Old School

You know, if you pull out older content, you find out that the designers of the past were pretty darn good.

Old School

Take this dress from Blaze Columbia. Blaze starts with rock solid system pieces in a sexy champagne color with wrinkles and seductive shadowing, showing a satin moving against soft skin. Then he adds beautiful diaphanous prims with draped satin running through them, for the skirt and a slit up to there side. No seams, no disjunctures, just sexiness from top to bottom. Many dress makers that have followed him have not quite hit his formula but they sure want to try.

Old School

Then Elikapeka Tiramisu’s beautifully constructed and textured hair, one of my all time favorites. How many hair makers have pulled apart her hair to see how she did it and took tips and ideas from her brilliant work? I wear a group gift from Tuli Asturias, the tan and luscious Tanya, which is available at her store. Tuli is another one of those classic designers in SL who sets the mark.

Dream in Aubergine

A night out on the town. Now if you have a special someone, you know that you want to look your glamorous best. Even if you don’t, you want to show yourself in the best light.

Dream in Aubergine

Sascha Frangilli’s newest release, Malicious, will take you there. With its beautifully embroidered textures, versatility and gracefulness, this dress is pure glamour in one folder. The dress comes complete with several options—I show two here. She gives you SIX prim skirts alone (listed here because the names crack me up): the Big Sucker, the Battleship, the Swooshy, the Sleek Flexi, the Thin Flexi, and the Cocktail Flexi. And then there’s the Train. (The trim on the front? That’s the Chest Frillies.)

Dream in Aubergine

I chose to show this in Purple but it comes in many other colors including Cognac, Emerald, Gold, Indigo, Magenta, Mandarin, Pink, Red, Silver and Turquoise. There really is not reason not to get one—or two—or five.

Dream in Aubergine

Since the whole theme here is purple, I paired this with a subtly tinted purply hair from ETD and amethyst RFL earrings from Abraxxa Anatine. Pulse has just come out with this skin–Wildflower–which suits the theme perfectly. And I ran and got my FAVORITE shoes (as you all have had to hear about a million times), the slingbacks from SKG shoes—this time in Eggplant. (The real question here is how many ways can you say purple?)

Dream in Aubergine

I will wear purple as a young woman (and not just as an old woman):
