closures on the collar and the bustle, adding drama to the outfit.

Crazy

I wear a new hair from Truth Hawks, who has clearly tapped into some grid-wide zeitgeist with his streaked hair. Every week I can’t wait to see what he’s streaking next! (That really sounds so wrong.) I show beautiful shoes from Lissa Maertens and Melanie Zhao that carry the brocade to the tips of my toes.

Feeling Purple

I was feeling a little purple today. Perhaps it was the grape jelly on my peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Maybe it was the blueberries I ate with them. Not sure, but I had to have purple.

Feeling Purple

I started with this lovely dress from Mimikri Kit. I have secretly been a fan of Mimikri’s for a while, ever since a few items in one of her satellite stores took me to her main store, which had only a few more pieces. Now she has a completely full two story boutique with imaginative and fashion forward pieces covering the walls. The print has purple and blue themes and a beautiful Asian floral print entwined with black lace. Spectacular.

Feeling Purple

Mimikri’s system pieces are exact and very well done. Though I show a dress without prims, I will attest to her great prim building abilities and her ingenuity in texturing and rearranging prims. She has been working hard on creating clothing and pushing her boundaries—you can see it as you cam from the top floor, with her older content, down to the main floor. Mimikri clearly isn’t satisfied throwing a new texture on the same old skirt. She’s pushing into new territory and learning new skills with each piece. And it looks like she’s having a lot of fun doing it.

Feeling Purple

I topped the dress with a flirty Dorothy Hamill cut from *booN. Leave it to boo Nakamura to take an old hair cut and make it new with choppy ends and a slight purple tinge.

Feeling Purple

I added AnaLee Balut’s jewelry. She does some amazing jewelry—very couture and very fun. I love how her beads float around the neck and wrist.

Shoes from Melanie Zhao and Lissa Maertens finish the look. This is a new foray for Lissa, who clearly contributed the textures while Melanie contributed the building skills. The texture was a gorgeous silky purple chinoiserie.

I did miss being able to use Melanie’s resizer script on these shoes. While they were cute, I did need to manually adjust them a bit, and I am getting spoiled from all these great shoe makers’ huds.

Feeling Purple

Purple, but not like Violet Beauregard:
