The Isle of Capri

One of the benefits of living this life is that I have friends all over the world who travel all over the world. I have received purses from Singapore, spices from Croatia, and recently, photos of a Capri sunset. So while I am stuck at home with a new dog and hot muggy weather, I get an update on everyone else’s vacation. So I thought I would dress up in this tropical look to imagine my own vacation on the Isle of Capri. Start with this beautiful tropical print dress from Kim Lysette, which includes a texture-change HUD allowing several different tropical looks with coordinating belt. Then add the gorgeous almost-antique necklace Sigifaust is featuring at Shiny Shabby. It includes a HUD for switching out the metal pieces. Finally, shoes from Aleida Rhode, great wedges that fit both Slink and Maitreya feet.

I couldn’t help but use the LeLutka mesh head applier from Monicuzza Babenco that she is featuring at this month’s Shiny Shabby. For some reason, I love in particular how she has managed to make a useful applier with makeup choices and a gorgeous skin and wonderful features that suits all the head shapes. Kuranosuke Kamachi’s newest hair was a perfect fit for this vacation look with great textures and with this particular color, a great fade to sunkissed, bleached ends.

Her three looks proves she has developed her work over the years. With a great texture-change HUD and a clear desire to make styles in her vision, getting a Mina hair means you will be getting something well crafted which doesn’t look like all the others.

The Best of What Might Be

The Best of What Might Be

“Summertime is always the best of what might be.” ~ Charles Bowden

The Best of What Might Be

Summertime brings so much light and happiness, which is good because it needs to hold me through the other parts of the year. I put on this little dress from Kim Lysette, who has opened her own store with her partner, Dean, and remembered what summer is all about. With separate texture change for both the top and the skirt, I can make up a variety of looks with this one dress and it’s available at a ridiculously low price. Kim has always had terrific textures and a great sense of style, so her new store is bound to have something for everyone. My look is accented with bangles from Monicuzza Babenco, one of many selections at Oh My Gacha, and my shoes are a charming look with diamond studded fish bones from Ashleey Andrew. I saw this handbag from ThePierrot at Origami and had to have it.

Aleida Rhode put out this skin at Anybody and it comes with every kind of applier imaginable. I have heard from several designers what a tedious bit of work it is doing appliers, so when you put on your mesh body, thank that creator in your head. I added to her lovely face with liner from Constance Daehlie and lipgloss from Soleil Reid. Shylah Honey is featuring this darling side-swept ponytail at Season’s Story when it opens. With strands coming loose, it’s a perfect idea of my summer: casual and fun.
