Being Miss Daisy

Midsummer and the daisies are in full bloom!

Being Miss Daisy

The cicadas sawing in the trees and I am writing this blog before I rush off to the pool. I will be wearing a breezy summery dress from dirty Adored with a sweet short skirt with soft floaty prims. With its pretty cotton floral material and buttoned up and buckled top, this has a country flair, perfect for picking daisies. Her textures are rich and evocative. I am looking forward to seeing more from dirty.

I pair it with this darling hat from Reghan Straaf, one of my girlfriends in Hey Girlfriends and a considerable hat maker in SL. Her textures and shapes are unbeatable, and this daisy hat is sure to charm smiles out of even the flowers. I also wear a little daisy on my finger from my dear friend Callie. It has a huge color change stone in the middle (because Callie’s all about the size) which I have made a diamond. I also wear an older hair from Stumbelina Ophelia that has been begging for attention and suits this ensemble perfectly with daisies near the nape of the neck.

Finally, I wear a fresh young skin from Gala Phoenix. Gala, as I have said before, has been in world since the beginning of my time (my first skin was from Gala) and has wisely kept an eye on changing tastes, making skins to suit her customers’ desires and needs.

Voyage

SL is a kind of voyage—of imagination. In this case, Zaara Kohime’s imagination takes over with this outfit (I hit her 50% sale, clearly). This cute little dress with its shorty glitch pants underneath is flirty and pretty all at once, employing lacy cap sleeves over a beautifully textured embroidered bodice and satiny skirt.

The skin is a beautiful new skin for brunettes from Mallory Cowen. We get again the luminescence of Mallory’s glow line with a darker shade to the eyebrows and pretty makeups so appropriate for brunettes. I include two different jewelry purchases from Zaara, the exquisite turquoise and silver cluster earrings with leaves and a lovely flowery ring. Not many can pull off clothing and jewelry both. Either they have the system pieces down and prims are not quite right or the prim work is lovely without the texture artistry. Zaara has both in hand, which is why she is so popular.

My hair is a lovely updo secured by chopsticks from Jungeun Vella and shoes are pretty bowed slingbacks from Cerberus Noel. My poses come from the always friendly Rogan Diesel, who is having a 50% sale on his poses this week!

Looking good at 50% off (without half of it falling off ;))
