Dress Up

One of the most appealing features of SL, of course, is the ability to dress up our avatars. This game of dress up is an entire dissertation in itself. Let’s just leave it at liking to put together pretty colors for today ;)

Dress Up

I got this little dress from youki Cioc’s eclectic store a while ago and have been trying to find a time and place to show it. I love the multiple layers of prims, the big blooming cabbage rose print, the lovely use of the shoulder pieces and armlets. I had been wearing Pixieplumb Flanagan’s new little sneakers and the color matched perfectly while the style was a tomboyish juxtaposition, so why not? A pair of lacey ankled socks from Naoki Ninetails just made the look complete.

Dress Up

When I put together outfits it’s always an odd process. I have to be inspired by something—a song, a quote, the start of look. This time it was the freckles I got from Launa Fauna. I had seen freckles on another avatar as a tattoo layer and I found them charming. This inexpensive tattoo layer really did the trick layered over Alexandra Barcelos’ new Kiona skin (which I am wearing twice in a row here, but isn’t it just perfect?). Then I popped on this ginger hair from Queue Marlowe (who is off to the Continent for a few weeks—I miss her already) and this darling hat from siestabrill Nitely. What a gorgeous face.
