The Tease

I don’t want it if it’s that easy”

I am dressed to tease from the 100 Block, another one of the Depraved Nation’s fashion extravaganzas, which is opening April 9. Yeah, sorry, you have to contain your fashion lust for a few more days while I tease you (and you know how I like to tease). Start with this dangerously sexy lace mini-dress from Missqwerty Pevensey (she of the amazingly impossible-to-type name), a mesh confection for wowing the boys at the club. Pull on stockings from Lisanna Lauria with garters down the thighs and then over-the knee-boots from Ydreece Forster, and you have a complete look, all from the 100 Block.

I wiggled into this gorgeous skin from Nicole Button. I loved what she did for Skin Fair with her newest skins and now she has released them fully. I wear the skin untouched by makeup, and it’s absolutely gorgeous. I will wear this one over and over and others she has produced. They are just that lovely. My short hair is Chiaki Xue’s newest release, a unisexy style that comes in Chiaki’s full complement of colors.

My dream someday is to knit a sweater or dress or skirt. I have managed scarves (many of them), a few hats, a few shawls, mittens, even socks, but sweaters are daunting. I once knew a beautiful Russian woman who could knit dresses for her gorgeous self without a pattern.

This dress from Ariadne Garrigus reminded me of Svetlana’s skill. With a cable running down the length of the dress and a thick chunky brown yarn, the dress is lovely for cold winter days. The belt would appear to be white in my photos but it’s actually tan—the materials setting in the SL Viewer picks up the sheen Arianda gave it.

The new hat and hair set from Mirja Mills is a perfect accompaniment to the dress. Also knit in a chunky yarn, the scarf comes with a color change HUD as does the hat on the hair. I am loving the options these give to any look. My skin is Ydreece Forster’s newest. She is changing her brand name from Mirror’s Enigma to Morphine so if you hear about Morphine skins, that’s the old Mirror’s Enigma. Ydreece gives a fresh look to her skins. Without a lot of makeup, the skins are a perfect palette for cosmetic layers, though I opted for the simple bare look.
